Book Description

28 Oct 2008 Star Wars: Darth Bane
In the New York Times bestseller Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Drew Karpyshyn painted a gripping portrait of a young man’s journey from innocence to evil. That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sith–until his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order . . . and create it anew from the ashes. As the last surviving Sith, Darth Bane promulgated a harsh new directive: the Rule of Two.

Two there should be; no more, no less.
One to embody the power, the other to crave it.

Now Darth Bane is ready to put his policy into action, and he thinks he has found the key element that will make his triumph complete: a student to train in the ways of the dark side. Though she is young, Zannah possesses an instinctive link to the dark side that rivals his own. With his guidance, she will become essential in his quest to destroy the Jedi and dominate the galaxy.

But there is one who is determined to stop Darth Bane: Johun Othone, Padawan to Jedi Master Lord Hoth, who died at Bane’s hands in the last great Sith War. Though the rest of the Jedi scoff at him, Joshua’s belief that there are surviving Sith on the loose is unshakeable.

As Johun continues his dogged pursuit of the man who killed his master, Zannah, faced unexpectedly with a figure from her past, begins to question her embrace of the dark side. And Darth Bane is led by Force-induced visions to a moon where he will acquire astonishing new knowledge and power–power that will alter him in ways he could never have imagined. . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Sith 7 Mar 2008
This is Drew Karpyshyn's second book in the Darth Bane series and the two are quite honestly the best star wars books you can buy.
I have read much of the new jedi order series and others but these books give an insight in the force that not even the films managed.
The characters are some of the best of any canon star wars material and the books are really just a joy to read and will leave you wanting more!

I would strongly urge any star wars fan especially those sick of constant infighting between jedi to buy these books and get a whole new perspective on the force - you will not be dissapointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark , powerful stuff ! 13 Feb 2008
If you are a lover of light fluffy insubstantial sci-fi then don't read this dark , violent and at times macabre tale of how the the Sith got up & running again . It is a nice easy read as it only took me a couple of evenings to get through and ends as abruptly as it starts . This book keeps you on the edge of your seat and would be the superb basis for a cartoon type movie . The characters have real depth and the imagery that this brilliant writer constructs is pretty powerful . I already look forward to the next novel in this sinister series and won't say more for fearing of ruining the suprise factor of all the dramatic twists and turns that so impressed me when I read it a few days ago . are doing us customers a great favour by selling this at such a superb discount . If you love great sci-fi books then this is for you !

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trilogy to see 20 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of all the stories in the star wars universe this is one of the best, as a sequel it is everything you would want with twists and turns to keep this epic tale more than alive, though this book is a bit shorter than the first and third it in no way diminishes the need for it filling in many blanks from the first and setting everything up for what will be an amazing final instalment. Don't buy this book unless you have read the first one and prepare for an epic trilogy that has as much right on the big screen as any star wars movies so far..........enjoy
