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?

    "Origin story done right"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the masterful storytelling contained within Darth Plagueis. Overall, the narrator did a fantastic job representing the characters, although there were a few scenes I feel could've been performed differently. I am curious, however, how much of this story is still considered canon after Disney's meddling.

    "Awesome"

    This was my first Star Wars book and I hope it didn't ruin the ones that follow. Couldn't stop listening, explains the politics that occurred before the clone wars, explains the Sith, so entertaining, just amazing.

    "A solid story"

    I loved hearing the actions preceding episode one as well as some of the episode one story from the perspectives of the soon to be emperor. My only problem with the story was the long sections of pure exposition either through dialogue or narration. But I understand that telling the story of those sections in other ways would have doubled or even tripled the length of the book and may have caused the story to lose the central focus. That being said, I was greatly entertained by the story and performance.
