A book you won’t be able to put down. Extremely fun and action packed. Fun backstory about Ahsoka and her life after she left the Jedi Order.

This story takes place on the first empire day. It is one of the better Star Wars backstories. If you love Ahsoka you will love this book. May the force be with you

Ashoka was great- I’ve been getting really into Star Wars again and love SW Rebels so I was excited to learn more about Ahsoka Tano. The dialogue was a little meh towards the end but I loved the concepts, Ahsoka’s story and how it was filled in, and how it connects to the Star Wars Universe! I feel like it captured Ashoka’s voice well. There were many delightful cameos that served the purpose of the story while being fun for fans and I loved learning more about Kyber Crystals and lightsabers. It makes me wish we could have an animated show or miniseries about this period (post Clone Wars, pre Rebels). I also liked the flashback chapters, they were short but filled in interesting gaps.

I didn’t find a ton of the new characters compelling, but there were a couple that stood out. I liked seeing the Force through the eyes of various characters and the emphasis on family. I thought the encroachment of the Empire in various worlds was believable, how they began to systematically take over the galaxy. There were a couple action sequences that managed to shock me as well. And there was an intriguing suggestion that Kaeden, the character who first befriends Ahsoka and that we get to know best, has a crush on Ahsoka. There isn’t any romance in the book (everyone is rightly worried about survival) but it was cute how her friends and sister would tease her- she had to grow up so fast that a teenage crush is a welcome bit of normalcy. Overall, Star Wars: Ahsoka is a welcome addition to SW canon! I’m not sure how accessible it is to non-Star Wars fans, or even fans who haven’t seen one of the animated shows, but those even vaguely familiar with the character will enjoy it.

'Ahsoka' is a very much so the telling of the story you never expected. It is a continuation of what became of former Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano after the infamous Order 66 hit the Jedi Council and changed the galaxy forever. In this book you'll read about the struggles Ahsoka faces while living a Jedi-less life, concealing her identity so she stays protected from the evil clones. Though this story does have a slow start, by chapter 3 you will not be able to put the book down! 'Ahsoka' gives readers a closer look into civilian life in the Star Wars universe that we haven't seen before. The tale told is one any Star Wars fan will remember for Ahsoka's wise decisions and signature wit. Star Rating: 4/5

'Ahsoka' is a Star Wars novel written by E.K. Johnston and its plot circles around Anakin Skywalker's former protege, Ahsoka Tano following 'Revenge of the Sith' and her involvement in the forming rebellion against the Empire. Ahsoka's character is further developed; her grief over her fallen Jedi friends and her teacher/friend, Anakin, how her decision to leave the Jedi Order still affects her, how she survived Order 66, and her growth as she discovers where she fits in the Force. It is a nice edition to her character, however, the book wasn't a plot gripper for me. The other characters in this novel, save for a few, weren't compelling or interesting to me. The plot become intriguing towards the end when Ahsoka gets involved with the Rebellion. It is still well-written and I loved Ahsoka's inner conflict and development (I found this was its strong point). I'll give it a 3 out of 5.

Well done! I enjoyed this story, and also learned more about Ahsoka. Overall, the story flowed pretty well, but the interjections that focused on other characters, especially when it was Obi-Wan, just detracted from the main story. I also thought that some of the jarringly violent parts with the Inquisitor really didn't need to be there. Star Wars fans will enjoy this one.

Great book!! Easy to read but also very interesting. It's full of history while also telling a great story of the present time.
Highly recommended.

very good book. I'm happy to finally know what happened to Ahsoka after Order 66.

Ahsoka turned out to be one of the best characters in the Star Wars: Clone Wars/ Star Wars: Rebels TV series. If you haven't seen her character's growth in these TV series then it is worth watching for any Star Wars fan. This book gives insight on what happens to her between the TV series and how she grows and ends up joining the rebellion after Order 66. Her strong and fierce character won't disappoint you.

The author is incorrect as well as the title of the book. It is NOT "Ashoka" but "Ahsoka". The thumbnail of the book cover shows you the correct information.
