Dawn of the Jedi: a Star Wars story released just when I – and many others – was starting to doubt the franchise, and for a lot of reasons.  But there were also a lot of reasons to feel…a new hope…

This essay really says all that I have to say on the outside.  I had really all but given up on Star Wars at the point that I purchased Dawn of the Jedi.  I came across a really good sale on books and I bought Force Storm, Into the Void and several other books.  If these books had sucked, I might have stopped right there.  That was how I was feeling, and why I had gone since Apocalypse within paying attention to any new releases.  Thankfully, Dawn of the Jedi: Force Storm was good, and while Into the Void wasn’t quite to that level, it was good too.  I’m still here.

Dawn of the Jedi is the earliest part in Star Wars continuity; in fact, it s the closest thing to “dawn of civilization” that we are likely to get for a galaxy-spanning civilization.  And as such, it introduces things to the Star Wars mythos, but nothing that changes the game forever.  Still, it made decisions that tied things in the Star Wars universe together in unexpected ways.  Read the analysis here.
