Product Description

From the Back Cover

Facing impossible odds, is this the end for Rogue Squadron?

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 do the impossible: capture a hostile, fortified world - on their own.

X-WING THE BACTA WAR

While the Alliance Fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord, Ysanne Isard has seized control of Thyferra, intending to use its precious supply of bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. It falls to Rogue Squadron - undermanned, deprived of Alliance support and even of weapons - to oppose Isard's dangerous designs, defeat her powerful complement of Star Destroyers, and free Thyferra from her iron rule. But when Isard discovers the Squadron's secret base, its ragtag group of pilots must scramble for survival in a winner-take-all battle against Isard's overwhelming and seemingly superior force. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

THE STORY:
Three years after 'Return of the Jedi', Ysanne Isard has taken control of the world of Thyferra, but the fledgling New Republic cannot interfere with a sovereign government. Rogue Squadron resigns their positions and begins a hopeless campaign to bring Isard to justice, throwing their twelve pilots against, amongst other things, the Super Star Destroyer Lusankya.
WHAT'S GOOD:
I loved the idea of this book, with the Rogue slowing building their forces and gathering small victories in an attempt to bring down a far more powerful foe. I could go on for a long time, listing all the good things, but instead I'll just tell you that if you read none of the others, then read this X-Wing book. Look out for cameos by Huff Darklighter (Biggs' dad), Poe, Elscol Loro and Sixtus Quin (all from the X-Wing comics) and Wuher (the bartender in the Mos Eisley cantina).
WHAT'S BAD:
I didn't like the amiguity of Isard's end at all, way too 'The End?'-cliche style (and of course, since the publication of 'Isard's Revenge', we know that our fears of an implausible villain come-back have been realised).

this book covers the bacta war (surpised) it also covers the strange predicament of corran and mirax's relation ship with the newly introduced Booster terrik (mirax's dad) along with how the errant venture comes into the star wars universe as well as the fact that written by michael a. stackpole the best action star wars author. not to mention the antics of wedge antillies, tycho celchu, nawara ven, shiel, gavin darklighter and the rest of rouge squadron as well as the return of the ace pilot bror jace as they fight Ysanne Isard on her new capital world of thyferra, the only place in the galaxy where bacta is created, this is undoutably one of the best starwars books there is, they may be classed as off-mainstream but there is no doubt that it's good

If you've been reading the X-Wing series up to now, and are wondering where the plot goes after the obviously cliff-hanging previous book, this is most definitely the book for you. It takes the story sewn in the previous books and runs with it like Ben Johnson with a firework down his socks.
Full of amazing imagery, and the now-standard Stackpole spacefighting scenes, the book is a brilliant continuation to the X-wing series. Luckily, however, there is a nice explanatory bit at the beginning, for those who stepped out for the first part :)
I'd recommend the whole x-wing series to anyone who likes fast-paced, heart-pumping reading.
