[] Thrawn
Trade Paperback Novel by Timothy Zahn
Arrow Books ( UK )

This story begins approximately 12 years before Episode IV: A New Hope:
After Thrawn is rescued from exile by Imperial soldiers, his deadly ingenuity and keen tactical abilities swiftly capture the attention of Emperor Palpatine. And just as quickly, Thrawn proves to be as indispensable to the Empire as he is ambitious; as devoted as its most loyal servant, Darth Vader; and a brilliant warrior never to be underestimated. On missions to rout smugglers, snare spies, and defeat pirates, he triumphs time and again—even as his renegade methods infuriate superiors while inspiring ever greater admiration from the Empire. As one promotion follows another in his rapid ascension to greater power, he schools his trusted aide, Ensign Eli Vanto, in the arts of combat and leadership, and the secrets of claiming victory. But even though Thrawn dominates the battlefield, he has much to learn in the arena of politics where ruthless administrator Arihnda Pryce holds the power to be a potent ally or a brutal enemy...more

[Rebel Rising] [] Rebel Rising
By Beth Revis
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

While Catalyst is the beginning of the story, Rebel Rising is a direct sequel, refocusing from Galen Erso to his daughter and her substitute parent Saw. But we do not get a typical starwarsy training montage, but a really good look at how bad her situation became after Saw pulled her out that cave. After all we are talking about Saw Gerrera, someone, who was so hardcore, the Rebel alliance did not want to work with him. The same Alliance, that had no problems with Cassians way of handling things.
We get to see Saw through Jyn’s eyes, and together with her we first see him as a savior, then an awkward father figure, mentor, then growingly paranoid protector until finally we arrive at the unstable extremist we have seen in ROGUE ONE. Saw lost his sister a long time ago, then he lost his homeworld, his heart belonged to Jyn which fed his paranoia, but finally he sacrificed more and more of himself, of his soul and of his body for THE cause. Once he had only his own life left to sacrifice, he started sacrificing others. This is a pretty bleak version of Star Wars, perfectly in line with ROGUE ONE...

[Rogue One] [] Rogue One
By Alexander Freed
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

Freed does not disappoint. The parts we know from the movies are more than competently described, but Freed does not just show us the movie written in words, but brings us the emotions and motivations of all characters closer. There is lots of insight and surprisingly lot of connective tissue with CATALYST and REBEL RISING (in memories and flashbacks which are not in the film)...read full review
