Star Wars "Lost Tribe of the Sith: Paragon" by John Jackson Miller

The Suvudu Free Library released the third part in the Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith series this month titled Lost Tribe of the Sith: Paragon by John Jackson Miller.  Another wonderful addition to this series which dives us into the reality of what it means to be Sith, how this tribe came to be and their struggles for internal and external power.  This short series has been a fantastic edition to Star Wars lore and does not dissapoint.
Here is a synopsis from the Suvudu Free Library:
The ruthless cunning of the Sith Order has served the shipwrecked crew of the Omen well on the alien planet Kesh. Subjugating the superstitious Keshiri race by posing as its fabled overlords has ensured the Sith's survival -- while they struggle in secret to return to the stars. But after fifteen years on their adopted world, some among the lost tribe have grown restless and fearful that assimilation will consume their Sith heritage. Now, as rival factions begin to appear, a shocking disaster throws into doubt the Sith's future on Kesh.

In the distant city of Tetsubal, the entire native populace is suddenly wiped out by a grisly plague of unknown origin. With terrifying speed, more cities succumb to the mysterious contagion. Only the Sith remain unharmed -- so far. And as Sith commander Yaru Korsin grapples with the looming loss of the paradise he rules and the race his people have come to depend upon, he must confront the dark possibility that the catastrophe may not be cruel fate but insidious sabotage.
