Lost Tribe of the Sith: Skyborn
by John Jackson Miller

Published by Del Rey


Adrick's Rating:   3 out of 4


A Jedi ambush leaves the Sith ship Omen marooned on a remote alien world, its survivors at the mercy of their desolate surroundings and facing almost certain death. But Sith will no more bow before the whims of fate than they will yield to the weapons of their enemies. And Omen's cunning commander Yaru Korsin will let nothing keep him and his crew from returning to the stars and rejoining the Sith order's conquest of the galaxy. Murdering his own brother has proven Korsin's ruthless resolve -- but now an entire race stands in his way.

The primitive, superstitious Keshiri worship unseen gods called the Skyborn, shun science, and punish unbelievers with death. Branded a heretic the widowed young geologist Adari Vaal is running for her life. Among the mysterious Sith castaways she finds powerful sanctuary - and her saviors find the means of survival. With Adari as their willing pawn, the Skyborn as their Trojan horse, and the awesome power of the dark side of the Force at their command, the lost tribe of the Omen set out to subjugate a planet and its people - and lay the foundation for a merciless new Sith nation.



Adrick:

    The tale of the stranded Sith continues in Skyborn, which shifts the story’s point of view from the Sith captain to Adari Vaal, a native of Kesh. There is less action here than in Precipice, but Adari is an interesting character, and there are lots of intriguing hints about Keshiri mythology that should prove important in the Fate of the Jedi series.



Adrick:

    Adari Vaal's analysis of Keshiri culture seems awfully savvy for a native of such a “primitive" planet, but it makes for good reading.



Adrick:

    An abundance of dead husband issues.
