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.

    "Brilliant and well executed!"

    This audiobook will keep you on your toes as you experience the life of Darth Plagueis and the various characters he encounter.

    With Daniel Davis' fantastic voice, music from the movies and a plethora of well timed sound effects, I believe that everyone and anyone can enjoy this auditory marvel.

    As a fan of the Star Wars universe, I absolutely recommend til book. It's worth every single penny you give for it. This is also an excellent choice for your first audible book which you get for free. A better deal is hard to come by.

    Thank you James Luceno for a fantastic experience. I look forward to either listening to or reading your other works.

    "Good Backstory to Episodes 1-3"

    The book is more about Sidious than Plagueis. Will make you appreciate episodes 1-3 more.

    "It was good"

    It was good. It starts out slow. It gets better as it goes on. If you are interested in Plagueis backstory
    This is it.

    "Slow and unexceptional"

    While the background story of how Senator Palpatine became a Sith Lord is very interesting, I found the book to be very slow and boring. There was virtually no suspense or excitement. The book trodden along at a slow pace and could get confusing at times. It was an unimaginative story. I nearly stopped listening multiple times just because it got so boring. Missed opportunity to tell a great story.
