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.… (més)

Star Wars is the gift which keeps on giving. It avoids the fluctuating zeitgeist of the times to emerge renewed, and what can be more symbolic of this continued rebirth other than the Old Republic fandom? With ancient lightsabers (not that we can tell), the mystical powers of the force and equal amounts of antagonist Jedi and Sith warring with each other there will always be fresh material for the post-Star Wars generation.

'Path of Destruction' is a telling of the rise and legacy of Darth Bane. Hearken back to the Phantom Menace and remind yourself that Mace Windu and Yoda explain to Qui-Gonn and Obi-Wan that the Sith are only ever two. Why? 'Path of Destruction' offers the entire explanatory story. Bane, originally Des, is a force sensitive miner recruited by the Sith and witness to their infighting. After a sanguinary war in which the Sith foolishly unleash a force bomb rendering a holocaust of all force sensitive Beings within close proximity of the battle, survivor Bane stumbles across the battlefield slaying all Jedi and Sith he comes across.

Finally, he is found by a young force-sensitive girl who he takes under his wing. He renames her Darth Zannah ('Darth' being a Sith honorific) and commences to annihilate all other surviving Sith Lords.

Spoilers aside, 'Path of Destruction' is a meditation on the nature of power. The Sith crave power, this is the very reason for their existence but also their downfall. The Jedi wish to entrust it to the Galactic Republic. Though radically opposed to the notion of Sith Imperialism, Bane is not opposed to Sith dominance. It is this binary which he cleverly exploits to form the rule of two. The Jedis' numeracy will blind them to the existence of two Sith who will forever be eluding them. One Sith will be master, the other apprentice. Ultimately the apprentice will slay the master and take on an apprentice of their own. Through the generations they will aim to corrupt the galactic republic from within.

Karpyshyn weaves a very picturesque and captivating story. I thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

Darth Bane re-established whole, one Sith Master and one Sith apprentice relationship, and this is the story how Dessel the miner became Darth Bane.

This is riveting book for Star Wars fan. I do wish there was more said about the Sith history/mythos. What did Revan "tell" Bane? And the fights, especially ones including light sabers, were disappointing.

Still I couldn't stop reading Banes rise (or is it fall) to the Dark Side.

First dive into lore of SW outside of films and tv shows. Amazing lore. Great audiobook narrator. Awkward track splicing but nice touch with music and sound effects. ( )
