Coming out a month before the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, James Luceno’s Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel will attempt to set the stage for the upcoming film as it focuses on the two men behind the creation of the galaxy’s most fearsome weapon ever conceived, Galen Erso and Orson Krennic. Dating back to the Clone Wars, the book will detail the relationship between these two men and will also give readers a glimpse at Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as a child. USA Today has just released an excerpt from the novel (due for release Nov. 15th). — USA Today
