The Alliance Fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord. Tyrant Ysanne Isard has taken control of Thyferra, intending to use its supply of medicinal bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. Undermanned and deprived of Alliance support, Rogue Squadron must oppose Isard's plans, defeat her Star Destroyer fleet, and free Thyferra from her rule in a winner-take-all battle against a seemingly superior force.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ross | 2/2/2014

    " This book was the best so far in the series! I continue to be amazed by the series! Outstanding! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 12/18/2013

    " This is my second favorite Star Wars author. He's very similar to and almost as good as Timothy Zahn. T.Z.'s are cleaner, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lidia | 12/14/2013

    " It probably deserves less than four stars but I enjoyed it enough to round up. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 11/2/2013

    " I read a lot of Star Wars novels in Jr. High. It took a few dozen books before I realized many of them just weren't all that stellar. The X-Wing series of books were a little better than most, in sheer entertainment. But they are all air and no substance, as I recall. Fun, but not much more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 10/17/2013

    " This is one of my favourites of this series, if not my favourite. Plenty of action and drama, and the established characters are written perfectly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick Nilsen | 10/5/2013

    " Read in high school. Remember really enjoying it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wesley | 9/26/2013

    " Loved the squadron and love the covers. Story is okay...better than average for comic writers doing novels. I enjoyed them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charity | 12/10/2012

    " This was a good end to the Isanne Ysard reign! I would say the series, but I know this continues on into a couple more books. :) I really enjoyed this book and the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/5/2012

    " A satisfying finish to the beginning four book story arc of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loren | 12/9/2011

    " Out of all the X-Wing series books this is my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 12/31/2010

    " While it's not my favorite of the first part of the X-Wing saga, Stackpole did a good job of bringing this part of the story to a satisfying end. I don't have any specific negative criticism of this book. I just didn't enjoy it as much as the first three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Thaxton | 10/29/2010

    " A satisfying conclusion to the 4 novel arc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrickderaaff | 10/12/2010

    " Well written, but not as good as the previous part of this series. Still, a must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 2/5/2010

    " Probably ought to be 3.5, but I wanted to give Stackpole credit for successfully finishing a series in less than a dozen books. (No small accomplishment these days.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Monroy | 5/27/2009

    " By far the best book in the series; with exciting space combat and stolen Star Destroyers. Stackpole's novels are among the most interesting Star Wars books around because he understands that there are more stories to tell beyond focusing on the well known film characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 12/4/2007

    " Sounds a lot like "The Bacterial World"- otherwise, I don't remember anything about this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 3/7/2007

    " Of all the books in Stackpole's part of the X-Wing series, this is probably my favorite part. It's a lot of fun, and it brings the arc begun in Rogue Squadron to a satisfying conclusion. "
