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.

    I came because of my new kindle and then decided to stay because of my love for Star Wars audiobooks.

    Story
    "Behind the Scenes Plotting has never been so fun!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    Spoiler Alert!





    Last Warning!




    When Plagueis was murdered by Palpatine and the latter was declared Supreme Chancellor the next day. Palpatine’s speech had me at the edge of my seat the entire time.


    What about Daniel Davis’s performance did you like?

    The voice acting for the titular character, Darth Plagueis the Wise, was extraordinary. It really enhanced my enjoyment of every scene where he spoke.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled at both Palpatine's and Plagueis intitial reaction to Anakin's existance. It was priceless.

    I can't remember tearing up during the book but I experienced a nightmare that I am really pretty sure was triggered by Palpatine's terrifying act before becoming Plagueis apprentice. Well played, James Luceno.


    Any additional comments?

    I was gutted when I realized this book was not canon anymore. A few details within were re-canonized in the Tarkin new canon novel but just like how Timothy Zahn was allowed to personally reintroduce Grand Admiral Thrawn, the fan favorite character he created in the Legends continuity, back into the canon with an upcoming novel, James Luceno should be allowed to re-canonize Plagueis's backstory with a book one day.

    "Daniel Davis makes the book amazing. Great story."

    I'm not sure I would have read the book. but when I heard the sample of Daniel Davis speaking I knew I had to listen to the entire book. I hope he will narrate other books in the Starwars universe. I am not sure if this book follows all of the storylines but either way it's entertaining and I recommend it.

    "solutely stunning the detail in the story is amazi"

    the amount of detail put into the story of this book is stunning. not only that it fills in gaps of the prequel trilogy which is something I give a big thumbs-up to.

    "good story. just slow at times"

    I really had to force my way through this one (no pun intended). I love the universe that is fleshed out but it just gets sluggish and I wander off and have to restart chapters. overall I'm glad I got to listen.

    "absolutely amazing!!"

    For those fans that were left unhappy with star wars episode 1, this book does it Justice and gives us those lost crucial information ( and moments) that were never shown in the movie. The origin story of Palpatine Is a must to know for everyone interested in how he controls the galaxy through the shadow.
