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.

This was a great book I am disappointed,that with the reboot and the untimely death of the author, that we won't have another wraith story. The characters were fun and developed adequately. Piggy coming full circle and putting to rest his unrealized demons was rewarding to read IMO. I highly recommend this book.
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.
