Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

At long last, the Star Wars story of the mysterious Sith Lord Darth Plagueis and his apprentice, Darth Sidious, is revealed!

Kacey, June 16, 2014 (view all comments by Kacey)
This book is called Darth Plagueis, but it should really be called Darth Sidious. The book begins with the rise of Darth Plagueis, who I found to be so intriguing and different from Darth Bane. However, soon after we meet a young man on Naboo, Palpatine, and the story's focus abruptly changes. While the backstory of Darth Sidious is interesting, I was bummed out there wasn't more about Darth Plagueis. Story is still entertaining and weaves canon history and movie events seamlessly.
