Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Spoiler free: Lords of the Sith is easily the best novel in the new Star Wars canon to date. It doesn't quite reach the height of some of the old Expanded Universe now Legends novels like Darth Plagueis and Shatterpoint, but it comes close and is very promising if this is the direction Star Wars novels are headed.
The main characters on the "good" side show complexity, trying to stay on the right side of the thin line between freedom fighter and terrorist - the line between murder and killing an enemy. The Imperial cast is equally complex, showing the reader insight into their own drives and motivations, from the stalwart loyalists, self-centered power grabbers, the Emperor's personal guards, and a has-been moff.
The new canon has done a great job of increasing the diversity in Star Wars, and this is book is no exception. The female moff, in one sentence, is said to have taken a downward spiral after the death of her wife. That's it, one word switched from husband to wife, and the reader knows that we are now dealing with a moff in the Star Wars universe that happened to be a married lesbian.
However, the story does not revolve around this at all, and it never comes up again or distracts the reader from the story. To me, this is the perfect way to make Star Wars more inclusive in the 21st century - include diverse characters that reflect our modern life without needlessly writing stories about things like race and sexual orientation when they aren't central to the story.
I hope this trend continues. Now, on to what we all came for: Vader is a killing machine, constantly trying to guess his master's motivation behind his words and commands. On the other hand, Palpatine is always one step ahead of Vader, and seems extremely adept at predicting his thoughts. We get to see how Vader copes with his memories in a sad way. It leaves you empathizing with the character while you are simultaneously repulsed by his actions.
My only quibble is that Vader and Palpatine sometimes do things leaping, spinning, flipping, lightsabering that are a little extreme. I like to see the Force act in more subtle ways, and it can get a little video-gamey in this book. Well done! Paperback Verified Purchase. I grew up reading Star Wars books. I'll honestly admit that I was pretty irritated when they decided to wipe the expanded universe. This is the first of the new canon books that I've read so far, and I really enjoyed it. I'll go on record to say that the first encounter Vader has with the Free Ryloth movement is one of my favorite Darth Vader moments so far.
It's a perfect merger of a reckless Anakin adjusting to, and embracing, what he's become. Kemp does a good job of taking Vader from a fallen Jedi to a Sith Lord. He shows a pretty good vision of the relationship between master and apprentice, and even gives a good idea of how he handles Vader's conflicting views.
The way they're portrayed in the book is a great compliment to both trilogies without really relying on or the other too much. It even manages to tie some Star Wars: Rebels just a bit in the mix. I found myself confused on who I was cheering for, but that's not a bad thing.
Without giving away too many details, I'll just say that even though you know what's going to happen in the end since most of us have seen the Original Trilogy, it's a thrill-packed, truly intriguing, and intense story, that made it hard for me to put down! I considered giving this 4 stars, but I'll give it 5 anyway because it is good, even if the title is misleading.
This book is well written and has an interesting story to it and an interesting short story in the back. That said, the story is interesting and shows the galaxy beginning to rebel and there are a few Sith Lord scenes that are just amazing in their portrayal one of them is very, very early on. It doesn't really contribute much that's new to the new Canon universe, but it is a fun read that's worth the time spent on it.
Long live the Empire! As some reviewers mentioned, there are unforgivable, major inconsistencies - Vader igniting his light saber a few lines after he ignited it and then deactivating it twice in a row. Or a protagonist using his comm to keep in contact with people including one that was right besides him in the previous paragraph and is with him again a few lines later, having never left his side.
Although extremely irritating and an indication that the author did not or could not revise his work due to deadlines, that alone could be forgiven if the story was awesome or the author was a gifted writer. But the work is of mediocre quality and the author constantly uses the same images and formulas. The Empire faced several pockets of resistance including the Free Ryloth movement , led by the former Twi'lek freedom fighter Cham Syndulla. While Ryloth is a nominally independent protectorate, the planet is occupied by Imperial forces, who view Ryloth as a vital source of spice and slaves.
Meanwhile, Cham and his Lieutenant Isval are on a starship bridge when they receive word that their comrade, Pok , has stolen an Imperial freighter as part of the mission to hijack an Imperial weapons shipment. However, Pok's stolen freighter is being pursued by several Imperial V-wing starfighters , led by Darth Vader in his personal Eta-2 interceptor. Under Vader's orders, the pilots fired on the freighter's aft shields and disabled the ship's engines.
Vader then ejected himself from his starfighter , and boarded the ship by ramming his starfighter into the last remaining gun turret. Once aboard, Vader orders the squadron leader to escort the disabled freighter. He then makes his way through the ship and systematically kills the Twi'lek hijackers. Vader fights his way to the ship's bridge to personally kill Pok. Cham and Isval listen to Vader's murderous rampage aboard the freighter via intercom, and order their forces to return to Ryloth.
Reeling from the loss of his friend Pok, Cham decides to shift from "half measures" and attempts take out the Empire's leaders: Due to the disruption of Ryloth's spice trade, caused by the Free Ryloth rebels, the Emperor and Lord Vader have decided to accompany Senator Taa on an official investigative visit to Ryloth.
Following Taa's departure, the Emperor reveals to Vader that his visit was merely a ruse, and the real reason was to expose a traitor; one who has been leaking information to the Free Ryloth movement. Cham discusses this news with Isval via comlink. The two then decide to contact their Imperial spy Colonel Belkor Dray , to ascertain the reliability of this information.
If Belkor is aware about Vader and Palpatine's visit, Cham's first thought was that it would be a trap.
But if he is not aware, Cham sees it as a perfect opportunity to topple the Empire's leadership, and free Ryloth from Imperial rule. Meanwhile, Colonel Belkor visits Moff Delian Mors , the governor of Ryloth, who lives at a luxurious command center on Ryloth's largest moon. Belkor resents Moff Mors for her decadent lifestyle, indolence and her dealings with criminal elements like Nashi the Hutt.
During the visit, Belkor and Mors discuss the recent failed attempt made by the Ryloth rebels, who to steal an Imperial weapons shipment. The two discuss how deeply embedded the Free Ryloth movement is into the fabric of Twi'lek society. Belkor is aware of Orn Free Taa's upcoming visit and plans to arrange his assassination in order to discredit Moff Mors.
Later that night, Belkor travels for a secret meeting with Cham near Ryloth's cave network. Belkor is aware of Taa's upcoming visit, but does not know about the Emperor or Vader. During the course of the meeting, Belkor threatens to end his relationship with Cham and to release a data disk of all the movement's bases, and leadership in the event of his death.
However, Cham outplays the Imperial officer by threatening to disclose recordings of their previous meetings; thus exposing him as a traitor to the Empire. In the end, Belkor agrees to provide information to the Ryloth rebels in return for allowing Cham to using Taa's assassination to discredit Mors, and to boost his own political career.
Based on the information they could glean from their meeting with Belkor, Cham and Isval decide to proceed with their plan to assassinate the Emperor and Vader. Later, Isval travels to the Octagon , a district in the heart of the Ryloth city of Lessu. There, she encounters a Twi'lek escort named Ryiin and a drunken Imperial officer. After assaulting the Imperial officer, she spirits Ryiin away into a new home where she will be safe from the sex trade.
A former escort, Isval wants to save other Twi'lek girls from the sex trade. For the next nine days, Cham and his rebels including Gobi Glie , Xira , and Kallon prepare their trap for the Perilous. Their trap included space mines , and a swarm of former Separatist Vulture droids. Ten days later, the Perilous arrives in the Ryloth system with Vader and the Emperor at the helm.
Gobi and Cham quickly activate their mines which damage parts of the Star Destroyer. However, the shields are still up. Vader orders the Perilous to deploy its V-wing starfighter contingent.
In response, Cham and his team activate a second wave of mines which "bleed" the Star Destroyer's remaining shields. Gobi then deploys several hundred Vulture droids against the Perilous. A dogfight ensues with Vader flying his interceptor alongside the Imperial pilots. Despite the efforts of the Imperial defenders, the Perilous begins to take damage from the mines and Vulture droids.
The ship's guns are soon knocked out of commission. In addition, the Free Ryloth movement has put teams of operatives aboard three repair shuttles, which will board the Perilous in order to hunt down and kill Vader and the Emperor.
Meanwhile, Vader uses the Force to rip open the bellies of vulture droids and blow them up and their buzz droids cargo. At Cham's command, he puts out a call for all available Ryloth repair ships to render assistance to the Perilous. Belkor had also arranged for the ambush by diverting patrol craft and flight clearances in a way that allowed Cham to move his ships into position using Mors's authorization.
When contacted by Mors, Belkor feigns shock and dispatches repair ships to aid the Perilous. In secret, Belkor contacts Cham and expresses anger and shock that Cham is planning to kill the Emperor and Vader. Cham blackmails Belkor into helping him by threatening to expose his dealings with the Free Ryloth movement. With the Perilous stricken by the Vulture droid attack, Cham proceeds with phase two of the assault.
Isval and the other operatives board the Star Destroyer disguised as rescue personnel from the ship Repair Eighty-Three.
They make their way to the engine room and plant explosives and kill Imperial personnel. Vader deduces that there is a spy among Taa's crew with the Emperor ordering his men to confine Taa's staff to their quarters.
Vader intends to interrogate them once they reach Ryloth. Using the Force, Vader hunts down and kills several of the Free Ryloth infiltrators with his lightsaber. Vader then heads to the hyperdrive chamber where Isval and her team including Eshgo and Faylin drill charges into the hyperdrive slab. Vader uses his lightsaber to force his way into the hyperdrive chamber but Isval's team manages to escape.
Vader discovers the charges in the hyperdrive chamber and orders Captain Luigi to order an immediate evacuation of the Perilous. Despite being pursued by Vader, Isval and her team managed to escape on a stolen Imperial escort boat. Vader, the Emperor, and several Royal Guards manage to escape minutes before the Perilous blows up. With the Perilous stricken, Isval and her team continue their hunt for the Emperor and Vader amidst Ryloth's crowded space. Belkor also aids Cham by ordering Imperial forces to delay rescue efforts and to do a full scan of the area first.
Moff Mors learns about the Perilous ' s and develops a plan to shift blame onto Colonel Belkor in order to protect herself. While tri-fighters attack Imperial escape pods and Mors's transport, Isval and her team hunt for the Emperor's shuttle while corresponding with Cham.
Isval manages to avoid death by ramming her ship into the Emperor's shuttle. The impact damages both ships and they plummet into Ryloth's atmosphere. Vader manages to crashland the shuttle in Ryloth's equatorial forest. Several of the crew and guards are killed during the landing but Vader, the Emperor and two Royal Guards, the captain and Sergeant Erstin Deez , make it out alive. Vader and the Emperor see their situation as a test of their Sith powers.
While supervising rescue efforts, Belkor secretly resolves to kill the Emperor, Vader, and Moff Mors. Meanwhile, Isval and several of her fellow operatives survive the crash-landing but Eshgo, Drim , and Crost are killed. Isval vows to complete her mission to kill the Sith Lords so that her friends don't die in vain. Meanwhile, Cham and the surviving Free Ryloth ships fly to the night side of Ryloth to plan the next stages of their operation.
Cham has exhausted most of the Free Ryloth movement's resources in taking down the Perilous but is still determined to kill the Emperor and Vader. Cham contacts Isval and they decide to destroy the Imperial communications station on the equator to impose a communications blackout. Putting his plans into action, Cham contacts Belkor and tells him to allow an Imperial escort ship carrying Free Ryloth rebels to land at the Equatorial Communications Hub.
In return, Belkor gets Cham to transmit the trajectory of Moff Mors ship since he wants to ensure that his political rival is actually dead. After learning that another rebel team led by Nordon has located the Emperor's wrecked shuttle, Isval and her remaining team fly their escort boat to the equatorial communications station and proceed to bomb the station's communications dishes.
Their actions create a communication blackout which disrupts a Imperial efforts to rescue the Emperor, Vader, and Moff Mors. Vader and the Emperor use their dark side powers and Force lightning respectively to attack the freighters, causing them to crash into the forest.
Meanwhile, Moff Mors survives her crash-landing only to discover that her pilot Breehld did not survive the crash. Mors comes to suspect that Belkor had a hand in the attack on the Perilous and that the Colonel diverted her to rescue operations in order to prevent her from taking command and to kill her. At the base, Mors and Borkas go over the recent events and deduce that they have a traitor within their ranks: The two mobilize all available Imperial forces on Ryloth to find the Emperor and Vader and to foil Belkor and the Free Ryloth movement's plot.
Meanwhile, Isval and her team land their escort boat near Nordon's wrecked freighter; which had been downed by Vader and the Emperor. They discover that most of Nordon's team were killed during the crash and their bodies being devoured by large insectoid predators called gutkurrs. Isval and her team are attacked by the creatures and narrowly manage to escape back to their ship; losing four members. Elsewhere in the equatorial forest, Vader, the Emperor, and their two Royal Guards settle down in a forest clearing for the night.
While meditating with his master, Vader is still haunted by his past as Anakin Skywalker but resolves to put these memories behind him. Shortly later, the Imperial party comes under attack from a pack of lyleks , vicious apex predators native to Ryloth. In the skies above Ryloth's equator, Colonel Belkor leads a handpicked search-and-rescue team consisting of V-wing pilots whom he had managed to convinced that Moff Mors was the one conspiring with the Free Ryloth movement to bring down the Perilous.
Belkor is traveling in a small search-and-rescue recon craft with his pilot Ophim. Approaching the damaged Equatorial Communications Hub, Belkor learns from the acting base commander Captain Narrin that Moff Mors, Borkas, and a squad of stormtroopers have embarked on a rescue mission to find the Emperor and Vader. Belkor convinces Ophir that Borkas is part of Mors' conspiracy and orders his team to hunt down Moff Mors and her forces.
Meanwhile, Vader, the Emperor and the two Royal Guards fight off an entire horde of lyleks. At the Emperor's urging, the four retreat into a nearby tunnel and proceed to kill hundreds of lyleks in their path.
Later that night, Cham and Isval correspond with Kallon's team via intercom and learn that he has found the Emperor's shuttle. They find the bodies of several fallen Imperial personnel but see no sign of the Emperor and Vader. Cham and Isval vow to continue the hunt for the two Imperial leaders. Meanwhile, Belkor and Ophim's recon craft's ship sensors pick up Isval's stolen Imperial escort ship, Cham's native transport and a wrecked Imperial shuttle in the forest. In an attempt to prevent Ophim from discovering his dealings with Cham, Belkor shoots Ophim in the back of the head.
Cham orders Belkor to use his V-wings to hunt down and kill Mors. They also agree to trick the V-wing pilots into bombing Vader and the Emperor once they have closed in on them. Elsewhere, Mors and Steen's men continue their search and rescue mission at night.
Cham and Isval's team eventually stumble on the Sith Lords' trail but discover lylek footprints. They follow these footprints into the lylek cave where they discover that Vader and the Emperor have slaughtered the entire lylek horde. Following a long and grueling battle, Vader slaughters the lylek queen at the Emperor's command.
Sergeant Deez survives the battle but the Royal Guard captain is killed. Based on their encounter with the lyleks, the Emperor and Vader deduce that the Free Ryloth rebels plan to cut off the head of the Empire: As daybreak approaches, Cham orders his lieutenants including Faylon and Kallon to avoid direct contact with the Sith Lords. After emerging from the lylek tunnel, Vader, the Emperor and Deez encounter an adolescent Twi'lek girl named Drua.
The Emperor attempts to kill her with his lightsaber but Vader prevents it.
