Review: Ahsoka

Ahsoka (Star Wars)Ahsoka by E.K. Johnston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first started watching Clone Wars, Ahsoka was whiny and annoying. Now she is easily one of my favorite Star Wars characters. Her arcs in Clone Wars ( especially in the final season) are some of the best in Star Wars. So it is a tall order to follow, but Johnston's book does not disappoint. It adds to and reinforces the character we know, while showing her growth and adaption to life in the new Empire. It also provides a great bridge from Clone Wars to Rebels.

That it is a YA novel doesn't really show except in a few places where more 'adult' elements might have been explored. It's not at all juvenile or simplistic.

There are a few minor differences between the last few episodes of the Clone Wars and this, but nothing serious. Plus, if abide by Obi-Wan's maxim regarding Star Wars: it is always 'from a certain point of view'.
