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?

From the Hardcover edition.

    "The Force is with this Book!"

    I've read lots of Star Wars books, but this one is my favorite. James Luceno is a great writer, and this is a great story. The performance is great too. I am going to enjoy listening to this again!

    "fun"

    It was a very fun story and provided a new perspective through which one may understand the prequels. Even though these movies weren't the best, the creativity they have spawned is awesome

    Story
    "My new favorite Star Wars novel."

    Wow. This is the screenplay that should've been the first half of Episode I. If anything, I lament the fact that Disney dumped works like this in favor of Chuck Wendig's Aftermath, which was an absolute train wreck. The difference in the sheer caliber of writing is excruciatingly palpable. The production value gets an A+ as well. The narrator was exquisite for the roles and voices he portrayed, and the sound quality and ambient effects added a lot to the experience. We can only hope that once Kathleen Kennedy is finished using Star Wars as an activism platform dumping ground, Disney wises up and brings back authors like this to once again do Star Wars some real justice.

    Worth a listen despite it's considered Legends. Listen to the dark fall of the Jedi.

    "Fantastically made audiobook!"

    My first audiobook, and I will listen to it again some time. Theatrical elements from the narrator makes it even better. 10/10.
