The Alliance Fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord. Tyrant Ysanne Isard has taken control of Thyferra, intending to use its supply of medicinal bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. Undermanned and deprived of Alliance support, Rogue Squadron must oppose Isard's plans, defeat her Star Destroyer fleet, and free Thyferra from her rule in a winner-take-all battle against a seemingly superior force.

I have owned a hard copy of this set of books for a number of years and have read each one numerous times. I always enjoy reading them. That being said, I do enjoy listening to these audiobook versions.
The story is adapted from the original but it does not particularly detract from the over all story. The performance is do everything very well as are the sound effects.
I would recommend this audiobook
"First by Anthony heald"
The first X-Wing novel and possibly first star wars Novel read by Anthony heald an the first with high quality sound effects and score. Great starting point.. Hope someday to have Unabridged X-Wing stories
These are fantastic books and the abridged versions do not do them justice. I figured this out from some of the other reviews and actually read the books which are worlds better. I hope that these will be redone without abridgement.
"The Squadron saves the day again"
The X-wing squadron comes to the rescue of the Galaxy as the Remanence of the Empire try to control the Baca trade
"Why does this series need abridgment?"
This series needs to be unabridged. Too much detail is missing from these storylines. These audio versions do not do the actual stories justice, sure I like the effects and background that was added, but the lack of story depth counteracts that production. What a shame.
"Abridgment and narrator leave a little to be desired"
The narrators accents are muddled at best, perhaps on purpose, perhaps by accident, but it can make him difficult to follow at times. That being said it won't prevent me from getting other books in the series. I only wish they had produced an unabridged collection.
This is such an amazing book run even better as an audio book. Really loving it.
"Hard listen for a 'core' Star Wars fan"
Everybody is an old man with this readers voice.
I have read all the books and looked forward to listening at work. The first three were rough with Henry Thomas; barley into book 4 and wishing they were done by Mr Thomas. Seems these books were read by whom ever would do the work. Fictional stories need to be done by those who can perform a miriad of voices. Christian Rummel, who narrated The Lost Fleet series, would be a great improvement. His ability made listening to a story I had never read/heard before, an amzing jorney.
The recording sounded dated in quality, however the story it self was excellent and the performance was very well done.
