From the Inside Flap
When the Alliance Fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord, tyrant Ysanne Isard has taken control of Thyferra, intending to use its supply of medicinal bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. Undermanned, deprived of Alliance support, Rogue Squadron must oppose Isard's plans, defeat her Star Destroyer fleet, and free Thyferra from her rule in a winner-take-all battle against a seemingly superior force.

Ysanne Isard finally gets center stage. She's not very threatening at all. In fact, I wonder why she's supposed to be such a natural heir to the Emperor's throne. She's not military command, she's military intelligence. She has no experience commanding the military and this lack of expertise really shows in "The Bacta War." It's even apparent to all who work under her. The lack of a capable villain does hurt the story. This is Star Wars and we're only in the fourth book of the X-Wing series, so of course we know who will prevail. But an incompetent villain is no challenge. I wasn't on the edge of my seat wondering what brilliant move she was going to make. I was just waiting for the next stupid mistake.
It was wonderful to see the dynamics between Corran, Mirax, Booster and Karrde. I wasn't a fan of Corran at first, but he's becoming more likeable. It's good he's finally found someone. I look forward to reading more about them in future books.
This was an entertaining read. Good but not great. The ending leaves more to be explored, reminding me this is only a part of a larger series, but I was left satisfied.
