Darth Plagueis: Star Wars

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: James Luceno

Narrated By: Daniel Davis

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: January 2012

Duration: 14 hours 46 minutes


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 book is by far one of my favorite Star Wars books. Star Wars episode one was not that great in my opinion, however this book kind of gives you and idea of the behind the scenes machinations.

    This would make for a better movie than rebel one. The story and narrator are impeccable. I've listened to it twice and I'm on my third now. This is a must read for Star wars fans. Darth Plagueis is a evil genius Mastermind that gives rise to sidious without him figuring it out. Together, they set forth and implement one of the best stories ever told. There could not have been a better narrator. I highly recommend it.

    This book was the first audiobook I had ever listened to' I've gone on to listen to six more star wars books. this book is still overall the best one I feel. however the Darth Bane trilogy is ridiculously good and as it's a trilogy it's a good one to get into the story has a way of getting you hooked in. they talk about Darth Bane in the Darth Plagueis book quiet alot so it's a good one to follow it up with and learn how the rule of two was created and plus Darth Bane was a badass. if you liked this book the you will like Darth Bane.

    This book was excellent. The story was very interesting and very well told and it gave me insight into the mind of the Sith. Something I did not know before listening to the story.
