Alphabet Squadron (Star Wars)
Alphabet Squadron (Star Wars) | Alexander Freed
9 posts | 10 read | 4 to read
The first novel in a new trilogy starring veteran New Republic pilots! On the verge of victory in a brutal war, five New Republic pilots transform from hunted to hunters in this epic Star Wars adventure. Set after Return of the Jedi, Alphabet Squadron follows a unique team, each flying a different class of starfighter as they struggle to end their war once and for all. The Emperor is dead. His final weapon has been destroyed. The Imperial Army is in disarray. In the aftermath, Yrica Quell is just one of thousands of defectors from her former cause living in a deserters shantytownuntil she is selected to join Alphabet Squadron. Cobbled together from an eclectic assortment of pilots and starfighters, the five members of Alphabet are tasked by New Republic general Hera Syndulla herself. Like Yrica, each is a talented pilot struggling to find their place in a changing galaxy. Their mission: to track down and destroy the mysterious Shadow Wing, a lethal force of TIE fighters exacting bloody, reckless vengeance in the twilight of their reign. The newly formed unit embodies the heart and soul of the Rebellion: ragtag, resourceful, scrappy, and emboldened by their most audacious victory in decades. But going from underdog rebels to celebrated heroes isnt as easy as it seems, and their inner demons threaten them as much as their enemies among the stars. The wayward warriors of Alphabet Squadron will have to learn to fly together if they want to protect the new era of peace theyve fought so hard to achieve. Part of a Marvel and Del Rey crossover event, Alphabet Squadron is the counterpart to Marvels TIE Fighter miniseries, which follows the exploits of Shadow Wing as they scheme to thwart the New Republic.

It starts a bit slow, about 150 pages in until the squadron comes together, and there are quiet a few characters, both Rebels and Imperials, to keep in mind, but once the action begins it's a fun adventure. The first of a trilogy, I'm interested to see what happens next. 4 💥💥💥💥

Well, I love the cover. I usually do Star Wars by audio where possible, but they‘ve not released this in NZ yet in that format. I did like the story but I found it a bit confusing in places. I‘m still questioning some of the characters motivations and loyalty even when the story is over. I do think I‘ll come back, perhaps reread this one before the next ones come out, (this is a trilogy) as Yrica Quell is engaging enough to want more of. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

This is now one of my favorite Star Wars books! The plot follows a special intelligence squadron after the battle of Endor. I loved how each chapter is divided into perspectives from the different pilots, and you little glimpses of the larger puzzle as you get to know each character. Also, pilot angst! I highly recommend this one. You don't need to have read any other Star Wars books to jump into this. I laughed, cried, and just really loved this!
