"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . . ." The war is over. The Separatists have been defeated, and the Jedi rebellion has been foiled. We stand on the threshold of a new beginning. Emperor Palpatine For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force. But they were betrayed and the entire galaxy has paid the price. It is the Age of the Empire. Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects lives. But even as the Emperor tightens his iron grip, others have begun to question his means and motives. And still others, whose lives were destroyed by Palpatine s machinations, lay scattered about the galaxy like unexploded bombs, waiting to go off. . . . The first "Star Wars" novel created in collaboration with the Lucasfilm Story Group, "Star Wars: A New Dawn" is set during the legendary Dark Times between Episodes III and IV and tells the story of how two of the lead characters from the animated series "Star Wars Rebels" first came to cross paths. Featuring a foreword by Dave Filoni. Praise for "A New Dawn" "" "A New Dawn" is a fine start to the new Expanded Universe.

"Roqoo Depot" A confidently told story that gives fans a lot of reason to be hopeful about what s to come as we move into this new phase of "Star Wars" . . . The book certainly got me even more excited for "Rebels" and to see more of Kanan and Hera s adventures. We re also introduced to other characters I would love to see again at some point, whether on "Rebels, "in another book or, who knows, in live-action at some point. "IGN" "" "A New Dawn" delivers a classic "Star Wars" experience that fans of all ages will be able to enjoy. It is extremely well-written, with an incredibly diverse cast too.

Coffee with Kenobi "A New Dawn" is a well-written novel full of intrigue and twists and turns that does an excellent job of letting "Star Wars" fans get to know Kanan and Hera. Tosche Station "A New Dawn" finds an era never before written about in the "Star Wars" universe the years prior to the original movie, Episode IV in robust good health. The narrative takes place on two worlds and a handful of ships in between them, but as with the best of all "Star Wars" moments, hints at hidden depths beyond. "Mashable""
