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 ...more

E.K. Johnston I mean, I have a pretty obvious bias, but Amazon says 8+, and I agree. There's canon-level violence, but no other "mature content" besides that.

A good and nice story. I get the feeling this was aimed at younger readers. The story is well researched and thought out, it does fill in a few blanks on how and why Ahsoka became Fulcrum. This is a more of a companion book to the Rebels series, I would recommend reading this before watching season 2 of the series, simple as I am hoping a lot of the questions or blanks I have will be filled in there.

This is setting up the background to season 1 of Rebels. I am glad a couple of the side

I would probably sell my soul for the Clone Wars series. Yes, it's low-budget and silly at times, but I love it to bits. Honestly there was a time where if anyone mentioned Rex and Order 66 I would instantly tear up. Trust me when I say I'm a HOE for Clone Wars.

Ahsoka Tano is easily the most dynamic character in the series. She is given so much screen time and character development, probably because she doesn't show up in the movies and thus the writers had far more

love for Ahsoka Tano = 100000

So, okay, when I heard that an author I love was writing a book about a character I love so much, I was obviously excited. And I ended up really liking this!

[THANK GOD.]

This story is an action-packed one primarily about found family. As Ahsoka reels from the destruction of Order 66 and the loss of her friends, she works to oppose an oppressive order on a planet she’s chosen to hide on. [I feel like such a nerd typing this.]

Guys, I adore Ahsoka

If you are a fan of Star Wars, especially the animated The Clone Wars TV series, then Star Wars: Ahsoka is certainly not to be missed. While that show may have ended a couple years ago, many were surprised when Anakin Skywalker’s young Padawan Ahsoka Tano, who left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, suddenly resurfaced again in the current run of Star Wars: Rebels. This Ahsoka is older, wiser, and carries a lot

I was left a little disappointed. Writing style left much to be desired. (More telling than showing.) LGBT undertones. I'm pretty sick of authors cramming their agenda down the throats of readers. Honestly, Ahsoka deserves a better book. Solid 3.5 stars, but rounded up to 4.

Immediate Review: Unrealized potential

Myself, along with many others, have fallen in love with Ahsoka Tano since she was introduced in the Clone Wars animated series. Headstrong, funny, a fierce warrior and an overall incredibly likeable character had me excited for this novel. Unfortunately, it largely fails to deliver.

However, saying that, I am conflicted. For the first 280 or 290 pages of the book, this is a story that is just the daily life of Ahsoka after Order 66. She primarily interacts

Very light, enjoyable read. I definitely like Ahsoka a lot more than I previously did.

After watching The Clone Wars some of the very first episodes of the show, I really didn’t care to continue with all the seasons. As much as I wanted to get in touch with my inner child, I couldn’t get into them. One reason being, the young

I didn't love this as much as I did Dark Disciple, however I think that's only because I have a really personal connection to Asajj. However, that's not to say that I this book wasn't really good.

You mainly follow Ahsoka in this novel, but there are a few other view points every now and then. They're all fine, but Ahsoka is the best perspective in this book. It was interesting to hear Ahsoka's evolved thoughts and beliefs about the Force, since she isn't a Jedi anymore.

Anyway, this was

When I first read that there would be an Ahsoka novel added to the new wave of Star Wars canon novels, I had mixed feelings. As is with most fans, my two experiences with the character were in the Clone Wars series and in the current series Rebels. Although the younger Ahsoka in Clone Wars grew on me (at least to the point where I didn't find her as annoying as the series went on) I have liked her limited appearances on Rebels a lot better, having seen what leaving the Jedi order and,

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

I had a humongous crush on Ahsoka when I saw her in the Clone Wars movie back in 2008, and it continued for the next 6 years throughout the TV show. She's such a fierce, strong and determined heroine (can you see why I like her?), and I can't wait for this more in-depth foray into her character. This book is going to blow me away. I can't wait!

As someone who didn't know much about Ahsoka aside from a handful of Clone Wars episodes I wasn't sure what to expect heading into the self titled novel. What I ended up with was a deep appreciation of the diversity in Jedi characters in the ever expanding universe whilst discovering a likable and unique character in Ahsoka Tano sans Anaki Skywalker.

The plot is simple and linear. Fleeing following Order 66, Ahsoka seeks refuge on a little known moon, only to find herself in front of the Empire

This was a fun little Star Wars book to listen to. It had solid characters and it also had a wholesome view of friendship that was warm and fuzzy. And as always, the audios are fun because of the sound effects. I'm not familiar with all of the Clone Wars stuff, and I'm glad that this knowledge wasn't needed to enjoy this one. So 4 stars.

Book finished and i found it oddly disappointing. I might gave been expecting too much from what is essentially a YA novel, but it was more of an ASHOKA TANO SEARCHING FOR A NEW PUPOSE IN LIFE WHILST BATTLING THE EMPIRE than a standalone true star wars tale. The book was beautifully produced, the writing pitched well at its

Another excellent entry into the Star Wars queue, albeit one that relies heavily on the readers foreknowledge of the Clone Wars saga.

Strangely, depsite being tied so strongly to canon, I still liked this book better than "Bloodlines" which I also read recently: though both authors have excellent writing styles/prose, this feels less constrained, like the author was given more freedom. in her writing.
R.F. Gammon
A less than enjoyable writing style (more telling than showing in just about everything) and what I think was supposed to be LGBT undertones marred my approval of what could have been an amazing book. The plot was well-paced, although the characters all kind of faded into one another. I very much loved getting to see Bail Organa again, though, no matter how brief it was. And Artoo never fails to disappoint.

But as far as a story about Ahsoka goes... forget it. Meh.
Holly (The Grimdragon)
Ahsoka watched. Ahsoka waited. Ahsoka was not afraid.

Not to state the obvious, but this is a book for people that are already familiar with Ahsoka Tano. Ahhh. My beloved Ahsoka, the young Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. We are introduced to Ahsoka (Snips) in The Clone Wars. Although not the most popular character at the beginning, she quickly became a cherished fan favorite! Hence why she has a full book dedicated to her story! I absolutely adore her. Full of snark, Ahsoka is a kickass, savage

I feel no guilt at all that my second favourite character in all the Star Wars Universe is Ahsoka Tano. I love Han Solo the most -- always have and always will (and he knows) -- but you may be surprised to hear that my second place finisher is not even a close run contest. Ahsoka is my second fave by a considerable distance.

And if Rosario Dawson ever plays Ahsoka in some live action incarnation of Star Wars, Harrison Ford will finally have some true competition for my Star Wars heart.

All this

E.K. Johnston won't disappoint you as she brings Ahsoka's story to life! As a huge Star Wars fan, I always worry about reading new stories about the phenomenal characters. It was amazing. I always admired the fierceness and strength of Ahsoka, so I loved reading more about her story after leaving the Jedi Order. You want to add it to your Want to Read List now!

I really enjoyed reading about Ahsoka, but felt the story fell really flat and did not like some of the characters. The writing did not do it for me at all...Really wanted to like this book more but It was so rushed and could have been a way better story if it weren't YA. I'll probs talk more about this in my July wrap-up later.

Unfortunately, I'm going to say this is probably my least favorite of the canon novels which have been released so far. This is doubly unfortunate because I'm actually a big fan of the Ahsoka Tano character and really enjoyed her retconned insertion into the Clone Wars as she enriched the story of Anakin Skywalker in a way which I felt the Prequels failed to do.

Like plenty of other adult fans, I enjoyed watching Ahsoka be inserted into the story of Star Wars: Rebels even if I did feel she

Executive Summary: I really enjoyed this, but it's probably best for those who are caught up on the Star Wars TV shows. I do wish it had been a bit longer but it does a good job in filling in the gaps after the Clone Wars.

Audiobook: So for anyone who doesn't know Ashley Eckstein is the voice of Ahsoka Tano, making her the perfect choice for an audio book about the character. She doesn't do a ton of voices, but I thought she did a good job as a narrator overall.

I feel 2 stars might be a bit too harsh, but I really struggled to finish this book.
Like many other Star Wars fans, I love Ahsoka. She's feisty, brave and super badass. When she appeared in Rebels I was ridiculously happy.
So when my husband brought this baby home, I was over the moon.

HOWEVER

This is really, really, REALLY slow.

The first half of the book is pretty much this: Ahsoka leaves a planet. Ahsoka moves to a new planet. Ahsoka finds a job.

Honestly, nothing remotely adventure-y or star

If you know who Ahsoka is, this is a must read.

(If you don't, move along.)

(Actually, wait. If you even marginally like Star Wars and don't know who Ahsoka is, get to a TV, watch the Clone Wars, and you're welcome.)

But if you do know who Ahsoka is, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. Because, as it says in the title, it's her book. It's what happened to her after the betrayal of the Jedi. And of course it's wonderful, written by someone who is a huge Star Wars fan, who has made a name for herself in the

Not a masterpiece by any stretch, but I think it is a worthy addition to the star wars canon. Obviously great for Ahsoka fans. I haven't seen any of the Rebels episodes but I suspect it does a great job linking Clone Wars and Rebels.

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. Well, that and how to muscle through awkward fanfic because it’s about a pairing she likes.
