"First, as is apparent from that spectacular cover, the book features Vader and Palpatine. It also features a character who I'm not allowed to name just yet, but who appeared in The Clone Wars animated series. In terms of where it fits in the timeline, Lords of the Sith is set after the Revenge of the Sith film and before the forthcoming Rebels television show."
Paul S. Kemp[src]

Lords of the Sith is an upcoming novel that will be written by Paul S. Kemp. It is scheduled for release in April 21, 2015 and will take place in the time frame between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Rebels.

Publisher's summary
