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....

The book does a great job of explaining events between the shows The Clone Wars and Rebels. It covers how The Rebel Alliance began to form and how Ahsoka becomes a Rebel. Other well known characters like Bail Organa and R2D2 were also involved. It shows how In order to survive the Jedi purge she had to be smart, using her mind powers instead of physical. It could have been longer to give new characters more of a story. Im hoping for a sequel.

I really enjoyed this audiobook, narrated by the actor who voices her in the seeies. I‘m only partly through season 2 of the clone wars, so I don‘t know some of the history behind this, but it didn‘t stop me from getting involved. I like Ahsoka a lot and this book gave me more of an insight into her character, but I also really enjoyed meeting Beil Organa and seeing the beginnings of the rebellion. And Leia as a toddler 😍😭 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

I listened to this today. It was great. I‘m loving the Star Wars books so, so much. They help fill in some of the backstories and make the Galaxy far, far away so much richer.

My copy of #Ahsoka. It‘s signed by the voice of Ahsoka, Ashley Eckstein, and the writer, ekjohnston. It‘s about #AhsokaTano after The Clone Wars but before Star Wars Rebels. I wish I could say I met them but I purchased the book secondhand.

Recently watched Clone Wars and fell in love with Ahsoka. This was my first Star Wars novel, and I loved it. Can‘t wait to read more!

Finished this audiobook today, and it was another gem from the new canon. Telling the story of this former Padawan's journey between the Clone Wars and Rebels (animated series that I admittedly haven't watched), we watch Ahsoka find a place to lay low, hiding from the Empire that is hunting her down. She finds a place amongst the locals, and soon her desire to stay hidden is tested as the Empire comes knocking. I really enjoyed the narration, 👇

callielafleur But the speed of the audio was remarkably slow- I had to speed it up to make it tolerable, which I almost never do. Other than that, I really enjoyed the characters and the story. #starwarsreadalong #starwarsbuddyread 10mo
InLibrisVeritas I had to speed up the audio as well. I love the narrator and she voices the character in the shows, but it did move slow. 10mo
DivaDiane I loved Ahsoka the book and have a great love for her character throughout the animated series‘. You should watch Rebels. It‘s really great! There are plenty of mind-blowing moments there. 9mo
PSreads73 I started the book last night. So far I love it. I recently finished The Clone Wars but they‘re supposed to do a 7th season. Probably when the Disney streaming service starts. I also haven‘t seen Rebels but am going to buy the seasons soon. 4w

I really enjoyed this one! While it wasn‘t my favorite I loved seeing old characters in a setting and time we didn‘t see in the movies. I also didn‘t know Ahsoka‘s character until now and enjoyed getting to know her. I felt a bit like it wasn‘t 100% clear why she was so invested in Ryedah (sp), but I bought into it. I liked the setting of the planet and it felt very real in Johnston‘s descriptions. #starwarsbuddyread

InLibrisVeritas I'm glad you enjoyed this one too! I really hope we get to see more of her in the future. 10mo

I have been listening to this since I woke up and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I was hoping for a bit more on her missing years than what is in here, so I am hoping this second half covers some of that.

I really enjoyed this peak into Ahsoka‘s world filling in from the fall of the Jedi and her new role in the rebellion. I also loved the tiny peeks into R2, Bail, and even Ben‘s transitions into this new world order. Now if only they‘d make an Ahsoka movie and carry over this great character into the films.

Alicia I enjoyed it too!! I also really liked seeing the characters we know at different times. And tiny Leia! 10mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Alicia Right! So cute! And I love that Bail knew from the start that she‘d be a prodigy and might have learned to read while his back was turned! So great! 10mo

In the end I loved this book. In the end? Well, it started slow, but I still loved it then too. A YA novel, it went really quickly, which was something I really needed right now. I‘m really glad we got to see how Ahsoka finds her place and purpose in a post-Jedi, Empire galaxy. Now I want MORE!

Trying to encourage my non-reader little cousins by baiting them with a character they love from TV. Hoping Star Wars will be their gateway book. Think it'll work?

mg42 @Skyrimir I think it's going to work! First thing one of them said, "I'm going to do my next book report on this". It's above the reading level of their typical school books, so I'm thinking they'll rise up to the challenge. What did your brother end up reading next? 2y
mg42 @GrilledCheeseSamurai awesome. They absolutely love lightsaber lore, so I was glad I could pump them up for it by telling them that! 2y
Skyrimir I can‘t remember exactly what he read, he just made his way through every series he could find! I remember he liked the New Jedi Order and there was one that was about the x-wing pilots. After he read his way through Star Wars he read the Robotech books. Sadly, I think after Disney bought the franchise I think they declared a lot of the old books to not be part of the official canon anymore. I don‘t know if your reader would care or not! 2y
DivaDiane It might! It‘s a good follow on if they‘ve watched the Clone Wars in its entirety. Otherwise they may not know the motivations. They also need to know about Order 66. 1y

This YA (I can never figure out how they determine when a book is "YA," and it kind of makes me feel weird to be a 40 year old woman reading YA...but whatevs) Star Wars novel delivered exactly what I had been hoping for when I first heard about it; adventure, witty commentary, and a strong heroine. It also offers a glimpse at the birth of the Rebellion and Bail's role in it.

Loved this. Slow start, but once Ahsoka found her resolve, everything picked up. I feel that it requires a little bit of background knowledge, though, if only a brief foray into Wookiepedia to learn about past events if someone isn't familiar. Great action, clever twist, good, but foreboding ending. All I want in a Star Wars book.
