Our Synopsis

No Spoilers

Deep in the trenches of the Galactic Civil War, there is no more time for games. Rebel Alliance troops must run headfirst into Imperial territory in order to gain ground, risking everything for even the smallest chance of victory.

The fiercest of them all, a group of soldiers bound by loyalty and their collective hatred of the Empire, is known as Twilight Company. Always eager for a fight, they embark on a mission that could jeopardize everything the Alliance has worked for. But if Twilight Company emerges victorious, their efforts could bring new recruits to the cause and increase the Rebellion’s chances of winning the war.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

The bravest soldiers. The toughest warriors. The ultimate survivors.

Among the stars and across the vast expanses of space, the Galactic Civil War rages. On the battlefields of multiple worlds in the Mid Rim, legions of ruthless stormtroopers—bent on crushing resistance to the Empire wherever it arises—are waging close and brutal combat against an armada of freedom fighters. In the streets and alleys of ravaged cities, the front-line forces of the Rebel Alliance are taking the fight to the enemy, pushing deeper into Imperial territory and grappling with the savage flesh-and-blood realities of war on the ground.

Leading the charge are the soldiers—men and women, human and nonhuman—of the Sixty-First Mobile Infantry, better known as Twilight Company. Hard-bitten, war-weary, and ferociously loyal to one another, the members of this renegade outfit doggedly survive where others perish, and defiance is their most powerful weapon against the deadliest odds. When orders come down for the rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation—and gives the Alliance’s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence.

Orders or not, alone and outgunned but unbowed, Twilight Company locks, loads, and prepares to make its boldest maneuver—trading down-and-dirty battle in the trenches for a game-changing strike at the ultimate target: the very heart of the Empire’s military machine.

Very Good


Fans of hard-military style novels will find this to be a great read, but the average reader may find it to be a challenge.

Although I would not hand Battlefront: Twilight Company to a casual reader, I would recommend this novel to someone who values the hardships of war. I found this book to be realistic due to its dark nature. Soldiers are recruited, soldiers die, soldiers have their moments of triumph, and soldiers make devastating mistakes. Twilight Company is a bit of a difficult read as far as storytelling, but you may enjoy it if you like the nitty-gritty reality of warfare.

Alexander Freed is one of those Star Wars authors who goes deep into the lore to craft an original story that can take fans on an epic journey in less than 400 pages. His writing and storytelling are very technical, and there were points I had a hard time following what was going on, but not of any fault of the writing itself. I personally have found I'm not the biggest fan of his style in general. However, his characters are top-notch. I will pretty much die for everyone he introduces within two pages of first meeting them. To be able to connect with a character in a Star Wars book is a huge deal, and this is one of many things Freed nails every time. The characters were the redeeming quality of this story for me. If you're interested in the military side of the Rebellion, you'll really enjoy this one.
