about

The intrepid spies, pilots, and sharpshooters of Wraith Squadron are back in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which transpires just after the events of the Fate of the Jedi series!
 
Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand—for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission.
 
A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire. With orders to expose and apprehend the traitor—and license to do so by any and all means—the Wraiths will become thieves, pirates, impostors, forgers . . . and targets, as they put their guts, their guns, and their riskiest game plan to the test against the most lethal of adversaries.

“A rare entry point for newbies to the Star Wars expanded universe.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and more than half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xwing mercy kill Why can't we see this in a movie! Great characters, a fast paced plot, loads of action and not a skywalker to be seen. Truly a fantastic read for fans of the movies (the three good ones). The author has left some very big shoes to fill in his passing, george himself would be hard pressed to write a better star wars tale than this. Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing some of the old magic 13 years after the last book in this series, the wraiths are back. Now memories can get fuzzy after all this time but I can't help but feel that the first 9 books were so much more enjoyable than this latest installment. The focus away from Wedge and Tycho, one of which makes a cameo the other only mentioned, forced on us a whole slew of new characters. This makes sense based on the time period involved but fell short of my expectations when first opening the book. The first half of the book was mediocre at best with bouncing back and fourth between past and present. The last third redeemed this book as past and present found their relation and comfort level with the characters increased. I can see this as the first part of a new arc in the X-Wing series and one that could be enjoyable provided it continues to grow from the latter half of this opening chapter.
