Product Description


"It's a testament to how strong the writing and characters are that I was unable to predict how it would end, even up to the very last page... Works perfectly in rounding off the loose ends from the first two books, whilst also leaving enough room to continue, with plenty of Star Wars action along the way. 9/10" (Emotionally Fourteen)

Book Description

The sequel to the New York Times bestsellers Star Wars: Darth Bane: Path of Destruction and Star Wars: Darth Bane: Rule of Two, continuing the epic tale of Darth Bane, the most famous Sith Lord ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Slowish Start, The Rest Is Epic (Mostly) 29 Dec 2009
The third Darth Bane book overall does not disappoint. Unlike the first two books however, I felt it had a rather slowish start. The book opens with little in the way of action - something we saw so much of in the previous books. There is a 'shoot out' here and there, but the beginning mostly introduces you to various new characters (and forgotten old ones) as well as what is going on inside their minds. This can be interesting at times, but I felt that overall in terms of entertainment value the opening quarter of the book was a little hit and miss.

Once this book got going however, it was as exciting as anything we've seen in the previous two novels. All the individual narratives merge into one making it nearly impossible to put this book down (much like the other Darth Bane books).

My only other complaint is the final paragraph of the book (excluding the epilogue) which was frustratingly confusing. When you get there you'll understand what I mean - the good news however, is that the author clears this up on his website.

To conclude, I'm pleased to say this novel is a worthy conclusion to the Darth Bane trilogy. Apart from the slowish start and slightly confusing ending it is a thoroughly enjoyable read. If you've read the other Darth Bane books and are heisting buying this book please do so no longer. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

I would also urge any Star Wars (or sci-fi) fan who has not read the Bane trilogy to do so. It's surely the finest trilogy of Star Wars books.

If you want a comparison against the other Bane books I would rank this book overall the weakest of the trilogy (with the first being the strongest book). However, this does not mean it's a bad book, I still really enjoyed it...and I'm sure you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good ending. 15 May 2011
The 3rd book out of the Darth Bane trilogy. 10 years on from the end of book 2, this finale centres on the future of the Sith. Darth Bane is starting to question his choice in apprentice as she has not challenged him for the title of Sith Master, despite his growing signs of weakness. What springs from there is a division between him and his apprentice, Darth Zannah, as the future of the order hangs in the balance.

Very good. I was unsure of how Drew Karpyshyn could finish this trilogy without it feeling flat, but the ending is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ending for Darth Bane series 14 July 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read and loved the 2 former Darth Bane books, so I was very happy when I finally got the last one, to see how it would all end.
I was not disappointed, Darth Bane and his apprentice show us all how the Sith will remain strong until Palpatine rules the Entire Galaxy.
It all started with Bane and his views of what the Sith philosophy should be. I recommend this Book, as well as its 2 predecessors to anyone that likes Star Wars. Actually, if you like reading and any form of scy-fy/Fantasy, do yourself a favor and get this trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story 3 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Third book in this series, great fast paced story. Been a couple of years now. Wish there was a number 4. The Bane series is an example of how to write a star wars book. So many of these books consist of one quite interesting idea, padded out to 300 pages. This is innovative, interesting, rich in content.. For once a great character is given a great book, or in this case 3 great books. Wish someone had done the same with Kenobi. How that was messed up i shall never know, it should have been an easy write. Still watch Caprica or V and you can see that even the easiest idea can be royally messed up. That makes the Bane trilogy shine even more.

“A Dark Jedi, on the other hand, has much smaller ambitions. He—or she—thinks only of himself. He acts alone. The ultimate goal is not galactic conquest, but personal wealth and importance. Like a common thug or criminal, he revels in cruelty and selfishness. He preys upon the weak and vulnerable, spreading misery and suffering wherever he goes.” &quote;
