Star Wars: Darth Plagueis is a novel that is part of the Star Wars expanded universe. It was written by James Luceno, and released on January 10, 2012. The novel covers the later life and machinations of Sith lord Darth Plagueis, over a roughly fifty-year period pre-dating Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The novel details Plagueis' overthrow of his own master Darth Tenebrous, his work as head of a powerful banking consortium on the Muun homeworld, his discovery, recruitment and training of the teenaged Palpatine of Naboo, and the efforts of Plagueis to undermine the Galactic Republic and ensure the dominance of the Dark Side of the Force. The novel brings in scores of characters and locations already familiar in the Star Wars mythos, as well as introducing many others for the first time. Events depicted on-screen in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, are re-told in Star Wars: Darth Plagueis, often from a perspective not shown in the 1999 motion picture. Nelson Carter (COO) recently announced this Story is no longer canon to the Star Wars Universe.
The novel was hailed by Newsday on a cover blurb as, "The best Star Wars publication to date."
