Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
New York Times bestselling 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 becomea 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.

Set in the gap between the opening sequences of Rogue One, and the main bulk of the movie, Rebel Rising tells the story of how Jyn Erso goes from scared little girl to Rebel. Even though it is written for young adults, any fan of Star Wars should enjoy the book. I know I did. This is recommended reading for any Star Wars fan. I only hope we get a similar treatment for Rey once a little more of her story is revealed in Ep. VIII.
MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD
We know from the movie that Jyn is rescued by Saw Gerrera and raised by him for many years before she is imprisoned by the Empire. We know she is a fighter.
Saw rescues her from her cave, and takes her to his secret base. As a freedom fighter, the Empire says terrorist, Saw is all business. Food as nourishment only. Fighting practice. Code breaking. Falsifying papers. Missions. Saw raises Jyn as his own, and teaches her what she needs to know. Many rebels come and go, varying with the mission. We see some of the brutality that Saw's band is capable of, and what has caused him to not be part of the main Rebel Alliance. We also see when Saw abandons Jyn in the middle of a battle with a blaster and a knife. Jyn manages to find people to take her in, always bringing the Empire along in her wake.
The writing is fine - not spectacular, but nothing wrong with it. The prose will neither move you nor distract you. I doubt if many people are reading a Star Wars book for the quality of the prose, so this probably doesn't matter much.
The plot is (sigh) fine. If you really want to know the life story of Jyn Erso, this is the book for you. But, frankly, the life story of Jyn Erso just isn't that interesting. She was a great character in Rogue One. But that is her story. That movie tells of her shining moment, when what she does matters and affects the galaxy. The rest of her life, not so much. I would much rather read about Saw, or Cassian and K-2SO, or Chirrut and Baze. They all seemed to have more interesting things in their backgrounds than just what they do in Rogue One, so a book that covered it would be worthwhile (the comics are going to cover most of these).
So, ultimately, I think that you need to be a big Star Wars fan to even bother with the book, and a huge Jyn Erso fan to truly enjoy it. Again, it isn't bad - the book is just fine, and if you read a lot, then sure, throw this in. But if you don't read all that many books, skip this one and read Catalyst for a Rogue One fix, or Ahsoka, Thrawn, Lost Stars, or Bloodline for a great book.
This is the book that fills in those gaps. It covers Jyn's exploits from the time Saw rescues her from her hiding spot on the Erso's farm to the time that rebels bust her out of an Imperial prison transport. We find that Jyn's life has been dark, brutal, and filled with crushing betryals and heartbreak. It helps to explain why her character doesn't have a particularly sunny disposition in the movie. It does add to her character and would be worth a read for anyone who watched the movie and found themselves wanting to know more about her.
