The Thrawn trilogy proved to be a turning point for both Zahn and the Star Wars franchise. It brought widespread appreciations from all over the world and as a result, all the three novels of the series successfully made it to the bestseller lists in the New York Times. The success of the series gave the much required motivation to Timothy Zahn for writing other novel series’ in the Young Adult genre such as the Dragonback series and the Conquerors’ trilogy series. Zahn earned his BAchelor of Science degree in the physics subject from the Michigan State University in the year 1973. After that, he moved to Illinois. He attended the University of Illinois at the Urban-Campaign and earned his M.S. degree in the year 1975 in physics. While pursuing his doctorate in physics, Zahn’s advisor became seriously ill and consequently died However, he did not stop his studies due to the tragical incident and went on to complete his doctorate.

Zahn had begun writing science fiction stories in the year 1975 as a hobby, but soon realized his keen interest in writing novels. As a result, he went on to become a professional writer after finishing his studies. As of today, Zahn lives in Bandon, Oregon along with his wife Anna Zahn and son Corwin Zahn. Zahn has described the day when he received his first offer from his agent. He was busy writing his first novel for this new publisher, Bantam Books around 4 o’clock on November 1, 1989. The phone bell rang and it was his agent Tim on the other end. He informed him about an interesting offer which changed his life and career completely.

The novel series ‘Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy’ written by Timothy Zahn consists of three novels published between the years 1991 and 1993. The first novel among the trilogy is the ‘Heir to the Empire’, which was published by the Bantam Spectra publishing house in the year 1991. The novel is based on the science fiction and fantasy genres and is in the fictional world of space galaxies. The plot of the novel revolves around the life of the main characters such as Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, Leia Organa and Mara Jade. The novel opens up with the introduction of the Return of Jedi, which is the Rebel Alliance. It has been over five years after the destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance. Along with that, it had also defeated the Emperor of Old Imperial Starfleet and Darth Vader and had also driven the remnants out of the Imperial Starfleet to a faraway corner of the galaxy. The introduction of Princes Leia and Han Solo shows them married to each other and expecting their Jedi Twins.

Also, Luke Skywalker is depicted as becoming the first Jedi Knight of Jedi, a post which had a long awaited line of contenders. Some thousand light years away, the last warlord of the emperor took the command over the destructed Imperial Fleet. He has made it ready to enter into a war against the new Republic. For fulfilling his ambitions, the dark warrior has been able to make a couple of discoveries. The discoveries posed a great threat to everything that the brave people of the Rebel Alliance had built by fighting hard. They feared that the discoveries of the dark warrior might destroy everything they had made over the years of struggle. The novel shows the descriptions of of explosive confrontations, mystery, invention and epic action sequences. The readers found the novel to be extremely interesting and worthy of being called a part of the Star Wars franchise.

The second novel of The Thrawn Trilogy was titled ‘Dark Force Rising’. It was published in the year 1992 by the Spectra publishing house and consists of the same characters from the first novel as the main characters. These included Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, Mara Jade and Leia Organa.
