    They are the X-wing fighters: sleek, swift, and deadly. And as the struggle rages across the vastness of space, the fearless men and women who pilot them risk both their lives and their machines. Their mission: to defend the Rebel Alliance against a still powerful and battle-hardened Imperial foe in a last ditch effort to control the stars!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    An unabridged read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ambiant sounds during scenes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Pronunciation accuracy of specific 'Star Wars' names, ships, planets, etc. Obviously the reader hasn't been a fan for long, if at all.


    Could you see Star Wars being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I've read this series a few times and think there is plenty of substance for TV or movies. Hopefully not by the sci-fi channel... They can't match the CG or the casting to keep up with the original movies.

    The Alliance Fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord. Tyrant Ysanne Isard has taken control of Thyferra, intending to use its supply of medicinal bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. Undermanned and deprived of Alliance support, Rogue Squadron must oppose Isard's plans, defeat her Star Destroyer fleet, and free Thyferra from her rule in a winner-take-all battle against a seemingly superior force.

    What didn’t you like about Anthony Heald’s performance?

    Everybody is an old man with this readers voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all the books and looked forward to listening at work. The first three were rough with Henry Thomas; barley into book 4 and wishing they were done by Mr Thomas. Seems these books were read by whom ever would do the work. Fictional stories need to be done by those who can perform a miriad of voices. Christian Rummel, who narrated The Lost Fleet series, would be a great improvement. His ability made listening to a story I had never read/heard before, an amzing jorney.

    Story
    (2751)

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Can't deny the flawless precision of Campbell's RL military experience, coupled with the vast possibilities of space and a vivid imagination... Chomping at the bit for the next line, paragraph and chapter! Already queued ALL follow up books for purchase and I'm not done with the first.r


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack, who else?!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To hard to decide thus far... Just want more!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It sucks you in immediately.
