Publisher's Summary

The Rebels have taken the Imperial headquarters world of Coruscant, but their problems are far from over. A killer virus called Krytos is spreading among the population and fomenting a counter-revolution at the same time as the treason trial of Rebel hero Tycho Celchu. As the X-wing fighters scramble to save the rebellion, pilot Corran Horn, given up for dead in an "inescapable" prison, discovers an extraordinary power in himself, the power of the Force!

More irritating mispronunciations!

It can't be that hard to get things right! A high quality story undermined by poor pronunciation and inflection. The novel was great, but this performance does it a disservice. I can only hope there's an unabridged version at some point in the future.

Wrong narrator listed!!!!!!

This is not narrated by Anthony Heald, rather it is Henry Thomas. disappointed with the false listing. Henrys narration leaves a lot to be desired.

too abridged

not a fan of the abridged version of these already fairly short books. performance was mixed, I enjoy the sound effects and music, and the reader was doing his best, but it just didn't land as well as I think they would have liked.

Love these books

These are a really fun read about the aftermath and growth of the New Republic after the fall of the Empire, even though these stories are now "legend" stories with the new cannon being developed. The stories really hold up.

Good Listen.

While the story is good and the narration satisfactory the breaks between scenes are not pronounced causing a bit of confusion.

too abridged

I would like to have heard more of the story . There were some parts that I would've liked to have heard the story as opposed to a summary.

Almost hard to listen too.

While I enjoy Anthony Heald in his movies... whoever directed him to read the majority of the voices in this book with a British / Scottish accent needs to have his head examined... Not only was this a bad choice (a couple would be fine - but damn near everyone is way overkill), but the accent itself - wow, just bad. All this coming from a NY born actor - if you want a EU accent - get someone from the EU to read it!

And then the abridging - again - Missing some major details from the book, almost to the point of a incomplete story. It just went way too far on this one.

Excellent addition to the story of Rogue Squadron

Now that the New Republic have taken the diseased planet Coroscant they must deal with the fact that Tycho Celchu has been arrested for the murder of Corran Horn and is on trial defended by Nawara Ven.

Meanwhile we discover that Corran Horn is actually alive and being held prisoner by the head of Imperial intelligence Ysanne Issard in Lusankya. He is determined to escape and with the help of other Rebel prisoners he eventually manages to do so. Whilst also discovering that Tycho was never an Imperial agent. And in fact has the same resistance grade as he himself was given 'resistance on primary phase.'

On his escape he discovers that Lusankya is actually an Imperial SSD hidden on Coroscant. He finds himself in a hidden part of a museum that contains a hoard of Jedi belongings. He takes a lightsaber to help in his escape. He then battles a few guards who have been sent to kill the escapee. Using a communication device he contacts his robot to ask for assistance.

Meanwhile, Issard orders the Lusankya to leave the planet, this is where all the parts of the story come together. Corran appears in the court as a witness for Tycho in the murder case, The rest of Rogue Squadron are battling the Lusankya which is firing at the planet's shields in an attempt to leave. And Wedge discovers that the true traitor in Rogue Squadron is Erisi Dlarit. Who joins the Lusankya on its escape from Coroscant.

At the end of this book there is a public announcement that Tycho's loyalty is beyond question as is his innocence. And it is revealed to all that part of the reason that this is known is the fact that Corran Horn is alive after all etc etc.
