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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

Good start....

Started off great. The middle took a slump. And the end brought it up. Its a good start to a series and im interested to see where it goes.

Narrator did a solid job.

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.

One of the best!

I read this book when it first came out in hardback. Loved it. When I discoverd Audible I searched every month to see if it had come out yet. That was years ago. When I saw they had put in audible I bought it even though I had no credits. One of the best star was books ever. Get it you'll love it. The last two Bane books are also worth reading. Both are very solid books.

Gripping story, excellent performance.

I had a hard time putting this book on pause. great performance punctuated with sound effects. The fight scenes were properly paced. I enjoyed the varied pace and tone throughout the novel to reflect the context.

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!

Spoiled Revan for me

Overall I liked the story very much, but since this was my first contact with stories outside the Skywalker Saga, I didn't know about Revans story yet. However, in about the middle Bane talks about Revan and spoils stuff I didn't knoiw before.

Gute Geschichte, leider kein Kanon mehr

Gute Geschichte die mich auch gefesselt hat. Freue mich auf Teil 2.
An manchen Stellen, wie schon bei Darth Plagues, ist der Ton plötzlich anders als ob die Aufnahme unter anderen Bedingungen statt gefunden hätte. Stört aber nur minimal und ist sofort vergessen.

Simpel und durchschaubar

Ich war sehr gespannt auf dieses Buch, wird es doch in Star Wars-Community als eines der Besten gehandelt und mir von einem Freund empfohlen.

Daher ist es ein ganz bitterer Tropfen, sagen zu müssen, dass das Buch einfach....unterwältigend ist.

Man darf das nicht falsch verstehen: sowohl Sprecher, als auch Produktion, sind überragend.
Jonathan Davis moduliert seine Stimme unfassbar gut, um das Gesagte auch zu unterstreichen. Die Hintergundgeräusche sind teilweise nervig, größtenteils vermitteln sie jedoch ein lebendiges Bild der Umgebung. Dahingehend nur Lob von mir.

Trotzdem: Darth Bane...eine der wichtigsten Figuren im Expanded Universe wird in diesem Buch zu einem eindimensionalem Schläger degradiert. Seine Entwicklung von einem Minenarbeiter bis hin zum Sith-Lord hatte ich mir größer, epischer vorgestellt und nicht nur als eine simple Erzählung seiner gefühlten 6-Wochen-Ausbildung zum Sith auf der Akademie. Das Ganze wird zudem heruntergebrochen auf etwa ein Dutzend Figuren. Wo sind die Intrigen? Wo ist das große Ränkespiel? Warum lässt sich der Autor keine Zeit für die Charakterentwicklung des wohl wichtigsten Sith?
Hier wäre einer der begabteren Schreiberlinge deutlich besser gewesen.Ich erwarte hier kein Game of Thrones, aber Timothy Zahn wäre z.B. ein besserer Kandidat gewesen.Karpshyns Kapazitäten sind sehr bescheiden.

Kurzum: Simpel, durchschaubar und ganz einfach langweilig!
