about

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 .
E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she's learned anything, it's that things turn out weird sometimes, and there's not a lot you can do about it. She is the author of the acclaimed novelsA Thousand NightsandExit, Pursued by a Bearas well as the forthcomingSpindle. You can follow Kate...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bridge This book is a good bridge between the Ahsoka seen in Clone Wars and the Ahsoka seen in Rebels, and if that's what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed. I believe it was written for a young adult audience more so than novels published under Del Ray, and if you're an adult like myself, you'll probably feel that a bit when reading it. There is still a decent story though and some good character development for Ahsoka even if the other characters feel a bit flat. I would give it 3 or 4 out of 5 for myself, but I suspect it's a definite 5/5 for the target audience of younger Star Wars readers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read for Ahsoka fans! Admittedly I listened to the audiobook for this one so technically I didn't "read" it, however it was a very enjoyable story. Ashley Eckstein reads the audiobook, and I found that really added to the experience. 'Ahsoka' sets things up for Rebels and explains some minor details regarding what she's been up to, how she knows certain people and so on. It did feel like there was a lot of fluff at times (like thinking about Obi-wan and Anakin and what they would all be doing in that exact same situation), but it makes sense in the context of her character. There is also a brief bit from Obi-wan's POV is probably similar to the book Kenobi by John Jackson Miller if you are into that. This book is an awesome read for Fans of the Clone Wars, Rebels, and Ahsoka's character in general. It is a feel-good book with a strong female protagonist. Ahsoka has always been a powerful character for girls and this book shows it by having her care for others, and show tremendous leadership skills. She's is a strong female lead in this book, and she shows us all what a female 'jedi' (although technically not a true jedi anymore) can do in a galaxy far far away. This book is a must read for any Ahsoka fan, and (if you can get your hands on it) I recommend listening to the audiobook as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun to read Even though it's labeled as a "young adult" novel, its a really fun read. I loved Ahsoka in the CW and was pumped when she showed up in Rebels (spoile to anyone who didn't know sorry). This filled the gap nicely. However I'm left wanting more. The time of the book is just before the new TV show Rebels. There is still a bit of time from the end of CW to Rebels. It was still a great read. I can't wait until my kids are a bit older to read this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid read for fans of the character. It fills in a gap in the character's timeline. Enjoyable enough but not essential reading for more casual fans. Fans of Ahsoka will want to pick this up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! A must read for Ahsoka fans! For anyone that is a fan of the Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels, this is a must read. Johnston starts to tell the story of what happens to Ahsoka between Order 66 and the next time we see her in Rebels. This book is marked as a young adult book, but definitely crosses any age barriers. Both my nine year and myself read it in one sitting. An amazing book, hopefully there will be more to come

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I read it all in one sitting Ahsoka has a special place in my heart and is my favourite character in The Clone Wars. So when I heard this book was coming out I preordered it and when I got the call from the bookstore I went home and read it. I was definitely not disappointed. This is definitely my favourite Star Wars novel. Not only did I love Ahsoka, but I loved the original characters Johnson created. This is a book that tells what happened to Ahsoka after Order 66 and how she came to be a part of the Rebellion. If you are an Ahsoka fan and love The Clone Wars tv show, you will definitely not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Must Read for Ahsoka and Clone Wars Fans! EK Johnston writes a fantastic tale of Ahsoka set between the end of The Clone Wars and her reappearance in Rebels. The story is compelling and plays out like a multi-episode story arc from the animated series. After the issuance of Order 66 Ahsoka, like many other Jedi survivors, goes into hiding in the Outer Rim. But when the Empire show up on the planet she's been calling home, Ahsoka must decide if she is going to run, or stand her ground at the risk of exposing herself. This book is listed as a young adult novel, but doesn't read like one and is quite accessible. The characters are fun, and this is the Ahsoka I eventually grew to love in the Clone Wars. If you're a fan of Ahsoka as a character, or the Clone Wars animated series, than I think you would enjoy this novel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another excellent Star Wars novel! I bought this book chiefly because I like Star Wars generally and know that E.K. Johnston is an excellent writer, rather than because I know or care that much about Ahsoka in particular. (It's not that I dislike her, I hasten to add; it's just that I haven't been able to get through more than one episode of Clone Wars and have yet to watch any of Rebels either, so this book is really my first exposure to Ahsoka as a character.) For that reason, I can't say whether E.K. Johnston captures Ahsoka's character accurately or not (though knowing what a huge Star Wars fan she is and how much she loves Ahsoka, not to mention all the consultation with the Lucasfilm Story Group that went into this novel, I'm about 99.9% certain that she does). But I can say that Ahsoka is a compelling, multifaceted character: smart, determined, principled, heroic, and yet at the same time grappling with a very relatable uncertainty, disillusionment, and a reluctance to trust borne of her past experiences (which I would doubtless have appreciated much better if I'd watched any of CW, but Johnston includes brief flashbacks and reminiscences that fill in the blanks nicely). The narrative starts quietly and at a measured pace, laying the foundation for the conflicts and challenges to come. But once the action starts, it keeps ramping up, with high stakes and big risks for everyone involved. There's enough explosions, firefights, smuggling and sabotage to keep traditional Star Wars fans happy, but also a thoughtful side to the book as Ahsoka makes new friends and allies and decides whether to trust them with her secrets, while struggling to find her new role and identity in a galaxy ruled by the Empire. This book is also stuffed brim-full of interesting, distinct, dynamic girl characters. Not to say there aren't plenty of male characters too, both good and villainous, but Ahsoka's primary contacts and relationships are with other girls and women of varying ages, and I found that both realistic and refreshing. Also, Ahsoka is either oblivious to or uninterested in any kind of romantic or sexual relationship -- she's got much bigger concerns on her mind -- so that makes the book an ace-friendly read as well. The point of all this is that AHSOKA is very good indeed and I think many Star Wars fans will love it. It's worth a read even if you've never met the main character before -- and if you're already an Ahsoka fan, even more so.
