Ahsoka
"You don’t have to look tough to be tough."

When Ahsoka first appeared in the Star Wars universe in 2008’s Clone Wars film, fans knew she would special. Her feisty attitude was evident from the beginning as she bantered with her master, Anakin, who was not one to trifle with himself, and then we watched in amazement as the two became a tremendous team right before our eyes.

Throughout the Clone Wars’ six-year run, Ahsoka grew from the lovable Padawan into a complex, storied character and a fan favorite. Her return in the Rebels TV series at the end of Season 1 excited fans all over again and further solidified her important presence in the fight against the Empire.

Throughout her televised escapades, we’ve gotten to watch Ahsoka grow from a young, wide-eyed Padawan into an integral part of the Rebellion against the Empire and a mentor in her own right. We’ve seen her stand for what she believes in, even when it has major consequences, and face deep loss while never losing herself in the process. It is her positive attitude, her integrity, and, perhaps above all, her constant fight for what is good and right, that drew fans to her character and keeps her in their hearts to this day.

Unfortunately, most of Ahsoka’s development takes place on the small screen, and fans looking for more about her story have fairly limited options. The novel Ahsoka by E.K. Johnston, released in 2016, provides an exciting look into her life between Clone Wars and Rebels, but otherwise, fans are mostly left to more minor mentions and Clone Wars tie-ins.

If you love Ahsoka, these books will bring you even exciting adventures and chapters in her storied saga!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Written by

The Star Wars: The Clone Wars novelization follows the plot of the film that kicks off the Clone Wars TV series. The book documents the first meeting between Anakin and his padawan Ahsoka, and their quest alongside Obi-Wan to rescue Jabba the Hutt's missing son.

Across the galaxy, the Clone Wars are raging. The Separatists, led by Count Dooku, the onetime Jedi and now secret Sith Lord, continue to press forward, and more and more worlds are either falling, or seceding and joining the cause. Under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic heroically battles on, championed by its huge army of cloned soldiers and their Jedi generals.

Anakin Skywalker, believed by some to be the prophesied “Chosen One” destined to bring balance to the Force, is now a Jedi Knight under the tutelage of his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Death is a constant possibility–and his chances of survival aren’t improved by the unexpected arrival of an apprentice: Ahsoka, a brash, inexperienced fourteen-year-old Padawan apprenticed to Anakin. But there’s no time for Anakin to question his latest orders: He and Obi-Wan have been assigned a new mission, and failure is not an option.

Jabba the Hutt’s precious infant son has been kidnapped, and when the frantic parent applies to the Jedi for help, it falls to Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and their clone troops to track down the evidence and retrieve the missing Huttlet. And more is at stake: For a grateful Jabba just might allow the Republic access to the Hutt-controlled space lanes that the Grand Army desperately needs in order to beat the Separatists into submission.

But the Republic is not the only power that craves access to those space lanes. Count Dooku, determined to win the prize for the Separatists, has set a trap for the Jedi. When they find the Huttlet, they will also find Dooku’s master assassin, Asajj Ventress, and countless legions of battle droids waiting to spring a trap.

The Clone Wars are being fought on many fronts, battles between Jedi and Sith, Republic and Separatists, clones and droids, good and evil. Just how far are the Separatists willing to go to achieve victory? On the planet Lanteeb, Obi-Wan and Anakin track down a scientist developing a catastrophic biological weapon for the Nemoidian Lok Durd. The story is an excellent addition to the drama of the drama of the Clone Wars because of the massive threat of the bioweapon, the personal moments between Obi-Wan and Anakin, and the inclusion of characters like Ahsoka. The Clone Wars novels are very accessible to fans with all levels of prior knowledge. You don’t have to have seen a single episode of the tv series or have read any other Star Wars books to be able to enjoy this. The Clone Wars Gambit books, Stealth and Siege, form a two-part story arc.

On the Outer Rim, the planet Lanteeb has no strategic value, no political power, and one enormous problem: It has been invaded by an emboldened Separatist Alliance. To find out why, Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have snuck onto Lanteebe and now look oblivion in the eye.

Hiding their lightsabers beneath their dusty disguises, Anakin and Obi-Wan draw on their Jedi skills to stay one step ahead of Lok Durd's droid army on Lanteeb. The Jedi know that a captive scientist has given Durd the keys to a terrifying bioweapon. Durd knows that the Jedi are on his planet.

With Yoda calling on the powers of the Jedi Council, with a new Separatist technology jamming the Guardians' communications, and with a traitor at the heart of the Republic's government, the wheels of war are turning. But the Separatists have blockaded Lanteeb. The finishing touches are being put on a weapon to destroy whole worlds. And it will be up to the two Jedi Knights and their most trusted comrades to liberate Lanteeb or forever suffer the consequences.
