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.

    Story
    "It will change your opinion of the prequels."

    This book will serve to build a structure surrounding episode 1 that will give the listener new nuance and perspective. So many things that are not properly explained will suddenly make sense.

    This book is a great look into the beginnings and behind the scenes of what lead to the creation of both Palpatine and Anakin. The readings were well done and enjoyable.

    "Use Daniel Davis as the narrator more often."

    Good story with outstanding narration, which made it into a better than average audio.

    "Definitely One of The Best"

    This novel is among my top 3 Star Wars stories. I've always admired the character of Palpatine because of his masterful execution of his plan and learning how he came to be a Sith as well as his master. This is a must read for any fan of the franchise.

    "Wow!"

    This book is essential, even though it is no longer cannon, it gives you an insight into what happens between Plageuis and Sidius, and the events leading to The Phantom Menace.
