Description

The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the resulting destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. In response to this stunning defeat, the Imperial Navy has authorized the formation of an elite team of soldiers, known as Inferno Squad. Their mission: infiltrate and eliminate the remnants of Saw Gerrera's Partisans. Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire - no matter what the cost. Now, Inferno Squad must prove their status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But as the danger intensifies and the threat of discovery grows, how far will Inferno Squad go to ensure the safety of the Empire?

Inferno Squad Squandered

I'm a huge fan of Star Wars novels. I love the voice acting and especially the music intertwined with the different sounds of the Star Wars universe. So when I heard Inferno Squad would give us a look from the perspective of the Empire AND set up Battlefront II I was excited. Unfortunately, this book misses out on what I think was most important. And ultimately falls flat.

The opening Act is incredible. It puts the listener in one of the most iconic moments of the Star Wars universe but you see it through the eyes of an imperial tie fighter pilot. From there, the book transitions to the formation of Inferno Squad, an elite group of imperial operatives. Unfortunately, this elite group goes on some of the most uninteresting missions of all time. If you think they're going to be going in behind enemy lines, hitting the rebels where it hurts the most, and getting into intense Star ship fights with their state of the art starship then think again. The majority of this book is the Squad going undercover, trying to find out where the Dreamers are getting their information to coordinate their attacks. It's drawn out, boring, and does nothing for character development. The main character, Aiden, is made to be a strong female lead, but by the end, she seems like someone who should have never been given charge of Inferno Squad. I actually am upset that I read this book now because it will give me a negative outlook on her character in the Battlefront II campaign. Hopefully the story in the game will be better. In the end, this book suffers from what some of the other Star Wars novels suffer from -- telling a story that has no impact on the reader's knowledge of the Star Wars universe. The voiceover were great for the women characters and confusing for the men, but she did the best she could. Skip this one if you can

Good start

I really wanted to appreciate the view from the Imperial side and I did at first. Personally, the second and third acts sort of fell flat for me. Maybe I walked in wanting too much but I was hoping for a team coming together and instead I got wrapped up in minor conflicts. I appreciate the team and what it will become though

Terrible story and horrid ending.

Supposed to be an espionage story in the Empire. Turns into an emotional cringe fest.

Not worth the money

I own and have read/listened to 57 Star Wars novels. This is by far and away the worst of the bunch. The narrator was flat and choppy. Often it was difficult to determine which character was speaking and to understand the emotion. At times she sounded too fast, to sharp, and too 'perfect' to be a human and sounded like a computer voice over.

The good news is that the story itself, wouldn't have benefited from a more talented narrator. I struggled to make it through. The story was predictable, slow, lacked character development and didn't at all help you feel the characters. There was no connection between the characters trials and tribulations with the reader/ listener. The story lacked cohesiveness and seemed to be all over the place. I didn't like one single character or their roles within the operations. All together the book was boring. I would not in anyway recommend this book, author, or narrator to a single person.
Any other star wars book will serve you well.

Great Story and Janina Gavankar does a great job of voice acting. Love the sound effects and music.

A thrilling tale from the Imperial point of view

Inferno Squad is standalone story, all you need to be familiar with is the Star Wars films (including Rogue One). It spins directly out of A New Hope, as the Empire forms an elite squad of Imperial agents to deal with the remainder of Saw Gerrera's Partisans. Terrorism, moral ambiguity in a time of war, undercover Imperial agents, and lots of classic Star Wars action blend together in this thrilling story. The narrator is excellent, up there with Marc Thompson and Jonathan Davis.

Love It!

I really enjoyed the fact that they had the main character of the video game do the narration. You can tell she loves what she is doing, and is very passionate about the story!

Janina was great but the book sucked

Couldn’t even finish it. Janina’s narration was fine and I feel bad for her because she is really pumped about her new role in Star Wars. The story is just boring and dumb.

underwhelming

struggled through this one. I enjoyed the first Battlefront and was excited for the sequel. this did not meet expectations. The voice acting and writing are cringy at times, and the story never feels like it goes anywhere. the characters feel so generic and uninspired. this is definitely my least favorite new canon star wars book. also not a fan of the voice acting.

Not great

Too many clichés that are cringe-worthy and several references to Earth animals or items or euphemisms take you out of the story. Female characters feel kind of fleshed out while make characters are bland, hard to keep straight, and fairly one-dimensional.

Super Geschichte, nicht so gute Sprecherin

Das Buch ist etwas komplett neues: Endlich mal eine Geschichte die aus den Reihen des Imperiums erzählt wird. Dabei empfindet man so viel Emphatie für die einzelnen Charaktere, obwohl sie eigentlich auf der "bösen" Seite sind.
Allersing gibt es einen negativ Punkt: Die Sprecherin
Es war am Anfang unglaublich schwer die einzelnen Personen zu unterscheiden und sie macht in der Tonlage absolut keinen unterschied zwischen männlichen und weiblichen Personen so dass man wenn man nicht genau zuhört schnell durcheinander kommen kann wer jetzt eigentlich gerade redet. Allerding gewöhnt man sich im verlaufe des Buches daran und es war dann nicht mehr weiter schlimm

Eine packente Erzählung

Eine runde, spannende Erzählung einer Infiltration. Die chraktersierung und das neue einbringem der Protagonistin in das Star Wars Universum wurde gut umgesetzt. Die Sprecherin hat deutlich Englisch geredet und bachte auch die Männlichen Charaktere gut rüber. Der Effekte sind auch sehr gut miteingebracht worden.

Zen, why did you take Zen from me ;__;

10 hours of full excitement, emotions and me standing up at certain parts because I couldn't handle it while lying down. If the story of the game is half as good as this, Battlefront 2 will be the greatest game (atleast story-wise) since "The Last of Us". Thank you.
