"Two there should be, no more no less. One to embody the power, the other to crave it."--Darth Bane
Darth Zannah, while Darth Bane is the epitome of what the Sith should be Zannah shines in this story. She learns her first lesson of being a master, and honours her master in the end. Showing her strength in Sith sorcery really shined the (dark) light on her.

The Future of the Sith Begins Here
While this was the least of the trilogy it was still pretty great. Jonathan Davis really gets you involved. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating for storyline is how brief the final showdown is as it seemed as rushed confrontation. Still, Karpyshyn, I thank you for the tremendous trilogy.
Jonathan Davis narration was spot on.
Darth Bane and Darth Zannah vs 5 Jedi, really 4 since 1 was there for his battle meditation and not to fight. Still, the Dark Lord of the Sith and his apprentice show why they are the present and future of the Sith order.
If I had the time I would have.
I've listened to Rule Of Two about 7 times now, and I must say it never gets any less exciting. Easily my favourite of the Darth Bane trilogy. Zannah really shines at times as well, proving to be a worthy apprentice time and again.
My top 3 moments
Revan's holocron and it's (brief) lessons we get to hear.
Bane taking the title of Darth declaring his superiority.
The fight with Kissem in the Rakatan temple.
Mr Davis does a tremendous job portraying different voices and different inflections for each voice. He is the best narrator of an audiobook I've listened to so far.
Darth Bane is Born
Jonathan Davis really makes this engaging. The story is excellent, from his mining kortosis on Apotros, to being a gloom walker, and then Sith apprentice at first and his road to Darth Bane is excellent storytelling. Drew Karpyshyn is an excellent author, and certainly made his mark in the star wars universe.
