The title of the novel is Star Wars : X-Wing Rogue Squadron.
The author's name is Michael A. Stackpole.
The type of book is fantasy / adventure.
A) Corran Horn : Corran is a pilot in training for the Alliance or the Rebellion.
He is the best rookie pilot on the Rogue Squadron. He is a silent person who
does not like the social life but does like the spotlight once in a while. He
was a CorSec security officer on the planet Correlia in his late teens'.
B) Kirtan Loor : Kirtan is a cold, isolated man that lives on the planet of
Churba. He is a high ranked officer for the Imperial Army. He later gets
promoted to a commanding officer and sits on the right side of the head leader
of intelligence for the Emperor.
Setting : The setting first takes place in the Rebel's secret base. The setting
then moves to a swamp planet by the name of Imdaar. The setting then moves to
Imperial headquarters on the planet of Coruscant.
Plot Summary : Corran and his new partners are given a limited amount of
training time and are sent out on a mission in just weeks of forming the new
Rogue Squadron X-wing fighter group. This book switches the first-person
perspective between Corran and Kirtan Loor. While Corran and the Rogue Squadron
are off fighting TIE fighters and Star Destroyers, Kirtan is hunting down
information on the squadron and it's pilots.
Personal Reaction : I found this book a little hard to read because of the long
complicated sentences and the complex words Michael Stackpole chose for his book.
I would say the reading level would probably be around grade 11 or 12 because
of the intricate words and long sentences. I liked this book because it not
only was exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat, but because of the easy to

- Star Trek, the name rings bells but you’re sure you’re not interested. 2009 marks the 43rd year of our relationship with the franchise, grown so familiar that we just shrug it aside. Nonetheless, every few years, it puts on a new outfit and twirls around with a hopeful bid. We wished the Franchise no ill will, but at the same time we think: Give it a rest, honey, you're showing your age. Not any more. Director J.J. Abrams' version of Star Trek, 4the 11th movie to spin off from the original 1966 television series, catapults us into the Land Before Star Trek, a innovative and inventively entertaining prequel, with a light spell that makes us consider renewing those vows....

It’s hard to say, but as someone who really enjoyed the previous two Star Wolves installments, I was pretty thrilled to take a crack at this new one. Let’s dive in and take a look, shall we....

Perhaps it is because of those circumstances, she created a novel with intuitive reflections on both life and death, as seen through the life of the main character, Macabea. The story is narrated by Rodrigo S.M., and although Rodrigo attempts to maintain a neutral stance, he is often conflicted by his own perceptions and feelings....
