Lost Tribe of the Sith: Purgatory
by John Jackson Miller

Published by Del Rey


Adrick's Rating:   2 out of 4


The mighty Sith dynasty founded on the planet Kesh by the survivors of the shipwrecked Omen has endured for a thousand years -- and so has the merciless Sith code, which prizes power above all else. Lady Orielle Kitai enjoys power as the scion of a noble family and member of the elite Sith Sabers. But Lillia Venn, as reigning Grand Lord of the Sith, possesses absolute power . . . and is determined to keep it.

When a failed regicide sparks a political -- and literal -- bloodbath, and suspicion falls on Orielle, she is swiftly condemned to slavery by the ruthless Grand Lord Venn. But seeing the cunning power play for what it is, Orielle vows to strike back. And at the ramshackle home of a poor dirt farmer with an astounding secret, she discovers the means to make her vengeance a devastating reality.



Adrick:

    John Jackson Miller returns to fill in the backstory of the Lost Tribe of the Sith, which is no less interesting for the thousand-year jump between this story and the last one. The notion of a Sith aristocrat falling from power is an immediately compelling one, as is the relationship she builds with the mysterious farmer. I usually enjoy Miller’s short works, and this is no exception. Plenty of drama here for such a small story—well worth reading.



Adrick:

    Although the idea of the affair between Jelph and Ori is a great one, we hardly get to see it—the romance between the two develops almost entirely “off-page”. There is a lot of exposition here to get readers up to speed on the politics of the Lost Tribe, but none of it is as interesting as the love story between Sith Ori and slave Jelph. It’s unfortunate that more of Miller’s precious little page space is devoted to the former than the latter.



Adrick:

    Uvak dung. Eeeeew.
