The Reader reallyyy takes his job seriously, does lots of voices and reads with
The re-forming of the darkside, and the difficulty of maintaing the raw power of the darkside
Just the lightsaber noise
Very interesting story perspective of the sith
The why it drew you in to the story. It made you feel apart of the action in a certain way that not a tone of books do.
It's characters. While one particular character felt like cardboard to me, all others were pure originality.
Huh... I was going to type Darth Bane but to be honest, I can't say. They're all so intense and interesting to hear that I'm finding it hard to choose.
"The Dark Is Patient" Working off of the Revenge of the Sith's novelization theme of 'The Dark'.
Wow. This book continues the Story of Darth Bane into the era of silence, as I call it. Not quite accurate but it refers to the New Sith Wars and the republic's deafness to the Sith's existence.
Last book we saw the Sith in a war against the Republic and the Army of Light lead by Jedi Lord Hoth. After Bane's masterfully executed plan, one hundred of the Army of Light including Lord Hoth are now dead, as well as the entirety to the Brotherhood of Darkness. Now Bane, the sole surviving Sith Lord, Must train his newly acquired apprentice in the ways of the dark side.
This book brings so much into his character as well as bringing a new character, Darth Zannah. Her character is such an opposite, at first, to Bane's. She is blind to the dark side in the beginning and must be taught of it's nuances. Faded have the ways of the warriors, filled instead with the political sabotage.
To add to this newly established way of warfare, Bane has fallen victim to a symbiotic insect known as Orbalisks, which, incidentally, boosts his power and hatred in combat scenarios as well as becoming a nearly impenetrable wall of armor. Useful for the old ways, not so much the Order of the Sith Lords.
While Bane meditates and attempts to finish an ancient Sith technique, Zannah must conduct their public plots. Yes, there are other characters a Jedi, the Padawan of Lord Hoth, and Zannah's cousin Daravit (Apologies for any misspelling.).
With all this going on in the same book, it seems ridiculous that anyone could keep track of what was going on. But Drew pulls it off in this stunning sequel. My first read through, I was stunned. Listening to it with Johnathan's narration is epic.
I'm begging every SW lover to listen to this, even if you've already red the novel, it's a different experience entirely.
This was a very interesting addition to the ongoing introduction and metamorphosis of Darth Bane. Jonathan Davis must be the best in the business as everything he does is always done with a level of discernment I have found far batter than your average audio book performer. His narrative makes the book worth it.
This makes the sith code and the rule of two makes so much sense. The way this book is written and read, gives you an understanding for the philosophy and thought process if the sith. Their are always two sides to most opinions and this book describes the sith persuasion. Such a fun book to listen to... Worth buying for sure...
Drew Karpyshyn's story is brought to life with the beautiful narration provided by Jonathan Davis. Subtle ambient noises in the background make the locations and fights unique and beautiful.
Great book. at the end though it says that Xana says she collected 5 light sabers but they say that the healer-battle meditation guy was not Carrying one. Small thing.
