An exciting adventure about two of the brave heroes from the smash hit movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!

On the desert world of Jedha, in the Holy City, friends Baze and Chirrut used to be Guardians of the Whills, who looked after the Kyber Temple and the devoted pilgrims who worshipped there. Then the Empire came and took over the planet. The temple was destroyed and the people scattered. Now Baze and Chirrut do what they can to resist the Empire and protect the people of Jedha, but it never seems to be enough. Then a man named Saw Gerrera arrives, with a militia of his own and grand plans to take down the Empire. It seems like the perfect way for Baze and Chirrut to make a real difference and help the people of Jedha live better lives. But will it come at too great a cost?

from Star Wars Insider # 172:

The new novel will show how Baze and Chirrut cope and adapt after the Empire’s arrival on Jedha and the destruction of the Kyber Temple. At the start of Guardians of the Whills, Baze and Chirrut are doing what they can to protect the people pf Jedha and organize a resistance. But a new arrival – the radical revolutionary Saw Gerrera – tips the balance of power into uncertainty. Saw commands his own militia and has his sights set on overthrowing the Imperial rulers of Jedha and the galaxy at large.

Will such an alliance make a difference in freeing Jedha and its citizens? Or will Saw’s path to victory come at too great a cost?

New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis brings to life the early adventures and heartbreaks of the heroine of the smash hit movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents she is not completely alone—Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own, and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.

Jyn dedicates herself to the cause—and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw’s soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in…and who she can really trust.

from Star Wars Insider # 172:

Jyn Erso, aged eight, saw her mother gunned down by death troopers and her father forced into Imperial service. She found a new mentor in Saw Gerrera, a friend of her parents and an ongoing terror to the Empire.

Saw is willing to go to any lengths to hurt the Empire, and his environment of extremism becomes Jyn’s new home as she learns the tactics of armed revolution. But despite her devotion to the cause, Jyn learns that becoming one of Saw’s warriors requires risking life and limb, while raising troubling moral issues on how far is too far – even when your intentions are noble.

Contemplating whether she wants to spend her life as one of Saw’s soldiers, Jyn faces a shattering betrayal. In the aftermath, she must put her life back together, and determine what fate – or the Force – has in store for her future.

The reign of the Galactic Empire has reached the Outer Rim planet of Jelucan, where aristocratic Thane Kyrell and rural villager Ciena Ree bond over their love of flying. Enrolling at the Imperial Academy is nothing less than a dream come true for both of them. But Thane sours on the dream when he sees firsthand the horrific tactics the Empire uses to maintain its ironclad rule.

Bitter and disillusioned, he joins the fledgling Rebellion–putting Ciena in an unbearable position between her loyalty to the Empire and her love for the man she’s known since childhood.

Now on opposite sides of the war, will these friends turned foes ever find a way to be together, or will duty tear them–and the galaxy–apart?
