Publisher's Summary

He was the most powerful Sith lord who ever lived... but could he be the only one who never died?

“Did you ever hear the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise? It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life. He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying." -Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith

Darth Plagueis: one of the most brilliant Sith Lords who ever lived. Possessing power is all he desires. Losing it is the only thing he fears. As an apprentice, he embraces the ruthless ways of the Sith. And when the time is right, he destroys his Master - but vows never to suffer the same fate. For like no other disciple of the dark side, Darth Plagueis learns to command the ultimate power... over life and death.

Darth Sidious: Plagueis’s chosen apprentice. Under the guidance of his Master, he secretly studies the ways of the Sith, while publicly rising to power in the galactic government, first as Senator, then as Chancellor, and eventually as Emperor.

Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious, Master and acolyte, target the galaxy for domination - and the Jedi Order for annihilation. But can they defy the merciless Sith tradition? Or will the desire of one to rule supreme, and the dream of the other to live forever, sow the seeds of their destruction?

    "Long... So long. Trust me, length matters!"

    Great story, but this is just too long. I didn't finish it. I had about 7 more hours to go when I gave up.

    "Some interesting background"

    There is some interesting background in this book re: the emperor and how he came up the Galaxy.

    But it is a little thin on detail and is better for the younger reader.

    "Underwhelming ending"

    Firstly I want to da the quality is amazing, voice acting was incredible. Really enjoyed the immersive modulations of voices and light saber sounds.

    Ties into episode 1, this is my first star wars book wasn't sure what to expect. Filled with action scenes and in depth descriptions if force lore. Though midway through the book politics begin to overwhelm you, and ends in a underwhelming way. Still would recommend!

    "Absolute must read!"

    I often revisit this story. The context of Darth Plagueis within the Star Wars universe is paramount as well as properly interconnected with other equally enthralling storylines.

    "BEST BOOK EVER!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have gone on a listing spree as of late, knocking out 8 audio books in the last 2 months. This book is by far the best one i have ever listened to. What a story.

    "Really enjoyed it."

    Awesome story of the events prior to The Phantom Menace. Loved the multiple voices and sound effects. The back ground music made a nice touch.

    "Great insights for the Star Wars universe"

    We heard about Darth Plagueis in Episode III and now we know how he helped shaped Sideous and the beginnings of the Empire. Makes you think "Is Plagueis dead"? Or has he been the puppet master then and now? Mr. Davis was outstanding as the narrator.

    Story
    "Great preface to Episodes 1-3"

    This book gives greater insight into how the Clone Wars came into being: specifically how they were engineered to bring about the downfall of the Jedi.

    The backstory of Plagueis vs Sidious was intriguing, and the author put significant effort into weaving the story into the fabric of the Star Wars universe. There were numerous references to other characters and events part of the canon.

    Well-written and excellent narration make this audible book a must-have for Star Wars fans

    "Amazing experience."

    I usually listen to biographies and historical books, so the production (voice acting, music, SFX) were an extremely welcome and ravishing spectacle. The story itself doesn't stifle the performances, instead it is enhances and complimented by them. Truly a spectacle if it's your first venture into the old SW EU like me.

    "The Eyes"

    I've never read or listened to a Star Wars book before, but I've seen all of the movies several times, and played a decent amount of their games. The story is impeccable albeit heavy on the political side, which all of Star Wars is really. The visuals that were painted as I listened were bar none comparison to the films. I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking to get a little of what's going on outside of the films.
