Today is the day everyone has been waiting for. Years in the making, James Luceno’s Darth Plagueis hits stores today in hardback, digital, and audiobook formats.

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 the other to live forever, sow the seeds of their destruction?

Star Wars Books has posted the final excerpt from James Luceno’s Darth Plagueis which comes out Tuesday.

“That is most welcome news,” Sidious said into the device, as if in a daze. “I didn’t expect this . . . A good choice, I think . . . I am certain of it, Supreme Chancellor . . . Yes, I’m sure she meant every word of it.”

“What now?” Plagueis asked the moment Palpatine broke the connection.

Sidious shook his head in disbelief. “Valorum somehow managed to persuade the Council to send two Jedi to Naboo.”

You can check out all the previous excerpts here: mini-excerpt #1, #2, #3, #4, and chapter 1, #5, #6, #7, bonus excerpt, and the audio excerpt.

Star Wars Books has posted a new excerpt from James Luceno’s Darth Plagueis. Just 12 more days till release!

No Sith have ever been in the position in which we now find ourselves, Darth Sidious: in step with the reemergence of the dark side, fortified by the signs and omens, certain that revenge and victory are near at hand…Yoda and the rest of the Council members will double their meditation sessions in an effort to peer into the future, only to discover it clouded and unknowable. Only to discover that complacency has opened the door to catastrophe.

You can check out all the previous excerpts here: mini-excerpt #1, #2, #3, #4, and chapter 1, #5, #6, bonus excerpt, and the audio excerpt.

Star Wars Books has posted Darth Plagueis mini-excerpt #6:

“Where the Neimoidians should be grateful to Senator Palpatine for proposing the summit, they are instead furious. Everything is in place for launching the blockade.”

“Almost everything,” Plagueis said. “First, there is the matter of our revenge.”

“Shall I task Maul to pay Veruna a visit?”

Plagueis shook his head. “I intend to see to him personally. Is the Zabrak— Maul, as you call him— capable of dealing with Alexi Garyn and his Vigos?”

“He will not fail us.”

You can check out all the previous excerpts here: mini-excerpt #1, #2, #3, #4, and chapter 1, #5, and the audio excerpt.

Star Wars Books has posted Darth Plagueis mini-excerpt #5:

“What is known about this Anakin?”

“Very little, except for the fact that he was born into slavery nine years ago and was, until recently, along with his mother, the property of Gardulla the Hutt, then a Toydarian junk dealer.” Dooku smirked. “Also that he won the Boonta Eve Classic Podrace.”

Palpatine had stopped listening. Nine years old . . . Conceived by the Force . . . Is it possible . . .

You can check out all the previous excerpts here: mini-excerpt #1, #2, #3, #4, and chapter 1, and an audio excerpt.

Darth Plagueis Mini-excerpt #3

Star Wars Books has posted a third mini-excerpt for Darth Plagueis.

“What?” Plagueis asked himself. “What topic has summoned such an earnest look to Qui-Gon’s face, and such confused urgency in the boy?” Lifting his face from the macrobinoculars, he stretched out with the Force and fell victim to an assault of perplexing images: ferocious battles in deep space; the clashing of lightsabers; partitions of radiant light; a black-helmeted cyborg rising from a table . . .
