Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Not what I hoped for..."

    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.

    "Bad story"

    I really had trouble finishing this one. The characters are just so unbelievably horribly written!

    "loved it"

    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.

    Story
    "The Wraiths are back!"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: X-Wing: Mercy Kill the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment where Piggy realized that Scut had grown up admiring him.

    "A fun romp with the next generation!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the cameo appearances from members of the old wraith squadron.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    It is hard to make a Gamorean likeable but Piggy is the exception.

    "Good, but not great..."

    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...

    "Wraith Squadron is back!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good Star Wars stories and spy stories.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: X-Wing: Mercy Kill to and why?

    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.

    Story
    "After the long Arc, a very pleasant change."
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: X-Wing: Mercy Kill the most enjoyable?

    Old characters like good friends. Expansion of new people and cleaning of loose ends. All around a wonderful entry by Aaron Allston.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nice to get some solid Piggy action.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As always he captures Star Wars perfectly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Wanted to, yes, did? No. It was wonderfully complex, I kept going back and catching things I had missed.


    Any additional comments?

    A spy caper and a wonderful Star Wars Novel.
