Lost Tribe of the Sith Stories 1-6: Read Every Star Wars Novel in Chronological Order

Continuing on with my endeavor to read all the Star Wars books available, and in chronological order, my next six reads were the Lost Tribe of the Sith Stories by John Jackson Miller. These were freely available through Amazon, and each image links to the PDF available through StarWars.com. 

They were entertaining. I would have liked to see more character development, but I guess their brevity made that difficult. I was somewhat disappointed by generalities made in regards to certain characters actions; the suddenness with which they abandoned a lifetime of behavior. Yet overall, they gave me a significantly broader understanding of the Star Wars Universe. If you read them for the simple joy of immersing yourself in Sithyness, they are highly enjoyable.



"the purpose of being Sith was the exaltation of self. Every ensign an emperor. Every rival’s misstep, an opportunity."

 

A rock was a simple thing, but as her grandfather had told her, “By simple things, we know the world.” ( Loc. 137-138).


If failure was an orphan, success, for the Sith, was a secret love child. (Loc. 144-145).

The Sith were about glorification of self and the subjugation of others. (Loc. 254).


Unlike his wife, he had nothing against the crimson-skinned Sith, but factions threatened order. A homogeneous Sith people was easier to rule.(Loc. 30-31).  


Humility in a Sith. It was an amazing thing to witness, an impossibility. (Loc. 355).

He was a lone Jedi on an entire planet full of Sith. His existence threatened them—but their existence threatened everything. He had to stop her. (Loc. 477-478).


The psychic acid that coursed through the streets of Tahv was alive. It was everywhere. ( Loc.163).

“Supposed to do?” Jelph laughed. “You’re the one that always says you set your own course.” He waded toward her perch on the edge. “Just decide what you want.” ( Loc. 253-254).
