5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent beginning!!!
This book starts of with Wedge Antillies rebuilding Rouge Squadron into the killing machine it used to be. The book revolves around Wedge and one of his best/cockiest pilots Corran Horn a fugitve on the run from the imps. He is loath to make friends, but in the end he does and this basically saves his life.
This story revolves around Rouge squadron as they are the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but...
Not bad. I'm glad I finally found out how Wedge's parents got killed on their station and good to she the person responsible show his face. Apart from that though I found the storyline quite disappointing. It lacked the usual action I enjoy from Rogue Squadron and seemed a bit empty. The only other thing I liked was to finally see what Mirax Terrik and Booster Terrik...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a brilliant series, 28 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Very well-written and exciting, with plenty of action and suspense. The author handles a large cast of characters well, making them all distinct individuals. Only problem is the scenes where Isard and Loor go on for ages making wild claims about how to destroy Rogue Squadron, but there is less of this in later books.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is excellent, without a doubt, 4 Aug 2000
By A Customer
For once, we have a book that doesn't focus of Luke, Leia, Hand or Chewbacca. Michael Stackpole has created a brilliant new cast for a new series, and he could not have done a better job. He brings life to a minor character in the films, Wedge Antilles, and Corran Horn is both funny and serious. Buy this book, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars mmm, Flyboys, 19 July 2000
By A Customer
As an experianced star wars novel reader i hadn't bothered with the series that were/was important with the whole st storyline but then i read the absolutely AMAZING I,Jedi and some of Stackpole's short stories with Corran Horn in. So i decided to read the x-wing/rouge squadron series and the first one is one of the best st books i've read (excluding Kev J Anderson's and T Zahn's) Click Add To Shopping Basket NOW!

4.0 out of 5 stars The legend continues..., 23 Feb 2000
After reading I Jedi and becoming engrossed in Corran Horns world i desided to check out some of Horns/Stackpoles earlier work and needless to say i am discovering new avenues to the Star Wars universe. In short a must have collection to any Star Wars fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Rogues need is a ship, and a rock to land it on!, 26 Jan 2000
By A Customer
An excellant start to the series if I may say so myself, and it is such a relief to get away from the usual Han, Luke and Leia story lines. This book, and the ones after it, provide an excellant look into the ranks of the fabulous Rogue Squadron. Especially thier Commander, who is hardly featured in any other books. (what a shame!) Its only draw back from my point of view is Corran Horn's awfully paranoid and analytical nature, (sorry you Horn fans out there but it has to be said!) Over all a fantstic book! Go out and buy it now if you havn't already got it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutelt stunning start to the series, 28 Mar 1999
By A Customer
The X-Wing books provide a stunning series of Star Wars books. It is nice to have a different aspect to the Star Wars universe, not just that of Leia, Luke and co.
The books were easy to get into and are ones that you just can't put down. I now have nearly every Star Wars book, and I think these are probably the best available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red 2 Standing By, 29 July 2001
Sheer brilliance is the only way to describe the 9 part X-Wing series by Michael Stackpole and Aaron Allston. In book one we read about the trials and tribulations faced by Wedge Antilles (ace starfighter pilot of the Rebel Alliance) as he forms, trains and fights alongside the legendary Rogue Squadron. A must for experienced Jedi and Newbies alike.
