I love Star Wars and I love the Sith what more could I ask for then a short story series dealing with the self satisfying group. Alot actually, this leaves something to be desired either while you are reading it's 37 pages or right after you finish. The writing is alright and the story is intriguing enough, so the fact that I want more out of it pretty much means I'm going to read the second one and gauge from there. This is one of those series that kind of assumes you know a good deal already so if it's your first venture into the extended universe I suggest picking up a different book like Darth Bane. However I've read a few other Star Wars books before this one and I have spend a good amount of time on Wookiepedia so I didn't really feel the need to have to search for everything mentioned.I debated on giving this 3 stars but wasn't sure, so I'll stick with a 2.5.
