There is less to be said about main antagonist Count Denetrius Vidian. His reputation as an inspirational, managerial speaker who makes regular HoloNet appearances is more interesting, frightening, and creative than the fact that he is also a Darth Vader-style cyborg. A New Dawn has a cast that is diverse and entertaining, and a fast-paced story for those characters.

Star Wars Rebels. You are here: Home Books. Den of Geek US. The characterisation was poor. The majority of females reacted like teenagers, the bully turned annoying very quickly, the captain was a disappointment. And to be honest, the countless crew members felt all the same and I just gave up trying to remember who was who after a while. Oct 13, Zhugenaut rated it it was ok Shelves: science-fiction.

The main character, the Admiral, is too powerful in term of technology related skills including teaching them. Un fortunately those skills are suitable for the new era he was forced to live after centuries of cryo sleep. He is many times pictured to fix numerous issues in a space ship and lecturing the crew about their ship technology. The book is too focused on details about speculative technology and science, also on how the Admiral is using the magic-like replicator to produce spare parts The main character, the Admiral, is too powerful in term of technology related skills including teaching them.
The book is too focused on details about speculative technology and science, also on how the Admiral is using the magic-like replicator to produce spare parts and then installing them while explaining them to the crew. I wish the author didn't spend too much time in these scenes.
This tendency is repeated in the next four books in the series. In brief, this book is extremely slow paced, not recommended for impatient readers.
I wanted to give it only one star, but I like the genre in general, and because it's written by a self published author, I added one more star. I just got this book and I'll admit the preview made me question if the book was worth buying. The only reason I decided to buy was because the book series already has a couple more novels; as a fast reader that made it worth the risk. The main storyline is given in the synopsis but the book starts with very little background and spares little time to set the scene as it were. The first third of the novel was jumpy and seemed to be a mash-up of cliched characters and very little background.
By I just got this book and I'll admit the preview made me question if the book was worth buying. By the end of the novel I think things got a little more fleshed out and I was satisfied with how things turned out but overall the book needs an editor and maybe a little more gritty real world feel.
It felt like a fairly standard sci-fi script good guy won and yada yada yada.. I think a few scenes and the ending show promise for the author and I plan to buy the next book to see where this goes but overall its not going to be a book I reread or recommend as anything other than a time filler for sci-fi fans.
Dec 12, Sonic Rainboom rated it did not like it. If ever a book needed a copy editor, it's this one. Mar 30, Bruce Brachman rated it really liked it. Excellent characters, logical science and a really intricate future. The universe created by Chris is rich and has a long, substantial back story. All good reasons for the Admiral to be where he is and do what he does.
Star Wars: A New Dawn Review
A terrific first book in a series that makes you want to hear more about the Admiral's adventures. I hope this series goes on for years. Mar 25, Mrducking rated it liked it. Edit this properly, especially the first two thirds of the book and you have in your hands a solid 4 stars book.
