“Through victory, my chains are broken.” – Star Wars: Darth Bane – Rule of Two

The second in the Darth Bane trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn, Rule of Two picks up right where Path of Destruction left off, on Ruusan after Lord Kaan set off the thought bomb killing himself and his Brotherhood of Darkness, along with General Hoth and 100 Jedi from the Army of the Light.  Rain has attached herself to Darth Bane and he has accepted her as his apprentice.  The Jedi believe that all the Sith are now dead, except one Jedi Padawan, Johun Othone.  However, no one believes his claim.  Ten years later and Zannah is now deep into her Sith training as Darth Bane searches the universe for information to create his own Sith Holocron. 

A great episode in the Star Wars saga, The Rule of Two immediately sucks you in to Bane’s mind, as scary as that is.  Drew Karpyshyn has actually made Darth Bane and his apprentice … likeable.  You almost feel that if only they had one more chance, they would play with puppies and bake cupcakes.
