Aaron Allston: Mercy Kill

The ​X-wing aces of Wraith Squadron soar back into action, on a full-throttle mission to match wits and weapons with an Imperial General gone rogue.

Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand—for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission.

A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire. With orders to expose and apprehend the traitor—and license to do so by any and all means—the Wraiths will become thieves, pirates, impostors, forgers . . . and targets, as they put their guts, their guns, and their… (tovább)

Aaron Allston: Mercy Kill

Ahogy a Halálos Iramokból a tuningautó-versenyzés, úgy koptak ki ennek a sorozatnak a fókuszából a vadászrepülőkkel vívott csaták. Tényleg csak két nyúlfarknyi jelenetig, mutatóba volt röpködéses lövöldözés, de ha aként kezelem, ami, vagyis kémregényként, akkor teljesen jól megállja a helyét.
Nagyon tetszettek a szereplők, és főleg az, hogy a kvázi főszereplő Röfi volt, egy nem emberi lény! Ez sajnos nagyon ritka jelenség, a kánon könyveknél már kínosan odafigyelnek arra, hogy az emberi változatosság minden formája, színe és neme képviseltesse magát, de a galaxis sokszínűsége csak kullog mögötte, úgy kell keresni a nem emberi főszereplős könyveket, mint tűt a szénakazalban.
Egy fél csillagot levonok, mert izgalmas és lendületes volt, jó helyszíneken és az írótól megszokott humoros jelenetekkel, de ennél nagyobb fordulatokra és meglepetésekre számítottam. Végig én gondoltam túl, hogy vajon mi az, ami valójában nem úgy van, mint ahogy sejteni lehet, de a legtöbb dolog pontosan úgy volt.

He turned to Dia. “I promise I will never make you so mad that you borrow an X-wing, take it up, and use it to burn me to a cinder.”

“Smart of you.” She gestured at the third chair. “Whose turn is it to cook?”

“Yours.”

“We’ll order something.”

He sat and turned to his daughter. “And you, young lady . . . Beware of older military officers who chase you when you’re a teenager. They’ll just dump you when you turn thirty.”

She sighed and rolled her eyes. “Dad, I hate it when you bring work home.”

“Myri, I thought you were making your living gambling. Nice and safe on the Errant Venture. Making a fortune, from what I heard.”

She nodded, her attention on her rifle.

“So? Why this?”

She smiled. “You must be so proud.”

“What? Of whom?”

“That’s what they tell me. Mostly about Daddy. ‘Wedge Antilles’s daughter? You must be so proud.’ And I am. Some people know about Mom’s career. ‘You must be so proud.’ And I am. Some people know about my sister’s record in the last war. ‘You must be so proud.’ Yes, yes, I am. But maybe it’s time for someone to be proud of what I do. Maybe even me.”

Scut, Mulus, and the gold protocol droid boarded. Scut and Mulus took seats. The droid pulled her faceplate away, revealing the features of Myri. “It’s impossible to sit down in this thing.”
Turman gave her a look that included no sympathy. “Lean against the back panel. Don’t fall down when we decelerate.”

Dashan was heard to murmur, “In case you die and they get away, they need their facts to survive.”
“Easy, child.” Usan kept his tone calm and melodic. “That human girl who went off on her own mission? The daughter of Wedge Antilles. I doubt these people are of a mind to sacrifice us to lighten their load and just take our knowledge away.”
Dashan’s reply was a sniff.
