Reseña del editor
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.

• A chronicle by Sorzus Syn of her encounters with Sith Purebloods, explorations in alchemy, and the foundations of the Sith Order.

The box that it is packaged is nice (worth saving). The Holocron case itself it HUGE! All Shiny black and red. It is I would say guessing about 10 inches, maybe 12 square at the base. When you push the button, the front of the pyramid pops open and lifts up as the red lights flash and the sound of lightsabers powering on plays. As the lid opens a tray containing the "Book of the Sith" slides out. Really awesome! My son thought it was just the best gift ever. Yeah we are all Starwars fans! On the inside tray where the book is is the Sith Crystal (it does come out). The book is pretty cool , stuck between the pages are artifacts of the sith, maps and compass like item.
My son has already read the book at least 4 or five times. The book it written as a SITH with footnotes and handwritten notes in the magins, It is as if you are reading the private thoughts of past Sith lords. So if you have or know a Starwars fan and you want to give them a gift they will LOVE you for .... These vault editions are it!
The box seemed to have been opened before and looked roughly handled. I feel like the original packaging maybe had one of those plastic seals covering the entire thing. This package only had tape on the box to close the tabs that slide out to open the box lid. The item inside has a few questionable marks and scuffs on it that really make me feel like it's not new. The book has a harsh cut on top left like something cut into it really badly. I'm not sure what caused this. On one of the red triangle panels on the side, there are to small plastic dots that are sticking out and are clearly not supposed to be there.
Aside from thinking I may have received a previously opened item, which to me makes it "not new," I really love this piece. I think it would make ANY Star Wars fan happy to have, and makes an AWESOME birthday gift for any fan. There are also Jedi, and Bounty Hunter versions too. Or just the books available if you don't want the whole shabang!
As for the content, I was pretty impressed and would rate this four out of five stars. Most of the entries offered new insights into the Star Wars Universe as well as the characters that wrote the individual sections, and I did enjoy the comments that were left by every new person that gained access to it. The design of the book and different writing styles the real author of the book (Daniel Wallace) used convinced me that I was actually reading something by five authors, each with his or her own set of philosophies.
There were a few things that I didn't care for as much which knocked the rating from a five to a four. The first is that I feel that some of these stories could have been a little longer. At times I really felt that I was getting into it only to find out that two or three pages were left. In particular, I think Sorzus Syn's was the most interesting and least explored in the Star Wars universe; a novel should be crafted for this being. Secondly, I enjoyed the comments a lot, and believed each of the personalities with whom they belonged. However, I am taken out of the story when I see that each of them wrote their names next to the comments. I feel that is something people wouldn't do. When I write or highlight comments in text books I get for school, I usually just leave a scrawl in the margin; my name is unimportant. It would have been far more effective to give the reader a separate sheet of paper with each of the samples of writing with Luke's deciphering of which person it belonged to, and then when the reader read the comments they would have to figure out whom it belonged to by comparing the handwriting.
For anyone who is really interested in Star Wars, this edition is a wonderful addition to your collection.
