Like others have said this is not really a novel, it is part of a short story. It could have been a great story, but there is not enough there to tell. No character development, interesting action, or anything of worth. It may be free but don't get it anyway.
Better. But not there yet.
I found myself enjoying 'Skyborn' just a hairline more than the first offering 'Precipice'. Sadly, there isn't enough going on in the story to grab me and I found myself just going through the motions waiting to reach the end. With that said, I am hopeful that this series will improve with each new addition and that John Jackson Miller will give readers the kind of quality storytelling that will make StarWars fans lose their minds. Having previously heard Miller say that he has something special up his sleeve, I'll continue to follow the series with some optimism. But I will be doing so with my fingers crossed.
These e-books are good for free books, but something about the way they are written I find them hard to follow at times. Overall though, if you're reading the current Fate of the Jedi story line it's a good tie in that fills in some of the back story of the Sith.
I found StarWars: LostTribe of the Sith #2: Skyborn to be much better than Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #1: Precipice. It introduces us to the planet and the sentient species living there. It shows us how the stranded sith first meet their new neighbors. An entertaining read, again very short, but it was free through kindle. Also, like the first short, it is a world building story.
