Audiobook Review: Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad by Christie Golden, Narrated by Janina Gavankar

As the official audiobook reviewer for Coffee With Kenobi, it is my job to stay informed and provide a thorough review of each audiobook as it is released. Battlefront II: Inferno Squad narrated by Janina Gavankar is no exception. She is the image and voice used to create the main character for Battlefront II. I just finished watching season four of the Sleepy Hollow television series and watched the extended interview of Gavankar provided by The Star Wars Show.

We as fans of The Saga, quite frequently have been asked to welcome new talent into our galaxy. As I understand it, the idea that Janina Gavankar was, not only chosen as the main character for the new Battlefront II video game but was also invited to read this audiobook was so encouraging to me. Not only is she talented, but she is a fan! She is expressing her fandom and ability with such grace. She has allowed her passion and enthusiasm for Star Wars to shine through her performance. Iden Versio is the newest edition to the Star Wars cast of thousands and she is cool!

Book Review: ‘Star Wars: Battlefront II: Inferno Squad’ by Christie Golden

This review of Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad contains very minor spoilers.

Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad by Christie Golden (Dark Disciple) is the latest media tie-in for the new canon. Inferno Squad is the precursor to the highly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront II video game, scheduled for release this fall. However, as with its predecessor Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company, Inferno Squad is something all fans can enjoy, whether they be gamers or not. It works perfectly well as a standalone novel.

As with previous releases, such as Lost Stars, Tarkin, and Rogue One: Catalyst, the events of Inferno Squad are seen primarily through Imperial eyes. For those who are enamored of the Empire, that’s a pleasing state. For those of us who are more Rebellion-minded, it presents challenges. How can you find a way to sympathize — or empathize — with the enemy? A few books into the new canon, and I’m still working that out. It does happen, though! And Inferno Squad is an excellent example of when it does.
