5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end to the trilogy, 29 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Star Wars: Darth Bane - Dynasty of Evil (Paperback)
My hat off to Drew Karpyshyn, who has mastered a rare feat: writing three Star Wars novels without littering them with incomprehensible references to miscellanea no-one cares about.

The trilogy in general is excellent, but as I have reviewed the other two books, I shall stay focussed.

Dynasty of Evil tells the story of how the current generation of the new 'Rule of Two' Sith (Darth Bane and Darth Zannah) segue into the next generation (whoever that might be, I'm not telling!), and whether it is Darth Bane or Darth Zannah who triumphs and becomes (or remains) Dark Lord of the Sith.

As with the other two novels in the trilogy, it is well-written, and gives insight into the mysterious nature of the Force. Its pacing can be awkward in places, and the suspense builds pretty much from the beginning, so unless you read it as I did, in about two days, you might find that the dramatic tension breaks if you go for a long time between chapters. Having said that, you probably won't want to put the book down.

I am now in the midst of re-reading the trilogy, and the entire story is very moving. In my opinion, the fall of Dessel to the Dark Side, while less of a fall than Anakin Skywalker's, is more affective. And when one realises that Darth Bane set in motion the events that, one thousand years later, would result in the collapse of the Jedi Order and the Republic itself... the mind boggles.

An excellent novel, and a brilliant addition to the Expanded Universe.
