Description

They are the Rebel Alliance's ultimate strike force--sleek, swift, and deadly. For these X-wing fighters, no job is too dirty or too dangerous. Now they must rise to meet an impossible challenge: stop a powerful warlord by pretending to be his ally.

Against all odds, the controversial Wraith Squadron has survived its first covert mission. But now they are called upon to cheat death twice. This time Wedge Antilles sends them in to stop the warlord Zsinj and his Super Star Destroyer, Iron Fist. If Zsinj joins the Empire, it could turn the tide of war against the Rebels. The Wraith Squadron's mission: infiltrate the warlord's fleet and uncover his carefully guarded plans. To do so, they must pose as ruthless pirates seeking to join Zsinj's forces. And that means first becoming pirates in space lanes teeming with Imperial Navy patrols. If that isn't enough to get them killed, they'll have to pass one last test--a suicide mission for Zsinj.

Can they survive the test and turn the tables on Zsinj?

Or is this the end for Wraith Squadron?

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

More Tie Action than X-Wing, But a Wild Ride

Iron Fist is the next book in the X-Wing series to follow the exploits of the newly-minted Wraith Squadron - a team of misfit pilots who relish the opportunity to take on any assignment; the crazier the better. Having defeated rogue Imperial Admiral Trigit in the previous novel, they now turn their sights completely on hunting Warlord Zsinj and his flagship, the Super Star Destroyer "Iron Fist." Like its predecessor, this is a book that combines cockpit action with ground-pounding commando missions. Add to that a fair dose of intrigue and humor, and Aaron Allston has once again delieved a winning combination to the Star Wars fan.
I had gotten quite used to the previous novel focusing on the point of view of Kell Tainer that I was taken aback at first by the backseat that Kell takes in this novel. This novel, instead, focuses on Face Loran as he grows from just another squadron member to a leader among the Wraiths. His journey is poignantly told with the requisite amount of humor to do Face justice. And, of course, another cameo appearance by one General Han Solo will please any avid fan. Very few novels attempt to depict Solo's exploits as a New Republic general - most leap ahead to his post-military career where he often decries his time in uniform. It is an interesting take to see what General Solo was capable of when leading a naval taskforce - not just infiltrating a forest moon's shield generator.
If you enjoyed X-Wing: Wraith Squadron, you will certainly appreciate Iron Fist. It is a worthy sucessor and will leave you wanting more. Knowing that the next book was Solo Command, I couldn't wait to get through this and hear that tale. But give this one the time it deserves. You'll be glad you did.
