Summary:

This essential Star Wars Legends novel is the first in a trilogy chronicling the rise of the fearsome Sith lord Darth Bane.
 
“A solid space adventure [that] charts the evolution of an antihero almost as chilling as Darth Vader.”—Publishers Weekly

On the run from vengeful Republic forces, Dessel, a cortosis miner, 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, a far greater destiny awaits him.

As an acolyte in the Sith academy, studying the secrets and skills of the dark side, Dessel embraces his new identity: Bane. But the true test is yet to come. In order to gain acceptance into the Brotherhood of Darkness, he must defy the most sacred traditions and reject all he has been taught. It is a trial by fire in which he must surrender fully to the dark side—and forge from the ashes a new era of absolute power.

    Amazing job by both the author and narrator. Star Wars canon will only be a letdown with this left out.

    Enjoyable for a Star Wars fan.

  • Sergio C.

    Some people don't like Jonathan's reading, but I rather enjoy it. This story is engaging and fulfilling. Though, if I could change anything, I feel that Bane came to his legendary Rule of Two far too easily. Other than that, this story tells its story wonderfully.

    I can't get enough of the Star Wars universe and the detail in which characters such as earth bane are laid out for you in books like this are gratifying. I highly recommend any of the old republic books but definitely the Darth bane series
