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!!
This is the start of earth bane's story and I can not wait to hear the rest, the reader is also great, the sound effect they get to go with the reading could not be better, this is in my opinion the best way to get the story of this book.
This is the best story I've ever heard and can't wait to listen to the next two books! I suggest it to anyone interested in Star Wars
Listen. I'm not a reader at all so audible is perfect for me I just wish I had this available when I was in school and had to do book reports. I highly recommend this to any starwars fan especially to a kid that has to do a book report.
