John Jackson Miller: A New Dawn (Star Wars) (Hardcover, 2014, Del Rey) 4 stars

New beginnings are hard

4 stars

This was a good introduction to two beloved characters from Star Wars: Rebels. This story follows the initial meeting of Kanan Jarrus & Hera Syndulla. Their rebellious conviction, much like their connection, is in its infancy so we get to go along for the wild ride. Introducing yet another despicable villain along with two unlikely heroes who side with our main characters, this addition to the Star Wars universe was intense, emotional and, at times, frustrating...just the way I like my Star Wars stories.
