This is the last novel in WHO IS BANE SERIES. It can be read alone if you are familiar with basic story of Batman. However I recommend to read it as a sequel to DARKNESS RISES (BOOK 1) and SHADOWS RISES (BOOK 2). The final episode explores the love story of Talia and Bane in League of shadows, but Bane was excommunicated by Ra's al Ghul for his love for Talia. Ra's was also infuriated that Bane reminded him about his dead wife. Bane plans to work alone.
