Today we got our first look at the cover for “Star Wars: Victory’s Price”, the epic conclusion to the Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron trilogy!
Looks like the Alphabets are forming up one last time!
Written once again by Alexander Freed, the epic conclusion to the Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron trilogy, following Alphabet Squadron and Shadow Fall, finally has a cover! Amy Ratcliffe over at Nerdist dropped the big reveal along with the book’s official synopsis.
Check them both out below!
In the wake of Yrica Quell’s shocking decision—and one of the fiercest battles of their lives—the remnants of Alphabet Squadron seek answers and closure across a galaxy whose old war scars are threatening to reopen.
Soran Keize has returned to the tip of Shadow Wing’s spear. Operation Cinder, the terrifying protocol of planetary extermination which began in the twilight of the Imperial era, burns throughout the galaxy. Shadow Wing is no longer wounded prey fleeing the hunters of the New Republic. With its leader, its strength has returned, and its Star Destroyers and TIE squadrons lurk in the darkness between stars, carrying out the fallen Emperor’s final edict of destruction—as well as another, stranger mission, one Keize has championed not for the dying Empire, but for its loyal soldiers.
Alphabet Squadron’s ships are as ramshackle and damaged as their spirits, but they’ve always had each other. Now, as they face the might of Keize’s reborn juggernaut, they aren’t even sure they have that. How do you catch a shadow? How do you kill it? And when you’re finally victorious, who pays the price?
Without question “Star Wars: Shadow Fall” will end up being my favorite Star Wars release this year. You can check out my interview with the book’s author, Alexander Freed, to find out why but it’s an emotionally resonant, spellbinding, and intelligent high adventure unlike any other Star Wars book in recent memory.
This incredible new cover, incorporates the same aesthetics from the first first two books, but this time features a bearded A-Wing pilot, Wyl Lark. In the second chapter, Shadow Fall, Lark had matured considerably in the absence of both Chass na Chadic and Yrica Quell, having to take on a leadership role.
With so much at stake in the days ahead and Shadow Wing regaining much of it’s former glory, and squad, Wyl’s resolve will be tested like never before. Who will survive to tell the story of Alphabet Squadron? It looks as though victory will indeed have a price.
Luckily we won’t have to wait too long with a March 2021 release. You can pre-order “Star Wars: Victory’s Price” by clicking HERE!
