As a new student at Lothal's Imperial Academy, Zare Leonis does everything it takes to pass as a model cadet. But secretly, he is a hidden enemy among Imperial loyalists, determined to discover the truth about his missing sister and to bring down the Empire. Luckily, he has his tech-savvy girlfriend Merei by his side, willing to help him however she can-even if it means dealing with criminals in the shadiest parts of Capital City. In the meantime Zare must face down a dangerous foe of his own: Lieutenant Curahee, who seems bent on pushing Zare to his breaking point. Join these rebellious cadets as they risk it all to take on the fearsome Empire.

This story occurs approximately 5 years before Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2016:

Even though the rather annoying rugby games have been replaced by still annoying training exercises, the book manages to hold an interest, but there was one thing that dragged it all down for me.
I expected this to be not a sequel to the previous book, but to the Rebels episode titled "Breaking ranks". But it turned out we went some time back and witnessed the events that lead up to this episode from the point of view of young Zare Leonis. The book does not stop at leading up to the episode, it tells it till the very end making it essentially a very expanded adaptation of said episode. I would rather suggest reading first the book, and later watching the episode, because the author manages to make Morgan's true identity a mystery. I may criticize this one a bit to much, but the writing is engaging, the story is interesting and I am still very eager to see young Zare in action.

Rating: 3 / 5
