This is the synopsis from Amazon:
Don’t miss STAR WARS: LOST TRIBE OF THE SITH: PRECIPICE a FREE original e-book short story, the first in a series that tell the untold story of the FATE OF THE JEDI's forgotten Sith castaways, their battle to survive, and their quest to re-conquer the galaxy! PRECIPICE includes an exclusive excerpt from STAR WARS: FATE OF THE JEDI: OMEN (Del Rey Hardcover, available June 23rd) and offers a unique look into the backstory of events that will begin to unfold in OMEN. SURVIVAL—NOT SURRENDER For the ruthless Sith Order, failure is not an option. It is an offense punishable by death—and a fate to which Commander Yaru Korsin will not succumb. But on a crucial run to deliver troops and precious crystals to a combat hotspot in the Sith’s war against the Republic, Korsin and the crew of the mining ship Omen are ambushed by a Jedi starfighter. And when the Sith craft crash-lands, torn and crippled, on a desolate alien planet, the hard-bitten captain finds himself at odds with desperate survivors on the brink of mutiny—and his own vengeful half brother, who’s bent on seizing command. No matter the cost, Korsin vows that it will not be his blood and bones left behind on this unknown world. For the way of the Sith leaves little room for compromise—and none for mercy.
My review: 3 stars
Plot: This book was pretty confusing at first, honestly. I spent most of the time trying to figure out which brother was currently being talked about, and less on the story itself. It was pretty good though.
Characters: I liked how the author made it clear how heavy the anger was between some of the characters, rather than being pansy characters.
Setting: The story starts on the ship, but ends up on the new rock they had never been to. It creates suspense and intrigue.
Overall: This book is definitely not stand alone. The ending doesn't even get explained until about halfway through the next one. If you plan on reading this series, expect to read them all.
