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.

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.

One of the most awesome Star Wars books I've read! This tells the story of Darth Plagueis, the Sith Lord who trained Darth Sidieus (Palpitine). This book explained so much, that I couldn't begin to talk about it without have Spoiler Alerts. I had begun reading Timothy Zahn's trilogies, "The Heir to the Empire" and I'm glad I did. There were connections in that book to this book. I had placed a hold on this book back in July of 2016 and it didn't come in until December 2016. I'm very glad I did, as I'm sure this book might be made into another Star Wars Movie! I highly recommend this book to all Star Wars fans!

Ahh, Darth Plagueis the Wise 0.00000001%er...Your book was so much more interesting over the first two thirds when the author did not have to flex and contort all plausibility in service of the bat guano crazy plotting of Dear Uncle George's prequels trilogy.

Plagueis himself made for a very intriguing, deep-scheming villain- merciless and inhumane, yes, but also intelligent and subtle. I would've been perfectly satisfied if the book had ended with the completion of his "seduction" of young Palpatine to the dark side and the ways of the Sith, but plodding on through literally decades of double lives, senatorial intrigue, and endless cameos by familiar figures spoiled the final act for me.

Still, Luceno is a heck of a writer, and listening to Daniel Davis' narration was a real treat- the man's got some golden pipes, to be sure, though he might need some help with his Huttese.

Simply one of the most fascinating and mature Star Wars stories, thus far. James Luceno does an expert job of connecting many of the dots thrown out there in the Star Wars movies, with background that gives it all sense.

This is a novel without a protagonist, but to have one in this context would be a waste, because we know from having watched Lucas's prequels, what's going to happen afterwards. What's interesting here are the origins of Darth Sidius, Darth Maul, Darth Tyrannus, the Boonta Eves pod races, the clone army on Kamino, and the Trade Federation's interest in Naboo. Daniel Davis performs a great range of voices and has some help from electronic aids, which enables him to do such voices as Jabba the Hutt.
