Darth Bane Novel
« on: September 11, 2006, 06:06 PM »
Im really pumped about this. Ive been wanting to read it ever since it was mentioned well over a year ago.

I'm chomping at the bit for some info on some of the ancient Sith, and hopefully this book may answer a lot of questions.

Reading it's write up in the latest insider was pretty cool but they don't list a realease date. Does anyone have an exact release date?

According to Amazon, it's September 26th.  Not 100% guarantee or anything, but they are usually pretty close...

I read it and loved it. I had reservations going into this book, mainly wondering if this character could carry a whole novel. The answer? Yes he can. There are some cool references to the KOTOR games, as well as the Jedi vs. Sith comic book series.

I have it, but I haven't read it yet. I promised myself that I wouldn't read anything else till I finished NJO. Im about halfway through the last book now, so I should be getting to it very soon. Ill post a non spoiler review when Im done.

Qui-George's response is pretty much what I get from everyone that reads it though. It's supposed to be a great book.

Agreed

I received the book as a gift and read it in 2 days..simply awesome;I couldn't put it down.
Recommended reading, definately a bad-ass character. Would like to see a second edition to come portraying his Master/apprentice relationship further and other feats I know of, have read about, the character.

As good as the Bane novel is, I wonder how good the Darth Plagieus novel next year will be?

personally  my expectations for the Plagieus novel are extremely low, due to the fact that they've made him a friggin Muun. what I'm very interested in is what the author was talking about back in '05, about a side by side tale of how both Plagieus and qui-gon where both separately looking for the answers to immortality. and in the end came up with different ways. if this book is like that i'm all for it. if its a rehash of path of destruction, then i'm lost. since what kinda galaxy are we stuck in pre-prequels and post-bane. new era yes, but probably a very boring one.

What I am hoping for in the Plagieus novel is more backstory on Palpatine's training. I'd like a little light shed on that. and I do hope that Plagieus, as a character, is interesting.

about a side by side tale of how both Plagieus and qui-gon where both separately looking for the answers to immortality. and in the end came up with different ways.

I wonder then...Qui-Gon's after spirit life and Plageus' actual immortality..or..*gasp* cloning life continuation?

Hmm.. maybe we should take the last 4 posts here and start up a 'Darth Plageus novel specualtion thread' then?

I had been meaning to pick up this book for a while, and I finally picked it up a few days ago.  So far it's been a good read.  I think the author could have expanded on some things, but Bane has certainly proven to be an interesting character.  And the reasoning behind the Rule of Two seems to be coming into focus.  I'm very interested to see how the followup book featuring Darth Bane and Darth Zannah will unfold.

Has anyone read the 2nd Bane book? I did and I think they easily could have called it Darth Zannah instead of Bane. I wanted to learn about his apprentice but still more about him than I felt the book did. If they were going to concentrate on a different Darth so much why not do the Plagueis book like they were originally.

Yup... I can see your point.   I hope they go back to the Plagueis book sometime too... so much cool stuff to explore!
