Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

The Bacta War is the final installment in the initial story arc of X-Wing books focused on Rogue Squadron. The events move on from the liberation of Coruscant to the turf war for the planet Thyferra, the galaxy’s primary source of the healing agent bacta. Without bacta, millions will suffer. But Ysanne Isard has seized control of the planet and instilling suffering is her MO. Corran will have to recruit help from a pirate king he once imprisoned, Booster Terrik. Can the Rogues stand a chance against Isard’s Super Star Destroyer?

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

While the Alliance fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord, Ysanne Isard has seized control of Thyferra, intending to use its precious supply of bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. It falls to Rogue Squadron - undermanned, deprived of Alliance support and even weapons - to oppose Isard's dangerous designs, defeat her powerful complement of Star Destroyers, and free Thyferra from her iron rule. But when Isard discovers the Squadron's secret base, its ragtag group of pilots must scramble for survival in a winner-take-all battle against Isard's overwhelming and seemingly superior force.

X-Wing: The Bacta War provides a satisfying conclusion to a number of plot-lines that have been building since the first book. The book is even more exciting than the previous couple of books in the series, as it builds up to a dramatic finish to the events of those books. Of course, Stackpole leaves enough open to continue the series, but The Bacta War definitely provides a satisfying end to the story-line built over the past couple of volumes.
