Publisher Comments:

“Two there should be; no more, no less.

One to embody the power, the other to crave it.”

-Darth Bane, Dark Lord of the Sith

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, Dessels 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.

“A solid space adventure [that] charts the evolution of an antihero almost as chilling as Darth Vader.”

-Publishers Weekly

I've been wanting to start reading into the Star Wars extended universe for awhile now. After not knowing where to start, I was gifted this book and let me tell you: it was EVERTHING I dreamed it would be! Impressive characters, crazy lightsaber battles, galactic war, deception, the works! I would find myself sympathizing and rooting for the main character only to remember that he was a Sith! He is evil! No rooting for him allowed! Fantastic book about the origins of the Sith's Rule of Two. A must read for Star Wars fans!
