"Above the crest, a banner read: Alphabet Squadron."
With just under two weeks until the release of the hotly anticipated Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed, Del Rey has been feeding the hype train pretty generously by offering us quite a few sneak peaks at the project.
First, it was an excerpt in the back of TIE Fighter #1.
Then it was a giant reveal of character portraits introducing our new favorite squad.
And today, it was yet another exclusive excerpt over at StarWars.com.
Released this morning, the excerpt follows Nath, Chass, Wyl, and Kairos as they discover what their new leader, Yrica Quell, has done to their beloved ships.
The selected text can be read here and already has our minds buzzing with questions!
These questions incorporate details from the excerpt, so head on over to StarWars.com with the link above before continuing on.
Will we be able to witness the raid on Pandem Nai for ourselves?
How much interplay will we get between Alphabet Squadron and other squads like Meteor & Hail?
How long will it be before I get the same tattoo emblazoned on my own skin?
These questions and more will be answered with the official release of Alphabet Squadron on June 11th. Make sure to pre-order the book at Amazon using our affiliate link to help us out a bit, and if you already have a pre-order, grab your exclusive Alphabet Squadron patch while supplies last!
