«Star Wars - Darth Bane (II): Rule of Two»

by Drew Karpyshyn, Science fiction

This book came together in the space of only six months-an unbelievably short time to transform an idea into a finished work on the shelves. I'd like to thank
everyone at Lucas Licensing Ltd. and Del Rey Books who was part of this incredible accomplishment, along with a special thanks to my wife, Jennifer.

Without her help and understanding I don't think this would have been possible given the deadlines I was working under. But most of all, I'd like to thank all the fans who bought Darth Bane: Path of Destruction. Without your support, this sequel never would have happened. You have my sincere and humble gratitude.
