I've been a fan of Christie Golden for years, and it's interesting seeing her write about a sizable female cast. This book is about the Imperial agents of Inferno Squad, featured in the new Battlefront 2, about their defining mission. Golden references the prequel book to Rogue One, but it is not required to read that in order to read this. I do recommend you watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rogue One before reading this, though, otherwise a lot of information will go right over your head. This is an excellent introduction to characters we'll likely see plenty of in Battlefront 2, and is read by Iden Versio's face-model and voice actress. Janina Gavankar does certain parts very well but others feel a little weak. Ironically, I don't think she does Iden very well. It's clear Golden was working with some constraints for this book. A certain end-game is required by the end in order to set it up for Battlefront 2, so she crafted a story to meet it and I think the book slightly suffers for it, particularly in its handling of female characters. Overall, I liked the book, but I don't think it's Christie Golden's best work and I hope the game makes it all worth it.
Great story, The first Battlefront book took half of the book to get into it. This one I was hooked right from the start. Good addition to the Star Wars Canon.
Excellent story, told from a great point of view. If you enjoyed the first one then get ready for another exciting installment.
Great story. Nice depth to the human fates in the story. Gives excellent insight into fluff behind the creation of inferno squad.
very good book.
Great book that really felt at home in the Star Wars universe!
This book is absolutely amazing! It takes place after the destruction of the first Death Star and then leads up to the Battle of Endor. It's leading you directly into Battlefront II the game which comes out this November so I give this book a 10/10. It's an amazing prequel to the game!
