Star Wars: Shadow Fall

Set after Return of the Jedi, The Alphabet Squadron, an elite force of New Republic pilots, are tasked with hunting down an Imperial group called Shadow Wing. The first installment, simply called Alphabet Squadron, was released back in 2019. The hunt for Shadow Wing continues in Shadow Fall, written by the brilliant Alexander Freed.

Originally released in June 2020, Shadow Fall fell in the midst of the COVID pandemic and as a result hardback copies were rather hard to come by. But fear not Star Wars fans. Paperback copies of Shadow Fall will be available to purchase in exactly one week. So if you weren’t lucky enough to grab your own hardback copy, you’ll be able to grab the paperback.

What’s great about this release is that it falls very closely to the third and final installment of the Alphabet Squadron series. The final book, Victory’s Price , is set to launch at the beginning of March. So jump in and experience Star Wars in the shoes of the galaxy’s best pilots.

Alphabet Squadron’s hunt for the most dangerous TIE fighters in the galaxy continues in this STAR WARS adventure!

News of the New Republic’s victory still reverberates through the galaxy. In its wake, the capital ships of the newly legitimized galactic government journey to the farthest stars, seeking out and crushing the remnants of Imperial tyranny. But some old ghosts are harder to banish than others. And none are more dangerous than Shadow Wing.

Yrica Quell’s ragtag Alphabet Squadron still leads the search for Shadow Wing, but they’re no closer to their goal—and the pressure to find their quarry before it’s too late has begun to shake them apart. Determined to finish the fight once and for all, Quell works with New Republic Intelligence’s contentious Caern Adan and the legendary General Hera Syndulla to prepare the riskiest gambit of her starfighting career—a trap for Shadow Wing that could finish the chase once and for all.

But in the darkness, their enemy has evolved. Soran Keize, last of the Imperial aces, has stepped into the power vacuum at the head of Shadow Wing, reinvigorating the faltering unit in their hour of need. Once adrift in the aftershocks of the war, Keize has found meaning again, leading the lost soldiers of his unit through to safety. The only thing standing in his way? The most mismatched squadron in the New Republic Navy, led by his former mentee: the traitor Yrica Quell.

Star Wars: Shadow Fall is set to arrive on February 25th and will be priced at £9.99. You can pick it up from retailers like Waterstones and Blackwells.
