What are you currently reading?

Clockwork Prince, Walmart Edition (The Infernal Devices, Volume 2 ...

Yes, I am diving right back in shadow hunter world and I am enjoying The Infernal Devices a lot more than The Mortal Instruments, and I could see why Tessa, Will and Jem are amazing characters, and it really has a chance to see the shadow hunter world more in depth.

Amazon.com: Illuminae (The Illuminae Files) (9780553499117): Amie ...

I am currently listening to the audiobook, and it is amazing. I already read this series, but hearing the voices it reminds me of those old radio serials with an amazing voice cast.

What did you recently finish reading?

Star Wars: Ahsoka by E. K. Johnston, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®

As a fan of both Clone Wars and Rebels, I became a fan of Ahsoka Tano. This book takes place after Clone Wars and before Rebels, and it really does a good job at fleshing out her character, and dealing with the events after Revenge of the Sith.

Amazon.com: The Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising Trilogy ...

This was a very unique take on Arthurian Legend, and I like that it focused on Guinevere, and her trying to protect Arthur, and I really enjoyed it, and seeing a lot of references to the original King Arthur tale.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Amazon.com: Between Burning Worlds (2) (System Divine ...

I read Sky Without Stars, and I loved it. A great retelling of Les Mis, set in space, which now deals with the characters, and a rebellion. I am very excited to read the sequel.

That is my WWW Wednesday. What books are you currently reading? What have you recently finished and what will you be reading next? Let me know in the comments below!

 

Ahsoka by EK Johnston

Summary:

Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, and before she re-appeared 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…. 

The Review:

I have always been interested in the story of Ahsoka since I started watching the Clone Wars on Disney Plus, (I’m on season 2 right now) and very intriguied by her story. She was Anakin’s apprentince during the Clone Wars, and one of the very few Jedi that survived Order 66.

This book is set after the events of Revenge of the Sith, when the Empire took over and starting to hunt down any surviving Jedi, so of course Ahsoka is trying to lay low and not draw attention towards herself.

With Ahsoka, there is a lot of elements of her reeling from the events of the Clone Wars, and surviving Order 66, and you really feel a sense of isolation with her, realizing that she has no one. The story is very character driven and the plot is very simple as to mainly being Ahsoka in hiding, and fleeing from Inquisitors.

She meets with a few characters, and goes by the name Ashla to hid her identity, and then tries to protect them from her past. I love a lot of the meditation chapters that peak into her memories of her time during the Clone Wars including her fight with Darth Maul, giving him more glimpses of her character.

The story was very character driven, and a little light on plot, however, I did like a few of the cameos including Bail Organa and little Princess Leia. Hopefully if there is a sequel I want to see the Ahsoka, and how she ended up on Fulcrum in Star Wars Rebels.

In the end, I really enjoyed Ahsoka. It was a nice character piece about one of my favorite Star Wars characters and how she dealt with the events after Revenge of the Sith, and puts Ahsoka. I know EK Johnston wrote other Star Wars stories and I am more than happy to read them

Grade: 4/5
