1000 years before New Hope. A showdown between the Sith and the Jedi is taking place. The Sith have become a watered down version of the Jedi, espousing mutual help for mutual benefit. Into this comes a young man who takes on the name of Bane. Through his training he realizes the Sith have fallen from their original precepts and begins to plot. This book introduces us to the “modern” Sith idea of “One Master, One Disciple”. And the Sith mantra, very opposite of the Jedi mantra. Overall, a good light read. Worth buying for its historical roots.
