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?"--Provided by publisher.… (mais)

--------------

From the back cover: When Jyn Erso is 8 years old, her mother is 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 to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own daughter and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel. 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 silling 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 whom she can really trust.

I liked this book quite well. I didn't love Rogue One the way many do (though the ending was just superb and it was unexpected) nor did I love Catalyst, the story of the Ersos until taken by the Empire. It took me awhile to pick up this book, but I was so glad I did. About two thirds of it covers her time with Saw, with the last third covering the time after they were separated until reunited. I came to appreciate both their characters more. Furthermore,it occurs to me that Jyn is like Harry Potter in book 5 -- it would be utterly unrealistic if he were happy or more likable. Jyn has been repeatedly and consistently traumatized. No, she's not super fun to be around. That made it more realistic. The love Saw has for her is apparent, and he does the best job he can being a surrogate father while leading a rebel cell.

Some passages I liked:

"I will never understand why the rebellion is so worried about labels" Saw continued. "Fear controls the masses. The Empire controls fear. If we tapped into that - if we used the same tactics the Empire does and brought about the same kind of fear, we'd control the people and give them the peace you are so anxious to have."

"If you're alone, you don't care as much. what happens to you. There's a sort of fearlessness in being alone. But when you start to love someone else...it's ironic."
"What is?"
"You find out that you have so much more to fight for, but it becomes that much more dangerous to fight at all"

"I don't want to ever do that again" the pilot said in a soft voice.
"Do what?":
"Abandon everyone else just so I can live. We could have sved someone other than ourselves."
Guilt enshrouded the pilot. It sank into his skin, it pulled at his bones. ( )

The time spent with Saw Gerrera is pretty engaging, but afterwards the book seems to lose momentum. The remaining plot is pretty episodic. ( )

For fans of Rogue One this tells the story of Jyn Erso before she saved millions and sacrificed herself for the greater good. Oh and Rebecca Soler is an A+ narrator, I just didn’t like the sound effects if I’m being honest they distracted a little too much.

Jyn Erso was a young orphaned girl thrust into the care of Saw Gerrera. He trained her and taught her how to defend herself eventually using her skills with technology on some missions. Before severing their relationship they had built a strong friendship and kinship which was destroyed by mistrust and lies. Jyn took those skills and became a wanderer looking for the next place to hide in and survive. She knew early on that if anyone who knew she was the daughter of Galen Erso it would make her an instant enemy and target of many.

Rebel Rising explores Jyn’s experiences in adolescence and early adulthood with creating a family of her own in different places, more than one tragic loss, discovering her will to live and why she was so cold and distant when she finally shows up as the Rogue One.

I’m only a casual Star Wars fan. I’ve watched all the movies except for episode 7 and 8 and I watched The Clone Wars show and movie (though I can’t remember if it was called a movie or if it was just a really long into to the show). So I know some references to other parts of the story flew right over my head. It was just really interesting to read about Jyn’s life and adventures before she was thrown in jail and tortured with hard labor for years.

I’m just glad knowing that even if she and Cassian died never able to admit their feelings for each other, Jyn Erso died knowing what it means to be in love and to be loved right back. And yes I'm aware she and Cassian aren't technically canon but let me have my moment. ( )

In Star Wars: Rebel Rising, Beth Revis explores the history of Jyn Erso from the time Saw Gerrera picked her up on Lah’mu following the death of her mother through the Rebel Alliance's rescue of her at the Imperial Labor Camp on Wobani. Much like Claudia Gray's Lost Stars, Revis demonstrates the utility of a YA novel in exploring larger themes of love and loss, duty and sacrifice in a manner that readers of all ages can relate to. Revis' exploration of Jyn's history helps explain her cynicism at the beginning of Rogue One and her hesitancy around Saw. While the film provides enough details that the audience can fill them in with their imagination, Revis' story lives up to that imagining. Along the way, she includes references to other elements of the Star Wars galaxy, including the Tion Hegemony (pg. 151), Ahsoka Tano's identity of Fulcrum from Star Wars Rebels (pg. 270), and Takodana from The Force Awakens (pg. 370). Longtime fans and new fans alike will delight in this story. ( )
