I was not disappointed. I loved this book. Jyn was a complicated character and a reluctant hero in the movie, and this book provides the much needed backstory into how she got to where she did and why she was the way she was. The characters in this book were well developed and the story pulls you in and doesn't let go until you regrettably have to turn the last page. Even then it stays with you for a time afterward. If you love Star Wars and loved Rogue One, this book is a must read!
It has great writing, I loved the motivations, the despair Jyn faces, the overwhelming presence of the Empire and the suffering it gives to the galactic population, but this is more like a tragedy, the sense of going from better to worse every time, and Jyn is powerless to help.
While it explains perfectly Jyn's (and Saw's) character, it ended being a very sad story, which connects perfectly with the beginning of Rogue One.
On a side note - why did Disney decide to create Jyn's story in the YA realm? I mean, Ahsoka worked as a YA novel because the character came from a cartoon targeted at the YA audience. But Jyn's character comes from the most mature Star Wars to date, so...IDK. Seems odd to me.
Also, I'm ready for the Star Wars novels to move on to something other than "Here's a Story about a Character", i.e. Tarkin, Ahsoka, Thrawn, Rebel Rising, Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel, etc. Time to start thinking bigger. Maybe now that the Aftermath trilogy is done, they will. Please.
