Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers
The Rebels have taken Coruscant, but their problems are far from over. A killer virus called Krytos is wiping out the indigenous population, and a counter-revolution is exploding. At the center of the storm is the highly charged treason trial of Rebel hero Tycho Celchu. While agents provocateurs carry out their acts of terrorism, the fledging state can be defended only by the blood and courage of Rogue Squadron. As the X-wing fighters scramble to save the Rebellion, Corran Horn, given up for dead in Ysanne Isard's inescapable prison, discovers he alone holds the key to freeing Coruscant from the Empire!

The Krytos Trap, being the third installment of the X-Wing series, is yet another shift in storytelling from Stackpole. The first book in the series is a military book, the second is an espionage book, and this one is a mix of a high-profile court case and a prison escape. While that might sound like a big change, it's worthwhile because Stackpole really pulls it off in an entertaining manner. Also, if you've made it to this point in the series, you're clearly invested in the characters. Overall, The Krytos Trap was the second best book in the series so far, just behind Rogue Squadron. The ending was on such an epic scale that it makes the entire book worthwhile!
