In the New York Times best-seller 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 Sith - until 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 power - power that will alter him in ways he could never have imagined....

    " A good ending to a Exellent Trilogy. I did not want it to be over. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Hernandez | 2/7/2014

    " Final book and a great ending to the 3 part series I loved all 3 books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickey DeCicco | 2/7/2014

    " Book was awesome. Nuff said. Darth Bane and Darth Rayne kick ass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 2/1/2014

    " Pretty awesome, though my complaints with this book are the same as with the first two... the author has so little faith in his readers that he insists on beating them over the head with what happened through repetition. And I'm not sold on the ending. Overall, it was a very fun read and the trilogy is a wonderful look into the Dark Side. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adam | 1/28/2014

    " This might have been better had I not read it out of order. I didn't realize it was the third one until I was half way through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Ramm | 1/16/2014

    " Awesome conclusion to the saga of Darth Bane. It shows that he fully supported his Rule of Two, in that he knew that to keep the order alive, his destruction was necessary. He taught his apprentice everything he knew, and now it is up to Zannah to teach her apprentice in the same way. I would be interested to see how the life of Set Harth continues as his brief apprenticeship to Zannah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrickderaaff | 1/3/2014

    " The entire Darth Bane trilogy rocks from start to finish! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn Williacy | 1/1/2014

    " By far the best of the trilogy. I only wish that these books were a little longer in length. It seems that by the time the story really starts to get good the book ends. :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kai | 12/10/2013

    " In terms of Star Wars novels, a 4-star affair until the last chapter and subsequent author response to the "confusion". The ending was written poorly and the author is in denial of this. Hopefully his Revan and Annihilation novels resolve themselves in a cleaner fashion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 12/9/2013

    " A great ending to an even greater series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Edwards | 11/5/2013

    " good story. I liked how the different individual story lines eventually came together in the end...this is not the feel-good book of the year however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andi | 10/12/2013

    " a great conclusion to a geeky Star Wars trilogy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaree Francis | 7/18/2013

    " The ending I didn't care for, but I enjoyed this tale overall. How could it end like this?? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vee | 7/10/2013

    " I enjoyed this book, but the Rule of Two was better. I look forward to the continuation of this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Haines | 6/6/2013

    " Just about got 4 stars. didn't really see the point in the epilogue and the story seemed to drag at points. still a good plot though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shane Downton | 6/2/2013

    " This 3rd book finished of a great trilogy, the ending deserves at least another trilogy. "
