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?

    "Excellent Narration"

    It's as much a story about Palpatine/Sideous than Plagus. Great narrator. Story sometimes difficult to keep up with but overall very good. Detailed description of events, characters, places.

    Story
    "The grand scheme of the sith"

    Daniel Davis is probably the greatest narrator in the history of Star Wars literature. Highly recommend book about the secret of plagueis "The Wise" and how much he and his apprentice influenced the republic, before the grand scheme is exceptionally executed.

    Story
    "Best intro to SW books and audiobooks"

    I have long been a fan of th Star Wars universe, ever since my father took me to the cinema to see the original movies, in a special rerun before the launvh of Episode I. I loved every part of it and I have been interested to read one of the books. This was also the first audiobook I head from beginning to end. I have to say that the voices and sound effects were perfectly in tune with the story, but not distractingly loud. This book convinced me to delve further into the universe and Audible itself.

    Story
    "worth a listen or read! "

    A very well written story with great emotion. definitely worth picking up. Over all story was well flushed out and without any spoilers we the reader really get a sense of the inner workings of Palpatine. It also works to fill in some of the gaps left from the first movie which is a huge plus!
