Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #3: Paragon, by John Jackson Miller

Finally, there's some action in this ebook series! Lost Tribe of the Sith is a series to provide back story for the new Fate of the Jedi books. "Paragon" is the third installment.

All Star Wars fans know that if you leave two Sith in a room only one Sith is going to come out. The same is true of the crashed Sith on Kesh - their numbers are slowly dwindling, cut down by mainly by sabotage.

The native population of Kesh are now t

The further I get into this series, the more interesting it gets and the more I like it.

I like the fact that there are twists in this series as well, it keeps me from getting bored where I otherwise would be. It was interesting having this book follow Seelah and it brought her character into a new light, especially as at first she was presented as a spoilt, childish woman.

I find it quite interesting that so many SW fans seem to dislike the political aspects of this series (and of other series in
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

I'm a bit torn about my feelings about this series. On one hand, I relish the thought of reading new adventures set in the Star Wars universe. However, I really don't find any of the characters interesting and find that the humanized version of the Sith are paltry replacements for the likes of Darth Maul, Darth Bane, Darth Sidious, and their ilk. Truth be told, I like my Sith Lords wicked, ruthless, and downright EVIL!

Although it's kind of clever to create a cast of Sith Lords who are more like
This is set a few years after the Sith crash landed in Kesh and they have now taken the place of the Skyborn in the Kesh people. The non-human Siths want to escape but Korsin know well enough that they are stuck on this planet forever.

So Siths being Sith devised a plot to wipe out the native Kesh population but only to have the plan backfired and used by another person to get rid of the non-human Sith. At the same time Adari is beginning to see the true nature of the Siths and is planning a way
This one was a bit longer than the previous two, it almost had a plot.
I'm sure these would be better as a collected works, but that's not free. As it is I cannot find these books on any of the bookstores anymore. I guess that ever when they were free nobody wanted them.

Good installment

Better than the second story. not I understand the twist at the but entertaining none the less. Looking forward to the next one.
Things are heating up in this series. Until now, it seems like John Jackson Miller was kind of setting the scenario, but now we're starting to get a little more conflict, which is what Star Wars is really all about.

The writing is solid, but sometimes the actions of the characters or their motivations are a little difficult to understand. It could be because I was reading it really quickly, but I would imagine it is due more to the format: short e-books don't lend themselves well to deepening the
Paragon, I must admit, impressed me. While very little happened in the first two entries of this series, this one actually had a lot going on. There are a couple of twists and a cliffhanger ending that has me excited to read the conclusion. I didn't even mind the main character switching again, as following Seelah actually made her an enjoyable character. It's made me excited to see who the main character of the conclusion will be.

While this entry was quite exciting, it relies heavily on the set

Working my way through the taut tales. Enjoyed this segment very much. Anxious to see where it leads.
This series is improving as it moves along. This third volume, Paragon, adds a characteristic Sith touch to the story, as well as yet another POV from a different character, the widow Seelah. By now, the Omen has been marooned on Kesh for 15 years, but the Sith are still hoping to get off the planet. During this time, many changes have come to the native Keshiri, some good, some not.

Paragon is the longest of the ebooks so far, taking a bit under an hour to read and enjoy. It accomplishes its ta
Up until now, I have interpreted the Sith on Kesh as a nationality or a culture, but in this eBook story Seelah is definitely attempting to take them in a more sinister route. And the ending suggests that Adari is beginning to realise this.
I like the way the story is progressing throughout the Ebook series. It still doesn't feel overly like it belongs to the Star Wars universe, the references aren't in your face and so far I think this is a series that even Star Wars dislikers would enjoy purely
Plot: The plot in this one was much more intense. It kept me more interested than the past ones, but I still felt like it was too short.

Characters: The characters didn't change much from the past books.

Setting: The place they are at is the same, but they did move around a little and reconstructed their buildings.

Overall: I feel like this series is being hurriedly put together. I don't dislike it, and I do plan on finishing it, but I wish the stories from book to book flowed together better.
Il y a maintenant 15 ans que les Sith sont sur la planète Kesh. Il y exercent leur domination depuis ce temps. Malheureusement, une étrange maladie commence à décimer la population native de la planète. L'inquiétude des Sith apparait lorsque les leurs commencent aussi à mourir.

Voilà une courte histoire intéressante. Ce n'est pas ce qui s'est fait de mieux de Star Wars mais lorsque c'est donné, pourquoi trop s'en plaindre. Comme les deux précédents tomes, les ebooks sont disponibles gratuitement.
I'm not even sure what to say about this. I could guess what was going to happen, but the story was still told well enough that I didn't mind. It's almost painful reading this though...reading about the terrible things the Sith do. But I guess that's something I have to get used to if i'm going to be reading this series now. I guess the hard thing about this story arch is that there are no good guys. No Jedi to make the world right. No big battle of good vs evil. Just evil.
Shawn Fairweather
Similar to Skyborn, Paragon starts off with some pretty stationary filler however after the first 2 chapters, things start happening. The suspense continues to build nicely and has turned this series into a bit of a suspense thriller that is getting harder to put down. The storyline does seem to be a bit too simple for a Star Wars piece. At times I do miss some of the complexity that occurs in some of the other stories. Still worth reading though.

This is back to being on the same level as the first one was, I found it interesting but not all that great. It took me a second to realize the time skip at the beginning so I was a tad confused, but then after that it became kind of tedious. It also moves to slow in some areas and then too fast in others. I do with that they had more substance so that the characters could be more relate-able. It was interesting reading about Naga Sadow and such though.
Ash Thames
This book picks up the pace again as you start to see the plans within cunning plans that are characteristic of the Sith. Each has their own ideas of living on the planet Kesh as welk as their own ambitions. We are able to see the result of the struggles here and a glimpse into future plans of this new Sith place.
This was more a tense read than an exciting one, as it promises more self serving machinations to be read in the next story.
These ebooks are getting slightly better. That is mostly because they are building off the first two so it finally feels like there is some consistency in what is happening. Still, each one is so short that you can't feel that involved in the characters and time moves very quickly in the series so there isn't that much time to get attached to anyone. But at least some things started happening in this one.

Actually liked this one quite a bit. Imagine a whole society based on the treachery of the Sith of Star Wars. And I do mean treachery. Plans within plans within plans. The plot actually got very interesting in this one. It's too bad it took two books to get to this point. Keep on keepin on with them. It's actually worth it so keep on reading.

It is 15 years after the ship Omen crashed on a remote world and the Sith are still struggling to find a way home. Suddenly, whole villages are dying off without any apparent reason. Are they they dying from natural causes or is someone responsible?

A free ebook, downloaded through Kobo.
I would say - you can add up all "The lost Tribe of the Sith" books to the length of a real book.
After every book (4 Chapter) is a sneakpeak for other StarWars Books, that is about 1/4 of the lenght of the tribe book. So I have the feeling these are mainly advertiser books for the other ones!
15 years after the Sith spaceship, Omen, has crashed on the planet Kesh. Yaru Korsin, the Sith commander, has established his people on the planet but a faction within the Sith are restless to try to leave for space. Meanwhile cities and native populations succumb to a unknown plague.
The series starts to pick up here. I had almost decided not to continue with them, but now I'm drawn in and eager to see how it progresses. I'm so used to reading Star Wars from the "lightside" point of view. But these are Sith and they are indeed Sith. Moving on to the next one....
The books seem to be getting a bit better, but I'm still having a hard time reading them because they're so choppy. Also, I seem to get to an interesting part and suddenly it's done. It's like the focus is on the "small stuff" rather than on the real action.
Arlene Kellas
I still don't like how the series is broken up. it should be one book. This was a short story, but so far one of the best.

The deviousness of Seelah in this book is addicting. The twist at the end completely caught me off guard.
