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?

    Absolute best star wars book. I learned more about Darth Plaguies and Palpatune. It's very informative and has really good narrating.

  • gavin mehieloff

    Great story made me want to see phantom menace again. I wish darth plagueis was in the movies what a great character. Perfect narration for this as well.

  • Jamie Avi-Dan

  • anthony conneely

  • Jordan Clifford

    Great book!! Loved every bit of it, so much detail given about characters you don't get much background information about! Highly suggest! 5 stars!!

  • Hannes Schelm

    After the Thrawn Novel, the best book so far! I hope that Plagueis will return as Snoke!!!!

  • Justin Wicks

    Everything was excellent: narration; story; chronicles. Very well done. Looking forward to more narration by the same guy.

    (Translate it from Swedish) Ett MÅSTE för ALLA RIKTIGA Strar Wars Nördar! Helt sinnes sjukt bra ! Den binder ihop så mycket, och fyller ut dem luckorna man trodde redan visste. Dem drar mycket historiska event, bl.a från Old Republic Eran, och mycket djupt ingående i små detaljer som riktiga Star Wars fantaster skulle förstå ! Boken flyter på bra redan i början, och miljöbeskrivningarna är helt klockrena. Jag som Dyxlektiker låg i 18 h i sträck med den här. Var bara tvungen att läsa och lyssna om den när jag var klar ! För att ni ska uppskatta boken ännu mer så rekommenderar jag: Att ni Känner till Darth Bane ( läst bökerna / Serien eller bara har ett hum över vem det är ) Har Spelat KOTOR (1-2) och SWTOR Tittat på Vs:serier med: Jeensera1, EvanNova och GreyJedi91 Ps. När ni har läst klart den så MÅSTE NI FORSTKETTA på den korta novelen: The Tenebrous Way Som bara gör både boken och Star Wars Universumet, i allmänhet, ÄNNU MER Komplex!

    I've listened to this book twice since getting it. I have listened to several Star Wars audiobooks and this is definitely my favorite. I know that it isn't considered canon anymore, but I really hope that they include it.
