    1. A long time ago in a galaxy, far far awaya new expanded universe is born.n!TURMOIL HAS ENGULFED THE EXPANDED UNIVERSE OF STAR WARSFor those who didn't know, let me explain that this novel, A New Dawn, is the first official book printed by Lucasfilms now under the control of the Disney EmpEr, I mean Company.The official statement is that you don't need to have read any previous novel, only having watched the 6 films, to be able to understand what you read in the following novels to be printed fro [...]

    2. A New Dawn is one of the best Star Wars novels I’ve read, and whatever hesitations you have about the new canon, I’m here to tell you that you should be excited for where this is all going because it’s worth your time and attention.I love how modern this book feels. I’ve just finished watching The Clone Wars (the animated show—infinitely better than the prequels) and reading this right after was a perfect fit. It’s got all the awesome bits about the newer Star Wars universe in terms [...]

    3. 3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2014/11/11/rLike many Star Wars fans, I was initially disappointed by the news earlier this year that Lucasfilm has pretty much nuked most of the franchise’s Expanded Universe, declaring all of it as no longer official canon. But after some thinking, I’ve come to terms with it and now actually believe that it was a wise decision. Having ballooned into this humongous bloated entity after all these years, if anything needed a hard reset it was th [...]

    4. Having just started watching Star Wars Rebels, and being intrigued by the formation of the SW Story Group earlier this year, I was excited to pick this up (read and listened to through Audible). I have to admit, having JJM's name on the cover helped - I actually didn't find the art on the cover that appealing at all; too "cartoony", despite the fact that I knew it was a tie in to Rebels - as I knew what kind of ride I was in for (I loved Kenobi).And what a ride it was!Worldbuilding, well, what c [...]

    5. I kept falling asleep as I read this book. that speaks volumes. Yes, when it comes down to it, the plot is a total snooze fest.It still felt like a story for kids or teens who don't read sophisticated science fiction.The story was convoluted, with events happening conveniently, just so the plot would work, not because it would make sense.You can tell the author tries to address the gender issues that have come up in the Star Wars universe by including female characters in important roles. Howeve [...]

    6. E ovo je vec daleko zabavnija knjiga u odnosu na Tarkina. Relativno mracna (za SW standarde) na momente, a onda opet na momente naivna kada smo sa glavnim likovima i njihovim resenjima za akciju. Ali sve je lepo napisano, lako se cita i drzi paznju. Likovi su interesantni i relativno dobro razradjeni, sa dovoljno dubine ali opet da ostne dovoljno misterije za otkrivanje. Negativac je pravi zloca bez grize savesti, prosto je zadovoljstvo imati nekoga ko je samo zao a da ne bude neshvacen ili da g [...]

    7. "A New Dawn" introduces us to the reboot of the Star Wars Extended Universe and features two characters of the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels.The novel is set between the third and fourth movie during the glory days of the Empire. The focus is on a planet without rotation and its accompanying moon, which is one of the main provider's of thorilide, a resource the Empire needs to build its Star Destroyers.Count Vidian, half man, half cyborg, is sent there on behalf of the Emperor to inc [...]

    8. This book gets a solid 3 stars. Picked up an arc from sdcc and zoomed through it. I was also at the rebels premier screening so this is coming from the perspective of having seen the first episode of rebels before reading this. The Good:- It made me care more about Kanan, and he seemed in character with the cartoon. He definitely has the lovable rogue thing going on, more good natured than han solo but similar in ways. He likes the ladies which felt a bit annoying and objectifying at times. Hope [...]

    9. 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.

    10. I've read fanfic that was worth more than this bookIt makes me feel really old to say this but it's probably been eight years since I picked up and read a Star Wars book that wasn't for my kids. Growing up I had always liked Star Wars but honestly, I didn't become a fan until the 90's when I was loaned the Thrawn Trilogy. I owe my adulthood passion for SW to the Expanded Universe but once I hit the NJO I just lost my interest in it. Fast forward to the announcement that one of my favorite author [...]

    11. As someone online on tvtropes noted, A New Dawn is a good title for this book in a meta-sense. In-story, this is about the beginnings of rebellion against the Empire, and of Kanan Jarrus taking his life in a new direction, but as a the first book in the new Star Wars "canon" since Disney took over, the title is quite apt.The story takes place about eight years after Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and about six years prior to the start of the Star Wars: Rebels animated series. Since [...]

    12. As part of my quest 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 War [...]

    13. I've fallen down a Star Wars k-hole lately, and I'm not fighting it. That includes finally-FINALLY-tackling the Expanded Universe (or, Star Wars Legends if it's pre-April, 2014.) The only Star Wars novels I had read previously were novelizations of the original trilogy that I read around the time they came out. This is a story in the Star Wars Rebels timeline, which means it's automatically in canon (at least, for now it is), and tells the story of how Kanan met Hera. This is before Sabine, Zeb [...]

    14. A very entertaining audiobook, with a strong set of characters, a well-defined setting and exciting music and effects used appropriately to enhance the listening experience.My main complaint? I'm quite disappointed that Count Vidian died at the end, I thought he was a terrific Star Wars villain for the 21st century- an unflinching, number-crunching psycho who presents both a mental and a physical threat to the nascent rebels.If the intention behind this book was to spur my interest in watching t [...]

    15. Find this and many other reviews at Geekritique!A New Dawn is a great title for this book in a symbolic sense. It plays off the fact that this is the very first in a series of new canon Star Wars novels, and what with the very first released Star Wars film being titled A New Hope, the title of the book also plays off fan nostalgia. It's also the dawn of a new Star Wars franchise in that the characters introduced here will be further developed in the Star Wars: Rebels cartoon. But thematically, t [...]

    16. 3.5 starsI have come to the Star Wars Extended Universe at the right time - just after its reboot. And, this is the first new cannon novel and the prequel to Star Wars Rebels, the series which I like very, very much.The story of the first meeting between Kanan and Hera, A New Dawn will be interesting to all the people who enjoy sci-fi and adventure, not only Star Wars fans. The novel is set on the mining planet Gorse and its moon Cynda. Count Vidian arrives on the planet to increase the producti [...]

    17. If you watch Disney XD’s TV show “Star Wars Rebels”, you are probably a Star Wars fan. And a nerd. And someone who likes cartoons. If that sounded insulting, it wasn’t meant to be. I happen to be all three of those things. (Strangely enough, though, I do NOT watch “Star Wars Rebels”, and I should. At least, according to most people I know. I’ve been told I need to watch it. I’ve been told I need to watch “Game of Thrones”, too, but I haven’t. Other TV shows I have been told [...]

    18. Pretty solid. Reasonably entertaining, but not particularly compelling or memorable, with solid characters. Expected at least some lightsaber action based on the cover but nope, it stayed locked in a container the entire book and was only mentioned once or twice.All told, A New Dawn didn't feel as Star Wars-y as I'd hoped, though maybe it's because it's based in a period I haven't read much into (between III and IV), where the Star Wars we know and love via space battles, different worlds, and s [...]

    19. “The worst thing is to see and not to care.”A New Dawn es el reinicio del canon del Universo Extendido de Star Wars post compra de LucasFilm por el imperio de Disney™Localizada luego del episodio III pero varios años antes de A New Hope, el libro nos muestra los inicios de lo que luego será la rebelión de la mano de Hera Syndulla (ref: Clone Wars), quien está viajando a través de gran parte de la galaxia para encontrar a potenciales aliados en la futura lucha contra el imperio, durant [...]

    20. I skimmed most of this book and read the Wookiepedia summary. I dunno what it is but a lot of the newer Star Wars books just aren't as interesting as the Legends books are/were. And I can understand this to an extent, but the lack of Jedi powers is really boring to me. Like obiously Kanan can't just go around using his powers willy-nilly, but it just makes the book boring for me if there are no Jedi/Sith/Force-user characters who're able to use their powers. I didn't expect this to be my favorit [...]

    21. “Star Wars: A New Dawn” is an important entry into the Star Wars library for a few reasons. First, it is the first book in Disney’s new Star Wars canon. In other words, this book is just as much a part of the Star Wars saga as any of the movies. Second, this book introduces readers to a few of the main characters in the upcoming animated TV show “Star Wars: Rebels.” To be perfectly honest, I had not been particularly excited about “Rebels.” I had some issues with “The Clone Wars [...]

    22. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.>>Minor plot and character spoilers ahead.<<So, it's a New Dawn in the Star Wars universe. A new dawn that will bring big changes to Star Wars lore, but is it really? Well, to get straight to the point, no it isn't, at least not with this book. Star Wars: A New Dawn serves one true purpose, to introduce the new line-up for the upcoming Rebels cartoon series. And in that sense it is successful. Kanan, the main character here, is a solid characte [...]

    23. I’m one of those geeks that HATED the Star Wars prequels. I feel they’re kind of like Matrix 2 and 3 to me, they don’t exist. With all that said, I was wary of reading A New Dawn.The story takes place on Gorse, a mining planet known for their harvesting of thorilide, a substance that the burgeoning Empire is using to build Star Destroyers. Gorse’s moon Cynda is a gold mine of thorilide. When the Empire decides they need more of it, they sent a human turned cyborg Count Vidian to inspect [...]

    24. Read this review and more on my blog.A New Dawn is designed to be a prequel to the Star Wars Rebels TV show.As i have only seen the first couple of episodes of Star Wars Rebels, A New Dawn has helped me get to grips on what is happening after the creation of the Galactic Empire. A New Dawn focuses on Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus, specifically on how they end up working together at the start of the Rebels series.A New Dawn was an enjoyable read, although a tad dark at times. We were introduced [...]

    25. if you are watching Star Wars Rebels and have not read this book, shame on you. If you are not watching Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD channel, double shame on you! ( It is really good) This fast paced book by John Jackson Miller spins the tale on how Hera & Kanan first meet. Kana is the rogue, Han Solo type individual keeping his head done. Hera is a girl with a plan. The setting is a planet and its dependent mining moon where a new Imperial officer does what Imperial officers do, which is n [...]

    26. Star Wars: A New Dawn takes place a few years before the events of the new animated TV show Star Wars Rebels and introduces us to two of that series’ main characters: Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla. Having watched a few episodes of Rebels and having enjoyed what I saw, I thought I’d check out this tie-in novel. Like the animated series that inspired it, the best thing about Star Wars: A New Dawn is in its dynamic and fun characters. While I’m going to avoid many major plot spoilers in this [...]

    27. I'm getting ready to give watching Rebels another try, and this was nicely packaged with the Tarkin novel, I thought I'd give it a shot.I suspect if I was invested in the characters, I might have liked it more Hera was a little too mysterious, and a little too perfect. Kanan tries too hard not to care in the way you know he's always going to do the right thing, every time. He even came with his own Obi-Wan type mentor. Hopefully they're better on the cartoon.The story was pretty decent, and defi [...]

    28. Sowith "Star Wars: A New Dawn" we are officially going over to the Disney side of the Force. Sigh.Let me first annoy and distract you with my perspective on the Star Wars universe as it stands now. I think that pretending all the ancillary books and games and everything else from the 1970's to just recently no longer exists is a bad idea. That is a LOT of good work done by good people to just say "yeahne of that actually happened." So we're all getting a refund, right? Oh, okay. I didn't think s [...]

    29. YaaaaaawnMan, this was a snoozer. I'm not entirely sure what happened in this book, nor am I certain if that's my own fault or the book's. Long story short, this is the introduction to Kanan and Hera from the animated Star Wars show, Rebels. While I love Rebels, I was more than a little underwhelmed with a A New Dawn. The basic premise of the tale is to. . . thwart a mining explosion conspiracy? I think? Kanan and Hera were my main reasons for picking up this book in the first place, but I soon [...]
