Not yet realising that either Isard is alive, Rogue Squadron is tasked with taking out Prince-Admiral Krennel, one of the more powerful former Imperials who set himself up as a warlord. Through arduous training and dangerous missions, he weeds out the weak from the strong, assembling a group of hard-bitten warriors to fight, ready to die.

The novel is very much about him coming to terms with a life among the former Rebels after a long stint as a Corellian Security agent. The astute ones among my readers might notice that I went to the same university as George Lucas himself.

Tycho being a war-hero, a pilot ace and an Alderaanian with Gavin being a young, inexperienced pilot from Tatooine. Total childish geekiness ensued in those days.

But how can they leave their comrades at Krennel's mercy. Seeing the dreaded Interdictor-class cruisers make an appearance is quite thrilling or the Lancer-class anti-starfighter frigates which are one of my favourite ship designs in all of SWEU.

As the first novel in the series, it introduces the primary character, Corran Horn, as well as a host of other characters, including Mirax Terrik, Erisi Dlarit, and Tycho Celchu.

I would have loved to see more of both, Salm in particular. Borleias is taken, and the Alliance takes a step toward liberating Coruscant.
