Star Wars: Darth Bane : Path of Destruction October 29, 2006

Posted by showmescifi in sith, Star Wars, Star Wars Expanded Universe Books, starwars.

I’ve always wondered about he ancient Sith. How did the Jedi defeat them a thousand years before ANH anyways? Finally there is a book (not a comic book or a video game) that details the last great era of Sith vs Jedi before the Star Wars movies begin.

The book is a riveting tale of Darth Bane the Sith who decides on the rule of two, Master and Apprentice. Much like Anakin Skywalker, Bane is the chosen one (in this case the Sith’ari). He’s supposed to be the ultimate Sith and he is. The plot is crisp the writing style excellent. Two thumbs way up!! This is a real winner and perhaps the finest novel ever written about the Dark Side of the Force and the Sith.
