The ruthless cunning of the Sith Order has served the shipwrecked crew of the Omen well on the alien planet Kesh. Subjugating the superstitious Keshiri race by posing as its fabled overlords has ensured the Sith's survival—while they struggle in secret to return to the stars. But after fifteen years on their adopted world, some among the lost tribe have grown restless and...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

The characters are revealing more of themselves as the story progresses. With the Sith it is all about power and domination, not only over the native Keshiri but over each other. Seelah is taking it even farther by trying to "perfect" the way that the Sith look. I have disliked her since she was first introduced in Precipice and in Paragon she is so vile she makes my skin crawl. We find out more about her history and ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
While this entry was quite exciting, it relies heavily on the set ...more

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 ...more
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.
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.
This was more a tense read than an exciting one, as it promises more self serving machinations to be read in the next story.
A free ebook, downloaded through Kobo.
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!
