NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED * A companion novel inspired by 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. Praise for Battlefront: Twilight Company "A novel that ties in to a video game based on a sprawling sci-fi franchise shouldn't be this good. . . . Battlefront: Twilight Company effortlessly thrusts readers onto the frontlines of the Galactic Civil War in a gripping tale."--New York Daily News "Compelling . . . an entertaining journey through a galaxy in turmoil . . . Battlefront: Twilight Company explores what happens to the cannon fodder fighting and dying in the background of space opera's cinematic action sequences. Focusing on the life of a few low-ranking Rebel grunts caught up in a vast interstellar conflict, the novel is an enjoyable tale of interstellar adventure and drama."--IGN "Satisfyingly complex, immersive and moving . . . a war story unlike any Star Wars book that's come before it."--Roqoo Depot "A military thriller [with] some pretty impressive actions scenes [and] the lived-in, gritty feel of the original trilogy . . . [Alexander] Freed shows us the military side of the Star Wars universe in a way that we haven't seen much before, while also giving readers new perspectives on classic characters and moments."--Tech Times "Twilight Company is one of the greatest Star Wars stories ever about someone doggedly, cynically coming to understand why acting according to the light side is important."--Den of Geek "The strongest canon piece of Star Wars literature thus far . . . sure to be a fan-pleasing favorite . . . Explosive action scenes and dark humor only punctuate this character-driven tale [with] heavy world-building and cameos from other characters throughout the Star Wars pantheon."--Alternative Nation… (mais)

Was a fun read that gives a view into the soldiers on the ground in the Star Wars Universe. No space battles sets this book apart from all the other Star Wars books I've read. It does visit the Battle of Hoth though and shows that the battle was actually much bigger than shown in the movies. It also visits the planet of Sullest which is featured in the game Battlefront. It is interesting to see the thoughts of the characters about why they fight for the rebellion and how they go about fighting the war, which is focused on a small part of a much grander scale.

In terms of clues or new information for the upcoming movies, nothing is apparent. This book takes place between the the movie A New Hope and a little after Empire Strikes Back. ( )

I wish I had enjoyed this book more than I did. Well written, lovely cast of characters (including very satisfyingly diverse and complex women), nice nods both to previous stories and what I suspect are hints regarding upcoming movie. And yet... It's all so grim and gritty and dark and hopeless, despite a victory of sorts at the end. I much prefer my Star Wars to be more hopeful and lighthearted than this. So it is merely my personal tastes than ended up on 4 stars rather than five, there is nothing wrong with the writing. If you like military books more than I do all the grittiness might be a good thing, I suppose. ( )

I'll be honest, I'm super not feeling this one at all. DNF @ 103 pages. Maybe I'll try it again later.

Fun Star Wars book. One of the better ones out of the new canon. ( )

While I have read wonderful books by first time authors, I don’t think I can recall ever having read a better first novel than Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company, by Alexander Freed. The complex plotting, the in-depth cast of characters, the constant action, and the overall authentic Star Wars feel . . . simply amazing. Top-notch!

The more Star Wars books I read, the more common it is to have main, or secondary characters that are stormtroopers. We saw this human-quality with Finn in The Force Awakens. It is an aspect of the saga that I think a lot of people/readers forget, and writers neglect. Freed incorporates a minor character, Thara Nyende (SP 475), in Twilight Company. I would not have minded even more of her story. Perhaps in a future book we will see her again.

Captain Howl runs a team known as Twlight Company, a rag-tag group of Marine-like volunteers who joined the rebellion with hopes of crushing the Empire. After acquiring Governer Everi Chalis, once part of the Empire’s elite, the rebellion sets out on a series of attacks meant to cripple, as well as mislead the Empire.

Namir is in charge of a small team of rebels. Friends. They’ve been through a lot. The challenges ahead are some of the biggest they’ve ever faced. Tough calls need to be made. Not everyone is on board with Chalis’ ideas. Her motives are questionable, and trust among everyone is repeatedly tested.

If Chalis’ plans fail, it means an almost certain death for Twilight Company. Namir must make decisions he knows will leave him exposed in front of suspecting eyes, and must also figure out his own motive before choosing to right things for wrong reasons.

Filled with constant battles against the Empire, twists and unpredictable turns, Alexander Freed has penned a clichéd page turner! As indicated above, this was his first novel, I pray it is not his last. I want more from this guy. I want more Star Wars tales from him, but will absolutely read anything else he writes.

Battlefront: Twilight Company is by far my all-time favorite Star Wars read to date!
