Book Description

At last in one volume the eight original installments of the epic Lost Tribe of the Sith eBook series . . . along with the explosive, never-before-published finale, Pandemonium—more than one hundred pages of new material!
 
Five thousand years ago. After a Jedi ambush, the Sith mining ship Omen lies wrecked on a remote, unknown planet. Its commander, Yaru Korsin, battles the bloodshed of a mutinous faction led by his own brother. Marooned and facing death, the Sith crew have no choice but to venture into their desolate surroundings. They face any number of brutal challenges—vicious predators, lethal plagues, tribal people who worship vengeful gods—and like true Sith warriors, counter them with the dark side of the Force.
 
The struggles are just beginning for the proud, uncompromising Sith, driven as they are to rule at all costs. They will vanquish the primitive natives, and they will find their way back to their true destiny as rulers of the galaxy. But as their legacy grows over thousands of years, the Sith ultimately find themselves tested by the most dangerous threat of all: the enemy within.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Fate of the Jedi novels introduce readers to a hidden Sith society, living apart from the rest of the galaxy for five thousand years. But how did they come to be? Lost Tribe of the Sith answers that question. Spanning millennia, this series of short stories introduces the original unlikely castaways -- and shows how their society was shaped.

Lost Tribe of the Sith - The Collected Stories
includes the original eight short stories, plus Pandemonium, and all-new novella -- and, for the first time, maps of the world the Sith are stranded on. The chronicles of the Lost Tribe continue in a new comics series from Dark Horse -- but they all begin here!

About the Author

John Jackson Miller is the author of the national best-selling novel, Star Wars: Knight Errant, ten Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic graphic novels, and Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith - The Collected Stories. His comics work includes writing for Iron Man, Mass Effect, The Simpsons, and Indiana Jones. Author of several books about comic-book history, he also runs the research website, The Comics Chronicles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ship of Sith on a three-parsec tour... July 25, 2012
Format:Paperback
In May of 2009, Del Rey and Lucasbooks launched the first in a series of ebook novellas detailing the story of a Sith starship's crew and their crash landing on the planet Kesh.

This series of ebooks detailed the exploits of what became known as the Lost Tribe, this group of Sith becomes marooned on a back-rocket planet circa 5,000 BBY. While it began as a tie-in to the Fate of the Jedi series, the Lost Tribe of the Sith stories developed into a very compelling set of stories in their own right.

Publisher's Summary:

At last in one volume, the eight original installments of the epic Lost Tribe of the Sith eBook series . . . along with the explosive, never-before-published finale, Pandemonium--more than one hundred pages of new material! Five thousand years ago. After a Jedi ambush, the Sith mining ship Omen lies wrecked on a remote, unknown planet. Its commander, Yaru Korsin, battles the bloodshed of a mutinous faction led by his own brother. Marooned and facing death, the Sith crew have no choice but to venture into their desolate surroundings. They face any number of brutal challenges--vicious predators, lethal plagues, tribal people who worship vengeful gods--and like true Sith warriors, counter them with the dark side of the Force. The struggles are just beginning for the proud, uncompromising Sith, driven as they are to rule at all costs. They will vanquish the primitive natives, and they will find their way back to their true destiny as rulers of the galaxy. But as their legacy grows over thousands of years, the Sith ultimately find themselves tested by the most dangerous threat of all: the enemy within.

To be honest, on the whole I enjoyed the Lost Tribe much more than I enjoyed Lovecraftian villain Abeloth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, good characters August 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit I was surprised how good this was. I didn't like Knight Errant (by the same author) at all. But this was a very enjoyable look at a completely different time and place in SW history. The characters were great, well-developed, with complex motives and behaviors even for the most nasty characters.
I haven't really taken to the new Sith-related books because the "evil" characters seem mostly to have such simplistic excuses for their behavior (beaten as a child, a simple "lust for power" with no real goal, etc). These stories, though shorter individually, have way more depth, not to mention more insight, wisdom, and humour.

The only criticism I have is they're too short! This is somewhat of a rarity these days, because too many authors want to make the climax a full third of the book, but some of the tales kind of end with a lot of exposition about how a situation is resolved, explaining how there was really something in the planning all along that makes it all work out. Still, it's skillful exposition, well written and making sense.

Overall, definitely a recommended read.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is the exact opposite of suck.... January 11, 2013
By Meegs
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THIS BOOK!!! So like most people I read the Fate series before this so I got a little taste of what it was to be on Kesh through the eyes of the Khais and others, with a touch of the history of the lost tribe. This book, though you know (had you read the aforementioned series) how it all ends up, but none of that could prepare you for the awesomeness contained in this collection. If you dig the EU pick this up, it will not disappoint.

Format:Paperback
Yaru Korsin and his crew on the ship, Omen, crash land on the planet, Kesh. At first, they think it will be no problem to return to their Sith mission in the stars, but quickly they realize that they are stuck on Kesh to stay. These series of stories cover the initial landing to a couple of thousand years later.

I'm not going to mince words: this is the best Star Wars book (or collection of short stories--whatever you want to call it) I've read all year. It has everything I love in a Star Wars book: great characters, interesting stories, a lush world, a setting that actually feels several thousands of years older than the one we see in the Original Trilogy. This book has its hiccups--the stories in the beginning are rather rough around the edges, and a couple of the stories don't seem to mesh with the overall storyline that great--but I haven't had this much fun reading a book since Timothy Zahn's Choices of One.

I was first introduced to John Jackson Miller via Star Wars: Knight Errant and its comic tie-in, Star Wars: Knight Errant, Volume 1: Aflame. You can read my reviews to get my full opinion of those works, but I felt that, overall, the stories just weren't very interesting and the writing wasn't very compelling. And, to be honest, I wasn't too thrilled about reading The Lost Tribe because of that.

But John Jackson Miller shows he can write with this collection of works. I feel there is more cohesion, overall, in the overarching story in these separate works, compiled into one novel, than there was in "Knight Errant" (with the minor exception of Ori and Jelph, whose stories aren't as critical as the rest--which doesn't mean they are pointless).
