A New Dawn

A New Dawn (Star Wars)Goodreads Synopsis:    Ever since the Jedi were marked for death and forced to flee Coruscant, Kanan Jarrus has devoted himself to staying alive rather than serving the Force. Wandering the galaxy alone, from one anonymous job to another, he avoids trouble--especially with the Empire--at all costs. So when he discovers a deadly conflict brewing between ruthless Imperial forces and desperate revolutionaries, he's not about to get caught in the crossfire. Then the brutal death of a friend at the Empire's hands forces the ex-Jedi to make a choice: bow down to fear, or stand up and fight.

But Jarrus won't be fighting alone. Unlikely allies, including a bomb-throwing radical, a former Imperial surveillance agent, a vengeful security officer, and the mysterious Hera Syndulla--an agent provocateur with motives of her own--team up with Jarrus to challenge the Empire. As a crisis of apocalyptic proportions unfolds on the planet Gorse, they must stand together against one of the Emperor's most fearsome enforcers--for the sake of a world and its people.

My Thoughts:

-    I enjoyed learning about Hera and Kanan, and I liked how they met. 

-    The story had a fun cast of characters.

-    The writing was very dry, and the story was slow at times. I kept waiting for certain things to happen. I wanted to know when Hera was going to bring the Ghost in, and I wanted to know when Hera was going to recruit Kanan, but I'm left hanging for a LONG time.
