6: Catalyst by James Luceno – James Luceno is back! He really is one of the great authors of the Star Wars books. If you see his name just pick the book up. Here we get to see Jyn Erso’s journey from young adult along side Saw Gerrerra to her abandonment. Once again James does a magnificent job with his character development. It helps to put so much of the Jyn we get in Rogue One into context. This is a truly excellent book.
