It is always difficult to write a book reveal without giving too much away!
With Star Wars: Lords of the Sith written by Paul S. Kemp I found that this really is a very well written and enjoyable book.
It focuses on the two most powerful Star Wars villains, the Emperor and Darth Vadar, and takes place after Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith and sets up future and ties in past events. It bridges the prequels and the original trilogy.
The story takes place in the backdrop of Ryloth. It truly explores the creation of Lord Vader transition from Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker and the developmental stage yet delicate and powerful symbiotic relationship between the Sith Master, Darth Sidious and his Apprentice
Kemp tells of their character well and how their reliance on each other is paramount to survive the trap set out for them.
There is a lot of action from the start and makes this book a great read for all Star Wars fans. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but truly a great read from the ‘Dark Side’.
