Holy Sith! With the release of Darth Plagueis by James Luceno just four days away, the Internet is on fire today with free previews of the book. Suvudu posted a few chapters, Del Rey's Star Wars Books Facebook page posted a final mini-excerpt, and now Entertainment Weekly has a riveting two-page excerpt for your enjoyment as well. As EW's Christian Blauvelt explains:
Darth Plagueis is more than just an expansion of Star Wars lore only hinted at in the movies. It?s also the never-before-revealed history of Palpatine?s early years: how he came to be a Sith, how he entered politics, and how he first came to train a fearsome Zabrak Nightbrother of Dathomir who?d one day be known as Darth Maul. In this exclusive excerpt from the novel, Darth Plagueis and his disciple, Palpatine (a.k.a. Darth Sidious), discuss Maul?s Sithly potential.
