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?

    "Fantastic book, my favorite of all time"

    Every single part of this book is well written and every single part is important. The reading by Daniel Davis is phenomenal; he definitely has a knack for it. It strengthens the Star Wars saga and, in my opinion, is essential for Star Wars canon (even though I don't think it is anymore). I must have listened to this more than 10 times over the past few years.

    "Amazing"

    I began this book believing that it was going to be really good but it blew my expectations away. Also, the first audio book I've listened to and the narrator was much better than expected.

    "Powerful and moving!!"

    This is thee best book of all the Star Wars trilogies. I have read, listen, and watched everything there has to do with Star Wars and I can honestly say I hope Disney makes this into a movie because it will answer so many question and fill in so many holes between episodes 4,5,6 This is a must read for anyone who loves Star Wars and wants to learn about origins of the Sith Lords and where senator Palpatine came from. Just an amazing job a must read!

    "Excellent"

    Voice acting is extremely well done.
    Story is interesting, engaging, and ties in extremely well to the Star Wars Universe.
    Characters are emotionally engaging, and despite the known story, the novel still manages to deliver plenty of surprises. This is by far one of my favorite Star Wars audio books.

    "fascinating background to a beloved story"

    I enjoyed it a lot. Be advised: there is less action and more to do with the politics and philosophical thought concerning the dark side. excellent voice acting.

    "What a great lead into the entire saga."

    Not only does it explain the story of Palpatine/Sidious, it speaks to the possible rumors of who Supreme Leader Snoak is. It leaves off at the beginning of Episode II, which is excellent.
