    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.

    Story

    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...

    Story

    The Rebels have taken the Imperial headquarters world of Coruscant, but their problems are far from over. A killer virus called Krytos is spreading among the population and fomenting a counter-revolution at the same time as the treason trial of Rebel hero Tycho Celchu. As the X-wing fighters scramble to save the rebellion, pilot Corran Horn, given up for dead in an "inescapable" prison, discovers an extraordinary power in himself, the power of the Force!

    Story

    While I enjoy Anthony Heald in his movies... whoever directed him to read the majority of the voices in this book with a British / Scottish accent needs to have his head examined... Not only was this a bad choice (a couple would be fine - but damn near everyone is way overkill), but the accent itself - wow, just bad. All this coming from a NY born actor - if you want a EU accent - get someone from the EU to read it!

    And then the abridging - again - Missing some major details from the book, almost to the point of a incomplete story. It just went way too far on this one.

    It is the evil heart of a battered and reeling Empire: Coruscant, the giant city-world from whose massive towers the Imperial High Command directs the war. The Rebels will invade this mighty citadel in a daring move to bring the Empire to its knees. But first Wedge Antilles and his X-wing pilots must infiltrate Coruscant to gain vital intelligence information. Capture means death or, worse, enslavement by the vicious leader known as "Iceheart": Ysanne Isard, now Emperor in all but name.

    Jason says: "Good, but SEVERELY abridged."

    Henry Thomas's performance is good, but some of the charters sound too similar. It lacks the details that make it a really good book, as the abridged story just leaves out too much of what make the book so much more enjoyable and complete.

    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!
