    Description

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy. Until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy - and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Since childhood, Dessel has known only the abuse of his hateful father and the dangerous, soul-crushing labor of a cortosis miner. Deep in the tunnels of the desolate planet Apatros, endlessly excavating the rare mineral valued throughout the galaxy, Dessel dreams of the day he can escape - a day he fears may never come. But when a high-stakes card game ends in deadly violence, Dessel suddenly finds himself a wanted man.

    On the run from vengeful Republic forces, Dessel vanishes into the ranks of the Sith army, and ships out to join the bloody war against the Republic and its Jedi champions. There, Dessel’s brutality, cunning, and exceptional command of the Force swiftly win him renown as a warrior. But in the eyes of his watchful masters, he is destined for a far greater role in the ultimate Sith plan for the galaxy - if he can prove himself truly worthy.

    As an acolyte in the Sith academy, studying the secrets and skills of the dark side at the feet of its greatest masters, Dessel embraces his new Sith identity: Bane. However the true test is yet to come. In order to gain acceptance into the Brotherhood of Darkness one must fully surrender to the dark side through a trial by fire that Bane, for all his unquenchable fury and lust for power, may not be strong enough to endure...especially since deception, treachery, and murder run rampant among the Sith disciples, and utter ruthlessness alone is the key to survival. Only by defying the most sacred traditions, rejecting all he has been taught, and drawing upon the long-forgotten wisdom of the very first Sith can Bane hope to triumph - and forge from the ashes of that which he must destroy a new era of absolute dark power.

    Incredible production value for poor fanfiction

    This audio book has music, sound effects and a great narrator. All in the service of a very bad novel; not a single relatable or likable character (which by itself could be a creative choice), non sense character motivation, arcs, plot and themes.
    It's solidly in the so bad it's good territory, if you can get past the complete lack of self awareness and occasional misogyny.

    The Force is with Jonathan Davis

    Would you listen to Path of Destruction again? Why?

    Definitely. In fact, I've already "read" it twice. I got the print edition when it was first released in paperback and absolutely loved it. But after hearing Jonathan Davis read it, I would never go back to print. He brought this story to a whole new level.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bane. This is his story, and for good reason. He's not a good guy, but you can't help but cheer for him anyway.

    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I just finished listening to Snow Crash and Jonathan is way better in this one. His voices are far more varied and they suit each character perfectly.

    Any additional comments?

    Path of Destruction is the best of the Darth Bane trilogy and one of the best Star Wars books available. I can easily recommend this to any Star Wars fan, but also to anyone who would enjoy a story about a villain unleashed. The pacing is great, the story is solid, and the characters cannot be beat. This book is well worth a listen.

    Just wow, made the Star Wars interesting again.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Path of Destruction to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the audio uses real sounds from the movies, I felt like I could picture what I heard.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bane, he's a badass beyond belief!

    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    His ability to play different voices without me really noticing it was him, few times I swore there was someone else.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Bane discovered the Unknown Planet.

    Any additional comments?

    Without a doubt the best sic-fi Audiobook I have ever listened to. It was so good, I listen to it a gain, but I have to finish the 2nd & 3rd!

    Thrilling tale

    Any additional comments?

    I know this is completely nerdy of me to say, but I absolutely loved this book!

    It was my first Star Wars book. It came highly recommended and I can now see why. The story line was believable and you really get to know and understand the characters. There was always enough action and twists to keep the story engaging, but not too many to detract from the actual story line.

    On top of that, the performance was extraordinary! There was music and sound effects that, admittedly, made me giggle at first, but then really added something special to the story. They picked a great person to read the story. Davis's voice was almost seductive and made me want to keep coming back to listen. Each Character sounded different and he was really able to show emotion through his words.

    I must admit, I did not get much work done while I listened to this audio book! Great Read! Your credits will not be wasted!

    Great Start to a Trilogy

    What made the experience of listening to Path of Destruction the most enjoyable?

    Adapting the dark side to be an appreciable path rather than just a choice of evil.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Path of Destruction?

    Seriously don't want any spoiler alerts here

    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As a huge fan of listening to the Star Wars books this reader was an excellent vocalist. Most of the other books are by Marc Thompson, who is awesome. I'm glad to know that they can bring in someone else equally as good.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Peace is a Lie, there is only passion.

    Jonathan Davis made this book feel alive. And the audio effects were an incredible touch. I can't wait for the next series. 10/10 would read again.

    Awesome! Movie Worthy!

    This story is so well written and so well performed. The story is dark and ominous very different from most Star Wars books in that aspect, but it really delivers on the plot. It’s the next greatest plot next to the story of Anakin Skywalker’s life.

    Great Story, Fantastic Production

    I really enjoyed "Path of Destruction". I found the story to be compelling and extremely satisfying. The narration and overall production (sounds, music, and voice acting) was exceptional. The characters were captivating and the stories being told from the position of the Sith and the Jedi were expertly done.

    Do I have any complaints? I am not sure that I really have any. For me, this book was precisely what I look for when I listen to or read a book... a fun and interesting escape from reality. I thought the book was narrated to near perfection, it was well written, had great action, excellent dialog, and provided amazing production value through and through.

    This trilogy is the second best out of all the SW books, and the audiobook production does it justice.

    Very inspirational.

    Absolutely love this book. I’ve listened to it more times than I can remember. It has everything a good story needs, PLUS! All the small details to make it from good to great. The vocals are also perfect. Bane’s voice is perfect.

    Bildungsgrundlage für alle Star Wars Fans

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Die Geschichte von Darth Bane ist eine Grundlage für alle Star Wars Fans. Erst durch die drei Bane Bücher (hauptsächlich die beiden ersten) verstehe ich die Siths und die Philosophie dahinter. War wie gebannt und habe die ersten beiden Bücher fast am Stück übers Wochenende gehört. Die Geschichte ist etwas dunkel, geht ja auch um Siths, aber absolut spannend!

    Good story, average execution

    I really enjoyed the story, the main character and the overall plot.
    Sadly i didnt like the writing style of the author.
    He keeps alot of details of scenery, battles and situations very vague and later he adds details, which totally change your perception. Done once or twice it is a interesting plot twist if executed correctly but here i felt always loosing my immersion into the world because i felt like my phantasy build up images and then i had to suddenly change it when Karpyshyn adds new details which totally change the outcome.
    For example, no spoilers, imagine i tell you a story about an elephant and a lion talking to each other and how they try to outwit each other. But when the lion almost finds a way to win against the elephant you suddenly find out how the latter anticipated this and prepared a plan to win himself, because he is actually a elephant with 3 legs and 1 eye who got a pink skin from a radioactive plant that he ate when he was still a human being.
    You will be like; WTF.... this is totally not what i imagined up till now!

    And thats how i always felt about the sudden changes or additions to the narration of the scenes and thats the only reason why i give this book only 4 stars instead of 5 even though i liked this story.

    Fantastisches Buch/Fantastic book

    English below

    Ich kann es jedem nur empfehlen, sich dieses Buch anzuhören, der tiefer in das Star Wars Universum eintauchen möchte und vielleicht auch einen tieferen Einblick in die Philosophie der offensichtlichen Bösen erhalten will.

    Drew Karpyshyn hat es geschafft, einen Charakter der nur als böse bezeichnet werden kann trotzdem so sehr auszuarbeiten, dass sein Denken nachvollziehbar erscheint und für den Charakter schlüssig. Die Entwicklung des Charakters ist logisch zu verfolgen und stellt die Beweggründe der sonst häufig sehr eindimensionalen Sith sehr gut dar.

    Ein absolut fesselndes Buch und meiner Meinung nach das beste Star Wars Buch!

    English:

    I can whole heartedly recommend listening to this book to everyone who wants to dive deeper into the Star wars universe and gain a further understanding of the philosophy of an group that is portrayed as so obviously evil.

    Drew Karpyshyn has managed to delve so deeply into this clearly evil character that his train of thought throughout the book not only can be followed but also seems reasonable if viewed from his perspective. The development of the character is logical and the objectives of the sith in the surrounding media is very well established by the contents of this book.

    A absolutely thrilling book and in my opinion the best work in the Star wars universe!

    Endlich!!

    Ich bin begeistert, endlich mal eine Geschichte im Star Wars Universum die sich weder um Jedi noch die Zeitspanne der Filme dreht. Ein wirklich toller Einblick in die Tiefen der Dunklen Seite. Endlich versteht man die Beweggründe der Sith anstatt sie nur plump als die "Bösen" vorgesetz zu bekommen wie sonst immer.

    PS. Für mich war dieses Hörbuch auch hervorragend zur Erweiterung meiner Englisch Kenntnisse, da ich doch einige Wörter nachgeschlagen habe die mir sonst noch nie begegnet sind.

    This audio book is awesome! Besides a great storytelling, an awesome voice actor und immersive audio effects, this book gives deep insight into the ways of the Sith and the dark side of the force. I am glad there are two more books of this trilogy, so I can further enjoy it.

    the best SW book

    For me the best sw book!
    the first true representation of the dark side!
    it show how dark side and lightside are both correct and at the same time both so wrong.. and how the fine line between them is easy to cross ..

    amazing story and wonderful adventure
