I've loved the X-Wing series since I was a kid, so naturally I had looked forward to listening to a finale worth the wait... But sadly, I didn't feel this story did the Wraiths the justice they deserved.
Narration by Marc, always amazing, but the story just seemed to never really amount to much of anything at all.
To see the old squadron back together again, with great new faces and characters. Red squadron was one of my favorite book series and I'm glad to be able to read about them again.

The music and sound effects really made a great addition to the book. Stuff like doors swooshing open, blast shots and wookie roars give it that little extra bump at drawing you in.
Besides Face sounding like Captain Kirk? When I read I often don't associate voices with characters so he brought more life to the characters.
The moment where Piggy realized that Scut had grown up admiring him.
I love the cameo appearances from members of the old wraith squadron.
It is hard to make a Gamorean likeable but Piggy is the exception.
Not bad, by any means - good book, well read... while some of the charters are familiar from previous books in the x-wing series, it just doesn't feel like the other x-wing books...

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good Star Wars stories and spy stories.
I'm not sure of what books I would compare this to, but I think a good comparison is the TV show Leverage. Wraith Squadron works along similar lines running cons to get revenge against corrupt individuals.
Um, "Yay Audiobooks?"
Old characters like good friends. Expansion of new people and cleaning of loose ends. All around a wonderful entry by Aaron Allston.
Nice to get some solid Piggy action.
As always he captures Star Wars perfectly.
Wanted to, yes, did? No. It was wonderfully complex, I kept going back and catching things I had missed.
A spy caper and a wonderful Star Wars Novel.
