            I couldn’t wait until the third part of the Lost Tribe of the Sith series of Star Wars ebooks by John Jackson Miller was released.  I wanted to learn more about Yaru Korsin and the Sith who had been marooned on the planet Kesh.  I was also intrigued by the Kreshiri woman Adari Vaal who had become somewhat of an emissary between the Sith and the Keshiri.  When Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith: Paragon was released to the public, I quickly downloaded my copy.

            Paragon picks up fifteen years after the Omen crash landed on Kesh.  Seelah Korsin, widow of Yaru’s brother Devore, is now the healer in charge of continuing the Sith legacy.  Keeping a watchful eye over the crèche, Seelah made certain that the descendents of the Sith were healthy and pure, continuing the Sith line and keeping the legacy alive.

            Meanwhile, Ravilan, former quartermaster and leader of the last surviving group of Red Sith left in the Omen contingent, has a problem.  His species is dying off and, unable to reproduce as his human-blooded counterparts have, they have a desire more than ever to leave Kesh and rejoin their people.  Yaru Korsin believes this to be impossible, but allows Ravilan to continue to foster hope.  But, when a plague wipes out whole villages of Keshiri, will plans for the impossible be the Sith’s only hope for survival? 

            Star Wars: The Lost Tribe of the Sith: Paragon reveals the deviousness of the Sith and their willingness to do anything to achieve their goals, even if this means murdering innocents to attain their victory.  I was completely captivated by this installment of the nine-part series and was disappointed when I reached the last page.  My only complaint about this installment was that it was entirely too short for my taste.

            Paragon offers a promise of a rather interesting clash to come between the Sith and the Keshiri.  I can’t help but wonder how the events of this series will bring about the formation of the Sith tribe we meet in the Fate of the Jedi series of novels.  I suppose I will just have to wait until the next installment of the Lost Tribe of the Sith series to find out.
