7. Dynasty of Evil by Drew Karpyshyn
Synopsis: Twenty years have passed since Darth Bane, reigning Dark Lord of the Sith, demolished the ancient order devoted to the dark side and reinvented it as a circle of two: one Master to wield the power and pass on the wisdom, and one apprentice to learn, challenge, and ultimately usurp the Dark Lord in a duel to the death.
8. Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Woodring Stover
