Darth Bane: Path of Destruction
Since childhood, Dessel has known only abuse from his domineering father and the dangerous, soul-crushing labor of a miner. Deep in the tunnels of the desolate planet Apatros, endlessly excavating the rare mineral Cotros, Dessel dreams of the day he can escape, a day he fears may never come. Dessel soon gets himself involved in a high-stakes card game. Unfortunately, this ends in deadly violence and he becomes a wanted man.
Dessel fears the vengeful forces of the Old Republic and ends up joining the Sith Army. He becomes part of their war against the Republic and its revered Jedi Order. Even as a soldier for the Sith, his sheer potential with the Force is evident and tested by the Sith Masters. Some consider Dessel tied in with a destiny far greater than their simple war, should he prove himself worthy.
Dessel enters the legendary Sith Academy on Korriban and begins his studies in the way of the dark side of the Force. He embraces his new Sith name, Darth Bane, turning a name representing his fear and weakness into a representation of his anger and power. To become part of the "Brotherhood of Darkness", led by Lord Kaan, he must first overcome the barrier of treachery and deceit cast in his path by other Sith disciples.
To become a true Sith Lord, however, and to bring the galaxy under a new age of darkness, Bane is forced to abandon the corrupted teachings of his former masters, and embrace the forgotten teachings of a true master of the dark side.
Star Wars: Darth Bane: Rule of Two
Now Karpyshyn is back to his Old Republic roots with Star Wars Darth Bane: Rule of Two, the follow-up to Path of Destruction. Rule of Two continues the quest of Sith Lord Darth Bane and, once again, offers readers a refreshing look into the Sith Order outside of the familiar Anakin-Vader paradigm.
The calamitous battle between the Army of Light and the Brotherhood of Kaan has ended on Ruusan. After Kaan and his Sith followers disregarded the primeval rules of the Order Darth Bane betrayed them for their weakness, and the thought bomb that was supposed to tip the war in the Brotherhood's favor instead decimated both sides. Now Bane is the only remaining Dark Lord in the universe, and to rebuild the Order he implements the Rule of Two by taking on the young Zannah as his apprentice. Together they embody the core functional unit of the old Sith, but they'll need more help from the long-dead Lords of the ancient order if they are to survive.
Johun is a Padawan under the former General Hoth and the epitome of a Jedi-in-training, yet one who's known only war. Having been tempered by the harsh battles with the Brotherhood, Johun doesn't give up the fight against the Sith easily, especially when there are rumors on Ruusan's surface of a surviving Dark Lord. But the same bomb that obliterated the Army of Light ground forces also destroyed the Brotherhood, and now all the Jedi must make the difficult transition from war-time soldiers to peace-time counselors. The ensuing years test both Jedi and Sith, as one order struggles to find its niche in a changing universe and the other does all it can to perpetuate its name.
Although Zannah does face her own set of moral dilemmas as she walks down that infamous Path, Karpyshyn wisely avoids the tired Anakin "seesaw effect" that seemed so forced in the prequel Episodes. Instead we get well-written action, fascinating backstory, and extremely believable character development.
By far one of the best Star Wars novels. I strongly recommend you print it out and read it, as it's an excellent read. The torrent consists of part 1 & 2. Be on the watch out for part #3 which is due to be released in December 2009. I'll upload it as soon as it gets on the net ;)
