Timothy Zahn’s next Star Wars novel has a very cool-looking cover! The artwork for the previously-announced “Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances” (featuring appearances by none other than the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader) was unveiled on today’s installment of Lucasfilm’s official Star Wars news webseries “The Star Wars Show.”

“‘Thrawn – Alliances’ will follow the Grand Admiral as he embarks on a secret mission for the Emperor.” The novel is a sequel to this year’s highly-successful “Star Wars: Thrawn,” which finally gave an in-canon origin story for one of Zahn’s most popular character contributions to the Star Wars galaxy.

“Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances” will be available from retailers beginning Tuesday, June 26th, 2018.
