Well after “acquiring” 209 Star Wars novels.  I finished the first one today.  The first one being Darth Bane: Path of Destruction.  Based roughly 1000 years before the events of Episode I.  It’s a look at one of the most powerful and influential Sith Lords in the Star Wars universe, Darth Bane.  He single-handedly destroyed the sith as it was known then and rebuilt it based on the Sith Lords of the past.  Namely Darth Revan and the “Rule of Two.”  The Rule of Two being that there can only be two Sith Lords at any given time.  A master and apprentice.  The book doesn’t cover all of this.  This book basically just covers his origin.  How he went from a lowly miner, to Darth Bane, Dark Lord of the Sith and completely destroyed the Sith as it was known at the time so he could enact his rule of two.  It was a really good read and can’t wait to read the next book in the Star Wars universe.

    What a coincidence.I just read Darth Bane: Path of Destruction over the weekend. It was really good. I started re-reading it yesterday.

    How did you acquire so many Star Wars books? I’ve only read the movie adaptations and the Thrawn series, which was really good.

I’ll likely end up buying this one, but with so many books by so many authors I can’t justify buying them all…if I could even find them all.

    How are the movie adaptations? I was gonna read Episode 1-3 after the next Darth Bane book.

    Gotcha. There are so many books it’s overwhelming. I was thinking of hitting the swap meet to try and find some used ones cheap.

    The movie adaptations are good. They follow the movies pretty closely.

    I just read the new Mass Effect sequel by Karpyshyn and saw that he wrote Darth Bane, then after a trip to his website I found out he was lead author on KOTOR, so it was a no brainer to pick it up.
