Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

The history of the Sith was forever changed after Darth Bane's climactic victory at the end of the first book of his lauded trilogy. Decimated by the though bomb, the Order lay in ruins as a single master escaped the planet with his new apprentice, and thus, the Rule of Two was born. This novel continues the masterful legend of Bane as he simultaneously trains the newly appointed Darth Zannah and begins searching the galaxy for the most heralded objects of Sith lore: the fabled holocrons.

Bane's pursuit of this arcane knowledge is treacherous, to say the least, but his raw power and ironclad will encase him with an armor unlike anything the galaxy has ever seen. With his legacy at stake in the form of a brilliant young woman, Bane shows readers once again that he will stop at nothing to create the order that will one day destroy the Jedi once and for all.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

As the last surviving Sith, Darth Bane promulgated a harsh new directive: the Rule of Two. Determined to put this policy into action, Darth Bane thinks he has found the perfect apprentice. Zannah, though young, possesses an instinctive link to the dark side that rivals his own. Under Darth Bane's tutelage, 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 Sith War. Though the rest of the Jedi scoff at him, Johun's belief that there are surviving Sith is unshakeable. But not even Johun could foresee the astonishing new knowledge and power that Darth Bane discovers through Force–induced visions—power that will alter him in ways he could never have imagined.

Staff Comments

Rule of Two, as the title suggests, is all about Darth Bane creating the infamous Rule of Two among the Sith which persisted all the way up until Palpatine and Vader. If you haven't yet read Path of Destruction, do so before reading this book. If you enjoyed Path of Destruction, this book is a no-brainer. Somehow, you'll find yourself cheering on one of the most evil characters in all of Star Wars history.

- Charles Hankel

- Eric Eilersen

Rule of Two is a great follow-up to Path of Destruction as Darth Bane's character development continues to grow. While Bane is on his own personal mission, the chemistry between him and his new apprentice is one to admire. He constantly pushes Zannah to become stronger, and in return for his teachings Zannah acts as Bane's protector. If you're eager for more Sith action with amazing characters, be sure to keep going with this series.
