Once again Jonathan Davis brings another star wars novel to amazing life. This is a very dark story but EXTREMELY informative of the ways of the Sith. You learn everything about them, their beliefs, how they think, the history of their order, and of course how The Rule of Two came to fruition. You learn some of this if you've played the KoTOR games but this novel greatly expands upon that. There are many references of Revan and Malak which is quite enjoyable for those who love the games and this era of Star Wars. The novel is a heavily focused character story of the rise of Darth Bane and following him a long his path to the dark side is thrilling. AMAZING! BUY BUT THIS BOOK NOW!
Born in the seventies. Love Sci Fi & Fantasy.
Gripping story about the rise of Darth Bane. The author allows the reader/listener far more than a mere glimpse of the dark side of the force when telling his origin story of one of the great dark lords of the Sith.
Darth Bane is the one who will eventually instate the Rule of Two, which we know from the movies and which says that there can only be two Siths at one time. Which means that for most of this novel, the Rule of Two isn't there yet, hence there are a multitude of Siths and dark side force wielders!
The story is read brilliantly by Jonathan Davis, and of course enhanced with awesome SW audio effects.
In conclusion, I literally couldn't bring myself to do anything but sit on the couch and listen - which is an absolute first for me for usually I do all kinds of stuff while listening to audio books.
The creation of Bane had a little bit of a weaker childhood story but his character development and transition to the dark side from his age was incredibly well-written.
Jonathan Davis did a great job with the voicing of the entire cast - even the women. It was easy to differentiate the characters as they were voiced.
Many of the descriptions of bodily injury caused me to cringe - well done!
Drew Karpyshyn's book is a master piece couldn't stop listening to this first part of three.
Jonathan Davis narrated the Hell out of this book. his performance couldn't have been better between each character.
I look forward to the next two books!!! This is well worth it!!!
They should start casting for this movie now. Drew Karpyshyn did a awesome job writing, it kept me intrigued and wanting more. Jonathan Davis brought all the characters to life a great combination of great minds. Now part 2.
Darth Bane trilogy is easily the best Star Wars series. It tells you how Bane sacrifices his own people for the greater good of the Sith. In doing this he begins a journey to what eventually becomes the Empire by implementing the Rule of Two. Hollywood is always slow to realize what fans really want. But I think at some point you will see Banes story on the big screen. The most influential Sith Lord ever!
