30 posts | 17 read | 5 to read
Set in the aftermath of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, this action-packed prequel to the hotly anticipated videogame Battlefront II introduces the Empires 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 Partisansthe 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 Empireno 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 enemys 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.

Not book related, but my new kitty finally came out of hiding after a week. Her name is Iden after Iden Versio in the tagged book.

I enjoy occasionally hearing how the other (dark) side lives. And I particularly enjoy Star Wars books in audio form.

Hi Litsy fam- thank you all for all of your support over these past few days. I am awake this morning, before the rest of the house, enjoying some reading time in the still quietness. It has been a long few days, and we‘re looking at a long couple of more. The visitation for my step-dad is this evening & services are tomorrow. Just know your support had meant the world to me.

LauraBeth So sorry to hear that about your step-dad. You‘re in my thoughts today 💕💕 2y

Omg. I cannot recommend the game Battlefield II enough if you have read Battlefield II Inferno Squad. I feel like I‘m tied to the characters and I‘m so satisfied with the story 😍

new2kindle Read the book before getting the game (which I'm loving) ☺ & it definitely adds to the experience 2y

This book was awesome. Some complained it wasn‘t “action packed” enough but I thought it did a good job. And the characters were very compelling. Worth the 6 month library wait

Quite good, though on the short side. I really appreciate getting the POVs of those on the Empire's side. We also see a side of the rebellion that doesn't play by rules or morals. It may not be a favorite of mine but its definitely one I'll remember.

I'm enjoying this but at the same time I'm kind of over listening to it. I have no issues with her female voices but as soon as it gets to the male voices I want to speed up the audio.

Finally listening to this again. I haven't been in a mood for SW but the new game (by the same name) and the trailer has me ready to dive in again.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I know! I‘m so far behind on my Star Wars books, but I still bought the new one last week... 2y
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I need to buy that one! It has some awesome authors in it, and I'm curious to see what kind of stories they have included. 2y

All my hold requests came in at the library at the same time 😆 so I've been trying to speed read! I enjoyed this; was interesting to read about Star Wars events from the perspectives of Imperials. I do wish the characters had questioned Imperial ethics/tactics more (how can you justify the Death Star?!?) But it was thought provoking to read how the other side views the events of A New Hope. Would recommend for Star Wars fans!

It's hard to make people like characters they're predisposed to hate, but this does a pretty good job of introducing moral ambiguity by pitting Imperials who truly believe the Empire will bring peace against the remnants of Saw Gerrera's partisan extremists, who are too violent for the main Rebellion. Opens w/destruction of 1st Death Star but is more closely tied to Rogue One. Makes me want to play the upcoming game, which follows the same squad.

Jediash1 I put in a request for this at the library and it just came in! :D 2y
BookFreakOut @Jediash1 That's because I took it back last night, a few days overdue because I COULDN'T RENEW IT I WONDER WHY. 😆 2y
Jediash1 @BookFreakOut Oops...well, uh, that's probably my fault. ;) ha ha 2y

Mehso-so

I adore Star Wars, and I like video games, so when I heard the new Battlefront II game is going to follow a female Stormtrooper (post Death Star explosion) I was excited and had to pick up this story about her and her squad. It was enjoyable and moved along, but wasn't the most enthralling Star Wars read I've seen. I would read more by this author, though - much better writing than some of the other new canon books. #maytheforcebewithyou #starwars

Doing a little reading by iPhone flashlight since the hubby went to sleep really early, although he's currently attacking my light-blocking pillow wall with drowsy, futile flails so it might be time to give up and turn in.

Started this one yesterday with the boyfriend! We buddy read most of the Star Wars books (I say most because he decided to breeze through Ahsoka w/o me 😒). We're hoping this one is more interesting than the the Battlefront book which we didn't get past chapter one of.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I have Ahoska sitting on my shelf to read, so when you are ready, maybe we can read it together. And I agree, some of the Star Wars books are great and some just ok. I hope Ahsoka is a good one. 🤞 2y
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa That would be great! And yeah, some of them have been a bit slow but haven't dislike any of them. He wasn't blown away by Ahsoka, but he's really hard to impress. I've enjoyed some a lot more than he has, so we shall see 🤞🏻 2y
annkuch13 This one is really good. I liked it better than the first Battlefront book. 2y

InLibrisVeritas @annkuch13 I'm glad to hear that! I liked her other book Dark Disciple, so I was hoping it would be good overall. 2y
annkuch13 @InLibrisVeritas yeah her characterization is so great! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas I agree, I wouldn't call any bad either....just some were great and so ok. I really liked Bloodline for instance, where as I thought Heir to the Jedi was just ok (which was a shame because I really enjoy Kevin Hearne's writing as a whole). Something I think it has more to do with how much leeway the author has with the story versus filling a very small potion of a backstory that is already set. 2y
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Totally agree! I haven't read Bloodline yet, but I agree about Heir. It was okay, but it has some moments I still love to reference (noodle scooter 😂). I loved Lords of the Sith and A New Dawn, they just seemed less restricted. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas I haven't read Lords of the Sith or A New Dawn, I'm way behind! 2y

I really enjoyed this one. Golden did an amazing job of making you care about the characters and played around in the gray moral areas of Star Wars. I recommend this one for people hesitant to read about Imperials.

I'm not an Imperial. I'm not a gamer. But this book really makes you care about the characters. Plus a reveal that had me 😱! The audio is narrated by Janina Gavankar, who plays Iden Versio in the game. She did a great job.

annkuch13 Yes! I was not expecting to like these characters this much! 2y
