Dark Disciple by Christie Golden is the first novel in the canon to utilize unproduced scripts from The Clone Wars television series, originally written by Dave Filoni, Matt Michnovetz, and Katie Lucas. It was released in July of 2015.

The first thing I have to say is that Christie Golden did exactly what any novelizer should do. She added information and beats to the story to make it flow better, but kept true to the facts and spirit of the original story. She made something made for kids television translate into a novel for adults. That would be a daunting enough challenge, even if it wasn’t a Star Wars property, and yet Christie Golden met that challenge head on and did a great job.

Retro Reviews: ‘Lords of the Sith’ by Paul S. Kemp

Lords of the Sith, by Paul S. Kemp, is the fourth adult novel released in the Star Wars canon in April of 2015.

To start with, this book has an extra special place in my heart, as it was the first Star Wars canon novel I read in December of 2015 (right when The Force Awakens came out) and I’ve been reading Star Wars books ever since.

Paul S. Kemp did a great job on this novel. His writing is exciting and scary and nerve wracking. I knew throughout the story that Vader and the Emperor were going to survive and be fine, but I found myself cheering for the Rebels and wishing and hoping that they would be successful. There were times where I bought into the excitement and thought that perhaps the Lords of the Sith would be taken down for good. Any author wants their audience to become immersed in the story, and Kemp absolutely nailed that here. Continue Reading Retro Reviews: ‘Lords of the Sith’ by Paul S. Kemp…
