“The good military SF continues in Stackpole's third X-Wing novel. Every bit as good as the first two.”Daniel G. wrote this review Monday, October 1, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This book connects with me in many ways. First, I feel it connects to the other books in the "X-Wing" series because it involves the same characters and similar themes. It also connects to my life because Corran Horn is somewhat similar to me; we are both very stubborn, loyal, and determined. Another reason it connects to my life is Wedge Antilles reminds me of my mother. Both are proud, smart, determined, and protective. I was able to make many connections to this book.”Ally D wrote this review Tuesday, August 31, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This one has a lot of what I remember as the classic "Rogue Squadron" bits in it, with Corran's heritage finally being revealed, the traitor in the Squadron being outed, and Gavin's character being fleshed out even more. There are even a few bits of humor, but Stackpole isn't as good at it as Allston.
It was a bit annoying that Corran was revealed to have Jedi heritage -- ANOTHER fighter jock with the Force on his side? -- but it was also refreshing to see him turn down Luke's offer to become a Jedi.
Another interesting thing is the way these pre-prequel books talk about the Clone Wars; nobody really had any idea what they were, but there are references to them. George Lucas really took them in an odd direction, though.”

“Book three was a little more exciting than the first two. It was nice to finally see these characters doing something other than just sitting around and occasionally flying a mission.
As far as action goes, there's a lot more in this book than the prior X-Wing novels, and I'm glad that some of the lose ends from prior books are finally wrapped up.
I'm a little more hopeful about the series now.”
“I enjoyed this book just like I did the 2nd book in this series. Now that Mr. Stackpole has given us the background of the new main characters, I enjoy reading about their exploits and I really like Wedge Antilles.”Justin M wrote this review Monday, April 28, 2008.
