Book Review of Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squardron

Dan Boughen 9A

The title of the novel is Star Wars : X-Wing Rogue Squadron.
The author's name is Michael A. Stackpole.
The type of book is fantasy / adventure.

Main Characters

A) Corran Horn : Corran is a pilot in training for the Alliance or the Rebellion.
He is the best rookie pilot on the Rogue Squadron. He is a silent person who
does not like the social life but does like the spotlight once in a while. He
was a CorSec security officer on the planet Correlia in his late teens'.

B) Kirtan Loor : Kirtan is a cold, isolated man that lives on the planet of
Churba. He is a high ranked officer for the Imperial Army. He later gets
promoted to a commanding officer and sits on the right side of the head leader
of intelligence for the Emperor.

Setting : The setting first takes place in the Rebel's secret base. The setting
then moves to a swamp planet by the name of Imdaar. The setting then moves to
Imperial headquarters on the planet of Coruscant.

Plot Summary : Corran and his new partners are given a limited amount of
training time and are sent out on a mission in just weeks of forming the new
Rogue Squadron X-wing fighter group. This book switches the first-person
perspective between Corran and Kirtan Loor. While Corran and the Rogue Squadron
are off fighting TIE fighters and Star Destroyers, Kirtan is hunting down
information on the squadron and it's pilots.

Personal Reaction : I found this book a little hard to read because of the long
complicated sentences and the complex words Michael Stackpole chose for his book.
I would say the reading level would probably be around grade 11 or 12 because
of the intricate words and long sentences. I liked this book because it not
only was exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat, but because of the easy to
read dialogue that was in the book. I would recommend this to anyone who likes
Star Wars books or even the movies, or anyone who likes action / adventure type
books. This book is only the first in the X-WING trilogy. If you like this
book by Michael A Stackpole, then I would recommend reading the next two in the
trilogy.
