Star Wars Darth Bane Dynasty Of Evil is the final book in the Darth Bane trilogy and a great conclusion to the series. Of course Bane returns, and with his apprentice in tow, sets out on another grand adventure. I feel that this book did take just a little longer then the previous two to get started, but once it gets going it's captivating. This is one of the very few Star Wars tales that has you rooting for the bad guy.

All in all this novel doesn't disappoint. The final chapter is a worthy conclusion and the whole tale is woven beautifully together. It's a wonderful peek into the times of the Old Republic. ( )

Darth Bane plans to ensure his empire by passing his legacy on through a successor, but is his apprentice Zannah truly fit to carry on after Bane is gone? Dwell further into the Dark Side through the third book of the Darth Bane trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn. Star Wars: Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil is filled with action, dark choices, surprises and epic moments. Karpyshyn continues on with what he does greatly in, writing books that fans will love centering Sith living during the Old Republic Era. This book definitely did not fail to entertain.

Karpyshyn (the writer on the excellent videogames Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, and Mass Effect) has an excellent grasp on the viewpoint of the followers of the dark side of the Force, and can make even Sith Lords into sympathetic characters. In the conclusion of the Darth Bane trilogy, the Dark Lord of the Sith, having taken the trouble to eliminate all other Sith and establish the Rule of Two— that there is, at a given time, only one Sith master and one apprentice who will surpass and destroy him— is dubious as to whether his apprentice Darth Zannah is going to be able to be a proper successor to him, and seeks out dark rituals of immortality so the mantle of Sith succession will not fall on unworthy shoulders.

In addition to bringing in some of Darth Bane’s ties established in the earlier books, he also provides a Dark Jedi and a wild-talent dark side assassin for contrast to the more formal philosophy of the Sith. I strongly recommend this trilogy for anyone who needs to create competent, believable villains for their stories and games: none of the characters are mad, cackling evil-for-evil’s-sake; they are all heroes in their own minds.

Not my favorite of the series, but by no means the worst at all. Definitely a strong addition to the story of Darth Bane and Darth Zannah as they go about bringing the glory of the Rule of Two by trying to undermine each other by surpassing the other as much as possible.

Years have past since the events of the last novel, and Bane is growing tired of not seeing Zannah show signs of trying to overtake him in order to follow his rules. Taking drastic measures, both Bane and Zannah work to find out who will become the next leader of the Sith.

A very fun, very well-written take on the days of the Old Republic. Definitely a must for fans of the Sith or of Star Wars in general. ( )
