Publisher's Summary

Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars and before she reappeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally her story will begin to be told.

Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa - and the Rebel Alliance.

    "Amazing Audiobook"

    Ashley Eckstein did an amazing job. The story was intriguing. The music and sounds went perfectly with her voice and the story. Definitely recommend!

    "Really enjoyed this."

    The fact the Ashely narrates the entire thing makes it that much better because you are literally getting to hear Ahsoka tell her story. Filled with extra small inserts from other well loved characters that I won't spoil but that truly add to the entire story. In my opinion this is a great set up prior to her appearance in Rebels and yes you do finally find out how where she got her light sabers from. There is background music and sound added through out the entire story which really add to a much fuller experience compared to reading through pages. Well done E.K & Ashley.

    "Bridging the gap"

    This is an absolute must read for fans of Star Wars the clone wars.
    It helps to bridge the gap between Star Wars the clone wars, and Star Wars Rebels.
    Ahsoka is a much loved character to us Star Wars fans, and it's nice to see her return in this novel.
    This novel answers lots of awesome questions, like how she obtained her new lightsabers.
    Read, listen, or both, and enjoy.

    Story
    "So much potential thrown away..."
    What disappointed you about Star Wars: Ahsoka?

    The characters beside Ahsoka are poorly introduced, barely described, and feel so very unimportant. It feels like they were thrown out there for drama building, but since the author couldn't make me care about them, it just felt boring. Honestly, they had 15 years of undefined Ahsoka lore they could create, and they chose this?? It's like this book was rushed in writing and production...


    What three words best describe Ashley Eckstein’s performance?

    She had fun. We can feel that she really liked doing this. That's a good thing. The bad thing is that her range of voices is very limited... so pretty much every characted sounded like Ahsoka. Plus, her narrating shifted depending on what was going on and who was doing what... and it felt weird. The direction wasn't the best.


    What character would you cut from Star Wars: Ahsoka?

    Every farmer. Also every chapter that had nothing to do with the story. It felt as if they were added to compensate for the boring story. Prehaps with those cuts they could have taken the time to write more character building around the bad guys.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like Ahsoka, the character. The book, however, is very bad. I don't understand how it got so many 5 stars... If you've already purchased it, be patient... the story gets a little bit interesting at chapter 25 of 32... but not that much.

    "Very disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I would have enjoyed a more developed story that did not feel so much like the author had to spoon feed me every detail. I get that its for a younger audience but this was much less than the character actually deserved.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. K. Johnston again?

    Perhaps, but it would need to be more developed than this book was.


    Did Ashley Eckstein do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, delivery wasn't awful but it was difficult to listen to when I felt like I was listening to "The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Ahsoka Edition."


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    severe disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I love Star Wars books, and for the most part even the ones that are poorly executed still have enough of the universe in them to help me enjoy the experience. I listened to about two hours of this book before putting it up for a month. Came back and struggled so hard to finish it. I believe I am being generous with my ratings and wish this book had come out better. Ahsoka is an amazing character and deserved a more developed story, especially since this is to be canon now. I felt like the story could have been condensed significantly without all the lack-luster spoon feeding of details.

    "Lack of Depth cont for new Star Wars books"

    I feel like every new canon Star Wars books (minus Dark Disciple and the Tarkin book, which a great) lack any really depth. The books seem great for young Star Wars fans but are missing character development and heavy plots like the Thrawn, Bane or Jedi academy book.

    "its okay"

    you wont really miss much if you skip this one. Aimed towards a younger audience. It is no more than a brief look in to how Ahsoka went from a lonely traveler on small worlds until she finds a reason to join and expand the early rebellion

    Story
    "The highs were high! But the lows, very low."

    The opening chapter created a ton of excitement! This was needed, because the 3.5 hours that followed were slow, boring, forced and really not needed. It seemed like there was a great story outlined, but Johnson needed filler to make it long enough to be called a novel. It's unfortunate that this book was either rushed, or just not thought out, because Ashoka is one of my favorite characters. Raised in the force by Master Plo Koon and trained and fought directly under Anakin Skywalker, Ashoka is an extremely powerful force user! The new canon on saber crystals was interesting, and as always Senator Organa was a welcomed addition! One timeline question that confused me is that Ashoka is just joining the rebellion, yet Antilles is already a part of it. Rebels has Ashoka already intertwined, and possibly dead, when Antilles defects from the Empire and joins the rebellion. This confused me. As I said in my title, the highs were high, which luckily kept me going, as the last 2 hours was very enjoyable. Ashley Eckstein has a very welcoming voice, probably because we already know her as Ashoka, which added an extra star to my overall review. Just like Aftermath, the inner plot was rushed, and it's a real shame. More meat, less lumpy potatoes. Lol. Give it a listen, but know that only about a third of the book is actually worth it, the rest is pointless dribble.

    "Enjoyable story."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Ahsoka?

    NA - Won't give away spoilers.


    Have you listened to any of Ashley Eckstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I found it very hard to listen to Ashley Eckstein's narration of the book. She was very clear and well spoken, but her voice range was severally limited. Every character she was trying to voice sounded exactly the same. I think a more experienced\well ranged narrator such as January Lavoy or Marc Thompson would have brought a whole different dynamic to the audio book.

    That being said it was cool to have the same voice actor that has done Asoka in other media reprise her roll.
