    Not sure on the first one, unless you mean the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances (mostly shortened to Galactic Alliance) which is the government that replaced the New Republic.

    As for the second GCW, that was from the Legacy of the Force series.

    Ouch, I didn't see Runt's death coming. Bad, bad Allston. No fair toying with us like that.

    With the way you guys keep talking about MK I can't wait for it to come out in PB so I can enjoy it as well.

    Thanks runjedirun. :)

    What is PB?

    I've finished up to Chapter 26. Bhindi dies very suddenly, Voort has just taken command of the squad, and there exists a second unit of Wraiths.

    Wedge showed up and does exactly what I've been expecting him to do in this book, but it's a big let down. I don't think it was very honest to stick him in the DP if he doesn't show up until after 2/3rd of the book (pg 252). At the same time, I didn't think he would have a huge role in this so maybe I've just been deluding myself the entire time. *shrug*

    I really enjoyed the interaction between Voort and Kirney. It reminds me a lot of a line about the consequences of letting Wes babysit your kids.

    I've gone back to the beginning and am now reading everything over. I think I was having trouble following so many different storylines and new characters that I glossed over a bunch of parts that make a lot more sense now. Still confused about the role of the blonde pilot that planted the bomb in Face's landspeeder. Also, I giggled once I realized that Face's car is basically Kitt.

    I am probably completely off base, but I think there is an Imperial spy within the squad, and my current suspects are Turman, Sharr, and Thaymes. Sharr would be too obvious a choice, but I don't know about the others. I think there's a spy because I think pretty much all of the X-wing books had a spy from one side or another causing problems. So again, probably way off base but it's the only way I can think of introducing conflict towards the end of the book. Then again, there are enough things to wrap up that that is probably unnecessary.

    Almost everyone does it, CPL - timesaver, but I have to refer to the title lists myself sometimes!

    Mirax the first time I got to chapter 21 and the cast doubled on me I thought about going back and starting over again as well. But I just had to know the ending so I kept reading. The 2nd time I read it I got a lot more out of it. Surely I'll get even more the 3rd time and 4th and there will be a 3rd and 4th, because it's an awesome book!

    runjedirun, I'm glad I'm reading it again, because there is a lot of stuff I missed the first time around. I'm really curious how Allston's going to wrap everything up within the two hundred pages or so that I have left. You telling me to strap in for a wild ride?

    I loved it with all the extras, and the confusion and the numbers and everything. And I thought Wedge's appearance was perfect. Not so much as to take away from the newbies, but still so much of the Wedgely Awesomeness.

    I don't know, I think Allston could have squeezed in a little more Wedge. As much as I love the new generation it's hard to see the old guys get "old".

    They're still hot hands in an X-Wing, though - and a very special type of X-Wing at that! Really wonder what the bad-guys started thinking when those two turned up!

    Oh, it's not like SW heroes age or lose their skills, but to see Wedge take a back seat to anyone, even his own Daughter can be a little hard to swallow. Besides who in their right mind would want less Wedge?

    I always love me some Wedge. Maybe people are tired of him, but I don't think you can have a proper X-wing novel without him.

    Tim, probably "Sithsp-" *bzzt!*

    I'm back at Chapter 27. A few things that popped out at me this time around.

    Show Spoiler
    I'm adding Trey to my list of suspicious people. I initially had cleared him because of Jesmin's cavalier attitude about him, but he seems to be around when everything goes to hell. He also had that weird exchange with Myri about her father. Also, how Myri points out that he never on intrusions with the same member of Wraith squadron twice. If Allston hadn't have distracted me with the identity of the Duros the first time around, I might have picked that piece up. Actually, the more I think about this, the more I'm convinced that Trey is a mole. Argh, or a red herring, but probably not. Okay, I really need to finish the book now.

    One thing I'm not clear on. Why is Bhindi shrieking in the middle of enemy territory (pg 201)? Also, rereading has me considering that one of the injections she received was a poison.

    It also occurs to me that General Thaal's appearance in the novel is very, very late, considering he's the main baddy. Part of the fun of previous Allston novels was the interactions between Zsing and Melvar. I'm assuming Allston has a good reason for this.


    Okay, strapping into safety netting now. Charging shields to full.

    MK update: !!!! pg 326 (before Ch. 34)

    Edited for inclusion to page 335.

    Show Spoiler

    No way! There is no way! You cannot be possibly serious! I didn't see this coming.

    to pg 335
    Okay, I think I freaked out a little early. I thought for some reason that Trey was General Thaal, but a little thinking made me realize how silly that thought was.

    Even money odds that "Ton Phanan" is Face?


    Edited to add spoiler tags.

    The end of the book is chaotic (and you are at that part). So many characters, most of them still new and they are all split up doing different tasks. Trying to keep it all strait is half the fun.
