In his quest for total domination, Darth Sidious compiled six legendary dark side texts detailing Sith history and philosophy by Sorzus Syn, Darth Malgus, Darth Bane, Mother Talzin, Darth Plagueis, and himself. Together these documents form the Book of Sith. Over the centuries, the texts were passed among Force users who left handwritten notes and annotations in the margins, including Darth Vader, Yoda, Mace Windu, and Luke Skywalker, among others. Collected by acclaimed Star Wars writer Daniel Wallace and embellished by numerous esteemed Star Wars illustrators, this volume introduces new characters and history, and delves deeper into understanding the philosophies and methods behind the dark side of the Force.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . . . When the Emperor and his notorious apprentice, Darth Vader, find themselves stranded in the middle of insurgent action on an inhospitable planet, they must rely on each other, the Force, and their own ruthlessness to prevail. “It appears things are as you suspected, Lord Vader. We are indeed hunted.” Anakin Skywalker, Jedi Knight, is just a memory. Darth Vader, newly anointed Sith Lord, is ascendant. The Emperor’s chosen apprentice has swiftly proven his loyalty to the dark side. Still, the history of the Sith Order is one of duplicity, betrayal, and acolytes violently usurping their Masters—and the truest measure of Vader’s allegiance has yet to be taken. Until now. On Ryloth, a planet crucial to the growing Empire as a source of slave labor and the narcotic known as “spice,” an aggressive resistance movement has arisen, led by Cham Syndulla, an idealistic freedom fighter, and Isval, a vengeful former slave. But Emperor Palpatine means to control the embattled world and its precious resources—by political power or firepower—and he will be neither intimidated nor denied. Accompanied by his merciless disciple, Darth Vader, he sets out on a rare personal mission to ensure his will is done. For Syndulla and Isval, it’s the opportunity to strike at the very heart of the ruthless dictatorship sweeping the galaxy. And for the Emperor and Darth Vader, Ryloth becomes more than just a matter of putting down an insurrection: When an ambush sends them crashing to the planet’s surface, where inhospitable terrain and an army of resistance fighters await them, they will find their relationship tested as never before. With only their lightsabers, the dark side of the Force, and each other to depend on, the two Sith must decide if the brutal bond they share will make them victorious allies or lethal adversaries. Praise for Lords of the Sith “A compelling tale [that] gives us new insight into the relationship between Darth Vader and his master, Emperor Palpatine.”—New York Daily News “Endlessly fascinating . . . a tale [that is] not just compelling but completely thrilling.”—Big Shiny Robot “The best novel so far in this new era of official canon Star Wars stories.”—IGN “Packed with action . . . hard to put down.”—Seattle Geekly From the Hardcover edition.
This deluxe, full-color, hardcover volume contains the first three books of training for Acolytes of Sith Academy: The Path of Power, Masters of the Will and Lords of the Force. Book One, The Path of Power, describes the events, revelations and ideas that initiated the Sith current on this planet, and invites others to take the first steps toward a new life in the Dark Side as a Sith Acolyte. Book Two, Masters of the Will, is a blueprint for becoming the master your own will, body, mind, spirit and destiny, and the master of your own group of Sith Acolytes. Book Three, Lords of the Force, reveals the nature and source of the Force, the metaphysical laws of its power, and various methodologies for commanding and conquering with it. There is also a complete reference to the Black Tongue of Borgâl--the language of the Dark Side. The Dark Lords make this knowledge available as a record of their revelations and work since the initial Omega Transmission in Imperial Year One. They do this to establish the Acolyte Path to the Dark Side for others to follow who will lead the Empire into the future. They also do this so that if they are ever killed and the Order is destroyed, there will remain a document from which others may rebuild the Order and revive the Sith current on this planet. Study and guard this book well; the knowledge contained herein is potentially more powerful than the ability to destroy planets for those who have faith in the Dark Side.
