By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 31 Dec. 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
The story running through issues #1- 5 of Dark Horse's Star Wars series Dawn of the Jedi - Force Storm is collected as Star Wars - Dawn of The Jedi Force Storm (Vol. 1). This story is set 36,000 years before the first Star Wars film, Episode IV - A New Hope. The artwork is very good, but the script is a bit wordy, despite being written by a mainstream professional who has done excellent work in the past, though he does have to pack a lot in. The story was not particularly interesting to me, with flying pyramids powered by ancient mystical forces summoning people to mysterious ancient planets to develop their connections to the mysterious ancient "Force", then wait around for a long time before an ancient evil space-faring empire comes a calling, bringing a disruption to the force. It did seem very `heroic fantasy' meets `science fantasy', and not that much different to the `current' Star Wars universe, considering that it is set 36,000 years ago. If you are a Star Wars fan, you are most likely to find it interesting, but if not, then you might find it a bit confusing, but readable and enjoyable, but nothing spectacular - apart from the landscapes.

An excellent and ambitious story from the star wars universe. This offers an insight into the origins of the jedi and the force.
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.

Highly recommended.

I'm surprised at this. I'm a long time fan of Ostranda and Duursema having read Star Wars Legacy for the four years it ran as well as their Quinlan Vos stories and various other stories in the Republic line.

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.

Introduces the Ratakan. interesting to see how the Sith & Jedi were once comrades and how it was more about balance in the Force rather than dark or light tendencies.
