Beginning with a very touching and atmospheric opening issue, the story then focuses on its main characters; largely a group of mid-level j'daii.
focusing on the characters is a great, and once the story is set up you will be gripped to see where the characters are taken in this story.
This collection feels very much like the 1st part in a trilogy, or the 1st third of the 1st part of a trilogy. it'll make you invest in the epic story and the conflict between the characters.
It isn't neccessarily for the star wars hard fan, but a knowldge of the expanded universe would help.
Aslong as you love the films there is something here for you, there are recognisable stories and themes that will not isolate any reader.
What you get here is a story that in my mind is trying be the next Knights of the Old Republic. It takes place something like, 20,000 years before a new hope in the supposed ancient times. Despite it being tens of thousands of years in the past, they still have spaceships, flagships and various other pieces of high-tech that doesn't really fool the reader into believing that the story is set in this time period. The only pieces of low-tech are slug thrower pistols (normal guns) and swords which would be fine if one of the antagonists didn't have what's called a "Force Saber" which, as far as I can determine, is no different from a Lightsaber despite Ostrander and Duursema insisting that it isn't.
The one thing that this book does have is a lot of characters that have the potential to be interesting except that they're not. They're pretty cliched. You have your Anakin Skywalker esque character, your Han Solo esque character and so on.
Dawn of the Jedi was boring quite honestly. The characters didn't grab me and it didn't feel like it was an exciting, unexplored era.
