Sleek, swift and deadly, the famed X-Wing fighters have earned
their reputation as the Rebel Alliance''s ultimate strike force the
hard way--first in battle, the last line of defense. Now
they must make a deal with the devil herself--an enemy whose
ultimate goal is their total annihilation.
It''s the kind of mission only Wedge Antilles and the Rogue
Squadron would dare to undertake. Against impossible
odds they will stage a daring raid into an enemy stronghold--only
to be rescued from certain destruction by an unexpected ally.
Ysanne Isard, the ruthless Imperial commander, has appeared on the
scene seemingly from out of nowhere. Now she proposes a
most unusual alliance, offering to help Wedge rescue his captured
comrades from Imperial Warlord Admiral Krennel''s sadistic prison
But her offer is not without a price. Wedge must lead
Rogue Squadron in Isard''s deadly struggle against an enemy made in
her own image. It''s an offer Wedge would love to
refuse, for Isard is certain to betray them. But how can
they leave their comrades at Krennel''s mercy? The
answer is: they can''t--even if it means being caught between
Krennel''s ruthlessness and Isard''s treachery.
