io9 have revealed the exclusive first excerpt and the cover for the upcoming Del Rey novel, Alphabet Squadron: Shadow Fall, the second book in the Alphabet Squadron trilogy.
Alexander Freed’s trilogy tells the story of a squadron of pilots brought together by New Republic Intelligence who, operating under General Hera Syndulla, go after the Imperial Navy’s 204th fighter wing: Shadow Wing, pilot Yrica Quell’s former unit.
Take a look at Shadow Fall’s cover, highlighting music-loving bomber pilot Chass na Chadic below:
Shadow Fall will indeed catch us up on what General Syndulla and her unruly pilots in Alphabet Squadron are up to in their quest to stamp out the Imperial Remnant. But as the title implies, we’ll also be diving even deeper into the machinations of what Shadow Wing themselves are like. Now lead by Major Soran Keize—Yrica’s former mentor when she was part of the 204th—we’ll not just see their plans to go after the New Republic’s fledgling starfighter forces, but how what’s left of one of the Empire’s most elite fighter divisions is coping in a galaxy where their Empire has exploded right before their eyes.
