Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Set in the aftermath of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, this action-packed prequel to the hotly anticipated videogame Battlefront II introduces the Empire’s elite force: Inferno Squad.

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. But not for long. In retaliation, the elite Imperial soldiers of Inferno Squad have been called in for the crucial mission of infiltrating and eliminating the Partisans—the rebel faction once led by notorious Republic freedom fighter Saw Gerrera.

Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire—no matter the cost. Now Inferno Squad must prove its status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But the growing threat of being discovered in their enemy’s midst turns an already dangerous operation into a do-or-die acid test they dare not fail. To protect and preserve the Empire, to what lengths will Inferno Squad go . . . and how far beyond them?

The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.

    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.

    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!
