Star Wars: Lords of the Sith

http://www.swbooks.co.uk/archive/ne...of_the_sith.htm

Can't wait for this book. Also, I find it interesting that it takes place before Tarkin. AND CHAM SYNDULLA FTW!

Buying it when it comes out.

It looks good, arguably the two best characters in the entire mythos working together, its a great plot and I can't wait to read it

Agreed.

Vader says he's much more powerful in the Force than when he was a Jedi. And this is just a few years after RotS (I think). So, that's interesting.

"A hatch on the far side of the hall slid open to reveal a purple-skinned Twi'lek man in makeshift armor. Seeing Vader, the Twi'lek's head-tails twitched, his eyes widened in surprise, and he grabbed for the blaster at his belt. By the time the Twi'lek had his blaster drawn and the trigger pulled, Vader had his lightsaber in hand and ignited. He deflected the blaster shot into the wall, raised his off hand, and with it reached out with the Force.
The Twi'lek pawed frantically at his throat as Vader's power lifted him off the deck, but to his credit he held on to his weapon, and gagging, dying, he managed to aim and fire his blaster at Vader again and again. Vader simply held his grip on the alien's throat while casually deflecting the blasts into the bulkhead with his lightsaber. Then, not wanting to waste time, he moved his raised hand left and then right, using the Force to smash the Twi'lek into the bulkhead. The impacts shattered bone, and Vader let the body fall to the deck."

"But Vader, standing behind the Throne, knew better. His Master was never lost in thought. The Emperor's thinking ranged over time and distance in a way not even Vader fully understood, allowing him to anticipate and plan for contingencies others did not recognize. Vader hoped to learn the technique one day, provided he didn't kill his Master first."

Interesting...

You have that quote?

Apparently Anakin became Vastly more powerful from TCW Season 5 to ROTS (according to the official site) and vastly more powerful than Dooku according to The Complete Encyclopedia, and now he's vastly more powerful than even that just a few years after ROTS?

At this rate he should be a Sith god by ANH.

Ah, Interesting, reading your link, and the first page claims Vader's injuries have actually strengthened his connection the force instead of hindering it. That's completely contradictory to Lucas's stance that Disney may have taken here.

Though I assume his potential has still been severely depleted, simply because otherwise the whole OT wouldn't make much sense narratively speaking.

Another reason why you people will probably be wrong about all the supposed hype of the new movies/books.

I hope this book is a sign of a new consistent standard for canon because it is the best I've read in a very long time.

Well as long as Vader's potential is hindered, why would his overall power be? I mean yeah he was cut to pieces, but for the most part it was just talking about his potential being cut...which is obvious of course, but that doesn't mean he still can't become extraordinarily powerful.

His potential =/= Overall power.

Indeed.

The first 50 pages were extremely good. Probably my favorite out of all the new books, honestly. I also love how badass Vader is portrayed by Disney.

Cham is also fantastic.

I love it Kemp wrote tremendously in Deceived, and his ability to clearly depict events and stay true to characters is interesting. The dynamics between Palpatine and Vader's relationships as cooperating allies is one I've never even imagined. This is going to be an excellent book.

Vader is shaping up to be extremely badass in the new canon, and I am glad. Some EU novel/comic portrayals of him were cringeworthy.

Kemp is easily one of the best Star Wars authors ever. Excellent read.
