Hey all!

New here and I'm interested in picking back up some SW fiction. The problem is that I tend to really like reading just about the bad guys. I always have. So it's no surprise that I loved reading "Darth Bane" and the "Bounty Hunter Wars" trilogy. But I can't seem to find any other stories that focus exclusively on the baddies. Any help?

Thanks!

The Old Republic: Deceived

Revenge of the Sith (good insight into Palpatine and Vader)

Other than those there really aren't many that focus soley on villains. There should be, but I digress.

Darth Plagueis pretty much exclusively focuses on villans (Plagueis and Palpatine).

Hey and welcome to the forum! I think this is where we have something in common cause I LOVE the baddies! Unfortunately the only books I can think of that focuses on them is Darth Plagueis and Revenge of the Sith, sorry. Sad

X2, I as well found that I enjoy the badies, isn't the dark side fun!!! The book Darth Plagueis is dark side threw and threw and I would suggest making it your next read.

Just off the top of my head:


TOR: Revan (about 50/50 between good and bad perspective)
TOR: Deceived
Lost Tribe of the Sith Anthology
Darth Bane (3 books)
Darth Plageius
Revenge of the Sith
Dark Lord: Rise of Darth Vader (again, 50/50 split)
The Force Unleashed I (for the first half, Starkiller is the bad guy)
Crimson Empire (comics)


The NJO and LOTF both have good insight into the main villains in parts, but definitely don't make that the focus.

Would Red Harvest fall into that group? I thought it was pretty decent.

You and I are among the few. I don't mind slasher movies so I liked it.

Red Harvest certainly has a focus on the badguys, though there is one Jedi and a relatively nice Whipid. But the tons of Sith (and later, zombie Sith) make up for it.

Technically the Thrawn books could be called the bad guy books.

Forgot about that one.

It was OK, but I honestly found myself bored. For a horror book, sure it was gory, but nothing that would actually keep me up at night.

Exactly. It wasn't scary, just gory.

The first one was more of your suspense, scary in the dark horror zombie novel. The second one was more a tribute to the slasher genre. I have a feeling if we got another one we'd get something akin to a haunted house or something like that. I really hope they give him another one because SW novels branching into other dramas interests me. We got the political epic with Darth Plagueis and these two different styles of horror novels, it all just excites me Smile
