Book Review: Path Of Destruction

The Dark Side Of The Force

Drew Karpyshyn’s Path Of Destruction (2006) tells the story of Darth Bane. I’ve always approached the Star Wars universe from the viewpoint of the Jedi Knights. I was curious to see what the universe looked like through the eyes of the Sith.

Sith Doctrine

The original Star Wars movies don’t really go into the Sith’s approach to using the force. As the story progresses, the reader gets to dive deep into the Sith teachings. The stroy follows Bane from his humble beginnings until he becomes a Sith lord and takes an apprentice.

Final Thoughts

If you ever wanted to know more about the Sith lore, this would be a great place to start. I liked the book because it made me view the universe from a different perspective. The tone of the book is dark, but Karpyshyn did a great job in making it easy for the reader to sympathize with Darth Bane. I recommend this book to any Star Wars fans who like anti-heroes stories.
