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 just had a nerdgasm!"

    I enjoyed every moment of this story. I was just expecting to learn more of this universe called Star Wars and then the story just wraps itself in the timeline of the movies and that gave me a NERDGASM!

    Story
    "Ehhh a Story that needed to be told!"

    Darth Plagueis is a story that needed to be told. it Bridges the gap between the Darth Bane series in the present day Star Wars series. the book seems to go on endlessly for the first half and seems to jump from scene to scene without rhyme or reason. However once halfway through the story pics up and begins to get very interesting, especially since Darth Sideous is now in frame. overall good story that sheds light on Darth Plageus and how Episode 1 came to be. 3.5 stars once you get past chapter 16!

    Story
    "Niles meets the Dark Side (and it's not related to CC Babcock!)"

    A great listen for fans of early Sidious lord and fans of a certain sharp witted, oft overlooked butler who verbally sparred with Darth CC and was an alliance partner with a certain Nanny from Flushing Queens.

    "Great Story"

    masterful in it's perfect telling of the rise of Darth Sidious! I would listen again just to get the nuances down. highly recommend it to anyone interested in the background story of most Star Wars characters. despite the book not being Canon it fits perfectly as basically a prequel to The Phantom Menace, explaining the actions of everyone involved in making the story much more clear.
