This story focuses on the Sith long before even the first stories of Annakin Skywalker and Obi Wan. Bane is a miner on the small planet of Apatros where he has spent all of his life, never knowing his mother and enduring an abusive father whom he eventually kills using the Force, although he doesn't realize it at the time. Bane ends up killing a Republic soldier on Apatros after a card game and is forced to flee. Thus begins his journey deep into the Dark Side of the Force.

Bane is encouraged to use his anger and bitterness to make himself stronger and he shuns the traditional teaching of the Dark Lords and looks to the ancient writings to educate himself. Eventually he decides that the only way to save the Sith from mediocrity and destruction is to begin anew with, of course, himself.

I'm not a particularly big Star Wars fan, and this book is an easy read, perfect for teenagers who are huge Star Wars fans. I didn't find the story particularly compelling, but true believers might.
