Good reader, great book; I could do without the sound effects. They sometimes made the narration inaudible.
I thought this book was really well done, and am upset that it took me as long as it did to pick it up. Despite what little things may have annoyed me about this book, I found it extremely entertaining. By the time it ended, I was itching for the next one. Jonathan Davis is an excellent narrator. I loved his narration of this story. It was a lot of fun, and I look forward to the next one in the trilogy.
Very well told story with great character development. Darth Bane is so bad ass. You respect and fear him yet admire him for living by a strong code and picking himself up from nothing to become one of most powerful Siths of all time.
The Darth Bane trilogy of books is so captivating from start to finish. Would love to see this story adapted into movies.
I have read this book 4 times now, or I guess I should say listen. I am amazed at how lost I can get in this universe through this trilogy. Drew did an incredible job, I can only hope he returns as an author for the new Canon books. If you were on the fence about buying this book – jump off that damn fence and get it – totally worth it
A glorifying start to the last chapters of the Old Republic era! Well red, well written! Exciting new and long forgotten secrets gets uncovered !!
Absolutely. The story was phenomenal. The narrative was gripping, believable, and most of all - real. I can't say that I've ever felt more immersed in a Star Wars tale, save for perhaps Knights of the Old Republic. Karpyshyn proves here he is among the best-damned writers of the beloved Star Wars universe.
Obviously, my favorite character would have to be Darth Bane! Constantly willing and able to change, he transforms several times throughout the tale, and we as the audience grow with him. I feel as I have watched him grow into the Dark Lord of the Sith, and I can't wait to find out what he does with this power.
Not to belabor the point, but Jonathan Davis' representation of Darth Bane was my favorite. It had a distinct and alluring tonality, was instantly recognizable, and exceptionally fitting for the character. Davis is truly great at his craft.
I had an extreme love for this book. It's rising-up tale set in the Sith Empire, what's not to love?!
Read it! Hear it!!
