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.

    "Not at all what i expected"

    This was not a story of jedi battles and sith conflicts as you might expect from the Plaguise book. There were only a few battles/conflicts in this entire 14&1/2 hour story. The rest is people talking politics. Yes, it gives a great view as to what leads up to Episode 1, and even 2, but it was just so painfully unexciting that i could not get into it. If you want a star wars story with jedi, sith, and a plot that makes you want to listen to the whole book in one sitting, then listen to Revan. If you want to hear senators and Banking Clan "financiers" talking, then this is the book for you. And i think im gonna explode if i hear the phrase "a long moment" one more time.

    "Plagueis the wise"

    incredible story from beginning to end. Darth Plagueis is one of the best characters in the star wars universe. I'm a fan of Luceno's work he completely knocked this one out of the park. Daniel Davis' performance was magnificent, it's a shame that this is the only star wars book he has covered.

    "This book Darth Plagueis"

    This book Darth Plagueis has been by far the best Star Wars book I've ever read..From the first sentence to the last..Tne story grabbed me instantly. Even in knowing how it would end. It did not let me go until it was over. I did not want it to come to an end. I wanted to keep going. The narration of the book gave Plagueis in life unto himself. I only hope that there are more Star Wars books like this one. The others I've read haven't been as in depth as this or as well told. This one was special.

    "hard to turn it off"

    I listened to this audiobook during my commute to and from work. I often found myself sitting in the driveway after I had gotten home sucked into the story.

    "Great Story, Great Narration."

    You can start here, no need to begin with a previous book or anything. Daniel Davis does a great job with voices, speed, and luring you into a universe that we all know and love.
