We Sith are an unseen opposition, Tenebrous had told his young apprentice. A phantom menace. Where the Sith once wore armor, we now wear cloaks. But the Force works through us all the more powerfully in our invisibility. For the present, the more covert we remain, the more influence we can have. Our revenge will be achieved not through subjugation but by contagion.
Del Rey's Star Wars team will continue posting mini-excerpts from upcoming novels on their Facebook page every Thursday. Darth Plagueis will be released on January 10th, 2012 from Del Rey Books.
