Great starting point into the star wars universe
Reviewed in Australia on 1 November 2020
A great starting point for anyone who's like me and has watched the star wars films but has never gotten into the other mediums that go into the star wars universe.
The book covers events leading up to and partway into the events of the prequel trilogy in the span of about 60-70 years. The book is a great starting point as it goes into how Palpatine became a sith, though the story mainly focuses on the life of Darth Plagueis, his master and mentor into the dark side.
The book features many characters and locations that you may be familiar with from the films that are mentioned in passing or relevant to events as they happen throughout the book.
My main complaint about this book is how easily the spine can crack and be on the verge of pages dropping out. So handle it very careful and not open it beyond 90 degrees if you don't want to ruin the overall physical quality of the book.
