Description de l'ouvrage

10 février 2012
Remove the disposable exterior box to reveal the black-and-red pyramid-shaped Sith case. It appears innocuous at first.

The Sith have existed in the galaxy for centuries, lurking, waiting for their chance to seize control. As various Sith Lords emerged and rose to power, they recorded their thoughts, exploits, and plots for Sith control of the galaxy. When they fell, their knowledge vanished with them forever. Or so it seemed. . . .

Over the years, these writings were passed among numerous Sith and Jedi, who added their comments to the pages. In his quest for domination, Darth Sidious tracked down what remained of five pivotal Sith texts written by his most powerful predecessors. Then, drawing on the knowledge within the compiled pages, he wrote a sixth text—his own manifesto. Together, these documents, along with several collected objects associated with them, shed light on the philosophy, achievements, and failures of the Sith Order. For years, this collection remained hidden, existing as legend only. But now all who are tempted may unlock the Book of Sith and delve into the dark side. . . .

From the creators of The Jedi Path, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, Book of Sith reveals the mystery and madness of the dark side—while introducing new characters, history, as well as sinister insights into what it means to be a Sith Master.

Recovered dark side texts:
• A chronicle by Sorzus Syn of her encounters with Sith Purebloods, explorations in alchemy, and the foundations of the Sith Order.
• A war journal kept by Darth Malgus during the Great Galactic War, describing methods of war and the campaigns of the Sith army.
• A source book by Darth Bane that details the idea and the philosophy behind the Rule of Two as well as the training required for a Sith.
• An instructional manual by Mother Talzin exploring the Nightsisters’ use of the dark side and their role as dark side mercenaries in the galaxy.
• A scientific journal by Darth Plagueis with notes about his experimentation with and manipulation of the Force.
• Darth Sidious’s manifesto about the philosophy and political manipulation that marked his rise to power and established his Empire.

Those who added their comments: Darth Sidious, Darth Vader, Asajj Ventress, Yoda, Mace Windu, Quinlan Vos, and Luke Skywalker

Removable features: A scrap of a Sith burial shroud, a battle map from the Great Galactic War, a Sith lightsaber crystal, a Nightsister talisman, a diagram detailing Palpatine’s political strategies during the Clone Wars, and a propaganda poster for the Galactic Empire, and a note from Luke Skywalker

Au premier abords, on pourrait penser que c'est un simple gadget en plastique, eh bien non, c'est tout simplement un très beau collector (US uniquement), donc il faut bien penser à acheter en même la version VF du livre des sith

Après l'édition collector de "The Jedi Path" The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force Vault Edition j'attendais avec impatience la version Sith ! Et je ne suis pas déçu. Les effets sonores et lumineux sont au top, les petits objets bonus (cristal de sabre, médaillon Sith...) sont très bien réalisés et le must du must c'est quand même le livre sans copyright dessus !!! Il n'y a pas marqué en gros "Star Wars" ni le nom de l'éditeur ce qui le rend authentique.
Une très belle réalisation pour les fans !

Vivement la sortie française...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jedi News Book Review - Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side 11 février 2012
Par Darth McAdam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
*** WARNING - CONTAINS SPOILERS ***

The Sith have been getting a lot of love of late, what with the introduction of Darth Malgus in Star Wars: The Old Republic as well as the recent novel about Darth Plagueis, and this has continued with the release of The Phantom Menace on 10th February, and on the same day, Book of Sith, which as the title suggests, is a book, of Sith...

The book itself comes enclosed in a holocron that also contains a Sith Crystal and Talisman concealed within the tray that also holds the book. Pressing a button on the top of the holocron opens it, with a section of the front lifting-up to allow the tray inside to slide out and reveal the book, all of which is accompanied by a rather piercing wall of noise (sounding at times like force lightning, at others a lightsaber closing down) and flashing red lights. I may be easily entertained, but personally I think it's a pretty awesome feature.

The books is broken down into six texts, which, as Darth Sidious details in the preface, were recovered during his gathering of ancient Sith artifacts, and comprises Sorzus Syn's chronicle of the rise of the Sith Empire, a war journal by Darth Malgus, The Rule of Two by Darth Bane, Wild Power by Mother Talzin, a scientific journal by Darth Plagueis, and Absolute Power by Darth Sidious. A note from Luke Skywalker(!), explains that each of these sections has its own page design and trim, to distinguish the six individual texts.

In the preface of the book, Darth Sidious explains how he has seen the Grand Plan of the Sith come to fruition, as well as his purpose in compiling the texts included in the book, with one, somewhat ironically, being recovered from the Jedi Temple. Sidious goes on to briefly describe each of the texts within the Book of Sith, and how they came to be in his possession, whilst also hinting at a multi-volume Dark Side Compendium (can't wait!). Throughout the book are comments from Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu and Quinlan Vos from the ranks of the Jedi, as well as annotations from Darth's Sidious and Vader, and Asajj Ventress.

The text written by Dark Jedi, Sorzus Syn, begins with Exile and Arrival, following her expulsion from the Republic, and covers such topics as Sith weapons, amulets & holocrons and also their conquests, alchelmy & incantations, concluding with The Sith Code and The Prophecy of the Sith'ari. The pages themselves have an almost serrated-edge and are written in a script that exemplifies the text's age, and also included within the section is a burial shroud

Printed on what looks like graph paper, Darth Malgus's journal begins mid-sentence, with an annotation from Luke stating that the section was all that survived of a longer document. Close to a year of his Rim Campaign is covered, during which Malgus discusses both victories and failures against the Republic as well as infighting with other Sith Lords, and the section ends with his search for a weapon built by Exar Kun, with an amusing remark from Darth Vader that has echoes of Indiana Jones' comment about the Nazis and their search for the ark. Malgus also makes reference to the Sith enslaving non-humans, something that was seen again in Palpatine's era, whilst also touching upon a seemingly forbidden love with a Twi'lek by the name of Eleena, and this section comes with a battle map from the Great Galactic War.

The Rule of Two, written by Darth Bane, will likely be familiar to most readers, particularly since it is referred to in Yoda's remark to Mace Windu in The Phantom Menace that "Always two there are, no more, no less. A master and an apprentice.", but it was not always the case. Bane explains why this philosophy must be adopted by the Sith in order to survive, by highlighting past mistakes in the Sith Empire, namely the destruction of the Brotherhood of Darkness and the Jedi Army of Light on Ruusan with the triggering of the thought bomb. He elaborates on the rule when discussing "The Title of Darth", "Striking from the Shadows", "Selecting an Apprentice" and "The Revenge of the Sith" in which he describes how one day the Sith will reveal themselves to the Jedi; sound familiar? Bane's statement that the Force is venom leads him to discuss personal, lightsaber and dark side combat, lightsaber construction and Sith variants of the weapon among other things.

Whilst not strictly a Sith, Mother Talzin writes about the Nightsisters of Dathomir in Wild Power. Not distinguishing light from dark, the Force is referred to merely as the spirits, and in her text, Talzin covers an array of topics, including "The Writings of the Nightsisters", "The Living Force and the Dark Side", "The History of Dathomir", "The History of the Nightsisters", "The Winged Goddess", "The Fanged God", "Talismans and Totems", "Beasts of Dathomir", "Nature's Vigor", "Training a Warrior", "Instruction and Transformation" and "Competing Dark Side Traditions". As might be expected, Asajj Ventress contributes a number of annotations to this text, and in "Training a Warrior", the Tests of Fury, Night and Elevation, witnessed in the Savage Opress arc of season three of The Clone Wars, are briefly documented.

The tragedy of Darth Plagueis was recently revealed in the novel named after the Muun Sith Lord, and Darth Sidious' master was described as being obsessed with manipulating midi-chorians for the purpose of creating life and preventing death. In his text, he devotes pages to "The Science of Creating Life", "Influencing Midi-Chlorians", "Perpetual Life", "Concentrating the Force", "The Philosophy of Life", "New Explorations in the Force", "Transcending Death", "The Netherworld and Chaos", "Sith Spirits" and "The Prophecy of the Chosen One" (in which he makes mention of the legend of Mortis, a planet that will no doubt be familiar to viewers of The Clone Wars), ending the text with the Sith's own prophecy, "The Culmination of the Sith'ari".

Darth Sidious' text, "Absolute Power" concludes Book of Sith and it is presented as three books: "The Weakness of Inferiors", "The Book of Anger" and "The Manipulation of Life". Whilst much of his master plan was covered in the Darth Plageis novel, Sidious does expand on how he brought about the Clone Wars as part of his master plan, referring to "The False War", "The Useful Bureaucrats" and "Hiding in Plain Sight". The artifacts accompanying this section consist of a diagram of Palpatine/Sidious' master plan and also a propaganda poster for the Galactic Empire.

All of this merely scratches the surface, and Book of Sith is enhanced greatly by original illustrations by acclaimed artists Paul Allan Ballard, Jeff Carlisle, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, Russell Walks, Terryl Whitlach and Aristia/Hive Studios.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome!! No Sith Lord should be with out it! 10 février 2012

Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Just received my copy today, it's everything described and more! The Holocron packaging is beyond words, way cooler than than the first packaging for the jedi book, The book itself is even designed better, why does evil get better stuff? This was so worth the price of $59.99. I can't wait to start reading the secrets of the dark side. Great work on a great follow up to your first book!! Job well done!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Love the book but problems with door opening. 14 février 2012

Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Just got this other day. Got it out of box, pulled battery strip and pressed the button on door. Opened up and made all the noises and lights and was just pure awesome.
Read like half the book already, put the book back into the box and did not want to close. It made this like grinding sound and door did not want to shut. I pressed button again and had to kinda help force it down, hasn't done that since, but it shouldn't do that at all. I give the book a 5/5. I give the box a 3/5. just could have done a lot better job on door mechanism and such. The book of Jedi had a way better case, this is a fail. sorry to say that but its true, not worth 60 bucks at all. maybe 30 at that. The book of sith is way better then path of jedi though, hope this helps, thanks for your time, may the force be with you

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A mixed bag.. 12 mars 2012
Par BigBadBalrog - Publié sur Amazon.com

A review of this item really needs to be taken from two perspectives: first regarding the book and second regarding the vault.

The book is nicely done. It's well bound with an embossed, leather-like cover. Each different journal section is composed of unique page types, helping to sell the idea that its a compilation from multiple sources spanning many years. It's well written and provides some nice insights into the Sith and their history, practices, powers and plans. If I was reviewing the book alone I'd probably give it 4-5 stars...in fact, if you can buy the book alone I'd seriously recommend doing so because that leads us to the second part of this review...

The Sith Vault Holocron case looks uber cool...at first. It's really a piece of junk. The quality of plastic used for both the holocron and the misc. added items is about the cheapest that can be found. Casting marks are evident in the plastic that really hurt the overall appearance. When you press the gold triangle to start the action, the appearance only gets worse. Not only is the animation mechanism poorly designed but it's also made of far too flimsy low density plastic. The gears click-click-click and then finally engage. I bought this as a birthday gift and the vault didn't even survive the day. Within half a dozen uses it was hanging up or failing to open and close properly. The vault itself is only part of it, the removable items are cheap too. The "bonus" items are nothing more than thin, fraying fabric, simple printed paper and low grade plastic. When you consider the cheapness of the vault, it might be be worth perhaps half of the current price, but the poor design further undermines that plausibility. It's inexcusable to market this item as "working" when it clearly does not or will not for long. Everyone who bought this item at the $60 pricepoint deserves at least half their money back...and as I said above, if you can buy the book alone, go for it!

From my standpoint, this will be the last "Lucas Books" item I'll buy. If it hadn't been a gift I would without a doubt be returning it. As it is, its a lesson learned. I can always use a few more lessons in life...
