From the Inside Flap
The Rebels have taken the Imperial headquarters world of Coruscant, but their problems are far from over. A killer virus called Krytos is spreading among the population, and fomenting a counter-revolution, at the same time as the treason trial of Rebel hero Tycho Celchu. And X-wing pilot Corran Horn, given up for dead in "Iceheart"'s inescapable prison, discovers an extraordinary power in himself--the power of the Force!
About the Author
Michael A. Stackpole is the New York Times bestselling author of many titles in the Star Wars universe, including many of the Star Wars X-Wing novels and the New Jedi Order: Dark Tide novels Onslaught and Ruin. When not chained to a desk madly fighting deadlines, he plays indoor soccer, rides a mountain bike, and reads, but not all at the same time. Stackpole lives in Arizona with Liz Danforth and a small pack of Cardigan Welsh corgis.

Stackpole successfully blends a military feel, a stereotypical elite (and unconventional) military unit, and the Star Wars universe to create an interesting and worthy addition to the Star Wars universe. Although occasionally some of the "big names" from Star Wars make an appearance or are mentioned, this series focuses on the pilots in Rogue Squadron.
"The Krytos Trap" picks up immediately where "Wedge's Gamble" leaves off. However, because Rogue Squadron is back in its X-Wings and no longer operating unrealistically as commandos on Coruscant, this book is much truer to the first book. The book is filled with galactic intrigue and politics, a court-martial that ends a bit too dramatically, an evil plan to foil the former Rebels, and exciting outer space combat.
Stackpole's third book in the X-Wing series is an improvement over the second book. It returns the story back to outer space and leads to the exciting conclusion in the fourth book.
Dogfights take a back seat as plot development becomes more central. Here, we finally see more character development, a more believable storyline, better dialogue. I spent most of the book wondering what would happen to Tycho and how was Corran going to escape . . . and I cared!
I still don't understand why people think Kirtan Loor is such a villain. He's more a buffoon now than ever before -- motivated only by self-preservation, not by some grand, evil scheme. In such a role, he plays it well.
Although I've been told this book is part of a tetrology, "Krytos Trap" could easily be the end of a trilogy. I am not left dangling off a ledge, but there is more left that could be told. If "Rogue Squadron" did not impress you, hang in there! It does get better.
Corran's discovery of his family's Jedi heritage seems like a set up for future adventures in the Corran Horn story line.
The rest of the story seems mostly a set up for the next book, The Bacta War, which I am acually looking forward to, based on the first 2 books of the story.
