Book of Sith, containing legendary Star Wars dark side texts and Sith objects, has been hidden for generations within a black-and-red pyramid-shaped case. Now, with the touch of a button, all who are tempted may unlock the power and madness, and delve into the dark side. The deluxe interactive holocron case with sounds and lights contains 7 removable features, including a scrap of a Sith burial shroud and a Sith lightsaber crystal. After inheriting more than a thousand years' worth of Sith secrets in the Sith Archives, Darth Sidious (also known as Emperor Palpatine) made it his quest to track down the most famous primary source documents by the great Sith Lords. Together, the fragments he recovered form the Book of Sith: Sorzus Syn's chronicle of the rise of the Sith Empire, Darth Malgus's Great Galactic War journal, Darth Bane's Rule of Two philosophies, Mother Talzin's Wild Power Nightsisters instruction manual, and Darth Plagueis's musings on the nature of the dark side. Darth Sidious includes his own manifesto on how he achieved absolute power and his vision for the future of the galaxy. Fortunately for readers, he was unable to erase previous comments scribbled in the margins of the ancient texts by Mace Windu, Master Yoda, Darth Vader, Quinlan Vos, and Asajj Ventress. After recovering the Book of Sith, Luke Skywalker later added his own comments to the manuscripts. Anyone wishing to understand more about the dark secrets of the Sith order will want to study its origins and doctrines in the Book of Sith.
