We don't know about it, the Emperor's plan of devour the galaxy would be failure for sure.

Does it? Who says? just beacuse there is a Republic in two thousand years doesn't mean it's the same one as is here now.

This is a new era, a blank slate. The next age is called "The Dark Age of The Republic" and that's not until the year 2,000bby, we are in like 3,658bby, 1,500 of blank history no need to kill the Empire in like 20 years.

No. theres small references between the TOR game and Ruin about the Republic still being around. Even then there is another Darth who rises up to fight the Republic that has no affiliation to the empire in a few hundred years.

Not much of a war if 1 side always loses. The Empire can have a few victories and still lose overall. (Really, just let a few of our Sith Lords win and gain some power, and they'll probably destroy the Empire for you trying to take control of it for themselves).

The book lacked something for me and I am not sure what. I liked the hero, I like master Gnost-Dural, I like the fact it was about a SIS agent not an army of jedi. I like the idea of the story.

However as many people said while Gnost-Dural was what I expected the SIth always seem simple and stupid. Also while I was happy to see the republic win I too am mainly an empire player and would like a book that would show them as more that simple minded fools who are not losing every battle.

Still I imagine a book like this is tough to write because of limits put on the story, the author also gets garanteed sales I only bought it because I play TOR. Still it was an enjoyable read and I was happy Gnost-Dural didn't die even though in truth his plan was retarded.

I must say, I did enjoy some DK previous works, but this one felt uninspired.

Also the constant "REPUBLIC WINZ / EMPIRE LOZER" is really out of place in this era or any other, if opposite forces aren't equals during the period of the game or era then why even bother telling it?

To be honest I'm starting to wonder if my opinion on D.K. has been the wrong one all along.

Even if there are any remnants of the Ancient Sith Empire around in the New Sith Wars, the Republic is still the unbroken dominant power until then.

This, I really don't see it changing either.

if Drew could, he would have written half the Empire protagonists dead by the end of the novel.

Empire is fodder. Accept it.
