Ok, this is one of my favorite books. If you have seen the movie… THEN YOU MUST READ THE BOOK!!!! (And if you haven’t seen the movie… I am very disappointed in you….)
This book is about Jyn Erso, the daughter of an Imperial scientist who has made the most dangerous weapon known to the galaxy… The Death Star. When a group of rebels break Jyn out of prison she must make the choice to risk it all to steal the plans for the weapon to save the galaxy or to keep on running from the past she wishes she wasn’t a part of…
This book is amazing! There is action, adventure, battles, fight scenes and a wonderful story about hope in a galaxy filled with terror.
Now unfortunately there is mild cursing in the book (which was not in the movie), but it is still a really good book. And it is a Rouge One book so (no spoilers) it will be a little (ok a lot) violent, but basically like the movie. (People blow up, get shot, die. Get violently murdered by Darth Vader… The normal Star Wars stuff.)
Over all, it is on my favorite shelf and I still love it, even with the flaws. (Just take a white gel pen and cross out all the curse words. It’s not ruining the book if you are taking out the bad.) If you are a Star Wars fan, you should read the book. -The Young Llama Reader.


  • It also is a movie


  • Mild cursing
  • Kind-of violent

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 Îmwe, 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.
