The intrepid spies, pilots, and sharpshooters of Wraith Squadron are back in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which transpires just after the events of the Fate of the Jedi series!
Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand - for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission.
A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire. With orders to expose and apprehend the traitor - and license to do so by any and all means - the Wraiths will become thieves, pirates, impostors, forgers...and targets, as they put their guts, their guns, and their riskiest game plan to the test against the most lethal of adversaries.

The Wraiths Are Back
Ended up being better than reading it.
Face - because he sounded like Captain Kirk
Marc's vocal inflections really sold the levity in the book. I started reading it an then listened a little and it was a totally different feel. So much of Star Wars is so serious and emotional, that I started the reading with the same approach. It's a good thing that I tried the Whispersync thing for audio! I've never been interested in anything rogue Squadron but I really like Marc Thompson, so I tried it. I glad because I was laughing out loud a lot. Now when I go back someday and read it, I'll know what the mood of the book is lighter.
This book is like reading/listening to NCIS LA, The A Team, Sneakers (the movie), Mission impossible and GI Joe. It's very entertaining and of course doesn't take itself too seriously. Let me tell yo just this, the main character is a Gamorrean who speaks English and has been modified by experiments so he has a genius intellect and also can dance like a Chippendale. There, nuff said? I don't think there is a real lightsaber in the whole book. You'd have to know some things about the FOTJ series to totally get the plot though, the Lecersen conspiracy for instance, and the overall EU historical context.
