The pacing of the book was excellent and the new characters introduced helped raise the tension as the book built to its climax. There seemed to be many ways for the story to end still, even with only 20 pages left. And that is a great compliment for any book or author.
I still believe the Darth Bane books are the best of the Expanded Universe books, even better than the Timothy Zahn trilogy that started them all.
"Dynasty of Evil" finds Darth Bane feeling vulnerable. Physical ailments are becoming more apparent, and Bane is certain that his apprentice Darth Zannah has noticed. The time for the apprentice to become the master is drawing near. Bane questions whether Zannah is a worthy apprentice and begins a search for the secrets of immortality.
But even as Bane seeks self-preservation, Zannah plans her path as Darth Lord of the Sith. She discovers the vary flaws in herself that Bane recognizes. Unaware that Bane is trying to seek immortality, she even finds an apprentice who combines the suave of James Bond with a college slacker. The Jedi hover in the background of the story as the Sith take center stage. Characters from the previous books reappear and play a key role in the book. Even naming the characters would risk revealing the ending.
For a moment, I thought the endig would be inappropriate. Without giving the ending away, Karpyshyn chose the correct way to end the series. My only regret is that the series is over. Darth Bane is an incredibly compelling character.
Bane has aged quickly from the various stresses of his life and really wants Zannah to take him on before Bane's strength fades. After all, being cut down in your prime means you've trained a really fine apprentice. An apprentice that waits until your feeble. sigh. Not worthy. Meanwhile, he's taught Zannah the value of patience. Maybe too well.
Zannah, meanwhile, is making sure she's learned as much as she's going to from her master. She already thinks she might defeat him. Also, she wants to have a worthy apprentice lined up before the big fight. It's a rule of two, not a rule of one. Good apprentices are hard to find. There are flawed and mediocre ones. She's got to chose one sometime.
So, Bane is busily trying to make sure he'll be strong enough long enough to pass the title to someone worthy. All the while hiding his plan from Zannah. Zannah is getting her own plan lined up while trying to keep Bane from knowing what is coming when.
It's no spoiler to say that they do resolve the conflict.
