A tale of two Sith: At long last, the story of the mysterious Sith Lord, Darth
Plagueis, and his apprentice, Darth Sidious, is revealed!--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
From the Back Cover
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 another to live forever, sow the seeds of their destruction?--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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.

This is a well-written and entertaining novel, and one that adds a lot to the saga that is the prequel Star Wars universe. The Plagueis character is briefly mentioned in the films, and is here fleshed out in detail. He's a powerful Sith lord intent on mastering life and death. If this character interests you then I highly recommend this book. But, just to say, as this story focuses on the Sith so there's little or no Jedi action, and not much by way of space battles ... instead it's about plots developed over decades and their fruition as political plans. This might not interest all Star Wars fans.
Es irónico, podía salvar a los demás de la muerte, pero no a él mismo.
Este libro les contará la historia de Darth Plagueis, que está muy buena por cierto, sólo tengan en cuenta que es una novela escrita en inglés, y la escritura está densa y llena de figuras literarias en inglés, a mí me está costando trabajo leerla de manera fluída porque está llena de adornos en inglés.
En sí la historia y la edición están muy bien, sólo es eso de que el inglés que utiliza está complicado.
A great read, you will love it!
It’s great to see previously known characters expanded and explored and more of an investigation into the politics that wrought such a heavy toll on the Republic. Reminds one of present day petty squabbles!
I thoroughly recommend this book for Star Wars fans who want to delve deeper in the 'gaps before/after' films.
I’m now in the mood to re-read the Phantom Menace now!
