Publisher's Summary

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. But if war crowned him the darkest of Sith heroes, peace would transform him into something far more heinous - something Malgus would never want to be, but cannot stop, any more than he can stop the rogue Jedi fast approaching.

Her name is Aryn Leneer - and the lone Knight that Malgus cut down in the fierce battle for the Jedi Temple was her Master. And now she’s going to find out what happened to him - even if it means breaking every rule in the book.

More in The Old Republic series we have. And listen to all of our Star Wars titles you can!

    "Malgus"

    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

    "Decent"

    Good listen overall but for the love of God the narrator should not do a little girl voice it is impossible not to cringe.

    "Somewhat Boring Story, Outstanding Performance"

    I had high hopes for this book, it had an interesting premise in Darth Malgus. While I don't play the game, I do read the books. Deceived started out well, Darth Malgus destroys the Jedi Temple, kills most of the Jedi and is unable to completely destroy Coruscant, having been denied this by the Sith Emperor. We also meet up with the usual smuggler with a heart of gold and a young Jedi wanting revenge on the Sith who killed her master. While there are a few twists and turns and some battles, this book dragged for me. Author Kemp spends far too much time describing feelings with flowery language. Marc Thompson does an outstanding job with characterizations and the music and sound effects are great. This book just kind of stops for Darth Malgus, but smuggler Zeerid & Jedi Aryn do get a happy ending. James Luceno remains the master for writing Sith.

    Story
    "Another great SW adventure"
    If you could sum up Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived in three words, what would they be?

    Intense, emotional, confrontation


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dichotomy of emotions that conflict within each character


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Z-Man is very relatable for me


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The conflict between light and dark is within


    Any additional comments?

    The only hitch is Marc's voice for Z-Mans daughter; but because he's not a little girl, he can't be faulted

    "Is this a series?"

    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.

    "jaw-dropping"

    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!

    "The Best."

    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.

    "Star Wars books are great audio dramas"

    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.

    Great trashy Star Wars listen. Enjoyed it. Loads of fighting and force usage. If you like SW buy it.

    Thought the narrator done very well with all the different voices that he put on, his Malgus impression was my favourite....I could feel his anger as I listened in

    A brilliant tale from the old Republic, excellently acted, with one of the best villains yet to be introduced by the Star Wars universe.

    An excellent prequel to the SWTOR game, and some method behind the madness of Darth Malgus. The production values and the sound effects make it a true joy to listen to, and the writing immerses you in Star Wars beautifully.

    "Enjoyable!"

    It's great that I can take in these Star Wars books as audio... it saves a lot of time!! Don't you read then re-read chapters when it's in print? I liked this one by Paul S Kemp. It has scope, imagination and a couple of well drawn (if unoriginal) characters. Don't take that badly...he has done well here. I suspect strongly that he had to pass a committee and deal with a lot of flak to write this and it shows. It would have been a better book still if he'd been left to write what he wanted.

    If you omitted the light sabre fights, a murderously angry Sith Lord but kept the revenge, morality and ethical wrestling. It almost felt like Star Trek of old. I don't mind the blending. This was a good story, watered down a bit (and a little predictable) but still enjoyable. I liked Fatal Alliance because those characters were a little closer to my idea of the Sith. The dedicated, devout, arrogant and damaged Dark Lord's who seek power at all costs and always exude the distinct impression that we light-siders don't understand the force. How could we?

    Here... Paul drew the picture of a damaged and nuanced Sith who fought with his feelings relating to a love interest. Yes... you heard that right... a Sith Lord who was in a love relationship!! Okay... she WAS his slave, and he had murdered a similar Twi-Lek woman just like her as a teenager... but he actually loved her and she returned his feelings as best she could.

    If that doesn't get you going; then there is the outrageous desecration of the Jedi Temple by fifty red sabre wielding Sith Warriors and a Mandalorian. I'd seen a short CGI video of it on Youtube and thrilled as I realised that this book is the counterpart of that story. Good ol' George Lucas must have been SO jealous when he saw THAT plot. I would have preferred more backstory to our Sith villain and more depth to the other characters but recognise that this is probably just my being spoiled by George RR Martin & Joe Abercrombie. It's exciting stuff, not as layered as some might like but still fun and still Star Wars.

    The force is strong in this one.
