A must read for any star wars fan!

This is a great book for any star wars fan.Even if you havent read the first 3 books of the series(which you should aslo read)this is still an understandable and surprising book.This book takes place a few years after star wars Return of the Jedi.The newly formed republic is in control of Coruscant and is after a Warlord.Rogue Squadron has quit the new Republic and is after Yssane Issard.Although the odds are against them,Rogue Squadron with the help of a few friends, wages a war against a powerful enemy.If you like Star wars novels,or like action filled,surprising stories,this is the book for you!

Go Rouges!

This was a phonomenal book. It was a real attention graber. It's more than slightly worth reading. If you don't like it, that is your own opinion , but your opinion belongs somewhere besides the realm of the Star Wars fans. Any fan will love this story of just how sweet revenge gets. Very sweet. So sweet it belongs in a sugar bowl. Any Corran Horn fan will feel goood for him and the rest of the Rouges.Besides Corran needed a social life and a wife anyway.It's about time he got one. In the event you should not borrow or by this book I have 1 word for you. Shame.


Well that's not sayin' a lot-- I love 'em all!!! I rank it inthe top 5 books I've read. (Among them: Vision of the Future, t. Zahn,and I, Jedi, m. Stackpole-- by the way I know they brainstormed ideas on that together!!) I laughed so hard when I read this my parents honestly thought I was going insane. Who knows? maybe I was!

Great ending to the 4 part srory

The Bacta War, along with the three prequals was really, really good. If followed up on the stories behind it and carried on exelently. It was in good length, and I can't really say anything bad about it. Michael A. Stackpole is really good.I have read all the books except the last three and I think it is sad that all the oringinal Rougue Squadron pilots except Wedge get the boot.Worth your Money!!!!

One of the best Star Wars books by far

(And that goes for ALL of the X-wing books) I'm ashamed to say that when I first heard about the X-wing books, I decided not to read them because I figured there would be too many battles, and I hate reading battles, so I assumed the novels would be boring to me. But during a severe case of Star Wars withdrawal when I was ready to kill for something new, I figured, what the heck?Boy was I wrong! The whole series (and especially this book specifically) was so incredible. The best thing about it was that it took us far away from the typical cut-and-dry Star Wars book formula. Wedge Antilles is the unsung hero who clearly proves something I've always thought important: you do not need the force to be heroic (I realize that Han already proved this, but he's in Luke's shadow all the time.)The battles were honestly not that bad! I didn't understand the technical X-wing terms, but I like how all the characters worked together, and after a while I did get pretty knowledgeable about some things (like the difference between a squint and an eyeball).Also the romance. I've always thought that Star Wars could use a little more romance, and not just Luke gets dumped by another girl because they just can't live with him. Stackpole not only put romance in the books, but he wrote it very well. Not mushy gushy, but real, open and honest, with realistic obstacles. For instance, Corran and Mirax learning to admit they were wrong in their prejudice about each other and learn to become friends.My favorite is Pash Cracken. I don't know why, I just like hime a lot. I've also always liked A-wings.The Bacta War was my favorite mostly because I have a tendency to like the last book in a set of books the best. Honestly I tend to think of trilogies and the like more as one great big book in volumes.Read this book. Read the whole series!
