Finishing touches

This book brings all the previous books and the comic series to a successful and enjoyable climax. I have to admit that if you have not read the entire comic arc and the books than this may not make all that much sense. A lot of the references to the past refer to the latter half of the comic story arc. This is a good book that completely finishes off the series and shows you how things go down on the average man's point if view in the Thrawn crisis.

Very good

I was extreamly thrilled when Stackpole started writing the X-wing series again. Although Alston has done a formiable job, and provided tons of humor, Stackpole is king. I admit, Gavin Darklighter is my favorite character, so one who's read the book would understand why I was so mad. I use 'mad' strongly here, 'cause they won't let me type anything stronger. I did not understand Asyr's 'mission', nor did I get the need for Iella and Mirax to help her. It was ironic how Mirax was off helping Asyr, and Corran was helping Gavin. OK, that sorta gives it away. Sorry. :) I will say that this book *can* get boring at times, and I didn't understand some. But I thought it was worth my money, and hey, you can always return it and say the "I never read it" kinda thing. ~Nishana


This book was excellent and I suggest reading if if you like Corran Horn, He's the MC if you ask me. E-mail me if you want to talk about SW, My family hates talking about it.

Good Book

When I started to read this book I was pretty skeptical about whether it was going to be interesting, but as I got deeper into the plot I was amazed. Mike, another great book.

Fantastic leisure read combining sci-fi & mystery

Star Wars X-Wing: Isard's Revenge Michael A. Stackpole Review by Morgan C. EldredIsard's RevengeI thought that Aaron Allston had taken a clear lead in terms of plot, suspense, and reader-riviting action with X-Wing's 5-7 (I really liked the "Wraith Squadron" personae and their interaction with the Rougue's), but Michael Stackpole's return to the X-wing series with Isard's Revenge is a triumph of combining the best of several genre's of writing.Without revealing too much of the plot, Isard's Revenge provides the reader with a powerful combination of action and adventure, suspense, mystery and detective work, and just down-home great science fiction. Is Isard really alive, or is someone pretending to be her? What is her true goal? Could the Rouge's actually ally themselves with her?This book is simply a great, can't-put-it-down, read - if you like good sci-fi action. The greatest danger posed by this book is that it might divert your attention from other, less enjoyable, tasks.After having read Isard's Revenge, I look forward to X-Wing 9. Is it available yet?
