Publisher's Summary

Sleek, swift and deadly, the famed X-Wing fighters have earned their reputation as the Rebel Alliance's ultimate strike force the hard way: first in battle, the last line of defense. Now they must make a deal with the devil herself: an enemy whose ultimate goal is their total annihilation.

It's the kind of mission only Wedge Antilles and the Rogue Squadron would dare to undertake. Against impossible odds, they will stage a daring raid into an enemy stronghold, only to be rescued from certain destruction by an unexpected ally.

Ysanne Isard, the ruthless Imperial commander, has appeared on the scene seemingly from out of nowhere. Now she proposes a most unusual alliance, offering to help Wedge rescue his captured comrades from Imperial Warlord Admiral Krennel's sadistic prison camp.

But her offer is not without a price. Wedge must lead Rogue Squadron in Isard's deadly struggle against an enemy made in her own image. It's an offer Wedge would love to refuse, for Isard is certain to betray them. But how can they leave their comrades at Krennel's mercy? The answer: they can't, even if it means being caught between Krennel's ruthlessness and Isard's treachery.

Hard to listen to voices w/out Marc Thompson’s voice

Abridged is always a huge let down - you know you’re missing a lot and scenes seem incomplete.

The story itself is okay. I imagine the unabridged version would be much better

It’s very, very hard to enjoy Anthony Herald after just hearing The Hand of Thrawn duology. Marc Thompson’s voicing of Wedge, Corran Horne, Mirax, Booster, Talin Card, etc. are so distinctive and don’t sound like Marc’s narrator voice at all.

The best of the series.

The same issues remain with the abridgement, but as noticeable in this book. I love the series and despite the annoyances, I'd recommend it to anyone.
