Secrets takes place right after Pantheon. The Sith are even in more turmoil. After realizing that they were a lost tribe, they lost all hope. Except for Hilts, who went in search of something at Omen. He believed that Korsin left something there specifically for a time like this. When he got to the temple, he found Illiana there already. They search for the secret, but people come in search of him and Illiana. They are running out of time because their pursuers are trying to destroy the tem
Better than some of the series. It did keep my interest better while reading it. I really can't tell if this is going to be the ending of the series or could really go either way. I'm fine with it ending the way it did, the ending was one of the best parts, but it also opens a whole other topic that could be pursued. We shall see, I suppose. :P

This one was even better then the last one, continuing story about Hilts and Lost Tribe of Sith, loved it!

Miller keeps the momentum going in my opinion. I find myself wanting to jump into the final book in the series. He has done a fantastic job of creating a continuous, yet sparsely separate centuries/millennia, story with characters that are believable and relatable.

This installment follows directly from the events in Pantheon. Varner Hilts and his trusted Keshiri apprentice, Jaye have made it to the site where Omen crashed more than two-thousand years earlier. Yaru Korsin's testament told his daughter Nida that the real power is behind the throne and Varner believes this to be the Captain's chair from Oman which was returned to the crash site.

When they arrive they find Iliana, the leader of the Seelah faction crouched and holding the skull of her long dead
What I don’t like about these books is their form – as short stories – what I mean is, that reading them as one book wouldn’t work for me because I want to take it sequentially and therefore I’d have to stop at one point and star another book because the last two stories are after some other books, at least according the time-line. And reading them as separate books is also not the same because they’re too short to build up some atmosphere and suspense, not a very good one, though I admit that t ...more

In this volume of the Lost Tribe of the Sith the tribe is distraught after finding out their ancestors were slaves and not the conquerors they believed them to be. The ripple efect of this revelation caused the Sith factions to turn on themselves and begin a race to extinction. Enter a researcher whose family has been disgraced enough that he becomes a researcher studying the ancient ruins of the Omen spaceship and its first settlers. While the Sith are destroying themselves from within he sets ...more

This is a nice end piece to the collection of short stories. It continues from the end of the last story with the Tribe in complete disarray.

This story does a nice job encapsulating most elements from previous stories and setting the Tribe up for a unified future. There is, again, more humor in this story than in previous, and the voice that's relating the story is engaging and compelling.

In general, most casual fans can skip this entire series, but dedicated fans, along with fans of the "Fate o

This final book was pretty good, and leaves the door open for another possible return to Kesh. That being said, there was enough closure that i feel there is no real need for another series.

Edit: I just discovered that this is NOT the final book. The 9th and final book will be released laster this month... wondering where they go with this.

This novella wasnt necessarily poorly written or uninteresting however it felt more like a set up to the final entry of Millers novella collection. The final chapter and epilogue pulled me back to the storyline far more than the first couple chapters of this work, and they have increased my interest even more so to read the closing entry.

A somewhat satisfying ending to the series and had enough action to keep me interested.

I'm still not too sure how I feel about the discovery at the end of the book. It reminds me of what they are currently doing on the manga Hunter x Hunter. It's good that it leaves room for further exploration but at the same time it would be nice to have a better closing.

Great book and great ending to the series. I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire season. This book is extremely short even when compared to the other books. The story has very little action but manages to bring the series to a great conclusion.

Sith are killing each other after learning the truth of how their ancestors came to Kesh. Varner Hilts manages to return to the spaceship, Omen, and finds information to unite them all and save themselves. A very dark series of Star Wars short stories.

Fairly dull ending to an otherwise solid collection of short stories. I can't help but think the author could have come up with a bit more punch for the final volume. I never felt very connected to the characters in the last two installments.

Realizing that Star Wars is a blend of SciFi and Fantasy. This series is an interesting back story and I like that each book draws on the previous but isn't a direct sequel. More of a jump through history.

+1 to the historians

I couldn't put it down. If you liked the previous short ebooks then you'll love this one. What a great ending treasure found beneath Korsin's throne.

This short story was really good. It tied up some loose ends from the series but left a lot open for more in the future. I hope that the author continues the series and doesn't end it like planned.

Not a bad book. It was a good conclusion to the the story and you can't complain too much when it's free.

Easily one of the best books in the series. Very suspenseful. And is leading up to some really great stuff.

The entire Lost Tribe of the Sith series was pretty good. It was an interesting unique story and I'm sure it will have significance in the coming Star Wars books.

About as good as the others in this series--I always enjoy a Star Wars story not focused on the movie characters or lore.

A very nice read, and the humor introduced in this part was very welcome and helped liven up some of the serious events. Very nicely done.

I love these Lost Tribe of the Sith novellas. My only complaint about these is that I wish they were all released together as a full length novel rather than several shorter books.
