Catalyst: A Rogue One Story, while admittedly not my favorite, was still a good story. I can appreciate all the fine details it adds to the larger picture.
It’s probably my fault for picking this up directly after, Dark Disciple, which I absolutely loved!!!
This is a prequel novel to the Rogue One film.
Basically it follows Orson Krennic, part of Chancellor Palpatine’s Death Star Project, along with brilliant scientist, Galen Erso and his family.
This had a lot more technical details and political maneuverings than character work and drama, but as I said, it was still good.
I’m glad I read it as it provides a solid backdrop for the events of Rogue One, an immediate prequel to A New Hope; probably only necessary, or interesting, to hardcore fans.
