|In the New York Times bestseller Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Drew Karpyshyn painted a gripping portrait of a young man's journey from innocence to evil. That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sithuntil his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order . . . and create it anew from the ashes. As the last surviving Sith, Darth Bane promulgated a harsh new directive: the Rule of Two. Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody the power, the other to crave it. Now Darth Bane is ready to put his policy into action, and he thinks he has found the key element that will make his triumph complete: a student to train in the ways of the dark side. Though she is young, Zannah possesses an instinctive link to the dark side that rivals his own. With his guidance, she will become essential in his quest to destroy the Jedi and dominate the galaxy. But there is one who is determined to stop Darth Bane: Johun Othone, Padawan to Jedi Master Lord Hoth, who died at Bane's hands in the last great Sith War. Though the rest of the Jedi scoff at him, Joshua's belief that there are surviving Sith on the loose is unshakeable. As Johun continues his dogged pursuit of the man who killed his master, Zannah, faced unexpectedly with a figure from her past, begins to question her embrace of the dark side. And Darth Bane is led by Force-induced visions to a moon where he will acquire astonishing new knowledge and powerpower that will alter him in ways he could never have imagined. . . .

This novel is neither as good nor as intricate as its predecessor, Darth Bane: Lord of Destruction. There just seems to be something missing from the story - almost like there needs to be three or four more chapters to flesh out the ideas and storyline that Karpyshyn elaborates. It would have been more gripping if Karpyshyn had gone into the actual training that Zannah received from Bane beyond just the lightsaber (dual-bladed) and simple skills. Nevertheless, the book is a great edition to what will hopefully AT LEAST be a trilogy of books.
Rule of Two picks up right where Darth Bane left off. Bane has found an apparent apprentice in Zannah. He tests her ability to get to a distant planet, where they will establish a camp. She passes with flying colors. Though she is young, Zannah possesses an instinctive link to the dark side that rivals his own. With his guidance, she will become essential in his quest to destroy the Jedi and dominate the galaxy.
Bane desperately searches throughout the entire book to unlock the secret of how to make a Sith holocron, traveling throughout the galaxy to do so. He is infested with parasitic orbalisks which provide him with protection and feed off his dark side energy. This is one of the more creative additions to the Star Wars universe. Definitely a worthwhile read and a worthy work of literature by itself. I look forward to many more of Karpyshyn's works!
Very good series. Nice sequel.
Frequently sequels aren't good. This book was entertaining and well written.
Many of you are reading this review and wondering if they should buy the book or not?
1- If you are a star wars fan: Buy it. Start from darth bane: path of destruction.
2- If you like science- fiction books: The same advice goes to you.
3- If you like romantic books: Don't buy it. There is a lot of killing in this book.
But definitely a good read........
This sequel continues right were it left off in the first darth bane. There are new characters in this book, but you won't be lost when reading it.
Darth bane continues his search of knowledge while he teaches the ways of the sith to his new apprentice. Meanwhile, the jedi's are making sure they have destroyed all the sith.
In conclusion......... it is so good, I hope they're will be a lot more of darth bane in the future.
Darth Bane, Rule of Two is the second installment in the Darth Bane storyline written by Drew Karpyshyn.
Rule of two starts right where we left off in Darth Pane: Path of Destruction. Lord Bane has started to train Zannah as his new apprentice.
This book deals with Bane's desire to accumulate more knowledge and continue the training of the Sith! You get to see many interesting aspects of the Sith. Including two more tombs of ancient Sith Lords!
I'm really happy with this book. The storyline was great and there is an awesome ending!
Get the origional book first then read this one.
- Exciting with an Unexpected Twist at the End
- Author is the screen writer for the "Nights of the Old Republic, I & II" CDRom
- Read in two days, couldn't put it down
- Darth Bane, chronicles the growth of his apprentice Darth Zannah
- Traces the growth of Lord Hoth's padawan learner, Johan Othone
- Novel set in era of early Old Republic which is hard to find
- Just Read It! You won't be sorry, worth every penny...
The book has a great story line and even tells the history of how one of the star wars planets got its name and the weather condition it has in the star wars movies. It also tells about how and where the jedi order was first established. The only thing about the book is that the jedi are so weak when they're fighting the sith in this book. Even if the jedi out number them. It has many unexpected turns in the story and will keep you guessing throughout the story. I would definatly recommend that you read the first book before reading this one, because if you don't you will be completely lost when reading. It's a great book and would definatly recommend to any star wars fan.
