Book Beginnings May 10, 2013

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void by Tim Lebron.

She is a little girl, the sky seems wide and endless, and Lanoree Brock breathes in the wonders of Tython as she runs to find her brother.

This is a very unusual beginning for a Star Wars book because it begins with a child. The books deal with adults mostly. A couple of the books have dealt with pre-teens, but most don’t.

The other thing that is interesting about this sentence is that it references a world that doesn’t appear in any of the Star Wars books. Tython doesn’t play a part in the Star Wars universe proper. It’s almost a lost world which is surprising considering the fact that it doesn’t appear to be overly far from Coruscant. The earliest world that I had heard that housed Jedi was Ossus. So I’m looking forward to learning about the founding if the Je’daii Order.
