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?

    This is my first audiobook and I have to say it has been amazing! Absolutely loved Star Wars: Darth Plagueis. I\'m a huge fan of the Star Wars universe, this story goes into great detail of the universe and the time in which it is set in. There has been a lot of work put into this story and the sound scape. The narrating was brilliant too, the perfect voice for Sith Lords. I truly hope at least some of this story can become cannon one day. A masterpiece in my mind. I feel like this story has really helped me piece together and make more sense of and appreciate the prequel episodes and the Sith lore. I didn\'t want it to end.

    I thought this was probably one of the most boring star wars books I have ever listened to. I understand and liked the story it told, but was so dry and lacking action.

  • Jeremy Berryman

    What an amazing narrator who takes you on one of the best epic Star Wars adventures all with one voice! Bravo! Where is the enzyme book? A must read for all true Star Wars fans.

  • Everett Coleman

  • Anthony Onstott

    An excellent book. Very well written, expanding that which is the force and the universe of star wars, giving us a peek behind the curtain of the past and displaying before us an excellent story of a sith and apprentice. the narrator excellently portrays Darth Sidious and his master, Plagueis. Easy to understand, but giving a sense of mystery and added suspense.

    This is my second audiobook and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Set in the years running up to the events of Episode I, it tells more of the tale of the rise of Palpatine and his eventual manipulation of the events leading to the end of the Old Republic. Filled with great characterizations and vivid descriptions, it was hard to stop listening when I had to do other things. The narration by Daniel Davis (aka Niles the Butler from the Nanny and Moriarty from Star Trek TNG) as superb. His vocal skills and theater training shine through.
