A starship carrying hundreds of Sith is involved in a hyperspace accident, and is flung across the galaxy - crash landing on an unknown world. Unfortunately no one comes to help ... and the survivors must fend for themselves, with dwindling supplies and very little working technology. Against the odds, some Sith capable to living in the hostile environment they're forced to endure. And, over time, these Sith become masters of this world - cut off from the civilised systems elsewhere in the galaxy.
Each tale was originally released as a short e-book. As they were very popular, they were re-released as a collection - published in print. If you're a fan of Star Wars, and you especially enjoy adventures involving the dark side of the Force, then I highly recommend this book.
I read this book in stages, I was having an Old Republic reading marathon, which encompated the Old Republic series of books. This book being a collection of ebook, is set at various points around those books, spreading out over 2000 years. It was great to read it like this and the auther showed remarkably well how the facts can be distorted over a 2000 year period.
Other than the very beginning this book doesn't effect anything in the Old Republic time, so it could be read as a prequel to the Fate of the Jedi Series. I am just sad enough to read it the way I did. For me personally it added to the book, as it took even longer than normal to read.
Anyway. A trully awesome read. Can't wait to get into more of the authers work, and the Fate series.
The story is really interesting, focusing on a group of Sith miners who find themselves stranded on the planet of Kesh. The books jump forward in time from 25 to 1,000 years, detailing the changing state of the Sith tribe on the planet.
I particularly enjoyed Purgatory and Sentinel which focus on the controversial relationship between Ori Kitai, a Sith High Lord's daughter, and a human slave named Jelph. Unfortunately I lost interest a bit during the next book, Pantheon, set 1,000 years in the future and by which point the tribe's hierarchy structure has fallen into disarray. I felt it picked up a bit during Secrets and the finale, Pandemonium, only ruined in part by the particularly annoying character of Korsin Bentado.
Anyway, in summary certainly worth reading :)
It was a good addition to the Star Wars mythos and recommended to all fans of Star Wars.
I would also recommend Fate of the Jedi (the lost tribe ties into the Skywalker story) and all Old Republic books (including Bane Trilogy)
Still good though
