So here's the deal on this collection: they needed an antagonist or antagonists for Luke and his New Jedi Order to face in the aftermath of the Legacy Of The Force arc of novels. And of course these villains should be Sith, because that's how it works (not knocking it, just sayin'). But how? Bane's Sith are destroyed, dead with Palpatine and Vader, as are all the Executers and Dark Jedi that served Palpatine's cause. Lumiya's splinter sect are also destroyed, dead with the Dark Lady and her appr ...more

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 bo

So looking forward to this there is sopposed to be one final story with the collection.
Also look out for the comic book series based after the book series.

Precipice is well written. It starts with a bang, creates tension, escalates, and leaves the reader interested and wanting more. The characters are easy to invest in and genuinely likable. This strength is also a problem, however. This is supposed to be about a lost tribe of Sith, not angels. These are supposed to be the bad guys. Therefore, they have to be easy to invest in, but not necessarily likable. Because of the brevity required for the story, it also feels rushed, moving instantly from o ...more

This series of novellas is an interesting spin on the Star Wars universe. By creating a “lost tribe” of Sith on its own planet with no contact with the rest of the galaxy, the author examines the nature of a society run completely on the principles of the dark side. There are no battles with Jedi and no exposure philosophies of “good.”

Of course, this is pure “fun” fiction and is not intended to hold up to any serious scrutiny. So with that in mind, I would tag this a good summer read.
Adam
I was a bit wary to read Lost Tribe of the Sith after the disappointment of Knight Errant, but it seems like that was the only subpar work Miller has done for Star Wars. Lost Tribe began as a series of e-books, stand-alone stories that are peppered across more than a millennium of history. It feels microcosmic despite its vast temporal sweep, since there are only three species involved, and not even one full planet. Aside from its role in the Fate of the Jedi, which I don't really think is worth ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed the Lost Tribe!! It took a while to get going, but once it did it didn't stop! It jumped time periods between stories, and I think that gave the reader a great sense of perspective. The truth that we as readers see from Korsin's vantage point is warped over time until almost nothing is as it was in the beginning. It was like reading the history of a real people, and I absolutely loved it.
Zane Marshall
I found the Lost Tribe of the Sith stories to be incredibly entertaining. Not only did they carry on the mythos and culture of Star Wars as a whole in the stories, but they managed to create one of their own on the planet they crash on, Kesh. A collection that spans ages for a civilization far removed fron where they originated, this book is stellar for anyone.

Ever wonder what kind of society would evolve with only Sith? Here is your answer. Check out my full review here: Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith

Predictable But Entertaining

I enjoyed reading these short stories but each seemed a little too predictable (which can be fun). Each story is the perfect length for some short reading before going to bed. The story as a whole is nothing great. Individually, the stories are entertaining but very predictable. This is not a book to read if you are looking for Sith philosophy. There is also nothing in this book that links it to the Saga. There are a number of character and all with new names which ma

Interesting twist

Before starting this review, there are a few things I would like to address about this book. Lost Tribe of the Sith: the Collected Stories was meant to be back-story for the Fate of the Jedi book series introducing this “Lost Tribe” and revealing its history leading up to its eventual meeting with Luke Skywalker. This book covers the tribe’s history between 5000 and 2975 years before A New Hope, condensing roughly 2000 years of time into one novel. Given these facts, it’s easy to tell Miller had ...more

I was a little unsure of how a series of short stories would go. In fact, I was only planning to read one or two and then move on to something else, returning periodically to read another. However, once I got into the book, I just kept reading!

The premise reminded me of my favorite TV show about a group of eclectic people getting stranded somewhere and having to build their own society ("WAAAAAAALT!") The difference is that these people are Sith and follow Sith ideals. These stories turned out t

This book was a collection of short stories and one final story telling the ending of the tale. It took place over three time periods in the planet Kesh's past (Meaning BBY)

These first four books of the collection take place around 5000 years BBY (Before the Battle at Yavin). 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

John Jackson Miller's Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories begins 5,000 years before the Battle of Yavin (in other words, before Luke Skywalker blows up the Death Star in A New Hope) and tells the story of the early years of a group of Sith who will cause trouble for Luke and his fellow Jedi 43 years after the Battle of Yavin.

Kind of a lousy marketing like scheme if you fell in the same boat as myself on this one. Lost Tribe is a collective work of what was orginally 8 novellas that at one time were free on the nook and Kindle and probably other forms of media as well. The final 9th installment called Pandemonium was suppose to come out in July of 2012, however the catch which was not mentioned was that it was only going to be released as part of the collective format and not on its own thus forcing all of us who hav ...more

For the past few years, the Star Wars Expanded Universe was largely focused on a series of novels collectively called “Fate of the Jedi”. One of the major antagonist groups of the story was the so-called “Lost Tribe of the Sith”, which pretty much came out of nowhere, spawning the rather memorable Vestara Khai. It also introduced a compelling back story for the Lost Tribe, which was only marginally explored in those novels.

Concurrent with the main novels, however, a series of short stories were

As a "Star Wars" fan, it has always fascinated me how visionary George Lucas truly was when he created the original Star Wars universe. It was a fully-formed universe, with a history and philosophy and believable characters and events that didn't stop after the credits rolled. True fans knew that there were so many more stories to be told in this galaxy far, far away. Thankfully, we have authors like John Jackson Miller, who published nine e-stories set roughly 5,000 years before the events of t ...more

Better than I thought it would be.

I only heard of the Lost Tribe after reading the 'Fate of the Jedi' series and came away from those early books feeling like it was a cheap ploy to bring back a group of Sith to the modern galaxy. And though I still sort of feel that way, the author has done a really good job of fleshing out the backstory.

I really enjoyed the leaps through time and really felt like I was watching a culture with all of the traditions and legends being born along the way. It was v

Background: Lost Tribe of the Sith was originally released as a series of 8 eBook novellas from May 2009 to March 2012. A 9th, much longer final book was released along with the other 8 as "The Collected Stories" in July 2012. It was written by John Jackson Miller as a prequel to the "Fate of the Jedi" series of novels which was also being released during that time.

Lost Tribe of the Sith takes place across a period spanning over 2000 years. The first four books, the next two

Another reviewer wrote something that echoes my feelings with regards to the Sith, "...if the sith are so backstabbing and all about themselves, how do they manage to exist as a group without killing off all but one or two of them?"

Not really a fan of the EU books because most of them are nothing more than glorified fan fiction. However, I am interested in the Sith and their beliefs that I caved in and bought this book. Not bad. Not particularly good but I didn't expect it to be.

The Lost Tribe of the Sith is a series of short stories that were originally released as ebooks. Seeing as how I don't really read ebooks, I unfortunately missed out on them the first time around. Now they've all been collected and released as a paperback, for which I am quite glad. The Lost Tribe featured very heavily in the most recent series of Star Wars books: Fate of the Jedi. I do wish I had some of this back story while I was reading that series because I think it would have added quite a ...more

This is a collection of sequential short stories about a crew of Sith who crash land on a fairly primitive planet and have to then find a way to survive and thrive.

Each short story ended just as it was getting in to full swing. That was a bit of a tease, but it kept me reading.

I imagine this was all some set up to replenish enemies of the republic for future stories, so I'll allow the incompleteness of them.

It was a quick fun read.
Mark Kaye
I really Enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read the Fate of the Jedi Series which is set at the opposite end of the Timeline, but still ties in.

I read this book in stages, I was having an Old Republic reading marathon, which encompated the Old Republic series of books. This book being a collection of ebook, is set at various points around those books, spreading out over 2000 years. It was great to read it like this and the auther showed remarkably well how the facts can be distorted over a

This is one of the best Star Wars-related books that I've read. Nine separate stories taking place over 2000 years makes for a constantly fresh and rotating cast of characters. The plot is compelling and entertaining with few holes or lapses. Some Star Wars books I've read have had stale, repetitive writing, but Miller really knows what he's doing. I'm definitely interested in checking out the continuation of this Lost Tribe series in the comics, also written by Miller.
Sharla
As is obvious from the title, this book tells how the Lost Tribe of the Sith, which plays a prominent role in the Fate of the Jedi series, came into being. A series of interconnected short stories, this book was entertaining enough, but it wasn't particularly complex, and some of the writing wasn't great. But it was good enough!
Jeffrey Newman
John Jackson Miller has quickly become my favorite EU author. After enjoying Kenobi, I quickly breezed through this unique story of Old Republic-era Sith. While I wish it would have gone more into Sith lore, it was an interesting change of pace in the EU.
Sascha
First I read the (formerly?) free first eight short stories and questioned myself if I should buy the book just for the last story.
Two reasons for buying this book:
- The story arc starts really slow, but becomes better. In my opinion, the last story is the best one.
- The last story is about four times longer than the other stories and fills about 1/3 of the book.
Daniel
I wanted to like this collection of e-books, but, I couldn't. The stories were not very interesting, and went nowhere. There was one exception: the story where a Jedi and Sith fall in love. Again, though it went nowhere, and they author didn't really tie it into any of the latter stories.
Diana
More like 3 1/2 stars.

It was a tough read to get through for much of the book. Unless you do your research or are a huge Star Wars geek, you don't understand where in the timeline this takes place at all. And the stories jumps around a lot in order to cover 2000 years of the history of this lost tribe of Sith.

That aside, once I had done my research and had gotten used to jumping around, I was able to see the overall picture and allow myself to be pulled in by the stories.

The world building was d
