Following the rise of Emperor Palpatine and the devastation of the Jedi Order, Ahsoka Tano is on the run. The Empire is hunting down any potential Force users and, while she is assumed dead, the former Padawan of Anakin Skywalker soon finds that no place in the galaxy is truly safe for her- or the friends she makes.
While there are still plenty of exciting events, the book features a little less straight-forward action than fans of Ahsoka and her signature twin lightsabers might expect. Instead, readers get to see her use all the other skills shes accumulated over the years. Tension builds as Ahsoka weighs her need to stay hidden against using her powers to help people, learns of the growing rebellion against the Empire, and contemplates her role in that rebellion.
