What is your favourite novel, Legends or Canon, from the Star Wars universe?  I truly have no favourite but here are some I like:


The Force Unleashed

The Rise of Darth Vader

Lords of the Sith

The Old Republic: Revan

Darth Bane Trilogy

Thrawn Trilogy

I was really hyped when I saw that they were making Lords of The Sith, especially when his other novel Deceived is so good. Ended up with it being one of my least favorite novels of the new canon.If I had to narrow it down to my favorite it comes down to either

Darth Bane Path of Destruction

Darth Bane Rule of Two

Darth Plagueis

Those are the top 3 at least that come to my mind.

^Why didn't you like it?

Because like the Revan novel it was completely mistitled.


But while the Revan novel is forgivable for me since learning about the inner workings of the sith empire were interesting, Lords of the Sith focuses on the Free Ryloth movement while Vader and Sidious continuously come across every species on the planet and just waste time.


It has some good parts, but overall I thought it was a disappointment. It just felt like a bad version of Dark Lord The Rise of Darth Vader, when I where I was expecting for it to move forward.

^Well the synopsis is misleading too

At first I was interested since the synopsis looked like it would provide more insight on the relationship between Vader and Sidious.  It partially did that, but focused more on those Twi'lek bastards

Wait, have you not read the novels, and just looked at the synopsis when making the list, because you did list it up with your favorites.

If this thread's point was for you to see novels you might want to try to look into, I could give you about 5 for both legends and the new disney canon that are worth looking into even if they aren't the best.

^No, I read it, enjoyed parts of it

Fair enough. It did have good parts, just not enough to put anywhere near my list. Sith Books are so interesting because you see the sith viewpoint. That book seemed to just be an idea that was like 50 pages and had to get stretched out into over 300.


Would have made a great like side episode in rebels, assuming they lightened the tone.
