Secrets of the Sith from Insight Editions Announced and Available for Pre-Order


Today, on This Week in Star Wars on, some big book news dropped. Secrets of the Sith from Insight Editions was announced. Following the terrific Secrets of the Jedi (2019), author Marc Sumerak and artist Sergio Gómez Silván return to lift the dark veil behind some of the galaxy’s most infamous Sith Lords.



Told from the perspective of Darth Sidious, the Sith Master will guide you through the history of the Sith. I had a lot of fun with the interactive features in Secrets of the Jedi, so I imagine this will have similar features. I’m curious how author Marc Sumerak will address the inclusion of Snoke, Kylo Ren, Asaj Ventress, and Savage Opress – none of who are Sith but dark side actors in the Sith’s plans. I’m curious to see.


The team at Insight Editions always deliver and this sounds like it will be no exception. Very pleased Marc Sumerak and Sergio Gómez Silván are returning, as Secrets of the Jedi is one of my favorite books to show casual or non-Star Wars fans. The interactive features help immerse the reader in the history of the Jedi, told by Luke Skywalker, so it’s great to see the Sith will get a similar spotlight.
