Before Kanan and Hera became perpetually exasperated space parents to their motley crew of rebels they were a brawling drunken ex padawan and a rebel spy looking for possible recruits to the cause This is a fun look at how Kanan and Hera met and it reads a lot like an extended version of Rebels It bogs down in a few places but is especially tense and fun at the end

As part of my uest to read The Rise of the Empire in order I ended up getting the chance reread the first novel that is officially considered part of the Star Wars canon John Jackson Miller’s A New Dawn Normally when I update reviews I would consider keeping the old review if my opinions changed significantly enough However I don’t need to do that with A New Dawn because my opinion remains largely the same I love this book Before Claudia Grey came along with her phenomenal Star Wars debut Lost Stars this was my favorite star wars novel that was part of Lucasfilm’s official canon This is a prime example of how to do a Star Wars spinoff novel Many fans give this distinction to Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire and while I wholeheartedly agree with them that it is a great book and a groundbreaking classic for the Star Wars franchise A New Dawn had a much harder taskHeir to the Empire had the advantage of being new and have a similar sense of discovery and tension to the movies when it came out in 1991 Before the release of this book there was a relative lack of Star Wars material outside the Original Trilogy Also it actually continued the story after the films so we didn’t know what would happen to Luke Skywalker Han Solo Princess Leia or our other favorite classic characters from the Original Trilogy A New Dawn had two key disadvantages At the time of the book’s release many Star Wars Stories outside the main saga movies existed so it didn't have the novelty of Heir to the Empire Some fans actually consider works such as Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy which included Heir to the Empire Bioware’s Knights of the Old Republic RPG video games andor either of the animated TV shows based around the Clone Wars to be even better than the movies It was also the first book to be released after Lucasfilm rebooted the expanded universe rendering everything outside Episodes I VI and the CGI animated TV series Star Wars The Clone Wars non canon Some particularly despicable fans actively wanted to see A New Dawn fail While it never reached the success of the Thrawn Trilogy it hasn’t stopped the release of the new novels and the book did reach the New York Times Bestseller listSecond A New Dawn simply doesn’t have the same narrative advantage that Heir to the Empire did when it was released in that we knew how it would end Kanan and Hera were not going to get killed or crippled because the book takes place before Star Wars Rebels where the two characters were alive and well and already working together A friend of mine on this site Sam uixote who prolifically reviews comic books points out a similar criticism to many new Star Wars comics that are released that they don’t need to exist The same sentiment can be applied to A New Dawn However while Sam's point is valid I can't hold that against this novel or any of the new books comics TV series video games or spinoff films that contain stories because I go into these materials knowing just that None of them need to exist and they are all made simply for lucasfilm to scrape our pockets clean of our hard earned cash I can exclusively watch the Original Trilogy the Force Awakens soon to be Episodes VIII and IX even the preuels and get a basic understanding of the main plot points and character motivations Even if these other materials present interesting lore and backstories that add to the star wars universe or introduce memorable stories and characters the main saga films were good or bad movies and still are good or bad movies So with that out of the way now lets actually get into the book I already said I love it so why is thatTHE STORY Kanan Jarrus formerly the jedi padawan Caleb Dume has survived order 66 and is now living as a scoundrel constantly moving between planets jobs and people to avoid detection by the Empire Things uickly change while he is working miner on the planet Gorse collecting thorillide from it’s moon Cynda Kanan decides to pack his belongings and le
