  • A MUST-READ for all Star Wars fans!
  • Episode III raises, at least for me, a lot of questions (about Palpatine). Questions such as the following two bullets.
  • A Sith among a complete Jedi Order?
  • Is the ability to control death real or was Anakin just believing all the gibberish Palpatine fed him?
  • It adds a new character to the universe, and also adds to your personal knowledge of the Sith and their rites.
  • This could actually be a TV series or movie set before Episode I. I prefer a TV series of max. 2 seasons though.
  • The author provides us with a lot of details which I really enjoyed.
  • It does not only help the story, but it ‘enhances’ your view of the whole galaxy.
  • The above is maybe only applicable to the Star Wars fans.
  • Some (murderous) scenes are described as they are THAT common, such as the killing of a whole family. However, for the Sith it (probably) is.
  • This gives you sometimes a weird feeling, but a feeling that makes the book that much better, and an intense experience.
  • More than once I tripped over a word, due to the fact that English is not my first language.
