Darth Plagueis: Like all Sith Lords before him, he craves absolute power. But like no Sith Lord ever, he possesses the ultimate power—over life and death.
Darth Sidious: In secret he masters the power of the dark side, while publicly climbing to the highest government office.
One desires to rule supreme; the other dreams of living forever. Together, they will destroy the Jedi and rule the galaxy. Unless merciless Sith tradition becomes their undoing. . . .
A brief history:
I’ve read several of the Star Wars Expanded Universe books and Darth Plagueis has been recommended to me many times. I finally thought it was time to read it, especially after seeing Episode VII!
Darth Plagueis takes place before, during and after Episode I, it’s kind of heavy on the Midicholorians talk…but surprisingly it works. Though the book is titled “Darth Plagueis” it’s also the origin story of Palpatine.
Do I recommend this book?:
I do indeed recommend Darth Plagueis, if you would like more insight to the characters in the Star Wars movies (even though it’s not canon, it should be!) it’s a must read.
You can get the book from Amazon
