Rogue One by Alexander Freed
I have recently finished reading the exciting novelization of Rogue One by Alexander Freed. It features An Imperial technician named Galen Erso who flees the evil Empire with his family Jyn and Lyra to the the planet Lahmu. However the Empire eventually catch up with him and take him prisoner and his daughter Jyn is sent to Wobani Labour Camp by the Empire. However She is rescued by Guerrilla leader and Rebel extremist Saw Gerrera who teaches her to become a fighter with his militia as well as a smuggler and criminal. However Jyn is abandoned by Gerrera but is rescued by Ruescott Melshi and taken to the rebel base where she meets Mon Mothma and Cassian Andor.
Meanwhile an Imperial Pilot Defector named Bodhi Rook is being held by Saw Gerrera at the holy city of Jedha having been sent by Galen Erso to warn the rebels that the Empire is constructing a new super weapon of unimaginable power which has been given the name Death Star and is capable of destroying whole planets.
So The Rebels send Jyn Erso and rebel pilot Cassian Andor to Jedha where they encounter two Mystic Warriors Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus battling the Imperial Invaders. They also encounter Saw Gerrera who is also waging his own guerrilla warfare on the Empire and are imprisoned in his secret base on Jedha. However They are unexpectedly freed when unbeknownst to them, the Empire led by Grand Moff Tarkin and Scientist Orson Krennic decide to demonstrate the Death Star’s destructive capacity on Jedha and Cassian, Jyn, Bodhi Rook, Chirrut Imwe and Baze only just manage to escape the subsequent carnage.
They are then sent to an Imperial Research Facility on the windswept, inhospitable planet Eadu on a mission to find and extract Galen Erso, however unbeknownst to Jyn, Cassian is secretly given orders by the rebels to assassinate Galen Erso instead. Then the rest of the rebels arrive and it all kicks off. Whilst on Eadu Jyn, Cassian, Bodhi Rook, Chirut Imwe and Baze Malbus discover that the technical blueprints for the Empire’s superweapon are being stored in another Imperial Facility on the planet Scarif so they set off on an unsanctioned and very dangerous mission to recover them…
