Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith - John Jackson Miller I continue to be impressed with the quality and creativity of these "Lost Tribe of the Sith" stories. Sure, this book does seem to dive into comic book stereotypes - larger than life evil dudes and giant wormy monsters - but that doesn't hurt the story, the characters or the world in general.

Takara and Spinner go down as yet two more fascinating characters in this series. I like their love-hate relationship, withOUT them resorting to "falling in love" with each other. I like how there are females in this series, females that DON'T have to be constantly rescued by the dude. And I like how each one has his or her own motivations and desires.

The story expands on the concept that there are more continents and people on Kesh. It was a little hard for me to place WHEN this occurred - apparently after the events of "Pandemonium" from [b:Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories|13023324|Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith The Collected Stories|John Jackson Miller||18186079].

Even the artwork, which tends to trip me up, was great. Consistent characters, nice action, good flow (with a few spots that made me go, "HUH?" but overall good).

When a lot of recent Star Wars books seem to be shooting for the mediocre ([b:Revan|10687840|Revan (Star Wars The Old Republic, #3)|Drew Karpyshyn||15597755], [b:Knight Errant|8323122|Knight Errant|John Jackson Miller||13172604], [b:Star Wars: Scourge|12739907|Star Wars Scourge|Jeff Grubb||17878658], not to mention all the comics), this series has kept me A) interested in Star Wars and B) excited for each new installment. Please, Dark Horse, let John Jackson Miller continue writing Lost Tribe of the Sith!!
