Today, Suvudu.com posted a PDF version of "Secrets", the final chapter in John Jackson Miller's Lost Tribe of the Sith short story series. The stories serve as prequels of sorts to the Lost Tribe subplot in Del Rey's soon-to-be-concluded novel series Fate of the Jedi. Here's a description of "Secrets" from Suvudu:
Dark Lord of the Sith Naga Sadow has waged war against the Galactic Republic. The ship Omen, in service to Sadow during the Great Hyperspace War, was returning from a Lignan crystalmining expedition when she crashed on the remote planet Kesh. Stranded, with no communication and no way of contacting Naga Sadow and his forces, the ship of Sith warriors and mining crew are stuck on a world they do not know. The Lost Tribe of the Sith is born and John Jackson Miller’s tale begins.
In Secrets, two thousand years ago, Commander Yaru Korsin braved mutiny and desperation—and inspired his shipwrecked Sith tribe to rise up, seize, and dominate the planet Kesh. Now a shocking revelation about those legendary ancestors has thrown the Sith into turmoil, pitting one against the other in ever-growing clashes that could bring about their downfall.
With his city descending into chaos around him, unassuming archivist Varner Hilts sets off for the forbidden temple, home to the wreckage of Korsin’s ship, Omen. Outnumbered by ruthless Sith warriors with nothing to lose, Hilts knows it may be a suicide mission. But he has a hunch that Korsin left something behind, something hidden until such an essential time as now—one final piece of knowledge that could save the rulers of Kesh from themselves and set them once again on the path toward a glorious destiny.
