battlefront-twilight-companyRandom House has posted a blurb for Alexander Freed’s Battlefront: Twilight Company.

A companion novel inspired by the hotly anticipated videogame Star Wars: Battlefront, this action-packed adventure follows a squad of soldiers caught in the trenches of the ultimate galactic war between good and evil.

The bravest soldiers. The toughest warriors. The ultimate survivors.

 
Among the stars and across the vast expanses of space, the Galactic Civil War rages. On the battlefields of multiple worlds in the Mid Rim, legions of ruthless stormtroopers—bent on crushing resistance to the Empire wherever it arises—are waging close and brutal combat against an armada of freedom fighters. In the streets and alleys of ravaged cities, the front-line forces of the Rebel Alliance are taking the fight to the enemy, pushing deeper into Imperial territory and grappling with the savage flesh-and-blood realities of war on the ground.

Leading the charge are the soldiers—men and women, human and nonhuman—of the sixty-first mobile infantry, better known as Twilight Company. Hard-bitten, war-weary, and ferociously loyal to one another, the members of this renegade outfit doggedly survive where others perish, and defiance is their most powerful weapon against the deadliest odds. When orders come down for the Rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation—and gives the Alliance’s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence.

Orders or not, alone and outgunned but unbowed, Twilight Company locks, loads, and prepares to make its boldest maneuver—trading down-and-dirty battle in the trenches for a game-changing strike at the ultimate target: the very heart of the Empire’s military machine.

Battlefront: Twilight Company will be out November 3 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

There are a lot of Star Wars podcasts out there, and I listen to a few, so I thought fans might be interested in a combination podcasts review/roundup. Expect this to be a periodic column, and be sure to let us know what Star Wars podcasts you’re interested in.

Bombad Radio: Episode 76 is a must hear podcast for The Clone Wars fans as it includes a great interview with voice actor Tom Kane. Tom performed a few voices, from Yoda and Yularen to his absolutely perfect Morgan Freeman. It also delves into some details on a Yoda arc Tom worked on for The Clone Wars Season 6 which we may or may never see. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
