Book Description

Feb. 10 2012
Remove the disposable exterior box to reveal the black-and-red pyramid-shaped Sith case. It appears innocuous at first.

The Sith have existed in the galaxy for centuries, lurking, waiting for their chance to seize control. As various Sith Lords emerged and rose to power, they recorded their thoughts, exploits, and plots for Sith control of the galaxy. When they fell, their knowledge vanished with them forever. Or so it seemed. . . .

Over the years, these writings were passed among numerous Sith and Jedi, who added their comments to the pages. In his quest for domination, Darth Sidious tracked down what remained of five pivotal Sith texts written by his most powerful predecessors. Then, drawing on the knowledge within the compiled pages, he wrote a sixth text—his own manifesto. Together, these documents, along with several collected objects associated with them, shed light on the philosophy, achievements, and failures of the Sith Order. For years, this collection remained hidden, existing as legend only. But now all who are tempted may unlock the Book of Sith and delve into the dark side. . . .

From the creators of The Jedi Path, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, Book of Sith reveals the mystery and madness of the dark side—while introducing new characters, history, as well as sinister insights into what it means to be a Sith Master.

Recovered dark side texts:
• A chronicle by Sorzus Syn of her encounters with Sith Purebloods, explorations in alchemy, and the foundations of the Sith Order.
• A war journal kept by Darth Malgus during the Great Galactic War, describing methods of war and the campaigns of the Sith army.
• A source book by Darth Bane that details the idea and the philosophy behind the Rule of Two as well as the training required for a Sith.
• An instructional manual by Mother Talzin exploring the Nightsisters’ use of the dark side and their role as dark side mercenaries in the galaxy.
• A scientific journal by Darth Plagueis with notes about his experimentation with and manipulation of the Force.
• Darth Sidious’s manifesto about the philosophy and political manipulation that marked his rise to power and established his Empire.

Those who added their comments: Darth Sidious, Darth Vader, Asajj Ventress, Yoda, Mace Windu, Quinlan Vos, and Luke Skywalker

Removable features: A scrap of a Sith burial shroud, a battle map from the Great Galactic War, a Sith lightsaber crystal, a Nightsister talisman, a diagram detailing Palpatine’s political strategies during the Clone Wars, and a propaganda poster for the Galactic Empire, and a note from Luke Skywalker

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of Sith Jan. 6 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Got this the moment I saw it. Loved the vault and how it would present the book when you touched the button. The included artifacts were cool and the book itself was nice peek at the mind of the sith who "wrote" them. A nice addition to anyone who loves the Star Wars world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Feb. 22 2012
Format:Hardcover
I read the book and found it captured the essence of every sith who wrote in in. The only person I questioned was Darth Plagieus but even so it was still good. Luke skwalker was very open on the sith, but it was fine even so. The map of palpatines galactic war makes this book. I love it good for any star wars fan. (Make sure he/she knows about the old republic & the clone wars)

The book looks just amazing! Hard cover with so much detail inside and out.
What steals the show is the holocron. The only downside is the size of it. It's huge, but it's needed to be able to fit the book inside.
