[Battlefront: Twilight Company] [] Battlefront: Twilight Company
By Alexander Freed
Reviewed by Ewan, Star Wars Books & Comics

Freed has created a compelling and realistic story [...] Focusing on a small four-to-five person squad rather than the full compliment of a company, Freed is able to create tight, close-knit relationships amongst his core characters. The reader journeys, fights, survives or, ultimately in some cases, dies, with this group [...] it is a character-driven story with each character having multiple layers that are slowly peeled away as the story progresses from battle to battle [...] Freed creates a gritty and realistic portrayal of soldiering [...] has a truth of realism and purpose for its characters not seen often enough in the Star Wars galaxy....read full review
