PATH OF DESTRUCTION
The first book, Path of Destruction is almost like the anti-Harry Potter. The story begins with Bane's dreary life on the mining world of Apatros. As he flees, he joins the Sith army and rises through the ranks. Like Harry Potter for magic, Bane is discovered to be particularly strong in the Force and trained at the Sith Academy on Korriban. Only, in this anti-Hogwarts, the apprentices engage in cutthroat competition and learn how to harness their hatred.
Unlike his peers, Bane forges his own path to the Dark Side, which makes him all the more interesting. Like Vader, Bane wasn't irredeemably evil, yet his transformation is both complete and chilling. After suffering so many setbacks and traumas, Bane adopts a Darwinian philosophy proclaiming that only the strongest Sith should wield power. Path of Destruction juxtaposes this with the reigning Brotherhood of Darkness, which stresses unity and equality against the Jedi.Read more ›
The second book is less good as the first, but still fun to read, and the third better than that. I definitely recommend the Kindle version, as it's so much faster/easier to read than traditional but that's just me.
Overall, a MUST for Star Wars fans
There's a clear reason that the books are NY Times bestsellers. There is an ample amount of imagery and description for a set of characters and worlds, but also leaves enough room for your own mind to fill in the blanks and assume certain things based on the things you've seen from Star Wars in the past. In my opinion a perfect balance between letting you imagine the story, but also giving you enough information that you see the story unfold right before your eyes.
Now whats really great is that you get all 3 in one package, which means you don't need to hunt the rest down, and they all flow right after one another. If you're looking for a way to kill time till episode 8, or about to hop on a long flight, I say download all three, and even if you read a few pages a night, you will enjoy the experience of experiencing the world of Star Wars through a different channel.
However, no story has yet filled in more of the history of the origins of the universe than the Darth Bane trilogy. I had always seen and heard of Rakata items and lore, but it was not until this trilogy that I associated them with the beginning of the force users. Similarly, I'd helped destroy the infamous Starforge, but I had a hard time placing its significance in the grand scheme of the universe as a whole (rather than just isolated to that video game series).
The story of Darth Bane helps readers make the transition from the Sith as they're represented in the Old Republic to the Sith as they're seen in the movies. The trilogy is packed with Star Wars history and is a must read for any Star Wars fan. Aside from its historical significance, it's an enjoyable read.
The story follows no more than three protagonists at a time, balancing your attention span against the need to cover conflicting and intertwining stories; and the characters are relatable (as relatable as fictional beings can be), and the writing style is light, enjoyable, and fun.
All-in-all, I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Sci-Fi, is thinking about beginning their Star Wars journey, or is simply looking for a quick and easy read.
