    "I'm a die-hard Star Wars fan. My favorite novel that takes place in their universe is The Last Command. It would be great if they made this series into a movie. "

    "I loved this book. I had always been disappointed in the movie, with its insecure plot and character developments. Long story short, the book fixed all of my problems with the movie. Stover has written what the movie, in a perfect world, would have been. Anakin's fall was far more understandable and sympathetic, and while some reviewers have trashed the explicit "This is what it feels like to be ___" segments, I thought they were valuable additions that gave credence to the characters' actions. I loved Dooku's narration of his battle with Anakin and Obi-wan in particular--it helped me understand his (albeit, unimportant) character and gave insight into the Sith in general. Actually, I think that's the part I enjoyed most about the book--we learn, alongside Anakin, what the dark side and the Sith truly embody, and why they are so dangerous. These descriptions are mirrored by the added details of Obi-wan struggling to remember the ways of the Jedi after he loses so much in the wake of Order 66. 5/5, would read again. "

    "If the movies are not enough Star Wars for you, I highly recommend this book. As you can tell from the title, there is a tribe of Sith that are found and this story centers around what to do with them. Great story telling unfolds as the fights begin and it's almost like you can hear the lightsaber humming in your house. I truly enjoyed this book."

    "This is something I totally didn't even know existed. I did know there were a lot of Star Wars offshoot products but definitely didn't realize there were books involved. This book, from 2005, doesn't appear to be all that popular though. With a limited number of reviews it's hard to say this is the best. I'd imagine since 2005 a lot more novels have been produced. This is probably just an average novel. "

    "Definitely not the best of the Star Wars novels! Disney has even ruined the novels, not just the movies. I am fine with new characters, but this just does no feel like a Star Wars book, to me. You should pass up this one."

    "This is hands down the best Star Wars book and the best part is that its canon to the star wars universe. I've read other books about Luke and Ahsoka but this one really fills in any gaps in the story you might have had when it came to Leia."
