A Rogue One Novel (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel)
by James Luceno (2016)


A prequel novel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the upcoming film set before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, that reveals the untold story of the rebel effort to steal the plans to the Death Star.


This is a very workman like book. It ticks all the boxes of characters and settings necessary for the new film. The problem is, that’s all. It’s not inspiring, adventurous or engaging. There are too many characters, too many plot threads. It was probably rushed out for the movie. So an OK book but probably not necessary to read before the new film.
