Publisher's Summary

They are the galaxy's most elite fighting force. And as the battle against the Empire rages, the X-wing fighters risk life and machine to protect the Rebel Alliance. Now they must go on a daring undercover mission as the crew of an Imperial warship.
It is Wedge Antilles' boldest creation: a covert-action unit of X-wing fighters, its pilots drawn from the dregs of other units, castoffs and rejects given one last chance. But before the new pilots can complete their training, the squadron's base is attacked by former Imperial admiral Trigit, and Wraith Squadron is forced to swing into action, taking over an Imperial warship and impersonating its crew. The mission: to gain vital intelligence about Trigit's secret weapons, to sabotage the admiral's plans, and to lure him into an Alliance trap. But the high-stakes gamble pits Wraith Squadron's ragtag renegades against the Empire's most brilliant master of guile and deception.
Are they up to the challenge?
If not, the penalty is instant death.

Abridgement not successful

I really enjoy this book and was looking forward to listening to it. One of the best things about Aaron Allston is the sly humor that he sneaks into his stories, as well as the round characters he creates. Both were left out of the abridged version in order to ensure that the story remained coherent given the time limitation. It was like eating food without salt or spices. I was really disappointed. I'm giving it three stars, because it's a great book and story, but I felt like the abridged audio version was a let-down.

Why abridged?

This should not have been abridged. To much left out. Terrible book. No recommendation

great way to pass a few hours

the narrator was able to convey the adapted story in a way that does not diminish from the full story of the beginnings of Wraith Squadron.

there are a number of obvious differences between the original book and this adapted version but if I hadn't read the real books numerous times I would accept this version as a good story in its own right.

the omitted sections do not detract in any way from future aspects of this storyline or indeed from the set of x-wing books.

I am happy to recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn what the real star wars time line was supposed to be like before Disney messed with things
