Review - Star Wars #5 (Purgatory)

This is the synopsis from Amazon:

The mighty Sith dynasty founded on the planet Kesh by the survivors of the shipwrecked Omen has endured for a thousand years—and so has the merciless Sith code, which prizes power above all else. Lady Orielle Kitai enjoys power as the scion of a noble family and member of the elite Sith Sabers. But Lillia Venn, as reigning Grand Lord of the Sith, possesses absolute power . . . and is determined to keep it. When a failed regicide sparks a political—and literal—bloodbath and suspicion falls on Orielle, she is swiftly condemned to slavery by the ruthless Grand Lord Venn. But seeing the cunning power play for what it is, Orielle vows to strike back. And at the ramshackle home of a poor dirt farmer with an astounding secret, she discovers the means to make her vengeance a devastating reality.

My review: 4 stars

Plot: At first this book confused me, because the main character had not been mentioned in the previous books. Then I realized this one is set years after the fourth book ended. This plot dragged a little for me, but it picked up significantly towards the end with a cliffhanger that leads you directly into the next book.

Characters: I found Ori a bit annoying to be honest. She is very arrogant about her family's standing, and then when she has the chance to restore it she takes it up without considering the consequences of the others around her.

Setting: The setting is the same as the previous books, just years later.

Overall: I loved the romantic aspect included in this book, because it helped you to understand Ori a little more. This book is a good read and I can't wait to start on the next one!
