Publisher's Summary

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!

Wrong narrator listed!!!!!!

This is not narrated by Anthony Heald, rather it is Henry Thomas. disappointed with the false listing. Henrys narration leaves a lot to be desired.

Love these books

These are a really fun read about the aftermath and growth of the New Republic after the fall of the Empire, even though these stories are now "legend" stories with the new cannon being developed. The stories really hold up.

Good Listen.

While the story is good and the narration satisfactory the breaks between scenes are not pronounced causing a bit of confusion.

too abridged

I would like to have heard more of the story . There were some parts that I would've liked to have heard the story as opposed to a summary.

Almost hard to listen too.

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.

The third X-Wing

If you could sum up Star Wars in three words, what would they be?

Everlasting Entertainment Eternal

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars?

From this book, I'd say the SSD blasting out of Coruscant

Which scene was your favorite?

See previous answer.

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

Absolutely! This isn't the first time I've listened to this book. Despite its being very abridged (as were most of the earlier Star Wars books), it's still most entertaining and portrayed all of the relevant parts of the story.

Any additional comments?

Despite what it reads in this ad, this particular book is NOT narrated by Anthony Heald, but by Henry Thomas (Elliott from E.T.), who also read the first two X-Wing titles. Heald took over with the 4th book, "The Bacta War".

The trial of Tyco Selcu

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

Yes, I enjoyed reading (listening to) this audiobook. I am a Star Wars fan and the continuing story is really great to read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars?

The meeting at Alderan, this was the centre plot of the book and everything went wrong from this point. The dramatic moments all harked back to the meeting and it built towards the suspence of the story.

Which scene was your favorite?

Where they discovered who the tratior was and dealt with him.

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

I couldn't put it down until I had heard the whole story.

Any additional comments?

I want to listen again. It was well written, and I want to see more of these books in the future.

Excellent addition to the story of Rogue Squadron

Now that the New Republic have taken the diseased planet Coroscant they must deal with the fact that Tycho Celchu has been arrested for the murder of Corran Horn and is on trial defended by Nawara Ven.

Meanwhile we discover that Corran Horn is actually alive and being held prisoner by the head of Imperial intelligence Ysanne Issard in Lusankya. He is determined to escape and with the help of other Rebel prisoners he eventually manages to do so. Whilst also discovering that Tycho was never an Imperial agent. And in fact has the same resistance grade as he himself was given 'resistance on primary phase.'

On his escape he discovers that Lusankya is actually an Imperial SSD hidden on Coroscant. He finds himself in a hidden part of a museum that contains a hoard of Jedi belongings. He takes a lightsaber to help in his escape. He then battles a few guards who have been sent to kill the escapee. Using a communication device he contacts his robot to ask for assistance.

Meanwhile, Issard orders the Lusankya to leave the planet, this is where all the parts of the story come together. Corran appears in the court as a witness for Tycho in the murder case, The rest of Rogue Squadron are battling the Lusankya which is firing at the planet's shields in an attempt to leave. And Wedge discovers that the true traitor in Rogue Squadron is Erisi Dlarit. Who joins the Lusankya on its escape from Coroscant.

At the end of this book there is a public announcement that Tycho's loyalty is beyond question as is his innocence. And it is revealed to all that part of the reason that this is known is the fact that Corran Horn is alive after all etc etc.
