Star Wars: the Expanded Universe (updated february, 2017)

There is so much more to Star Wars than those 8 movies! In fact I am far more intrigued by events during the Golden Age of the Old Republic, my favourite Star Wars era, that takes place from 25053 BBY (the founding of the Republic) until 1000 BBY (the Seventh Battle of Ruusan and the end of the New Sith Wars), than the Rise of the Galactic Empire (1000 BBY – 0 BBY) and what follows. I am especially interested in the timeline between 4000 BBY and 900 BBY, because the game SWTOR is set in this period as well as the following novels and comics I’ve read:

Star Wars – Knights of the Old Republic comics series (50 volumes) by John Jackson Miller (+- 3963 BBY)
The Old Republic: Revan by Drew Karpyshyn (3954 BBY – 3900 BBY)
The Old Republic: Deceived by Paul S. Kemp (3653 BBY)
Star Wars: The Old Republic – The lost Suns comics series (5 volumes) by Alexander Freed (+- 3651 BBY)
Star Wars: The Old Republic: Annihilation by Drew Karpyshyn (3650 BBY)
Darth Bane: Path of Destruction by Drew Karpyshyn (1003 BBY – 1,000 BBY)
Darth Bane: Rule of Two by Drew Karpyshyn (1000 BBY – 990 BBY)
Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil by Drew Karpyshyn (980 BBY+)

BBY = Before Battle of Yavin
ABY = After Battle of Yavin

Because I was particularly interested in Darth Malgus, I’ve also read the Book of Sith – Secrets from the Dark Side, a collection of the writings of Sorzus Syn, Darth Malgus, Darth Bane, Mother Talzin, Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious, bound together by Sidious.

The book looks great, as if it is bound from various ancient texts. Each collection of pages has a distinct font and page edge. I must say I struggled through some parts, such as the part about the Night Sisters, which I don’t think deserved so many pages. Darth Revan and Darth Malak are only mentioned. I was hoping to read more about them. Most interesting to me are the parts about Darth Malgus and Darth Bane. Maybe because they were not new to me and I was familiar with their background before the read. Those who are following the Expanded Universe will comprehend and enjoy The book of Sith more than those without context.
