I know it was only released yesterday, but has anyone gotten a chance to have a read of it? Could you guys voice your opinions on the book? I wouldn't mind some feedback before buying it.

I read 2 preview chapters. Seemed interesting, purely from the perspective of learning more about Palpatines back story, which includes plagueis. I plan on picking it up today and burning through it.

I'm curious as well.

I am so tempted to just skip the book and read the wookieepedia page because I didn't like Luceno's past work. But this book really looks promisiing.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

From what I understand, the book doesn't really have much to do with Darth Plagueis, but rather it's 95% Darth Sidious. For this reason, I'm waiting on it until I finish my current series, but from early reviews it's supposed to be a good read.

From what I've read of it, it's just the opposite. Sidious was in the prologue and that's it. I'm only about 4 chapters in, but given the size of the Revan book, I'm assuming this one is fairly short as well. I don't know how long it is,because it's on my kindle and every recent star wars book on there seems to be half adds anymore.

it's about 50/50, but it's the looking into sidous that makes one understand Plagueis, because you have to understand the being that will ultimately kill his master from his perspective of how things unfolded.

THe book is an amazing read, Plagueis is the kinda sith lord that is most dangerous, a planner, a manipulator and a thinker, he defeated an entire order of Jedi by using their own beliefs and ensuring that the republic was going away from them.

ALso the book has incredible insight into both the Force of the physical and ethereal and how they each compliment eachother yet also restrict each other.
