I may have mentioned before that I don't read a lot of Star Wars novels. I consider myself a casual fan. Like many fiction series, the SW books are very "hit or miss." I have enjoyed some, but I have also found others were not very good. This is one I highly recommend. I think the more "hardcore" fans will definitely appreciate it. I also think more casual readers like me will like it. The book gives the origins of the Sith, explaining why it is that we only see two Sith, a master and an apprentice in the movies and in the later books. Darth Bane, the protagonist, is definitely a bad guy, yet at times a reader cannot help but root for the guy. If you are one of those people who like rooting for the bad guy, then this is your book. The book has good detail in exploring the legend of the Sith, but it also has good action and story to move things along. I read some reviewer here who was not as satisfied with the ending. I think the ending may be quite fitting; it worked for me, but I will let readers decide. Overall, of the many SW books out there, this one is definitely worth picking up.
