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.

    "Amazing deep story that complements the movies."

    It complements the story with deeply new insides that makes you wanna look the movies again. It is my first audio book, but i found it to be excellent, great voice acting, sound effects, ambient effects complemented by a superb story with lots of well known characters in new situations that provide another look into them.

    "it was good not great"

    This was a good book, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as some of the other Star Wars books. Good narration and the story had a lot of detail and filled in and overlapped Episode 1 in an interesting way.

    "Good if you don't mind a story that spans decades."

    It felt a bit disjointed to me in how many of the chapters were so disconnected from the one previous. This lead me to not being able to concentrate on the story at times. Ultimately I'm going to have to re-listen to the story to get the full experience.

    Story
    "Daniel Davis is a brilliant narrator."

    Davis uses like 30 different voices, all of them sounding different. book seemed more about Sidious than Plaguis. All in all great read....errm listen.

    "Boring"

    Took too many cues from Episodes 1, 2, 3.

    Midichlorians: boring.
    Trade talks: boring.

    Dialogue is better than the travesty that Lucas directed.

    Don't know if I can finish.
