Star Wars: A New Dawn
I just finished reading Star Wars: A New Dawn. As far as Star Wars books go... it was ok. It wasn't amazing or anything, but I had fun reading it.
I know that's not a rousing endorsement but there's a reason for that. This is a tie-in novel with the current Star Wars CG TV show Star Wars Rebels.
A New Dawn fleshes out two of the characters' backstory. It's an interesting look at where they're coming from. Unfortunately, because you know they're in the show you know that they're never in real danger. They're obviously alive further on in the timeline. It takes a lot of the tension away from the novel.
While I love the Star Wars universe and read a lot of the books in it this is one I would tell most people to stay away from.
There is an exception!
If you're a fan of the Star Wars Rebels TV show and really want to find out more about Kannan and Hera's past together, by all means grab yourself a copy of A New Dawn. For the rest of you out there, it's an easy Star Wars book to skip.
