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.

    "Awesome"

    Excellent! Foreshadows the entire Star Wars universe as seen in the movies. The reader does a magnificent job of portraying different characters and third own voices

    "Great foundation to understanding the Star Wars Saga"

    Not always a fast moving book. However, I found it to be very entertaining and informative! Fills in a great deal of unknown "foundation" about Plagueis and Palpatine. Definitely recommended!

    Story
    "The best piece of star wars literature out there!"

    This novel answers many questions pertaining to the prequels, notably episodes one and two; and ties up many loose ends in the overarching plot. Being able to flawlessly connect the events leading to the rise of the manipulative and incredibly calculative Darth Sidious has forever changed the way I percieve the prequels and the sith. It's only a shame that they won't canonize it. It is the greatest star wars novel to date, and that's comparing it to current canon material

    "Finally! A 5 Star Production!"

    I enjoyed every aspect of this audiobook from the sound effects in the background to the brilliant reading and voice acting. The story is solid and makes a lot of sense which some of the Star Wars books cannot say. All around awesome production...
