The guys then get onto talking about the first episode of Rebels season 2 (SPOILER WARNING!), summer movies and more.
To end off, another top 5 list. This time it's Chris and Rico's top 5 sci fi themes.

Welcome to Star Wars Stacks episode 21, where we discuss Paul S. Kemp's new novel Lords of the Sith.
As with all our book review shows, we first cover some news:
Annie Leibovitz interview: http://www.starwars.com/news/capturing-a-galaxy-an-interview-with-annie-leibovitz-exclusive
John Williams to begin scoring sessions soon: http://makingstarwars.net/2015/05/john-williams-to-record-some-of-the-star-wars-the-force-awakens-score-next-month/
Then, we get to the book. As always, we begin with a spoiler-free reading of the publisher's summary and our initial impressions of the book. Then we sound the alarm and get into our plot summary and detailed spoiler filled opinions.
If you'd like to read the book yourself, you can get it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Lords-Sith-Paul-S-Kemp/dp/0345511441
Next time, we're heading back to the Legends era with the first book in the Han Solo trilogy, The Paradise Snare (http://www.amazon.com/Paradise-Snare-Star-Wars-Trilogy/dp/0553574159)
