Synopsis: The Bacta War startes immediately after the Krytos Trap. In this one, the Rebellion is still in need of more and more bacta to cure the Krytos Virus "Iceheart" left behind on Coruscant. The virus is now infecting 95% of the planet's alien human population......

Review: The Rebellion is in need of Bacta. Thousands of non-human residents have already died and just maintaining the health of the rest is breaking the Rebellion's bank. Ysanne Issard has taken over Thyferra, the planet responsible for the manufacture of almost all the Bacta produced.

The Rebels need to liberate Thyferra and take control of the planet to make use of the badly needed Bacta. But first, the Rebels need more weapons to fight off Issard's group of Imperial Star Destroyers. The Rogues have a new base of operations, a space station at Yag'Duhl. It is equipped with hundreds of proton torpedos andother weaponry, which should play a key part inthe battle against Issard.

Booster Terrik, who is introduced in this story as Mirax Terrik's father, has been given control of the station and will run it throughout the campaign to liberate Thyferra. But, Issard has discovered the station and plans to destroy it. The Rogues are forced to evacuate the station and the system. It will be up to Rogue Squadron to free Thyferra from Issard's rule and gain control of the Bacta Planet.

Read on to see what happens. I liked this book because it was exciting. But with the non-human population involved in a terrible disaster, it can get really tedious. It also gets interesting when Corran Horn is thinking of marrying Mirax Terrik. Booster doesn't like the fact that his daughter wants to marry someone from CoreSec. Bottom line, this book is another one to read
