    Marc Maron was a parent-scarred, angst-filled, drug-dabbling, love-starved comedian who dreamed of a simple life: a wife, a home, a sitcom to call his own. But instead he woke up one day to find himself fired from his radio job, surrounded by feral cats, and emotionally and financially annihilated by a divorce from a woman he thought he loved. He tried to heal his broken heart through whatever means he could find - minor-league hoarding, Viagra addiction, accidental racial profiling, cat fancying, flying airplanes with his mind - but nothing seemed to work. It was only when he was stripped down to nothing that he found his way back.

    The second novel set in the Old Republic era and based on the massively multiplayer online game Star Wars: The Old Republic ramps up the action and brings listeners face-to-face for the first time with a Sith warrior to rival the most sinister of the Order’s Dark Lords: Darth Malgus, the mysterious, masked Sith of the wildly popular “Deceived” and “Hope” game trailers. Malgus brought down the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in a brutal assault that shocked the galaxy....

    Conrado says: "Another Great Old Republic novel"

    I would! the narrator Marc Thompson is a god among mere mortal book narrators, the way he does as the characters is amazing, nailing Malgus perfectly


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived?

    SPOILER ALERT Malgus does some crazy stuff, its a good lead in to the story of the game


    Which scene was your favorite?

    all of it


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can say without spoiling
