Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

The attempt was made to fit quite much into this short story, but as is, it did not manage to really convey much. It tells the story of several characters on both sides of the conflict befor and during the battle of Endor, yet it neither manages to really introduce the characters, nor does it retell the complete battle from their points of view.
In its defence it at least manages to tell the two-sided story of the final hours of Vader's ex flagship, but there is not enough here, to really connect to the legacy of that ship or its crew. So instead of wasting time on the doomed, the story could have concentrated more on the good guys. Maybe we will be seeing Blade Squadron in future books as secondary characters and these short stories will be laying a foundation for us the care more about them.
Even though we know the final outcome of that battle, we do not get to know the exact fate of Blade Squadron, at least not in what was published on starwars.com, so this two-parter leaves us uncomfortably hanging.

Rating: 3 / 5
