Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

by

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Go beyond the film with a novelization featuring new scenes and expanded material.

As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has learned of a sinister Imperial plot to bring entire worlds to their knees. Deep in Empire-dominated space, a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate . . . and a threat that may be too great to overcome.

If the worlds at the Empire's mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire's military; Chirrut Imwe, a blind holy man and his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters. In their hands rests the new hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion victory--if only they can capture the plans to the Empire's new weapon.

But even as they race toward their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate enemy--a monstrous world unto itself--darkens the skies. Waiting to herald the Empire's brutal reign with a burst of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.

Praise for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

"One of the best movie adaptations yet."--Cinelinx

"Rogue One bridged characters and elements of the prequels and original Star Wars trilogy in a visually stunning ride, but there are even more rich details hiding in the film's novelization, [which] reveals and expands with inner monologues and character insights, political knots, and nuance." --The Daily Dot

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story novelization deepens a tale of hope. . . . [Jyn Erso] proves to be even more fascinating here than she was in the movie."--New York Daily News

    A year ago I wrote an absolutely scathing review of the Star Wars the Force Awakens novelisation. I hated the thing; it was poor, and it felt like a tepid plot summary. It captured nothing of the movi...

    Solid story, great characters! BEYOND A MERE NOVELIZATION …why follow Jyn? Because she shines. Usually when you read a novelization, the reading experience while entertained, since it’s a nove...

    I got the movie for my birthday and loved it so much. I found out there was a novelization and immediately bought it as my own birthday present. I'm so glad I did, it was so freaking good. It was like...

    Kada uzmete ovu knjigu dobijate tačno ono što ste i očekivali: prepričan film. Ni manje ni više što je po meni velika propuštena prilika da se ova priča proširi i da se gomila rupa fino popun...

    “Relax, Captain,” Chirrut answered. “We’ve been in worse cages than this one.”“Yeah? Well, this is a first for me.”“There is more than one sort of prison, Captain,” Chirrut said. “...

    If you've read any reviews of this book, what I'm about to say is probably something you've heard before: This is one of the best film novelizations I've ever read, if not the best. Oy, that sounds re...

    HONESTLY this book was not only a great Star Wars book (probably one of the best I have read?), but also something I would recommend as a book-book. Let's be real here, the EU has set the bar pretty l...

    In the instant before he'd risen from the bunker, he'd questioned his own wisdom: How might he separate the will of the Force from his will, his ego, demanding action where action was unneeded? But th...

    I enjoyed this. All the problems I have with this story centre around idiot decisions the screenwriters made. Problems: 1) Transforming Jyn's mother, Lyra, from an intelligent, woman in "Rogue One: Ca...
