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 little too political, but cool tie-in"

    The performance was good, and all of the voice acting was great, but it was a little boring in parts where all he was describing was political maneuvering. And there is not a lot of action.

    "Dull story"

    Really boring story. There was like 5 minutes of excitement but that is all. The title of the book is misleading. The book is about Palpatiene. The narrator was ok.

    "Loved it!"

    Well told story of the background of Plagueis and Sidiois. Flows and fits smoothly with Star Wars: Phantom Menace. Definitely worth the time and money.

    "Entertaining"

    I love any Star Wars story. I couldn't stop listening to this one. This story fills a lot of gaps and answers a lot of questions about how Palpatine got his start.

    A good read. Enjoyed reading an opposing viewpoint from the Sith and their workings in the Star Wars universe. I recommend it!
