A lot of you know I like Star Wars, but what I really like is the books about all of the Bad Guys in Star Wars! I am totally a Dark Side person and I read ALL the “other” Star Wars books. (I read all of the books you never heard of…)

This book is about Darth Bane, a Sith Lord that was around thousands of years before Luke Skywalker. He is evil, he is a bad guy, he is AWESOME!!!!! (But he is a Sith so he does kind-of…Kill some people…)

The book is about him learning about the Force and the Dark Side, and becoming a Sith. He kills a lot of people, some on accident some on purpose. There is a lot of using the Force when he kills the people, sooooo…. It will be a little described. There are awesome lightsaber fights! (Some people die) A lot of Force using! (A lot of people die) And just plain AWESOMENESS throughout the entire book!

Over all, This is a great book for teens, young adults, and adults! If you are a fan of Star Wars, then I suggest this book series to you! It is amazing-awesome-sooooo-cool-and-just-plain-INSANE!!!!! I hope you all have a wonderful day, and enjoy some books! -The Young Llama Reader.

“Two there should be; no more, no less.
One to embody the power, the other to crave it.”
–Darth Bane, Dark Lord of the Sith

On the run from vengeful Republic forces, Dessel, a cortosis miner, vanishes into the ranks of the Sith army and ships out to join the bloody war against the Republic and its Jedi champions. There, Dessel’s brutality, cunning, and exceptional command of the Force swiftly win him renown as a warrior. But in the eyes of his watchful masters, a far greater destiny awaits him.
As an acolyte in the Sith academy, studying the secrets and skills of the dark side, Dessel embraces his new identity: Bane. But the true test is yet to come. In order to gain acceptance into the Brotherhood of Darkness, he must defy the most sacred traditions and reject all he has been taught. It is a trial by fire in which he must surrender fully to the dark side–and forge from the ashes a new era of absolute power.
