Nath Tensent
“I am saving your sorry butt, brother, from the consequences of your actions… If you want to walk away without firing a shot, you be prepared to live with it.”

The biggest unknown about this ex-Imperial pilot is whether Nath Tensent is considering the well-being of anyone besides himself. Is he going to spy on his squadmates to make a self-serving credit? Or will he attempt to sacrifice himself to save a fellow pilot?

Nath is a former Imperial pilot known for blurring the line between right and wrong. As an Imp, his squadron patrolled the Outer Rim, taking bribes from the “shady characters” of the region to look the other way for their criminal activities. Ultimately, his entire squadron defected to the Rebellion where he led dozens of missions with his new partner/droid copilot T5.

Unfortunately, the squadron met a tragic end when the Imperial 204th Fighter Wing, also known as Shadow Wing, ambushed the team, killing everyone besides Nath. Stricken with anger and grief, Nath officially left the Rebellion prior to the destruction of the 2nd Death Star at Endor. The emergence of the New Republic gave Nath the cover he needed to act as an “unofficial” New Republic pilot policing a quiet region of space.

Nath spent this time surviving - because one would hardly label what he was doing as “living” - until another former Imperial located him. Yrica Quell had an offer for him; fly with her, track down Shadow Wing, and get revenge for his former squadron.

While Quell’s offer did nothing to pique his interest, Nath did find his own reasons to become one of the troubled pilots that make up the New Republic Intelligence Working Group more affectionately known as Alphabet Squadron.

Under the leadership of Caern Adan, Nath, Chas na Chadic, Wyl Lark, Kairos, and Quell are determined to bring a stop to the chaos sown by Shadow Wing. But how exactly can this group of misfits, vagabonds, and defectors ever expect to come together and defeat the ruthless and disciplined killing machine of the 204th?

Alphabet Squadron

Written by

The Emperor is dead. But the Empire is still clinging to what remains of its resources to survive. It’s up to a mismatched team of pilots to finish chipping away at what remains of one of the worst threats the recent galaxy has ever known.

If you’re a fan of the X-Wing books on the legends timeline, you will love the debut novel in this trilogy set just after the events of Return of the Jedi. With so little known about the events leading up to The Force Awakens, this is the perfect book to introduce you to the Galactic Empire’s final end.

The first novel in a new trilogy starring veteran New Republic pilots.

On the verge of victory in a brutal war, five New Republic pilots transform from hunted to hunters in this epic STAR WARS adventure. Set after Return of the Jedi, Alphabet Squadron follows a unique team, each flying a different class of starfighter as they struggle to end their war once and for all.
 
The Emperor is dead. His final weapon has been destroyed. The Imperial Army is in disarray. In the aftermath, Yrica Quell is just one of thousands of defectors from her former cause living in a deserters’ shantytown—until she is selected to join Alphabet Squadron.
 
Cobbled together from an eclectic assortment of pilots and starfighters, the five members of Alphabet are tasked by New Republic general Hera Syndulla herself. Like Yrica, each is a talented pilot struggling to find their place in a changing galaxy. Their mission: to track down and destroy the mysterious Shadow Wing, a lethal force of TIE fighters exacting bloody, reckless vengeance in the twilight of their reign.
 
The newly formed unit embodies the heart and soul of the Rebellion: ragtag, resourceful, scrappy, and emboldened by their most audacious victory in decades. But going from underdog rebels to celebrated heroes isn’t as easy as it seems, and their inner demons threaten them as much as their enemies among the stars. The wayward warriors of Alphabet Squad will have to learn to fly together if they want to protect the new era of peace they’ve fought so hard to achieve.

Following the success of his entry novel Alphabet Squadron, Alexander Freed is back and better than ever with the much-anticipated sequel, Shadow Fall. Set shortly after the victorious (albeit costly) battle at Pandem Nai, Yrica Quell's ragtag Alphabet Squadron continues their task of finding and eliminating the elite Imperial 204th Fighter Wing, better know as Shadow Wing. Working under the supervision of New Republic Intelligence Agent Caern Adan and General Hera Syndulla, Quell is faced with the challenge of managing her ill-fitting group of pilots while at the same time protecting a secret that could cause irreparable damage to not only Alphabet Squadron, but to the entire New Republic. Meanwhile, a familiar face with a new name has returned to Shadow Wing, and his mission is quite clear: revenge. Check out the second installment in this action packed trilogy!
After their narrow victory over Shadow Wing, Alphabet Squadron is on the attack, hunting their adversaries within the Imperial Remnant. Shadow Wing is desperate for direction and leadership—and they find both in the iron will of Major Keize, their former commander and Yrica Quell's one-time mentor. As battle lines blur, Alphabet Squadron finds itself not only fighting their resurgent foes, but their leader's own deadly shadow.

Devastated and torn apart by the events in Shadow Fall, Alphabet Squadron attempts to piece together their next steps forward in a galaxy on the edge of complete destruction. Soran Keize, the former leader of Shadow Wing, long thought dead, has returned to the ruthless TIE squadron making them stronger and more dangerous than ever. With our heroes at their absolute worst, they must pull together to overcome their renewed rivals at their very best. The only question lies in what it will cost. Alexander Freed’s Victory’s Price is the epic conclusion to the Alphabet Squadron trilogy we have long waited for. Known for mixing the right amount of airborne conflict, character development, and surprising twists, Freed is sure to leave everyone talking with this one!
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?
