It's been months since Luke's life was threatened by Rezi Soresh. But that doesn't mean he's safe.
Soresh is a patient man, and he's willing to wait for the right moment. He has more reasons than ever: In the wake of his last attempt to get rid of the Rebellion's top pilot, Soresh was accused of being a traitor and relieved of his command. Humiliated and alone, he's retreated to a quiet corner of the galaxy, evading any Imperial troops that would arrest him. And now, he has a plan to strike back at every one of his enemies -- starting with Luke Skywalker.

This story occurs approximately just after the Battle of Yavin.

Review by Bones, UK, 2011:

"The Rebel Force series concludes with Uprising, which sees the original trilogy characters pursuing the man responsible for sending X-7 against them: Imperial Commander Rezi Soresh.
"This book does an admirable job of tying up many of the loose ends from the previous books, as well as from previous series. Several characters reach their respective resolutions, some of which are satisfying, others bittersweet. The character of Ferus Olin was, I felt, particularly nicely handled.
"The down-side, however, is that the series was unable to live up to its earlier instalments. It started very strongly, then dwindled due, in part, to the introduction of characters and scenarios that I was rather unimpressed with, not least of which being Lune Divinian. Whilst Uprising is not as poor an entry as its immediate predecessors, it certainly isn't memorable, which, regrettably, is something that could be said of the entire series. Partly due to the chronological location of the storyline, everything is self-contained and as such has little impact.
"Nowhere near as good as Jedi Quest and lacking the overall appeal of other young reader series (for example, Jedi Apprentice), Rebel Force does not live up to its potential."

Rating: 2.5 / 5
