      Misleading, the Dark Side of the Force, is.This is a novel part of what is known nowadays as Legends in the Star Wars novel series, in other words, non canonical any featuring the events of the life of Darth Plagueis and his apprentice Darth SidiousCEITFUL TITLEHonestly, it was odd that the book was titled Darth Plagueis since while indeed the events begin with him as main character , once Palpatine eventually aka Darth Sidious comes into the story, Plagueis got less and less relevant and Palpat [...]

      A very enjoyable and entertaining Star Wars novel.Less solicitous reviewers might call this filler, and while that would be callous but somewhat accurate, author James Luceno has captured the essence of Lucas duality of the Force, between the light and the dark When this is at its best it is an exploration of the similarities and distinctions between Jedi and Sith.Darth Plagueis was Darth Sidious Emperor Senator Palpatine s Sith master An alien Muun, who might resemble a somber and elongated Hom [...]

      Perhaps my favorite scene in Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith is the one where Palpatine entices Anakin toward the dark side by recounting the story of Darth Plagueis a Sith Lord who manipulates the Force in an effort to become immortal I love the scene in part because it focuses on personal relationships as opposed to bureaucratic procedure It also emanates with the most spiritual strains of Jedi and Sith lore So when I saw a new Star Wars novel titled Darth Plagueis, I snatched it eag [...]

      sentient life is meant to evolve, not simply languish in contended stasis NOTE I received this book from the Vine Program.The time has come for the Sith to reveal themselves, to step away from the Rule of Two setup by Darth Bane many years ago Darth Plagueis emerges and, with the assistance of his apprentice, Darth Sidious, begins the final steps to the destruction of the Republic and the Jedi.I have some wonderful news After SIX MONTHS of reading this book, I have finally finished it Roll out t [...]

    5. Mogsy (MMOGC) says:

      Apparently this Star Wars novel had been highly anticipated since its announcement years ago, and I had no idea until after I finished it and decided to look it up Now that I ve read it, I guess I can see why Darth Plagueis is probably worth reading simply if for no other reason other than how canon it is, if you re a big Star Wars fan I heard that the author worked really closely with LucasFilms to get it just right And yes, I did find that it explained a lot about the events of the prequel mov [...]

    6. Mike says:

      I have the feeling that I liked Darth Plagueis by James Luceno than the average Star Wars fan wouldd than any of the reviews I read online before purchasing this book Why Deep down, I feel much like a Sith and, hey, why not a Dark Lord of the Sithmight as well dream big than a Jedi most of the time and this book is a chronicle of the rise of Palpatine a.k.a Darth Sidious as well as the story of Darth Plagueis with a bit of Darth Maul and Count Dooku and a dash of Darth Tenebrous to boot A few [...]

    7. Samuel says:

      A prequel to the prequels That s the description to this book James Luceno does a good job at creating the character of Darth Sidious that is in the movies through his life and how the whole entire movies started It s great to see how everything becomes connected between the prequel movies and the original trilogy How the whole Sith plan was furnished on two of the most powerful beings in the galaxy I m glad that George Lucas had approved of the backstory of Plagueis in this book The last time h [...]

    8. John says:

      Darth Plaguies was one of the characters in the star wars universe that had really peaked my interest ever since his all to brief mention in Episode 3, and this book gives me all the detail I want about the character leading right up to a certain point of the Star Wars saga I m not saying what part so is not to spoil anything What s interesting is that in may ways I actually found Sidious to be the far interesting character in this book, from his introduction all the way up to the conclusion Th [...]

    9. Doppelganger says:

      Upon finishing this book I have read only two Star Wars novels, but can say from my limited experience in Star Wars literature that this may be the book by which many after will be judged You definitely get the impression that James Luceno did his homework here, because his command of the universe seems seamless and nearly infinite There are so many good descriptions and accurate references inferences to events that add to the overall enjoyability of this book I wanted to read this title because [...]

    10. Iset says:

      This may be controversial to those who think that Darth Plagueis heralded a glorious bright spot in the latter day of the Extended Universe but it s not that great True, it indeed raises itself above the morass of churned out, 200 pages in hardback, simply forgettable novels that were really plaguing the EU towards the end Darth Plagueis is fresh and interesting and stands out enough that you won t forget which one it was It s a genuinely decent read It s just not a great read.After all these ye [...]

    11. Anthony says:

      I ve been reading a lot of Star Wars books over the last couple of years I ve been trying to get through most of the new canon stuff from Disney I m failing a bit at catching up because they keep publishing new books.But anywayEven though this is no longer considered canon , I decided to read it anyway because it s one of the books you hear Star Wars fans talking about the most And after reading and finishing it, I can see why It s pretty fantastic.The book is titled Darth Plagueis and while he [...]

    12. Alan says:

      James Luceno weaves a tale of the Dark Side of the Force from 67 years before the Battle of Yavin through the Battle of Naboo.To be completely candid, only fairly serious fans of Star Wars will get this everyone else won t be very successful in making sense of what s going on.I won t give away any books spoilers, but what I will say is that if you ve wondered about the origins of Senator Palpatine Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, Nute Gunray, and Jedi Master Sifo Dyas, as well as how Amid [...]

    13. Quinn Rollins says:

      Toward the middle of Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith, Chancellor Palpatine and Anakin Skywalker attend the opera Evidently opera in Star Wars involves giant soap bubbles and extended bass notes As they re sitting in Palpatine s box seats, the old man tells Anakin a tale about Darth Plagueis It s a bit of bait to nudge Anakin closer to the dark side, with Palpatine telling him that Plagueis found a way to extend life and avoid death Since this loss is what Anakin fears most, it s just t [...]

    14. Ron says:

      No true Sith cares about another A worthy addition to the Expanded Universe No, not four stars on any absolute scale of literary merit Is such a thing possible But certainly better conceived and executed than most Star Wars EU books Star Wars Darth Plagueis joins many threads from the EU into the canon of Star War orthodoxy the movies We stalk the Force like hunters, rather than surrender like prey to its enigmatic whims Don t let the title fool you, this book is mostly about Palpatine AKA Darth [...]

    15. Brad Wheeler says:

      Throughout the extremely uneven history of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, certain authors have occasionally taken it upon themselves to write novels that are, at least in part, lengthy retcons of areas of the canon that have become confused or conflicting e.g I, Jedi, or The Death Star Darth Plagueis does a fair bit of retconning, but beyond that, it s a Star Wars novel that s actually good as a novel, not just a Star Wars story.The entire novel is told through the viewpoint of the eponymous D [...]

    16. George Trello says:

      I ve read a lot of Star Wars books though, I ve apparently not added many to my shelves on here and they typically, like the movies, focus on the actions of characters rather than their motives This one is different There is very little action here in fact it reads almost like a historical account of the rise and fall of Darth Plagueis as told by his apprentice, Darth Sidious known better by those unfamiliar with the SW EU as his alter ego Emperor Palpatine It deals heavily with the one subject [...]

    17. Robert says:

      Ahh, Darth Plagueis the Wise 0.00000001%erYour book was so much interesting over the first two thirds when the author did not have to flex and contort all plausibility in service of the bat guano crazy plotting of Dear Uncle George s prequels trilogy.Plagueis himself made for a very intriguing, deep scheming villain merciless and inhumane, yes, but also intelligent and subtle I would ve been perfectly satisfied if the book had ended with the completion of his seduction of young Palpatine to the [...]

    18. Lance Shadow says:

      This is probably the hardest book review I have ever done James Luceno is a prime example of an author that for me, I can tell he is very good at what he does, and yet I still have an extremely hard time with his books The rating here was VERY hard to set, and it s likely bloated On the one hand, at least half of this book left me quite bored, yet on the other I can understand why other people loved it I will say, though, I listened to the audiobook narrated by Daniel Davis, and the audio versio [...]

    19. Jeff says:

      Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith who was so wise and so powerful that he could influence the midichloreans to create life He had such a knowledge of the Dark Side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.Star Wars Darth Plagueis is one of the best Star Wars books that I ve read Period I could stop writing now, and that s all you d need to know But since it s me, I ll go a little deeper.Darth Plagueis follows the title character and his nefarious dealings throughout th [...]

    20. Khurram says:

      Being a lifelong Star Wars fan The thing I love about the Star Wars universe is the commitment to continuity This book goes back and provides the background information to Revenge of the Sith obviously, however it uses info from Darth Maul books and comic series, a brief mention of Jungo Fett s comic series, and even season 3 of Clone Wars to be resolved in season 4.I think this book is great and well written Having said that I have two main problems with this book The first being it tells you [...]

    21. Kkeeleart says:

      The problem is I read the premise, looked at the cover, and watched the scene from Revenge of the Sith where Palpatine tells the story of Darth Plagueis and I had a different story in my head than what this turned out to be I d imagined this book following Darth Plagueis as he traveled to ancient Sith ruins and played Frankenstein on life forms and researched old dark side texts to uncover lost secrets of the force There s some of that, but what we mostly get instead is a book about the origins [...]

    22. Dr. Andrew Higgins says:

      This is a brilliant Star Wars novel which as some of the story line is mentioned by Palpatine in Star Wars III Revenge of the Sith is now considered canon but also has elements that have now thanks to Disney been shifted into the legendary category the vexed matter of what is canon No matter this is a brilliant cracking story which focuses on how Palpatine was drawn to the Dark Side of the Force by his master Darth Plagueis to become the hooded Darth Sidious and doomed Emperor Behind this is the [...]

      Fascinante e interesant simo libro, imprescindible para cualquier fan de Star Wars que quiera llegar a entender la intrincada telara a pol tica y econ mica que llev a la ca da de la Rep blica y de la Orden Jedi con ella.Los primeros hilos de esa telara a fueron tejidos por Darth Plagueis, uno de los m s poderosos Sith que han existido La historia se desarrolla durante unos 50 a os y no s lo nos cuenta la historia de Darth Plagueis, tambi n la de su disc pulo, Darth Sidious, Palpatine, al que seg [...]

    24. Mike McDevitt says:

      Don t misunderstand This is a very good Star Wars book I can t give it 4 stars because it officially crushed my personal theory of Emperor Palpatine Darth Sidious backstory I thought he was a thousand year old sorceror ghoul cloaked in the guise of a middle aged man Now he officially was a middle aged man with some limited magic powers I thought the Grand Design of the Evil Sith was a plan ten centuries in the making, culminating in the creation of The Chosen One to bring down the arrogant Jedi [...]

    25. Alexander Draganov says:

      Star Wars Darth Plagueis for me is the biggest event in the saga since the release of Episode III After years of waiting, this novel finally reveals the origins of the legendary Emperor Palpatine, as well as the legend of his master, Darth Plagueis the Wise More important, it does it well I know that many fans dislike the truth behind the mask of Darth Vader that he once was a lovesick emotional teenager I am not among them, but I can tell them relax Palpatine is as evil as a man can be, and the [...]

    26. Mphecker says:

      I decided to read this novel after multiple sources stated that Luceno s story of Darth Plagueis and the transformation of Palpatine into Darth Sidious did not portray the future Emperor in a heroic light, as the prequel movies did with Darth Vader Though I enjoyed the novel s first two sections, the final third of the novel became so overflowing with references to other Star Wars novels that I found myself losing interest Instead of reading about Darth Plagueis, the last third of the novel see [...]

    27. Daniel Kukwa says:

      This sails a bit close to the wind for me Not only does much of the plot unfold simultaneously with The Phantom Meance , it s also dipping into the same overload of politics and economics that drowned that film in mediocrity The only saving grace in this case is that James Luceno is a far better writer than George Lucasbut even Luceno can only do so much with this type of material It just gets in the way of the interesting story of between Plagueis Palpatine, and when the novel focuses on their [...]

      Story Luceno 9 10ONE SENTENCE SYNOPSIS Literally explains every single little tiny detail in between every book, comic, and short story before the Phantom Menace

    29. Samantha says:

      Who can resist the inside scoop on the mysterious Darth Plagueis whose story is used to help tip Anikan toward the dark side Well, not me I was eager to learn about this Sith who had supposedly controlled life and death though had not been able to avoid his own.I must agree with other reviewers on two points First, this novel is misleadingly titled It becomes and about Darth Sidious and less about Plagueis from the moment Palpatine steps into the picture Second, it does read differently than [...]

    30. Elliott says:

      When I happened across Star Wars Darth Plagueis by James Luceno in a Wal Mart earlier this year I very nearly exploded with joy I had heard of Mr Luceno s work before but never had the chance to read any of it, and I was not disappointed Luceno has such a firm grasp on the lore of the Star Wars universe that this story just fits perfectly with the movies Names and places things that only a true Star Wars fan would know pop up at regular intervals, and it only adds to this books greatness.A fairl [...]
