They are the X-wing fighters: sleek, swift, and deadly. And as the battle against the Empire rages across the vastness of space, the pilots risk both their lives and their machines for the cause of the Rebel Alliance. Now they must embark on a dangerous espionage mission, braving betrayal and death on the Imperial homeworld to smash the power of a ruthless foe!

It is at the evil heart of a battered and reeling Empire: Coruscant, the giant city-world from whose massive towers the Imperial High Command directs the war. The Rebels will invade this mighty citadel in a daring move to bring the Empire to its knees. But first Wedge Antilles and his X-wing pilots must infiltrate Coruscant to gain vital intelligence information.

Capture means death or, worse, enslavement by the vicious leader known as Iceheart: Ysanne Isard, now Emperor in all but name. And one of Rogue Squadron's own is already her slave, a traitor hidden behind a mask of innocence, working to betray both colleagues and the Rebellion itself.

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Thaxton | 1/13/2014

    " Decent book - enjoyed the first one a little more I think, but still a fun read. I can see why so many people think highly of the X-Wing series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrickderaaff | 12/31/2013

    " A real page turner and better than the first part of the classic X-Wing series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 11/24/2013

    " This book is absolutely amazing. Not what I was expecting at all in light of the previous book, but needless to say, it blew me away. Outstanding! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin | 11/17/2013

    " Another great book in my all-time favorite Star Wars series. Stackpole needs to return to the X-Wing series, maybe during the time between Empire and Jedi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/10/2013

    " A good continuation, although probably the weakest of the Rogue Squadron series. Still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 7/16/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Howard | 12/31/2012

    " 2nd book of the X-Wing Series. The enjoyed the ongoing character development in this book, though I felt that it was a little slower than the first. This was the book that I decided that Coran Horn was going to become a stable figure in the Star Wars Universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 7/27/2012

    " Truly enjoyed the action and the characters- makes me want to watch the Star Wars movies again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 6/24/2012

    " Not my favorite X-Wing book, but still a lot of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lidia | 1/28/2012

    " Was probably more like 3.75 stars but close enough... Definitely better than book 1. But saw the ending coming and hated it as expected. I feel I have no choice but to read book 3 asap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/13/2012

    " I wish we had more SW books written like this nowadays. Fast-paced, multilayered and just plain GOOD. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 8/25/2011

    " The Rebellion wants to control the heart of the galaxy, Corescant. I loved their plan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Allen | 7/11/2011

    " This is certainly worth the read. It chronicles the Rebel conquest of Imperial Center. While there is not as much flying in this story, I still enjoyed reading it. Again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 6/8/2011

    " all the X-wing series are amazing. love'em "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlos | 3/28/2011

    " great read some of the drawing could've been better the last story made every one look like they were in need of sleep but then again maybe they were "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla | 9/27/2010

    " This book was as good as the previous Rouge Squadron graphic novel. I liked how it had a lot of action and didn't have very many slow parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 7/29/2010

    " My major complaint about this graphic novel is that it was short. The stories were all right, but were mostly very predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Khairul H. | 10/28/2007

    " Like the first Omnibus collection, the stories were enjoyable to read but the artwork should and could have been better. This is the reason I won't be getting the third volume. "
