Against all odds, the controversial Wraith Squadron has survived its first covert mission. But now they are called upon to cheat death twice. This time Wedge Antilles sends them in to stop the warlord Zsinj and his Super Star Destroyer, "Iron Fist." If Zsinj joins the Empire, it could turn the tide of war against the Rebels. The Wraith Squadron's mission: infiltrate the warlord's fleet and uncover his carefully guarded plans. To do so, they must pose as ruthless pirates seeking to join Zsinj's forces. And that means first "becoming" pirates in space lanes teeming with Imperial Navy patrols. If that isn't enough to get them killed, they'll have to pass one last test - a suicide mission for Zsinj.

Review: Iron Fist (Star Wars: X-Wing #6)

User Review  - Craig - Goodreads

Shifting the focus from Kell's inner angst and Donos's regret at losing his squadron in Wraith Squadron to Face, Phanan and new pilot Lara the series lightens up a bit (even though Wraith Squadron was still fun). Can an Ewok fly a Tie Interceptor? This book answers that question and more! Read full review

Review: Iron Fist (Star Wars: X-Wing #6)

User Review  - Trent - Goodreads

Another great X-Wing book. Still not a bad one out of the six I've read. I like how Aaron Allston's entries are even more humorous than Stackpole's while still keeping the feel of those first four books in the series. Read full review

About the author (1998)

Aaron Allston was born in Corsicana, Texas on December 8, 1960. He attended the University of Texas, at Austin, briefly, intending to study journalism, but after a semester at the university and a year working for The Austin American Statesman newspaper, he found he did not particularly like either college or journalism. At that point, he went to work for Space Gamer magazine and quickly moved up to the position of editor. He also began designing supplements to role-playing games, such as Dungeons and Dragons, on a freelance basis. By 1983, he was working full-time as a freelance game designer and editor. His first novel, Web of Danger, was based on the Top Secret/S.I. game line. His other works include the Wraith Squadron series for the Star Wars Expanded Universe line, Galatea in 2-D, and Doc Sidhe. He died from heart failure on February 27, 2014.
