Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

When Jyn Erso joined the ranks of the Rebellion in an attempt to free her father from the Empire's grasp, she brought along a remarkable set of skills. These abilities allowed her to complete the most crucial mission of her life in service of the Rebels, but where did she acquire those techniques in the first place?

Enter Rebel Rising. Beth Revis takes us into the depths of Gerrera's Partisans as a young Jyn Erso learns how to fight, how to survive, and perhaps most importantly...how to know who to trust. Loyalty and betrayal intermingle marvelously in this Young Adult foray into the Erso Family Canon.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

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.

Staff Comments

Rebel Rising was a solid novel that gave me a better appreciation for the character of Jyn Erso. Basically, it filled in the gap in her story between when Saw found her on Lah'mu and when she was rescued from prison by the Rebels in Rogue One. Despite being written for "young adults," it fully embraced some very gruesome parts of Jyn's life because, well, her life was quite gruesome at times. It's gritty. It's compelling. It's a good story. Fans of Jyn will most certainly want to give it a shot.

Jyn Erso was a powerful role model for many young girls during the hype of Rogue One’s release. Her strong, independent nature is carefully crafted in Rebel Rising. The novel takes place between the time that Saw saves her from her hiding spot on Lah’mu all the way up to Rogue One. Her initial fear, confusion, acceptance, and will to survive shape her into the character we see on screen.

This Clone Wars era novel slipped under my radar for quite a while. Maybe because the title sounds like a romance novel... But by the time I finally got around to reading this, I was incredibly surprised! This is a gem of Star Wars Legends and gives us the rare spotlight on Yoda and Count Dooku. After having just read Dooku: Jedi Lost, this really scratched the itch that I had with my newfound interest in the character. This time, he’s trying to set a trap for Yoda under the guise of wanting to end the Clone Wars once and for all. Also, Ventress! On top of all of this, we get great insight and perspective we get on Yoda and a very close, personal story with Dooku as well. Dark Rendezvous great atmosphere and setting on the spooky planet of Vjun!
