Not bad but let down that Malgus wasn't the focus. I'd like more history on the Sith and Jedi maybe some internal conflicts. Story didn't seem to keep my attention
The second book in this "series" was worse than the first, which I hated. From what I can tell, they are not at all related and the second appears to have taken place long before the first but does nothing to add to the experience of the first installment. If you are looking for books that will give you some backstory and immersion into the world of KOTOR, skip the first too. I am still holding out hope for "Revan" though.
I have been wanting to read this book since encountering Darth Malgus in the swtor game. there were times of literal jaw dropping, stop you in your tracks events. so many star wars goodies that I recognized from the game, brought to life. AMAZING BOOK!
Ive completed over 50 Star Wars novels, and this book by far has been the best! Love the plot, characters, setting, and progression. Well written dialogue and decision making.
Highly highly recommended as my #1 Star Wars read.
There have been Star Wars stories that moved me more than this one, but it was still fun. The background sounds in these productions add a lot of atmosphere, that simply makes them better than most other Audiobooks.
found the story to be pretty good and the look into malgus was an awesome insight in the making of a sith Lord...as always Marc Thompson delivers a great performance with one exception....the voice he gave for the little girl made my skin crawl off of my body it literally was one of the creepiest voices I've ever heard. if I heard that voice in a dark alley or in the woods I would immediately deficate myself. will be weeks to stop these nightmares
Characters are completely different from Revan, apparently based on the game as well, so at first they were unfamiliar to me, but once I got to know them it was a good read, the characters dynamic and flushed out well. My main concern is that nothing really big happens in the novel, canonically at least, so it seems kind of like a follow-up to characters I hadn't heard of to begin with.
Not a great story. The Sith arc is pretty good but the jedi in the story is annoying and whiny and accomplishes little of any real consequence. I struggled to finish this one. The lack of impact or relevance to the rest of the Star Wars universe was dissapointing.
