This novel differs from most of the other books in the new canon. Rather than figuring on a single conflict or goal, the book traces Ashoka Tano's path as she tires to find a place in a post Order 66 galaxy. Early on the book can feel very aimless, but this is more a reflection of the character's state than of poor writing. As Ashoka wrestles with the moral and emotional issues that confront a former Force user we are invited to see what has become of the Galaxy under Imperial control and the realities of life for ordinary citizens. We are also provided insight into how I soak his experiences in the Clone Wars shape her thinking about relationships politics and obligation. Although this book is marketed as a young adult novel it is suitable for, and probably targeted towards, an adult audience. To be warned that this book, like most of the new Canon, does not have the dramatic lightsaber fights and elaborate Force related feats that you may have come to expect from the old extended universe. However when considered in context these omissions help ground the story.

A good book to start your Star Wars reading addiction. Action scenes were a bit ... lackluster, and the pacing a bit off, but overall, a good book. Something I will definitely read again.

Overall it turned out to be pretty good, it took a little longer to get going than i would have preferred. Enjoyed getting to know Ahsoka a little more in depth. Thought this was going to cover the events leading up to Rebels but turned out to be about her start in the empire era, look forward to future adventures.

Wonderfully entertaining story that shows a great deal of depth for a beloved character. I will say this feels more like the Ahsoka from Rebels than a continuation from her growth in Clone Wars. It's not bad by any means, just more family friendly/G rated than this story could have been. Spoiler ahead: I mean her running through and imperial base killing 0 people was far fetched. Don't get me wrong the villains did a good deal of killing, but the heroes did little to no kills. Was strange. Would love to see more of Ahsoka in other books. Not sure of the exact timeline but there should be some room for books between here and Rebels.

A good tale for a character that many enjoyed during the Clone Wars, and like the newer adventures of REBELS...the pieces fall together nicely.

Since the downfall of the Jedi from Clone Wars and the Movies, and with her appearance in Rebels, what had Ashoka been doing? She was a favorite character. This wonderful book brings her back to life, filling in the backstory of the hardship and self doubt Ashoka had to go through to find herself again. The author’s skill to bring Ahsoka’s witty personality and inner drive to life kept me glued to my iPad for hours. Everything makes sense within the pages, nothing’s out of character. This book deserves to be made into a Star Wars story movie. I’m looking forward to additional adventures.

Ashoka is a story that fills in the background of how the Rebellion has its birth after the massacre of the Jedi through Order 66. I hope that it will only be the first of several stories that explore the life and legacy of Ashoka Tano.

The tone and voice fit the character accurately for those who are already familiar with the Clone Wars and Rebels television programs. The insight provided about Ashoka's life answers fans questions and sits perfectly in the established sequence of Star Wars canon. After voluntarily leaving the Jedi Order in the Clone Wars series and reemerging years later in Rebels, the apocryphal story is a nice revisiting of a familiar and fan-beloved character.

Asohka being my favorite character from Clone Wars, this was desperately needed. Fills the gap between Clone Wars and Rebels nicely, but now I need more!

I like Ahsoka and want more stories about her. The story itself was not great, but I hope that was because it outlines the transition to the rebellion.

This is Welcome Addition to the Star Wars Novel. Ahsoka faked her own death after order 66, She had to leave her light sabers behind to do so.The end of the Jedi Order hit her hard, even though she'd already walked away from it. She suffered from an extreme case of survivor's guilt. Throughout the book she regains her self confidence. Learning when to conceal her Force Strength and when to use it. Palpaltine had made getting Crystal for New Light Sabers difficult, but she finds her way around that and builds a set of White Blades. This also has Bail Organa trying to organize a rebellion, while he's forced to play a "Good Senator". He and Ahsoka eventually meet and form an alliance. Ahsoka isn't actually a Jedi or a Padawan, but she retains her Clone Wars training and experience. Even without the Order, Obiwan, or Anakin she still does what she can to Fight for Justice, Protect Peace, and Honor the Force.

I really enjoyed the books. After watching the show Rebels and seeing Ashoka. I had often wonder what had happened to her and wonder how she would come back to the rebellion. This book did a nice job of telling Ashoka's story. I really hope in the future we continue to learn more about Ashoka and where she is indeed headed. I have read where some say the book starts off slow and lacks this or that. Perhaps it does or doesn't. I will leave that up to the reader. However I do know if your looking for a good book to enjoy due to your love of Star Wars, then you shall really enjoy this book. This is the book that helped me dive back into my love of reading. May the Force be with you.

It's a good read and we'll written, but I felt I didn't learn much new about one of my favorite characters. Foreshadowing was a little too predictable and there weren't many plot twists.
