They are the galaxy's most elite fighting force. And as the battle against the Empire rages, the X-wing fighters risk life and machine to protect the Rebel Alliance. Now they must go on a daring undercover mission as the crew of an Imperial warship.

It is Wedge Antilles' boldest creation: a covert-action unit of X-wing fighters, its pilots drawn from the dregs of other units, castoffs and rejects given one last chance. But before the new pilots can complete their training, the squadron's base is attacked by former Imperial admiral Trigit, and Wraith Squadron is forced to swing into action, taking over an Imperial warship and impersonating its crew. The mission: to gain vital intelligence about Trigit's secret weapons, to sabotage the admiral's plans, and to lure him into an Alliance trap. But the high-stakes gamble pits Wraith Squadron's ragtag renegades against the Empire's most brilliant master of guile and deception.

Are they up to the challenge?

If not, the penalty is instant death.

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

    " I love the entire X-Wing series, but the books by Aaron Allston are my favorite, of which Wraith Squadron is the first. I like how he writes humor into the books. If you like Star Wars, but have never read any of the books, this series is a good one to get you into them. "

    " The 5th book in the X-Wing series, Aaron Allston's "Wraith Squadron" is actually a nice change of pace from what has been a rather dull run of stories lately. This time around we have Wedge Antilles assembling a group of X-Wing pilots from various groups that aren't attached to anyone anymore. However, an attack on their base sends gives this new group a new purpose in the Rebellion itself. Allston's story is refreshing with new characters & a new outlook on this series that had grown stale. The action & new characters a nice addition to this series as we essentially get a lot more of the action & intrigue with things that have made this series worth following. A nice return to action for a series with another 4 remaining. "

    " A nice continuation of the X-Wing series. It expands on the previous books, but starts fresh with a new squardon. The same amount of technical information about the EU, if not more, than the Rogue Squadron books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Howard | 12/27/2013

    " Although I really enjoyed all the X-wing series, It took me a while to warm up to Wraith Squadron "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rory (Nightwyrm) | 11/30/2013

    " Definitely an improvement in writing styles over Stackpole's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Del | 1/11/2013

    " I am not infallible. While I rage against the Twilight and Harry Potter lovers, I love me some good god damn pew-pew space lasers, and Aaron Allston is better than most at it. "

    " hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm like before i love Star wars and always will pretty much! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 3/15/2012

    " A new twist to the X-Wing Series, I was leery at first, but Allston quickly wins you over with deft characterization and witty dialogue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise Smith | 7/27/2011

    " Absolutely adored this book, I've read it more times than I can count. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/26/2009

    " I had a lot of fun reading this book. A perfect blend of humor and action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mauri | 5/8/2009

    " This was the first X-Wing squadron book that I ever read. A boy ahead of me in school unwisely left his copy outside of the science building and I stole it without remorse. This book led to my love of Wedge Antilles, snubfighters, and enhanced in me my wish to go into space. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 10/17/2007

    " It's sort of like Rogue Squadron, but a bit dirtier. Most of the characters have something bad in their pasts, but now Wedge Antilles is giving them a second chance. It's a whole lot of fun, really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Rushing | 4/16/2007

    " I liked this book but it is a little too derivative of Rogue Squadron. Still the characters are fun and the series looks like it will continue well. "
