Pantheon Cover. Lost Tribe Of The Sith 4: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. Seelah, who wants to purify the race and is on the cusp of wholesale genocide. Ori, not-quite a Sith, not-quite a Jedi.
Hilts, a man more interested in history, who wants to keep his people together and learn about the past, even if it puts his life in harm's way. Edell, who enjoys building and creating more than fighting and killing. Quarra, who contemplates committing adultery and struggles to figure out her place. All these characters are vivid and well-written. All these characters engaged me and made me interested in their own story. A complaint I've had frequently with these pre-prequel Star Wars novels is that they don't feel as if they are thousands of years before "A New Hope".
This isn't true with Lost Tribe at all. I think setting back the technology, having the Tribe lose that knowledge as the years past, was excellent. I enjoyed seeing the Tribe through the years, seeing them having to use their wits to get out of scrapes instead of hopping on an airspeeder and whipping out a blaster.
About the only complaint I have in this entire book collection of short stories--whatever is that the first few stories are pretty rough writing wise. Scenes jump from one to the next with little to bind them together. Some of the wordplay was confusing, and I had to reread sentences over and over to figure out what was going on.
Also, it was a little challenging each time the story jumped in time. It took time to establish relationships with characters, to get a feel for the new surroundings and people and events. I cannot say enough good things about The Lost Tribe of the Sith. It truly is one of the best Star Wars books in recent history and showcases the true talents of John Jackson Miller. Now that I'm done, I'm more than a little sad to leave these people behind.
Hopefully, Miller will get a chance to go back and write more stories about these people. I would welcome the addition to the Star Wars world. Heartily recommend for Star Wars fans, either new to the franchise or old. Originally released as a set of eBook novellas, this is the complete volume of short stories. They are set between to years Before the Battle of Yavin. The first four: The next batch of stories were also really good, mentions of Revan was the perfect tease for the next book that I need to read.
The final batch were the weakest. I felt I would have enjoyed the last section more. The first six stories were really great though, maybe best to limit yourself to just one story a day for a better reading experience Jul 20, Captnaka rated it did not like it. Worst Star Wars book I have ever read and I've read a lot of them I felt it was poorly written and the plot was confusing.
Sadly, I'm not getting the 4 hours back that I spent reading this. Jun 14, Indru rated it did not like it Shelves: Couldn't finish it. Sorry, I just couldn't find myself enjoying anything he writes. He seems to be a bit better with Novels than Short Stories. This book Lost Tribe feels like something made out of pieces put together clumsily. Reading them as individual stories makes no sense, and reading them as a book makes a bit more sense but you get lost Couldn't finish it. Reading them as individual stories makes no sense, and reading them as a book makes a bit more sense but you get lost in the useless description and lack of action.
There's not to much happening in this book. There are some rivalries between characters, sexual frustration of one of the characters because he doesn't have sex with his wife anymore etc. I mean WTF? I don't need the characters bearing boring conversations once every three pages. I need a plot and that adventure "vibe" specific to Star Wars. The problem might be that all the action takes place in one single location, and it feels too stationary.
Then again, Andy Weir's The Martian is similar in that matter, and it's a great book. I'm thinking JJ Miller likes too much to describe stuff and develop characters, but dislikes action in itself. Action is the main thing that describes a story, you have to have a plot. This book has none. It only offers some background on the origin of the Sith, it can be read for historical reasons, if you want to know more about that, but if you seek fun, action, adventure - you won't get it.
I read three of the collected stories and I stopped, they were too boring for me. Then again, subjective opinion - some people might like it. Judging by the reviews, they actually did. Given more page space, I think the likes of Yaru Korsin and the crew of the Omen, and the other characters, could have been much more compelling and developed over a running series such as Miller had with KOTOR.

Jun 22, Khurram rated it really liked it. These are nice little stories as far as Sith go. The plot behind this is that a Sith ship called the Omen has crashed on a planet with stone age technology, and very low in Iron ore so Sith crew cannot make repairs to their own Ship effectively stranding them there.
As stated this book is a collection of E-books so effectively short stories. The first story is deals with the crash and leader ship of the "tribe".
At this point the These are nice little stories as far as Sith go. At this point the Sith are more worried about how they are going to be perceived by their current lord Naga Shadow as disappearing with his cargo. The two highest ranking officers realise that they will not get getting off the planet anytime soon. As far as Sith go The main character does not seem evil, apart from killing his brother and even that was pretty much self-defence. The next story is of one of the natives who accidentally come across the stranded Sith.
The story fast forwards 25 years the Sith have embedded themselves as the top of society, there is a bit of infighting that is normal for the self-destructive and racist Sith. Then we are taking to the revolution of an insurgence of the lower lords against the grand lord with the natives taking their own side.
Then we are taken years into the future of the Sith are there usual scheming selves. There is an appearance of a member of the Jedi Coven, dedicated to stopping the Sith for returning first seen in the Knights of the Old Republic comics.
Who has also crashed on this planet. All these stories lead up to the Sith destroying and restabilising their society, priorities and self-destructive tendencies. I decided to read the Legends books in chronological order instead of in publication order, which might not be the best approach. On the one hand, I have the story told to me in the right order, but on the other hand, I wonder if the stories will give too much away for future books. I dug in and read Asimov's Foundation series in publication order, which was the right decision, since reading earlier books would have ruined some of the suspense of the later books, since Asimov wrote of mysteries I decided to read the Legends books in chronological order instead of in publication order, which might not be the best approach.
I dug in and read Asimov's Foundation series in publication order, which was the right decision, since reading earlier books would have ruined some of the suspense of the later books, since Asimov wrote of mysteries that had yet to be solved in his prequels. Anyway, I now understand that this series of novellas is intended to create the antagonists for Legends of the Force, a series of books that actually falls near the end of the Legends Extended Universe chronology.
The thinking was that the Sith Lords had been defeated, and instead of bringing in a bunch of bad guys who had never been seen before, the publisher decided to create a lost tribe to serve as the antagonists for that series. Such was the birth of this book, which collects eight ebook novellas that told the story of that tribe.
I didn't know this until I looked it up when parts of the stories didn't make much sense. Precipice, the first novella, tells of a group of Sith who crash land on a hostile planet called Kesh. The group loses members to the native predators, as well as to mutiny, but it's indicated that they are unable to make contact with anyone to rescue them.
And of course, it's the Jedi who put the Sith into that position. Skyborn, the next novella, shows what happens after the crash, when the native population, still making the transition from mythology to science, discover the Sith.
The Sith take the opportunity to pretend to be the gods these people worship, as they come from the sky, and the Sith have crash-landed on their planet. Paragon is where the story begins to pick up speed, and highlights how these novellas don't really work as individual stories.
As chapters of a novel, they work well enough, but when you look at them separately, they don't have the cohesion of a single story. Characterization for the key characters is found in the preceding stories, including their motivations and names. The preceding stories serve as exposition, while the rest of the stories become more involved with plot.
Paragon is set fifteen years after the crash-landing, when the Sith have come to realize that they won't be leaving the planet.
An apparent plague overcomes one of the lake towns on Kesh, killing all the residents. It spreads to other lake towns, and the Sith become concerned over their own vulnerability. The truth devastates not only Kesh, but the Sith the race survivors, as well. Savior follows Paragon, ten years later, when the remaining Sith choose to move from their temple near their crash site to integrate with the Kesh.
The Sith are still revered as gods. It turns out there's an underground group of rebels who suspect or know the truth about the Sith, and hope to defeat them for good.
Seeing as how this story doesn't even mark the halfway point in this collection, you can guess how well that goes for them. The story then jumps ahead nearly 1, years for Purgatory. The Sith have settled in to the planet fairly well, establishing their own system to rule the planet. Unfortunately for them, their isolation isn't complete, as the story reveals an adversary in their midst.
Sentinel continues that story, highlighting an unlikely alliance between one of the discredited Sith and someone else living on Kesh. Pantheon jumps ahead another 1, years, this time showing the Sith's ceremonies, as well as their self-serving interests and how they will ultimately lead to the destruction of the Sith.
Oddly, the collection begin to take on a weird sense of humor at this point, even invoking some slapstick comedy. It's not a complete destruction, though, as Secrets shows, but a group of people who live only for themselves doesn't much guarantee the survival of the group as a whole.
Not until they find another reason to pull together a group, that is. Pandemonium is the last novella in the book, though it could be considered a novel all by itself. It comprises about a third of the entire book, and concludes the series of stories that have preceded it.

It jumps ahead about 25 years, and covers the events surrounding why the Sith decided to work together again. Knowing Sith, though, the only thing that will bring them together is an opportunity to destroy another group. Hence the name of the novella. I'm surprised that these novellas were originally released individually as ebooks, since many of them don't work as standalone stories. They seem to work better together as pairs, and even then, the pairs are part of a larger story that concludes with a story that was never available by itself.
It seems like the release schedule was more about marketing and I guess they all are, really , but it felt a little cheap, and besides, the stories themselves didn't stand out as great works.
I think the book succeeds in what it set out to do -- establish the lost tribe that would serve as antagonists much later in the EU -- but I didn't feel like the stories were all that good. The characters didn't seem fleshed out which, granted, could have been due to the length of the works , there seemed to be more telling than showing, and a lot of the action occurred off-screen, or between chapters. I can't help but feel like the events would have been better seen, though I will admit that the scope of this series of stories -- over 2, years -- prohibits too much detail.
So, I like it for what it conveys about the EU, but I can't say I was wild about the style, or the stories themselves. It seems like the idea was better than the execution, which I've heard can be said of a lot of the EU material. I look forward to when the stories return to being as good as their ideas.
Sep 19, Justin rated it really liked it. This book was a collection of short stories and one final story telling the ending of the tale. They follow the crew of the Sith ship Omen as it crash lands on an unknown planet called Kesh.
The surviving Sith then start to in fight and political intrigue themselves almost to extinction. The leader of the group This book was a collection of short stories and one final story telling the ending of the tale. The leader of the group, Commander Yaru Korsin, meets a native, Adari Vaal, of the planet and forms a sudo friendship with her. These were not bad. I had read them in the individual short stories a few years ago. The characters, even though they were Sith, were likable and you could follow them without getting bored.
And the subjugation and enslavement of the Kishiri was interesting watching it happen slowly to the point there was no other life for the Keshiri but to serve the Sith. These two books were my favorite of the whole collection. They take place approximately years after the first four books. The original characters are one with the force now so we meet a whole new collection of characters.
We learn how the Sith society has evolved over the milenium since their arrival. But what i liked most about this set was the characters. My two favorite characters in the whole collection. Through the two books Ori becomes an outcast and slave and joins up with Jelph. While there she discovers Jelph is actually a Jedi, stranded here like the Omen crew was years ago. By the end Ori, who was not a normal Sith, decides she would rather spend time with Jelph in the hills as a hideaway than fight him.
My disappointment was there was not much of these characters. And in the following section they were barely even mentioned. I wish we could have got more, or at least had a separate culture on Kesh form from the pairing of Jelph and Ori.
Pantheon These take place years after the Omen crew crashed on the planet Kesh. These were not all that great.
The Sith culture is crumbling and rather useless. They weren't bad by any means, just not my favorite part. Pantheon could have been skipped all together and you wouldn't have missed out on much.
Overall it was a good series of novellas, worth a read for any Star Wars fan! Apr 08, Katrin von Martin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Spoilers follow. In this tumultuous environment, Orielle Kitai, a Sith Saber, finds herself violently thrown from her privileged life when an assassination attempt on the Grand Lord is unfairly tied to her family.
Reeling from the shock, she retreats to the remote farm of Jelph Marrian, a human slave who specializes in fertilizer and seems to have no interest in improving his position or grasping for power. Though she initially plans to use this information to put herself back in the graces of the Grand Lord, Orielle begins to question if a life in the deceitful environment of Sith politics is what she wants.
The tribe is finally saved after another thousand years by an unlikely savior. Fortunately, he also discovers a second secret: Having reunited the tribe toward, Hilts is made Grand Lord and sets himself to figuring out how to get to this new land. It takes a couple decades, but his chief engineer, Edell Vrai invents ships that can navigate the vast ocean.
I loved how well these novellas characterized the tribe at different points in its existence. It would have been very easy for these stories to read like dry histories, but John Jackson Miller takes care to craft the political climate through his characters and their stories.
The stories are paced exceptionally well and flow steadily from one point to the next. It was difficult to put the book down when I got into one of the novellas because it was so easy to get lost in the story. The setting is fully established and realized which, combined with the fluid writing and compelling plot, makes for a very satisfying reading experience.
I was also very impressed by how well things in one era would link to events in another. Fortunately, a lot of events end up having consequences that stretch into future years. There are also smaller, but no less impactful instances of this throughout the collection and it all works to make the novellas feel very coherent. Going into this, I was especially curious as to how much it would feel like Star Wars. The Old Republic novels faced a similar battle and ended up varying in their success.
Like the best stories in this franchise, this one features an epic story told through individuals. Those coming in without any knowledge of the vast EU might find themselves a little lost in the time period and events.
They all feel very real with their strengths and flaws, and their journeys are fascinating reads. I have a personal preference for characters that lead relatively normal lives before being risen to something more, and this cast happily fits the bill. The real treat, however, was seeing how Miller reconciled the fact that these characters are Sith with the desire to make them complex and relatable. This is why I like books about the Sith so much: The characters in The Lost Tribe of the Sith walk that balance perfectly.
These are the types of characters I want to see in Sith novels…Hell, these are the type of Sith I want to see period. The Expanded Universe may have officially ended, but this book will easily be a shining point in it for me: Five stars.
It's Star Wars, so I'm predisposed to liking it. That being said, it's unlike any other Star Wars novel I've read before.
Set all on one world, and built up of several short stories rather like Asimov's Foundation , the book tells the story of a ship full of Sith marooned on a metal-free planet, with no way to escape after the wreck of their warship, through two thousand years. I like the idea of a Star Wars book that concentrates on the history and development of one planet, it's just that the It's Star Wars, so I'm predisposed to liking it. I like the idea of a Star Wars book that concentrates on the history and development of one planet, it's just that the Sith are not a compelling culture.
