THE STORY:
(5,000 to 2,975 BBY) A series of novellas (most originally published as separate e-books) which chart the fortunes of a group of Sith who crashland on a remote planet during the Great Hyperspace War and who, over the ensuing decades, centuries and millennia, shape the world around them into their own dark image. This book overall gives a significant background story to the Lost Tribe who go head to head with Luke Skywalker in the 'Fate of the Jedi' novels. There are three main time periods covered; the first (5,000 to 4,975 BBY) chronicles the Sith arrival on Kesh and their struggles to make a new home and society there, the second (3,960 BBY) tells of an unlikely romance amid a golden age for the Sith and the final time period (3,000 to 2,975 BBY) covers a time of chaos amid the Sith society in which it is reborn with new purpose.

WHAT'S GOOD:
Between 'The Old Republic' computer game and the 'Legacy' comics, I was a little frustrated at first by the introduction (in the 'Fate of the Jedi' series) of yet another long-lost/hidden Sith faction at large in the galaxy. However, the stories told here make these Sith unique and uniquely compelling. I genuinely enjoyed reading about characters who have to contend not only with a hostile new world but also with the violence and betrayal that sits at the heart of Sith culture. It is a curious thing when you find yourself thinking of some of these Sith as the heroes of the piece, despite their dark nature. However, I think my favourite element of the entire book was the revelation of Jelph Marridan's past. John Jackson Miller's background as a comic book writer serves him very well in telling these little vignettes of Sith life (unlike the effect it had on his novel 'Knight Errant').

I'm a huge fan of the Star Wars Expanded Universe (which may be changing drastically due to Episode 7) If your a fan of stories that revolve around the Jedi and Sith you can't go wrong. These collected stories are great and would recommend to any SW fan.

I would also recommend Fate of the Jedi (the lost tribe ties into the Skywalker story) and all Old Republic books (including Bane Trilogy)

I really Enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read the Fate of the Jedi Series which is set at the opposite end of the Timeline, but still ties in.

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.

When I first heard they were making a collection of short stories into a full sized novel, I thought "Yes!" This is the sort of thing I'd like them to do with other novellas and comics that are referenced in novels that I wouldn't otherwise read.

I was also looking forward to reading books set so far back in the timeline. The trouble with such short stories is you don't get much depth to the characters. It's all a bit rushed. I found as soon as I started to get a picture in my mind of what was happening, the story ended and I was propelled a thousand years into the future and had to start all over again.

Having said that, all the stories were entertaining in their own right and basically set the groundwork for the events of 5,044 in the future when the events of the Fate of the Jedi series take place. From that point of view, it's worth reading these before embarking on the Fate of the Jedi series.

These stories were well written and was very original in its plot. It proved to be unique and yet rewarding to read. I found first few books were fine but lost my way in the middle of the books. I then found the latter books to be very interesting and which confirmed my interest in the collection at the start! I was quite pleased with the books by the end story.
It was a good addition to the Star Wars mythos and recommended to all fans of Star Wars.

I'm reading the Star Wars books in time order, and so this was the second book that I read. Although the last three books in the series are actually set after The Old Republic series of novels, due to the story's nature there is no crossover.

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 :)
