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.

    Story
    "Okay"

    The story is pretty weak. I suppose it does give a little background to the phantom menace and demonstrates its place in a much larger scheme, but it still wasn't very compelling. One technical issue: the music and background noises were quite irritating and distracting much of the time. Philosophically, I found the book reminded me of C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters, with Plaegis teaching Sidious the ways of the dark side and the reader/listener having to constantly remind himself not to follow the evil logic of the Sith. But for all the effort, there is little reward.

    "Superb Immersion into the Sith, Riveting!"

    This is the best Star Wars book I've ever listened to. James Luceno is the finest author in the Star Wars series. His expertise in characterization is unmatched. It was hard to leave this exciting story. This book covers the story of the very powerful Sith Lord and his apprentice Palpatine. Star Wars fans know what happens, but it is a fascinating journey arriving there. Absolutely riveting! Noted character actor Daniel Davis brilliantly handles all voices beautifully and this production is enhanced by John Williams wonderful score and great sound effects. This surpasses Tarkin. A classic, must listen for any Star Wars fan.

    "An Unexpected Favorite"

    After listening to this fantastic story, I'm actually angry that it is no longer considered canon with the the films and TV shows because of how seemessly the events of this book fit into the movie. A great read (listen) overall, I would recommend to any star wars fan

    "Now it ALL makes sense!"

    This is a "must read" for any Star Wars fan! This book fills in SO many holes that were inherent in the prequels!

    The narration by Daniel Davis was outstanding and very compelling! I would HIGHLY recommend any book with his narration as well as the classic Star Wars background music and sound effects.

    It made me not want to stop listening to it!

    "I can't believe..."

    This entire book should be considered Canon, I hope Disney does not go against anything that is mentioned in this book. There is no reason for them to.

    Such a great read.
