Yes, see below.
The main character, Bane.
I have read and listened to several Star Wars EU books, most of them good. That being said they all seem to move very quickly, running along their stories to their inevitable end. They have always felt a little lack, still entertaining, but leaving me wishing they were fleshed out more.
The Karpyshyn books are not like that, this book and the others in this series felt very full and detailed, rich with content and not in a rush to get to the dramatic end. They slowly draw a detail rich story, I couldn't put it down.
If you like any of the EU books you have to read the Bane series.
Darth Bane:Path of Destruction is by far my favorite star wars book. The story gives you great character arch to understand Banes journey with the dark side.
Best Sith-Perspective Star Wars series written today. Great flow, excellent syorytelling/presentation and worth listening to. Highly recommended.
Loved it so much. This audiobook had me smiling as soon as I started it and the VB iconic music swelled. The production was top-notch with sounds and music elevating every scene. Narration was great, except sometimes the voices mixed but it was an amazing book, one that rekindled my love for the expanded universe.
I think I'm in love with a Star Wars villian....
Darth Bane has caused me to question my own morals. This book is so spectacular that on more than one occasion, I found myself very much identifying with the Sith in general, and especially with Bane. I just want so badly to give the man a hug!!
I honestly cannot imagine enjoying another book as much as I relished Path of Destruction, but as I begin the second I'm hoping that I will.
This should be one of the movies! This is the best story I have heard in the Star Wars saga to date!!
