Schöpfer der Dunkelheit (Star Wars: Darth Bane #1)
This book features a protagonist whose chosen name is so stupid I refuse to actually use it. For the purposes of this review, he shall be Darth Tickle.
Darth Tickle lives a couple thousand years before Luke ever whines about power converters, born to an abusive father on an unpleasant mining planet. After committing a murder in self-defense, Tickle flees the planet, joining the Brotherhood of Darkness (snicker), and eventually gets recruited by the Si ...more
Think about this quote from Hegel:

A thousand years before The Phantom Menace, Anakin Skywalker, Palpatine, and the Clone Wars, the Sith and the Jedi were large forces and at war with each other. On a God-forsaken world, Apatros, better known for being a source of cortosis, a mineral used in deflecting lightsabers, Dessel mined the tunnels as his abusive father before him. His life is pretty dreary until he plays cards with some Republic soldiers and wins. The soldiers seek to show him ...more
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.
หลังจากที่แทะโลมเรื่องราวของ STAR WARS มามากมายจาก http://starwars.wikia.com แต่ไม่เคยอ่านเองจริงๆ เสียที ในที่สุดก็ได้โอกาสทดสอบวิทยายุทธ์ที่ฝึกฝนมาจากอาจารย์ Lehninger, อาจารย์ Abbas, อาจารย์ Burn & Levy, อาจารย์ Katzung ฯลฯ มามากมายกับหนังสือนิยาย STAR WARS เล่มแรกที่ได้อ่าน คือ STAR WARS: Dar ...more
I think Path of Destruction starts out extremely strong. Bane's beginnings and character arc on Apotros was probably my favorite element of the book. Very tight writing and excellent pace. The middl ...more
Science fiction novels, Star Wars titles especially, can get muddled down with technicality, which appeals to some, but I don't want to read a detailed ship analysis, I am more drawn to stories. Drew Karpyshyn delivers a great story, that also is very important to the overall history of the Brotherhood of Darkness a ...more
I think that a lot of the book's problems were that its plot was basically circumscribed by the Jedi vs. Sith comics series from a few y ...more
As a fan of Jedi, I was disappointed in the small glipse of their troops and characters. General Hoth (nice name) was more like a dictator wanna-be than an enlighted Jedi leader. Then there's Farfalla, a vain man who likes to show off his dazzling cl ...more
The only reason I gave this a go was because I had just got a Kobo and it was one of my library's limited selection of ebooks.
However, I'm pleased to say it was a fun read - Darth Bane is a suitably ...more
The steps that characters take are A) really clear when the scheme of things is considered. Bane is the guy, no girls allowed, certainly, no one else can look good for long or live to survive that mistake B) and we get a lot of descriptive prose about it. "Githany couldn't un ...more
This isn't Drew Karpyshyn's worst Star Wars book, but that's not saying a whole lot. The prose is simple and shallow, and what should be epic is simply mundane. To add insult to injury, Karpyshyn runs roughshod over established SWEU continuity with his version of events but fails to improve B ...more
This was a great book. I'm so happy to have read about the Dark Side without the stereo ...more
As you may have already guessed the book is solely dedicated to Darth Bane. Right from the beginning till the end you are told the incredible story of his transformation from just another miner from planet Apatros to a Dark Lord of the Sith.
As a loyal Star Wars fan I have watched the movies dozens of times. However, I haven't really spent enough time exploring the universe more thoroughly. This was my first book of the series and I must say that for someone who began reading it with no high expe...more
El universo de Star Wars es un lugar que rebosa héroes y villanos por todos lados, aunque se mantenga una especie de equilibrio entre ambos y podamos encontrar de todo, desde los tradicionales héroes sin mácula hasta los terribles imperiales que no dudan en llevar a cabo genocidios de especies alienígenas. La figura del antihéroe es bastante popular en la saga galáctica y, para muestra,ahí tenemos a Anakin Skywalker. Y es que antihéroes ...more
Darth Bane is an interesting and thoughtful villain protagonist. Bane's a big guy, bald and muscular (kind of like another well known Bane . . . except that this one doesn't have a mask of any sort). He's also a thoughtful and contemplative villain, espousing his philosophies on strength and power as he works his way up the ladder to becoming a t ...more
