Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

They are the X-wing fighters: sleek, swift, and deadly. And as the battle against the Empire rages across the vastness of space, the pilots risk both their lives and their machines for the cause of the Rebel Alliance. Now they must embark on a dangerous espionage mission, braving betrayal and death on the Imperial homeworld to smash the power of a ruthless foe!

It is at the evil heart of a battered and reeling Empire: Coruscant, the giant city-world from whose massive towers the Imperial High Command directs the war. The Rebels will invade this mighty citadel in a daring move to bring the Empire to its knees. But first Wedge Antilles and his X-wing pilots must infiltrate Coruscant to gain vital intelligence information.

Capture means death or, worse, enslavement by the vicious leader known as "Iceheart": Ysanne Isard, now Emperor in all but name. And one of Rogue Squadron's own is already her slave, a traitor hidden behind a mask of innocence, working to betray both colleagues and the Rebellion itself.

Staff Comments

Wedge's Gamble was a solid follow up to Rogue Squadron, although it is entirely different in many ways. While it still follows the exploits of Wedge Antilles and his Rogue Squadron, it takes them out of their X-wings and places them behind enemy lines on an undercover mission on Coruscant. If Rogue Squadron could be classified as a military novel, Wedge's Gamble can certainly be classified as an espionage novel, so take that into account. Overall, it's similar enough that you should enjoy it if you enjoyed Rogue Squadron. Especially if you loved the characters.
