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?

    "A good listen on a sleepless night"

    the way this story goes keeps you entertained. it ties into the movies quite well. I for one hope that a certain character from this had a role in The Force Awakens...Supreme leader Snoke is WISE!!!

    Story
    "Great background to the prequels"

    If only half of this had made it into the films....this book really brings to life the political intrigue Dark Side machinations that surrounded and fomented the events in Episode I, giving it far more impact and significance to what was to come in Episodes II and III. Just goes to show just how cheated we all were to the quality of story that ended up being the prequels.

    "Great Star Wars Literature!"

    This was a great book. It's also a great example of Star Wars storytelling at its finest. It does an amazing job of being a great, original story, while still falling in line with all the original movies and stories.
