  • Fantastic

    This book made me reward episode 1. Something I never thought I'd do . It's only really about plagueis for half the book , the rest is about sidious . This was my second read through.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Insight is what made this novel compelling

    The tale of Plagueis is also really the tale of Palpatine and his growth from intellectual idealist to Dark Lord of the Sith. Offering back story that furthers and sets up the plot to the events of episode 1. A bit more political than your typical SW novel, but none the less riveting

  • Since the scene in 'Revenge of the Sith' where Palaptine spoke to Anakin about his Master, this has been a book I was very curious to pick up, to learn more about the Sith Lord who would train The Emperor. It did a very good job of bringing in the characters who were both referenced and met in the movie's prequel trilogy. Count Dooku, Master Sifo-Dyas and of course, Darth Sidious' own Master, Darth Plagueis. The author did a good job of balancing both the political side and the Sith side of the story without losing momentum.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fascinating

    Ties together the whole prequel era into one Grand Design. Witness Palpatine and his shadowy master take the calculated steps to secure connection control of the Republic, instigate the Clone Wars, and have their revenge on the Jedi Order. Only the promise of future redemption in the films prevents this dark tale from being a depressing vision of the triumph of evil. Best Star Wars book I've read in a WHILE!
