Thousands of years before the rise of Darth Sidious and Darth Vader, the Old Republic was rife with the evil Sith, who were a constant thorn in the side of the Jedi. But greed and hunger for power were eating away at the Sith Order, destroying it from within. In the midst of this rose a new Sith, Darth Bane, who recognized that the Sith Order would fall if nothing was done. Thus it was he who, learning to cultivate patience and cunning, hid from the strife until it was over, and then rose to become the most powerful Sith Lord ever. This is the story of the transformation of Des, a young miner, into the legendary Sith Lord Darth Bane. Des - like many of the disenfranchised who live on the Outer Rim - is disillusioned with the stagnancy of the Old Republic. When the Sith unite to bring the Republic down, Des is one of many to join their cause. His heroism and skill in battle - along with his remarkable connection to the Force - draw the notice of the Sith Masters, and Des eventually finds himself studying at the Sith Academy on Korriban. He takes the name of Bane and, amidst the deception and back-stabbing of the other students, he learns to unlock his latent dark-side talents. As his power grows, Bane realizes the Sith have lost their way. Under the leadership of Lord Kaan and his Brotherhood of Darkness, the Sith have turned their back on the true nature of the dark side. Through manipulation, cunning and strength, Bane destroys Kaan's Brotherhood and wipes out all the other Sith so he can found a new Order based on the rule of two: one Master, one apprentice.

This is, of course, one of the books that became a part of the non-canon, legends/expanded universe series when Disney bought the rights to Lucasfilm. Given when it was set, however, a bit more than 1000 years before A New Hope, the chance of it ever really being changed by the canon material is little or nothing. It tells the story of the Sith in their final days as an entity, and how the rule of two (one master, one apprentice) that was laid out in the prequel trilogy came to be.

It tells the story of a man named Des, that worked basically as an indentured servant on a mining world. After escaping the mines he ends up at a Stih academy, the main training ground for Sith with the potential to become masters, and eventually becomes Darth Bane, the Sith Lord who instituted the rule of two. The plot of the story is mostly about the infighting occurring between the Sith while a war between the Sith and Republic/Jedi is coming to a head. I will not give away anything more of the story for those who have not read it, but even if you can pretty much guess where the story ends up, the author does a good job getting the readers there without making it too predictable. Another part of the book that worked well was weaving in some of the ancient Sith backstories, mainly about Darth Revan, who was a character introduced in one of the video games, and later had a stand-alone novel written about him, but set mostly after he had returned to the Jedi order.

The expanded universe novels tend to range in quality. This is definitely one of the better ones (in my opinion anyway) and if you are a fan of the Star Wars Universe in general, and can accept that this is a story outside of the "Skywalker" line of stories, then it is definitely worth checking out.
This book is the first Star Wars novel I've picked up and I cannot properly express how exquisitely this book is written. Drew Karpshyn has made this story practically tangible and I can imagine each part of the novel in great detail. The action is unparalled -- both thrilling and clear -- and the twists/psychological capstones of the book are intellectually designed. The stories of the Old Republic make an appearance that is significant to the story, but you really don't need to have played Knights of the Old Republic to know what is going on. Albeit, it is an extremely cool connection you get to make as the reader, knowing of the ancient Sith Lords before even Revan or the Exile. It is such a shame that Disney claims these are no longer canon, but these books are so masterfully made and no matter what they say or do, these books define the true Star Wars universe to me.
The story of Darth Bane's journey from a cortosis miner with an abusive father to a member of the Dark Brotherhood to reigning Sith Lord is a fascinating, amazingly entertaining read.

Science fiction novels, Star Wars titles especially, can get muddled down with technicality, which appeals to some, but I don't want to read a detailed ship analysis, I am more drawn to stories. Drew Karpyshyn delivers a great story, that also is very important to the overall history of the Brotherhood of Darkness and the history of the Lords of the Sith.

It is well written and compelling, plenty of story, plenty of humanism to pull you in. There are satisfying obligatory battle scenes, constructed really well, and presented in a way that makes you care about the losses and the cost.

One thing I didn't anticipate was my own reaction to the philosophy. I found myself identifying with many of the faults in the Jedi philosophy, their code of honor, strict line of morality and it really helped me understand how some, so skilled, intelligent and capable like Bane, might find themselves on the opposite side of the spectrum.

The characterization is superb, and each has a distinct purpose in the book and I had my favorites and I had those that I despised, yet all were interesting.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves science fiction, being a Star Wars aficionado is not a requirement, you will love this book.
Okay, so I have to admit up front that I am not a big fan of reading for pleasure, however, the Darth Bane Trilogy had me on the edge of my seat, arguing plot lines with myself in my head, and staying up later than normal just to see what happens in the next chapter. I love all things Star Wars and have played countless Star Wars video games, board games, card games, RPGs and I own a large amount of memorabilia and action figures. First thing, if you've ever played the Knights of the Old Republic video games then just buy these books and trust me when I tell you, you won't regret it. The author, Drew Karpyshyn, was a writer for those video games and these books tie in with a lot of things that happened in the games, which gives the reader a sense of familiarity with the story and the characters involved. Bane himself is just the perfect leading role, hate him one minute, love him the next, hes a legit roller coaster ride of emotion. Since this is just a review for the first book I won't get into anything else story-wise and leave you (the review researcher) with this; I am very picky when it comes to Star Wars and what I think is good for the franchise, these books, are some of the best Star Wars material I've read, seen, heard since The Clone Wars television show started back in 2008. So from one Star Wars fan to another, do yourself a favor and buy this trilogy.
This is the first book in the Darth Bane trilogy. It introduces Star Wars readers to a man who will forever change the power structure of the Sith. If you are just beginning to read Star Wars novels, this book is a great start. Drew Karpyshyn is a great author and any of his other Star Wars novels would be good reads as well.

Another great option is reading the Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn, the first Star Wars novels written after the original movie trilogy.
