lords-of-the-sithWith Paul S. Kemp’s next Star Wars book fast approaching, here is an excerpt from Lords of the Sith.

    Cham had fought for his people and Ryloth for almost a standard decade. He’d fought for a free Ryloth when the Republic had tried to annex it, and he fought now for a free Ryloth against the Empire that was trying to strip it bare.

A free Ryloth.

The phrase, the concept, was the polestar around which his existence would forever turn.

Because Ryloth was not free.

Lords of the Sith will be out in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats on April 28th. Check out Random House’s official product page for excerpts and retailer links.
