Star Wars Ahsoka
In the waning days of the Republic, Jedi-in-training Ahsoka Tano left the order after being falsely accused of a crime and exiled. Years later, she reappears as Fulcrum, an intelligence expert and fixer for the nascent Rebellion. But what happened in between? Where has she been and how did she find her way into the employ of Bail Organa?
Ahsoka fills that gap for fans, serving as a bridge between The Clone Wars and Rebels TV shows, sharing part of Ahsoka’s adventures between the two storylines. It’s a worthy bridge exploring what it meant to her to leave the Jedi Order, only to survive the Jedi Purge and Order 66 essentially by accident.
Thankfully, unlike many entries in the Star Wars expanded universe that answer questions but fail to entertain or satisfy readers, this story enriches Ahsoka as a character. She struggles, she suffers, she makes mistakes (but not stupid, plot-driven mistakes), and she comes out stronger for it.
Even if the adventure plot itself is a little pedestrian, Ahsoka the character absolutely shines, as she quite rightly deserves to. Younger readers and older fans alike will both get something out of this one.
