Finally we get a story from the Empire’s point of view. Not a Darth Vader or Darth Maul story but rather a story from the grunts’ point of view. An elite squad of stormtroopers, one is a survivor of the Death Star incident, is brought together to infiltrate the Rebel Scum. Inferno Squad are sent out on several missions, but one hits closer to home than expected.

The female lead read by narrator Janina Gavankar is the perfect mix.

Publisher’s Summary

The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the resulting destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. In response to this stunning defeat, the Imperial Navy has authorized the formation of an elite team of soldiers, known as Inferno Squad. Their mission: infiltrate and eliminate the remnants of Saw Gerrera’s Partisans. Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire – no matter what the cost. Now, Inferno Squad must prove their status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But as the danger intensifies and the threat of discovery grows, how far will Inferno Squad go to ensure the safety of the Empire?
