Publisher's Summary

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.

Since childhood, Dessel has known only the abuse of his hateful father and the dangerous, soul-crushing labor of a cortosis miner. Deep in the tunnels of the desolate planet Apatros, endlessly excavating the rare mineral valued throughout the galaxy, Dessel dreams of the day he can escape - a day he fears may never come. But when a high-stakes card game ends in deadly violence, Dessel suddenly finds himself a wanted man.

On the run from vengeful Republic forces, Dessel vanishes into the ranks of the Sith army and ships out to join the bloody war against the Republic and its Jedi champions. There, Dessel’s brutality, cunning, and exceptional command of the Force swiftly win him renown as a warrior. But in the eyes of his watchful masters, he is destined for a far greater role in the ultimate Sith plan for the galaxy - if he can prove himself truly worthy.

As an acolyte in the Sith academy, studying the secrets and skills of the dark side at the feet of its greatest masters, Dessel embraces his new Sith identity: Bane. However the true test is yet to come. In order to gain acceptance into the Brotherhood of Darkness, one must fully surrender to the dark side through a trial by fire that Bane, for all his unquenchable fury and lust for power, may not be strong enough to endure... especially since deception, treachery, and murder run rampant among the Sith disciples, and utter ruthlessness alone is the key to survival.

Only by defying the most sacred traditions, rejecting all he has been taught, and drawing upon the long-forgotten wisdom of the very first Sith can Bane hope to triumph - and forge from the ashes of that which he must destroy a new era of absolute dark power.

    "Excellent!!"

    Wow I haven't been so engrossed in any audiobook more than I was with this one. The reader and sounds are impeccable. I will be buying the whole series!! Definitely worth checking out. It's incredibly detailed and vivid. Not to mention it is VERY interesting to see how the Sith changed during the Old Republic era.

    "Telling of the birth of the Rule of Two"

    This was such a vivid telling of the birth of the Sith that rule the current Star Wars universe. I had always heard of Darth Bane and his power but to hear it come to life, and read so well by J. Davis was outstanding!! I highly recommend this audiobook.

    "Favorite Star Wars book ever"

    I have read this book 4 times now, or I guess I should say listen. I am amazed at how lost I can get in this universe through this trilogy. Drew did an incredible job, I can only hope he returns as an author for the new Canon books. If you were on the fence about buying this book – jump off that damn fence and get it – totally worth it

    "Great story of a great Sith"

    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.

    "Great series!! If you love star wars this is great"

    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.
