A New Dawn Review

Readers took their first step into a larger world with the new EU in "A New Dawn," the Rebels tie-in novel that tells the first meeting of Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus. In all the excitement I forgot to link the first book review I've ever done for Den of Geek.
Star Wars: A New Dawn is quite similar to Kenobi, John Jackson Miller’s award-winning previous Star Wars novel. Like Kenobi, it is an adventurous, detailed look into the galaxy far, far away. The book takes place primarily in one location (here, one sector) and devotes as much time to original characters as to the previously established ones. For those who want to read about how the heroes of the upcoming Star Wars: Rebels TV show started fighting the Empire, though, it’s not wholly satisfying, and some elegant observations rub shoulders with occasionally choppy prose.

  1. Hi, Megan! If you enjoyed Miller's A New Dawn, be sure to check out his older Legends works! I prefer his comics to his novels, but both are well-regarded in the fandom.
    I recommend reading the Knight Errant comics and the Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral graphic novel. They both have pretty neat female characters. :)
