Book Review: ‘Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void’

Title: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void
Author: Tim Lebbon
Release Date: May 7, 2013

Into the Void is the third Star Wars novel released in 2013 and is very much different from the first two. In January we got Scoundrels, the highly anticipated novel by Star Wars writer royalty Tim Zahn. February saw the release of The Last Jedi, a novel that was basically the unofficial 4th book of the Coruscant Nights series. Scoundrels featured a large cast of characters including film characters Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and Chewbacca. The Last Jedi didn’t have any of our film good guys but did feature Darth Vader as the main villain.

Into the Void had no film characters to rely on to attract the casual readers. It didn’t even have the familiar eras. In fact it started it’s own era, “Before the Republic” (yes the Dawn of the Jedi comics officially started this era but Into the Void is the first novel). Hopefully this unfamiliarity will not drive off readers, because I believe the strength of this book is how different it is.

Princess Leia Organa and the Courage and Wisdom Found in Youth

I imagine Princess Leia got up early every morning.

As I watch A New Hope, I really can’t help but wonder how Princess Leia got where she was, especially once you get to the scene where she is confronting Darth Vader on the Tantive IV. Basically she is standing there telling the evil dark lord, Darth Vader, “…only you could be so bold.” with that trademark, snippy sarcasm. Princess Leia is laying it down, laying down the smack.
