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?

    "Intriguing!"

    This book is well written and enormously imaginary. The narrator does a perfect job of helping you bring this adventure to life. I could literally picture it all going on like a movie in my mind. I didn't want it to end!

    What did you love best about Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    I loved the pace, I had avoided this book for some time but gave it a try and i couldn't stop listening to it. It was So fun and exciting knowing what was going on in the back ground of Episode 1. Who Maul, was, Where he came from Dooku's fall. the Creation of the Clone army. Awesome


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the Apprentice betrays his Master.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    "A worthy addition to the Star Wars universe!!!"

    This book was great I loved learning about Palpatine A.K.A Darth Sidious's Master Hego Damask A.K.A Darth Plagueis and his story and how he became a to be a Sith and all. The siry was awesome and great I loved it, I also loved the sound effects from the Star Wars universe, the narration was great as well and often sounded like their characters or what I would think a character would sound like Hego Damask. Love this book and recommend to all Star Wars fans, a definite must read and have!!!
