REVIEW – Star Wars: A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller

A New DawnThey say brevity is the soul of wit, but despite the brief nature of this review, it’s not particular witty. I think I originally wrote it on my Kindle (hence the brevity; virtual keyboards are difficult to write on).

A New Dawn is an action-packed look at the origin of the partnership between Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus (of Disney XD’s “Star Wars Rebels” fame). While independently working against an Imperial scheme to mine a world in a manner which makes strip mining look environmentally friendly, Hera and Kanan meet and agree to work together to stop the Empire’s plan.

It gives a good look at Kanan’s background, and the source of his self-doubt, particularly his status as a reluctant former Jedi and rebel. It also develops Hera more than the animated series has thus far, shedding light on her motivations and dedication to the budding Rebellion.
