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.

    Very well written. Story weaves seamlessly between established story lines and new ones the author has created. I can't recommend this enough.

    Story
    "From a certain point of view"
    What did you like best about this story?

    hearing the back story of where Darth Plageous came from and how Palpatine aka Sidious was training added a lot of need detail for the first three episodes. It really gives you a back story of the Siths from all three movies leading up to Revenge of the Sith. Especially hearing it from the Sith's point of view


    What about Daniel Davis’s performance did you like?

    great audio


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    most definitely

    "very good."

    a very good story, focused alot on the politics, and less on the actuall training wich im used to in these kinds of books, but a good story none the less. the narration was superb, great voice and great voice acting from Daniel Davis.

    "Should have been the first movie!"

    This would have made the fans understand so much more about the Star Wars Universe if it was the first movie instead of Phantom Menace.
