    Twenty years have passed since Darth Bane, reigning Dark Lord of the Sith, demolished the ancient order devoted to the dark side and reinvented it as a circle of two: one Master to wield the power and pass on the wisdom, and one apprentice to learn, challenge, and ultimately usurp the Dark Lord in a duel to the death. But Bane’s acolyte, Zannah, has yet to engage her Master in mortal combat and prove herself a worthy successor. Determined that the Sith dream of galactic domination will not die with him, Bane vows to learn the secret of a forgotten Dark Lord that will assure the Sith’s immortality - and his own.

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Where does Path of Destruction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top 3. The story was excellent and exciting. Never a dull moment.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Giddeon (sp?) was a ruthless Sith apprentice that had me fascinated by her character. She made real world decisions and didn't shy away from difficult choices.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. All were excellent. The added sound effects and voice characterizations made for a even more lively story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could! It killed me to break it up and only listen to it when I had spare time. I kept sneaking in listens here and there.


    Any additional comments?

    Get the entire trilogy! It was great seeing Bane's adventure from a nobody to one of the most menacing forces in the universe.

    In the New York Times best-seller Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Drew Karpyshyn painted a gripping portrait of a young man’s journey from innocence to evil. That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sith - until his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order...and create it anew from the ashes.

    Would you listen to Rule of Two again? Why?

    Yes, Drew's story was excellent, not to mention greatly narrated by Jonathan Davis.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rule of Two?

    The tense and gripping ending. I never thought one could 'read' about a lightsaber battle but Drew made it truly imaginable with his accurate descriptions.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The background noise sets the environment, while Jonathan and his many voices really add flavour to each character. It would have been a bit flat if all the characters had the same voices, so the fact that each character had their own unique identify really made it more exciting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Despite being evil (albeit a lawful evil), you really do feel a bit sorry for Bane and everything that he struggles against.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't recommend this entire series enough. Not only is it great story telling, excellent narration, but the characters are their own with each distinct personality. Some you really care for while others you just want to slap. But the fact that you care so much either way is a great testament to how good this series is.
