A New Dawn is designed to be a prequel to the Star Wars Rebels TV show.
As i have only seen the first couple of episodes of Star Wars Rebels, A New Dawn has helped me get to grips on what is happening after the creation of the Galactic Empire. A New Dawn focuses on Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus, specifically on how they end up working together at the start of the Rebels series.
A New Dawn was an enjoyable read, although a tad dark at times. We were introduced to a new planet (at least i had not heard of it before), Gorse and its moon Cynda, and got to see the evil empire working in full action!
The overall plot was a tad predictable, but it entertained me none the less. I would have had liked to read more on the imperial side, and not so much of Kanan and his self-love. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the plot twists, but looking back on it now they were a tad obvious due to the characters nature.
That said, A New Dawn was a really good read but it just missed that something that makes me fall in love with a book. I am definitely motivated to watch the Star Wars Rebels TV show now! A must read if you like the TV show.
