A New Dawn

A New Dawn: Star Wars - Dave Filoni, John Jackson Miller

This was pretty good.


I listened to 90% of this on audio and the narrration itself was excellent! Marc Thompson does it again. His voices are insane.


This served as a prequel to the current Star Wars tv show Rebels. This story focused on how the two stars of that tv show, Hera and Kannan, met. There is a mining guild of sorts and a plan that endangers many lives in order to get an ore the Empire needs. I didn't find that part terribly interesting and the story lost a bit of steam in the second half. But the final quarter moved with Star Wars worthy intensity to redeem it at the end. The characters, the camaraderie, the villian were all great.
