Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

After the events of Order 66, survivors of the Jedi Purge must navigate the galaxy undetected. It's been a year since Ahsoka Tano watched the Galactic Republic fall, and she's leaving yet another planet to dodge Imperial suspicion and start over. Again. Something strange is happening, however, and she can't help but let her curiosity get her into serious trouble.

E.K. Johnston's young adult novel builds an important bridge between the Ahsoka we knew from The Clone Wars and the Fulcrum we meet in Star Wars Rebels. It's in this story that our hero must come to terms with her past and discover the role she is meant to play in her darkened galaxy's future.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, and before she re-appeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally, her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance?

Staff Comments

Since the premiere of the Clone Wars television series, Ahsoka has become one of the most beloved new characters in Star Wars. This book, which follows her adventures after the end of the Clone Wars, largely deals with her coping with the fallout from Order 66. It has a similar vibe to Kenobi by John Jackson Miller, but—in my humble opinion—falls far short of that mark. The first two thirds of the book certainly drag, but the read is worth it once you reach the final chapters. In particular, one event offers new insight into kaiber crystals.

- Charles Hankel

If you want to bridge the gap between Ahoska's journey at the end of The Clone Wars and the beginning of Star Wars: Rebels, this book was tailor made from you. Taking a page from the Legends classic, Kenobi, Ahsoka finds our favorite former Padawan hiding out on a farming planet where the shadow of the Empire is ever-increasing. E.K. Johnston pens Ahsoka's voice perfectly, and by the time you reach the final act of this novel, you'll be cheering in your seat.

- Eric Eilersen

Ahsoka is a must-read if you are a fan of the character. Once I finished watching The Clone Wars, I was eager for something to fill the void and this book heeded my call. It’s also a great gateway into Star Wars: Rebels.
