Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Beth Revis brings to life the early adventures and heartbreaks of the heroine of the smash hit movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents, she is not completely alone - Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.
Jyn dedicates herself to the cause - and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw's soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in...and who she can really trust.

Going into this, I had high expectations. Catalyst and the Rogue One novelization were both excellent and enhanced the characters introduced in the film. I thought Rebel Rising would be similar in delving deeper into Jyn. Unfortunately, the Jyn of this novel is impossible to reconcile with the Jyn of Rogue One.

In the film and novelization, we were introduced to a fierce but damaged young woman who was raised as a child soldier by an extreemist. That’s not who we get here. This girl is not a child soldier. Though Saw raised her and trained her to fight, he kept her comparatively safe and distant from most of his missions. She never kills anyone not does she develop the moral ambiguity that made Rogue One great. Her contribution to the team is forgery. While that is essential, that shouldn’t have been her sole job on his team. This is a girl he referred to as his best soldier. This novel doesn’t show that.

Everything that happens after Saw leaves Jyn is dull and sloppy. Nothing happens that isn’t expected. The only surprise was the horrible way the book tried to overlap with Rogue One in the end. This ending contradicted everything from Jyn’s introduction in the film to her offer from the Rebel Alliance. That makes this book seem non-canon.

Given the quality of the previous canon novels, I’m surprised by how poorly done Rebel Rising is. Its as though no one edited it before publishing.

Good but not?

I really expected more after the movie. This was too simple, too easy. The story craved more action, more hate from Jyn. The performance was nothing special.
