Audiobook Review: Rebel Rising by Beth Revis, Narrated by Rebecca Soler

“One fighter with a sharp stick and nothing to lose can win the day!” is an absolute statement from Saw Gerrera passed down to his cadre of followers, including Jyn Erso. In the wake of other releases in recent weeks, the audiobook Rebel Rising  by Beth Revis was released this week, somewhat under the radar. To be honest, I did not even know this book was going to be released, but when I discovered it had been published, I went right to reading/listening. One thing is for sure, we know a lot more about the growing up years of Jyn due to the telling of this story.

The audiobook is shorter than your typical run time probably due to the fact that this is meant for a younger audience. The content, however, is far from safe and youthful. This book is pretty dark and covers the time between when Jyn Erso was picked up by Saw Gerrera and the moment she was rescued from the prison by the rebellion. The narrator, Rebecca Soler, was a great choice for this novel because of the fact that she is able to perform a great Jyn style voice. She has also narrated many books in this particular genre.
