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?

    "A great EU story of the rise of Emperor Palpatine"

    A great EU story about the time before the prequels and the rise of Emperor Palpatine.

    "Darth -make up your mind"

    Excellent book!!!! My only (small) gripe is the latter parts of the book focus more on Sideous than Plageius.

    "Disappointing "

    Narration and delivery were amazing as always, but hoped for more in the story. It was mostly politics, but the action scenes and portraition of the characters were superb. Wished for more action and better back story on Tenebrous, but overall, it's ok at best.

    "Excellent performance, very good story overall"

    Daniel Davis does a phenomenal job narrating the story and brings each character to life along side a great soundtrack.

    The story jumps ahead several years at points and that felt a bit jarring but overall it was well paced and excellently written.

    If you like Star Wars this one is a must read/listen

    "Great in every aspect!"

    Loved the book, written great, amazing vocabulary, great pacing and links to the movies incredibly well. Such a shame that it's not canon anymore because it is so Star Wars and adds so much to the Star Wars Universe

    "GREAT book"

    This was a fantastic edition to the Star Wars story line. Unfortunately I learned after the fact that this book is non canonical which is extremely unfortunate. Without giving too much away, it made me want to watch The Phantom Menace again and for once it made sense.

    "One of the best!"

    One of the best books when it comes to the non-canon starwars (pre-episode 1). The voice actor (Daniel Davis) made it to feel so real! 9/10 would recommend.
