Review: If you want great X-Wing novels go read Michael A Stackpole's Rogue Squadron series of books. When Wraith Squadron came out I figured it would be as good as Stackpole's as it was a continuation of sorts, however the two authors simply aren't on the same level. Stackpole GETS Star Wars, probably because he has written so much of it whereas Allston at the time of Wraith Squadron was new to the genre. Whereas Stackpoles Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron is dark at times, gritty, real to life and 'feels' Star Wars, if you will, and the missions make sense and are carried out in tense action scenes, with Allston's work its as if a college student broke into a Star Wars writing room one night when drunk and thought he could make up a new even better team ... and he couldn't. The missions are confusing and stagger along as if Allston couldn't quite figure out what to write next, as if he had wanted to go somewhere but didn't have the route mapped out. The dialogue is almost a parody of Star Wars at times with, again, college style humour and fighter pilots sounding like Frat Bro's pulling pranks on each other during a war time mission which wouldn't happen, but Wedge goes along with it and even joins in during the Wraith Squadron series of books. That said there are good sections in these books, the fighting scenes are usually well described although after a while one space battle sounds just like another. Overall a let down from the X-Wing series.
