Book Review

Dan Boughen 9A

January 1997

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.
