an enjoyable book - about a remote tribe of Sith from long ago
on 27 January 2017
This is a well-written collection of stories about a 'lost tribe' of Sith - consisting of 8 short stories and one lengthier novella, all by author John Miller (who's also written the very good Star Wars: A New Dawn). Each tale is connected, and the adventures are presented in chronological order. The first story is set some 5,000 years prior to destruction of the Death Star by Luke Skywalker. And the final story takes place around 3,000 years before that event. As such, this book focuses of the distant past - as compared to the original Star Wars trilogy of films. Consequentially there's no Darth Vader or Han Solo or Obi-Wan Kenobi. Instead, we enter a remote era when the galaxy was divided between the Old Republic and the Sith Empire.
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.
