Summary:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . . .
 
“The war is over. The Separatists have been defeated, and the Jedi rebellion has been foiled. We stand on the threshold of a new beginning.”—Emperor Palpatine
 
For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force. But they were betrayed—and the entire galaxy has paid the price. It is the Age of the Empire.
 
Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects’ lives.
 
But even as the Emperor tightens his iron grip, others have begun to question his means and motives. And still others, whose lives were destroyed by Palpatine’s machinations, lay scattered about the galaxy like unexploded bombs, waiting to go off. . . .
 
The first Star Wars novel created in collaboration with the Lucasfilm Story Group, Star Wars: A New Dawn is set during the legendary “Dark Times” between Episodes III and IV and tells the story of how two of the lead characters from the animated series Star Wars Rebels first came to cross paths. Featuring a foreword by Dave Filoni.

    The story was ok, but told way to long in a dull way at times. Sometimes i just fased out during the listening. On the plus side, when you miss part, that ain't to big of a deal. Ok story, bad writing in my opinion. Unlike the rest of the new canon storie, wich are great!

    I really like the series Star Wars rebels I watch it all the time. This book made me understand the series a little better and how it ties in to the original Star Wars movies ????????ps The series on TV Star Wars rebels season four has ended a while ago is they’re going to be a season five I hope so ?

    Plodding storyline. Disappointing because I like the Star Wars label. 12 hours? Could have been told in 6. I zoned out for minutes occasionally, but still got the gist of it. Great voice actors though.
