Publisher Comments:

Twenty years have passed since Darth Bane, reigning Dark Lord of the Sith, demolished the ancient order devoted to the dark side and reinvented it as a circle of two: one Master to wield the power and pass on the wisdom, and one apprentice to learn, challenge, and ultimately usurp the Dark Lord in a duel to the death. But Banes acolyte, Zannah, has yet to engage her Master in mortal combat and prove herself a worthy successor. Determined that the Sith dream of galactic domination will not die with him, Bane vows to learn the secret of a forgotten Dark Lord that will assure the Siths immortality-and his own.

A perfect opportunity arises when a Jedi emissary is assassinated on the troubled mining planet Doan, giving Bane an excuse to dispatch his apprentice on a fact-finding mission-while he himself sets out in secret to capture the ancient holocron of Darth Andeddu and its precious knowledge. But Zannah is no fool. She knows that her ruthless Master has begun to doubt her, and she senses that he is hiding something crucial to her future. If she is going to claim the power she craves, she must take action now.

While Bane storms the remote stronghold of a fanatical Sith cult, Zannah prepares for her Masters downfall by choosing an apprentice of her own: a rogue Jedi cunning and cold-blooded enough to embrace the Sith way and to stand beside her when she at last wrests from Bane the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith.

But Zannah is not the only one with the desire and power to destroy Darth Bane. Princess Serra of the Doan royal family is haunted by memories of the monstrous Sith soldier who murdered her father and tortured her when she was a child. Bent on retribution, she hires a merciless assassin to find her tormentor-and bring him back alive to taste her wrath.

Only a Sith who has taken down her own Master can become Dark Lord of the Sith. So when Bane suddenly vanishes, Zannah must find him-possibly even rescue him-before she can kill him. And so she pursues her quarry from the grim depths of a ravaged world on the brink of catastrophe to the barren reaches of a desert outpost, where the future of the dark sides most powerful disciples will be decided, once and for all, by the final, fatal stroke of a lightsaber.

Darth Bane's body is starting to fail, aka, he's gettin' old! Is Zannah ready to take over the role as Master? Read to find out! Not as exciting as the first two books but as I got to the point where the plot started to really come together I couldn't put it down! Not too sure how I feel about the ending... It wasn't a very satisfying ending as it leaves a lot open. Regardless, I still felt that overall it was a fun book to read and a very addictive series! Check it out! Remember, if we want to defeat the Sith, we must learn all we can about their history. So do your part!

Decent story line - Some history on Darth Bane, inventor of the Sith Rule of Two. Story centers on 2 conflicts, one between Darth Bane and Serra, Force-sensitive human healer. The second between Darth Bane and his first apprentice Zannah and enactment of the Rule of Two. Introduction Huntress and her involvement with Serra and the Sith and Huntress' induction as a Sith apprentice.
