A tale of two Sith: At long last, the story of the mysterious Sith Lord, Darth
Plagueis, and his apprentice, Darth Sidious, is revealed!
The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise: Once, not so long ago, there was a
great Sith Lord called Darth Plagueis. So powerful and wise was Darth Plagueis
that he could manipulate the dark side of the Force to save others from dying.
Eventually Darth Plagueis became so powerful that the only thing he feared was
losing his power. Then, as is the way of the Sith, he was murdered by his
apprentice, Darth Sidious.
So went the tale told by Chancellor Palpatine--Darth Sidious himself--to Anakin
Skywalker, and since that moment in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, fans have
clamored to know the true story of Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious. This
stand-alone novel is a dark and moving tale of two Sith and their quest for ultimate
power over life and death....
