I received a prerelease e-copy of this book through NetGalley with the expectation that I will post a review on their site and others (my blog, Goodreads, Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, Twitter, Amazon, etc.).
I requested this book as I have another Star Wars book written by John Jackson Miller. This book did not disappoint. I will give you my opinions on this book without giving away the total plot line. I hate it when reviewers do that and if I read the review first I tend not to read it.
This book takes place during the time span between the movies Star Wars III and IV. It is also the background story for two of the main characters, Caleb Dume and Hera Syndulla, in the forthcoming Star Wars animated series Star War Rebels.
The author does a commendable job of developing the story with the two main characters and several others in the vein of many of the other Star Wars novels that do not contain many of the original characters from the movies. It also helps to set the stage for the upcoming animated series.
I recommend this book for anyone who is anticipating watching the animated series and for any Star Wars ethusiast.
