Foreword by Dave Filoni

A story with pacing and dialogue that feels like classic Star Wars. Nerdist

Ever since the Jedi were marked for death, Kanan Jarrus has devoted himself to staying alive rather than serving the Force. So when he discovers a conflict brewing between Imperial forces and desperate revolutionaries, he's not about to get caught in the crossfire. Then the brutal death of a friend forces him to choose between bowing down to fear or standing up to fight. But Jarrus won t be fighting alone. Soon he is joined by Hera Syndulla a mysterious agent provocateur with motives of her own in challenging the Empire for the sake of a world and its people.
