Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. But not for long. In retaliation, the elite Imperial soldiers of Inferno Squad have been called in for the crucial mission of infiltrating and eliminating the Partisans—the rebel faction once led by notorious Republic freedom fighter Saw Gerrera.


Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire—no matter the cost. Now Inferno Squad must prove its status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But the growing threat of being discovered in their enemy’s midst turns an already dangerous operation into a do-or-die acid test they dare not fail. To protect and preserve the Empire, to what lengths will Inferno Squad go . . . and how far beyond them?


The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.

Inferno Squad is a fun read that helps you understand what undercover Imperial special forces units are like. This books mainly panders to those who played the campaign mode in the accompanying video game, Star Wars: Battlefront II, and enjoyed the characters. What makes the audiobook especially engrossing is that the voice actor who played Iden Versio in the game is who narrates this book. If you love Iden, Imperials, or just general Star Wars military books, this is a great choice for you.

- Charles Hankel

For fans of the Battlefront II video game and the inner workings of the Galactic Empire, Inferno Squad simply can't be put down. Christie Golden writes an interesting tale of espionage, morality, and badassery that fleshes out the game's protagonist while also shining a light on secrets that the Rebels and Empire, alike, would much prefer stay in the shadows.

- Eric Eilersen

The story of Iden Versio is rather unique. She is a skilled spec ops solider for the Empire with her father holding a high rank in the military. While Iden’s father is a strict, to-the-book military official, her mother is a carefree artist. Those opposing personalities in her parents shape Iden into a fierce soldier who also stops to question the morality of her actions. If you are planning to play the single-player campaign for the Battlefront II video game, then this novel is a must-read.
