Much better than the first KOTOR book! Darth Malgus is villain that won't soon be forgotten! And his Jedi counter Aryn Leneer is easily one of the most relatable Jedi characters in the SW universe. Great story all around. And excellent narration as usual by Marc Thompson.
It just seems as though the Paul Kemp didn't have a good handle on what it meant to be a Sith. I can not recall how many times he mentioned in dialog about how Peace is this or that but never does he recall the first four words of the Sith code, Peace is a lie. I just wanted to hear a little more about the internal battle within Malgus about his love Elenna. Reguardless, this is still a great story and I would still recommend.
Marc Thompson is spectacular as always, of course.
The story is compelling and the characters are surprisingly human. The action sequences also leave very little to be desired.
You'll need to know the background of the era, or else you might be a little confused about the politics and the state of the galaxy.
Overall, this book was a lot of fun.
