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.

Really good narrations a bit confusing story wise in the beginning but it really picks up 1-2 hours in

10/10 By far my best reading/listening experience. I listen to all three books at least once every couple of years and the first book is my favorite. Thrilling story, fantastic reading and great immersion with the background sound and music. I only wished there were more books like this as I have not found anything of similar caliber. And despite all the evil deeds done by the protagonist, you kind of root for him. Have never experienced that before. If only someone did Bane right by making a television series as dark and cold as him.

Tediously old gender roles: the women seem to exist solely to be saved by men. The women look forward to “budding” so they can be given to a man to make babies, preferably male. The women wear thick skirts and petticoats which seems to make it harder to run away from the demons. Apparently if you’re a woman wearing trousers is a more terrifying proposition than being burned and/or mauled by a coreling (demon). It’s all too predictable and dumb.

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

Great audiobook and one of my favourites in the Star Wars universe. Loved the Bane character and story moves at a good pace throughout. By the time you get to the end you'll be ready to purchase the second in the series!

A fantastic story of the other side of the Force. Bane is easily the most compelling character in the Star Wars universe.
