  • Rule of Two: Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 2

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Rule of Two the most enjoyable?

    Jonathan Davis narration was spot on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Darth Bane and Darth Zannah vs 5 Jedi, really 4 since 1 was there for his battle meditation and not to fight. Still, the Dark Lord of the Sith and his apprentice show why they are the present and future of the Sith order.


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

    If I had the time I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to Rule Of Two about 7 times now, and I must say it never gets any less exciting. Easily my favourite of the Darth Bane trilogy. Zannah really shines at times as well, proving to be a worthy apprentice time and again.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    What did you love best about Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    Darth Plegueis vs Venamis, his retaliation vs the ex king of naboo. And if you have heard or read Maul: Lockdown you know how the bando gora get their weapon used to attack the Dark Lord.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: Darth Plagueis to and why?

    Darth Bane Trilogy, and Maul: Lockdown. They all make you want to see the Dark Lord prevail.


    Which character – as performed by Daniel Davis – was your favorite?

    Darth Tenebrous. But his Palpatine was great considering we all already know one voice for him, he was excellent. Nute Gunray, the Neimodian was hilarious.

    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.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Darth Zannah, while Darth Bane is the epitome of what the Sith should be Zannah shines in this story. She learns her first lesson of being a master, and honours her master in the end. Showing her strength in Sith sorcery really shined the (dark) light on her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The small talk between Zannah Bane and Cognus before the duel for the title of Dark Lord


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Future of the Sith Begins Here


    Any additional comments?

    While this was the least of the trilogy it was still pretty great. Jonathan Davis really gets you involved. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating for storyline is how brief the final showdown is as it seemed as rushed confrontation. Still, Karpyshyn, I thank you for the tremendous trilogy.

    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.

    Darth Bane should get his own movie. The book and narration was excellent to say the least. Jonathon Davis does a superb job voicing the Sith'ari. The whole trilogy is outstanding, but Path of Destruction sets it all up perfectly.
