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.

Listener Opinions

    " Confused, boring and unfunny. The Wraiths are dead. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Landon | 2/16/2014

    " A good quick read, but Mercy Kill suffered from the same problem common to all of the X-wing books. It seems like no matter what, nothing ever goes truly wrong for the heros of Wraith or Rogue squadrons. The enemy never throws any surprise punches the operatives haven't already prepared for. Maybe they really are that good, but it also makes the books feel a bit . . . predictable. This is a one-time-read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher | 1/27/2014

    " Action, adventure, mystery, and fascinating characters. A fun ride with Wraith Squadron. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cale | 1/12/2014

    " This was a fun return to some favorite characters from the Wraith Squadron series, and even a couple of Rogue Squadron characters. It's interesting to see the next generation, and to hear what happened to some of the old members (one in particular was rather sad). The present-day story isn't quite as good as the previous books; it feels a little too scattered and the villain didn't seem particularly menacing. And the almost total absence of any starfighting was a little odd for a series that grew out of a series on starfighters. But those are nitpicks - seeing the story from Voort's eyes was an interesting approach, and some of the tactics and humor were lots of fun. It's enough to make me want to get back into the two 9-book series of post New-Jedi-Order books that I still haven't gotten to. "

    " Though this book has none of the usual characters we have come to know in this galaxy, this is a quick-paced easy to read novel full of action, intrigue and twists that will leave you asking for more. As usual for me, it did end a little bit too abruptly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett | 12/22/2013

    " Really glad to get back into this series. I enjoyed it easily as well as the earlier wraith books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kenneth Flusche | 12/16/2013

    " Worce star wars book I ever read, or maybe it's me so far behind could not remember the characters of the squadron. I admit after plowing along for a week I quit the book for something more intertaining "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathaniel Wolfolk | 12/4/2013

    " It was a ok read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 11/29/2013

    " Fun quick read, and maybe we'll get another Wraith Squadron novel soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zack | 10/14/2013

    " Not quite as good as the first nine, but definitely true to them. Very shallow character development, but the foundations are good. May be worth doing more with them. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jason | 9/23/2013

    " Could not get into it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 6/8/2013

    " I've read all the books in the series & I was surprised to see this one at the library. Good to see new faces and old ones as Wraith Squadron carries on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 2/20/2013

    " brilliant story, brought me back to my childhood reading previous x-wing novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheridan | 1/20/2013

    " Quite simple review: I forgot how good Star Wars books could be. This book was fun, energetic, heartfelt, emotional, and all around Star Wars. Love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fedora | 1/13/2013

    " Fun, engaging addition to the Star Wars universe :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 12/13/2012

    " Everything I want in a Star Wars novel: action, adventure, intrigue, hilarity, feels, great characters, great relationships between characters, conflict, conflict resolution, and Wedge Antilles. :) Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phillip | 11/3/2012

    " A very fun book to read. I was 5 years old in 1977 when Star Wars was first in the theaters. I've loved the movies ever since. I won this one from Good Reads, and can't wait to read the first book in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megh | 9/25/2012

    " I like the jumpy nature of the narration -- it bounces back and forth between two timelines. "
