NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Set in the aftermath of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, this action-packed prequel to the hotly anticipated videogame Battlefront II introduces the Empire’s elite force: Inferno Squad.

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. But not for long. In retaliation, the elite Imperial soldiers of Inferno Squad have been called in for the crucial mission of infiltrating and eliminating the Partisans—the rebel faction once led by notorious Republic freedom fighter Saw Gerrera.

Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire—no matter the cost. Now Inferno Squad must prove its status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But the growing threat of being discovered in their enemy’s midst turns an already dangerous operation into a do-or-die acid test they dare not fail. To protect and preserve the Empire, to what lengths will Inferno Squad go . . . and how far beyond them?

The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.

  • A more worthwhile purchase than the game it's suppose to sell.

    By Linklex7
    This EA Star Wars Battlefront 2 tie-in novel is way better than the actually game it's suppose to advertise. It does a great job of letting out see things from the Empire's point of view, why would someone willingly join a faction with obviously evil leaders like The Emperor or Darth Vader. It fleshes out the character just enough that you start to relate to them all, while keeping the action flowing and entertaining. If you're a SW fan, I'd honestly say skip the game and pick up the novel instead.
  • Amazing

    It’s an awesome thrilling book that ties into the battlefront 2 campaign.
  • A page turn from the start!

    One of the best books in the new Star Wars canon. This book will get you excited for the new game coming out.

    By Rafabk
    This is a perfect prologue to the next battlefront game. Is was very hard to put the book down. This book made me even more hyped for the battlefront sequel and I'm so very happy I got to learn more about inferno squad and the characters it comprises Being a true Star Wars fan makes the experience of reading this book very satisfying Hope you are enjoy this book as much as I have.
  • Straight forward good book

    By Blkarrow3171
    No twists in the writing, straight forward, and to the point. Well written as good as any in the new canon. Needed some more reason to like all 4 members on inferno squad, but made enough of a story for the main protagonist.
  • Had potential, could've been better.

    By Keith Barksdale
    Not a terrible read, but the focus of the book turned from the forming of Inferno Squad to a soul-searching novel. The writer had good intentions in the beginning, and I felt it evened out the playing field as far as the Empire and rebels go. Most books portray the Empire as a bunch of idiots who can't aim, but this book put into perspective how the Empire actually has well trained troops and legit tactics and loyalist, not just everyone trying to jump ship to the rebellion. However, I felt this would have been a better book if written in the same style as the Republic Commando series or the Imperial Commando novel. Instead, what starts off as four Imperial spec ops agents trying to stop a rebel plot turns into a montage of references to the Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels series, as well as a "am I doing the right thing for the Empire?" soul search. And also not really as action packed as you would hope for something written geared towards a game called Battlefront.
  • Amazing

    This story is absolutely AMAZING!!!! It hits you right in the feels
  • Everyone is incompetent

    By ben jam tra
    It is kinda hard to take the Empire or Rebels seriously. The Darth Vader makes countless countless mistakes defending the Death Star. Iden is able to steal a rebel ship from the rebel headquarters all by herself. Basically the Galactic Civil War is who is the least incompetent.
  • Great read

    By Spcrobertson
    One can say this is actually a pretty well put together book. The story is rich in the characters are enjoyable. I can honestly say that I love that it allows us to see behind the masses of the imperials and out of that in ways they aren't that different from the rebels
