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.

I loved this book so much! So happy that Ashley read it, it was amazing! And such a cliff hanger so happy at the end when we learned how she became Fulcrum and Darth Vader was mentioned. I loved how things were mentioned for Star Wars the clones wars and leading into Star Wars rebels!

Twenty years ago all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon and made to live in virtual imprisonment on the Isle of the Lost. The island is surrounded by a magical force field that keeps the villains and their descendants safely locked up and away from the mainland. Life on the island is dark and dreary. It is a dirty, decrepit place left to rot and forgotten by the world.

The story was OK, but the narration was terrible.

It's obvious that this book was written to set up a TV series, but I knew that from the beginning. My only real complaint is that it was hard to listen to the narrator. She was too breathy and often placed the emphasis on strange parts of a sentence.
