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.

    "Enjoyable story!"

    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.

    "Wonderful story."

    It is story has it's own flavor. Apart from the other books I've read, I felt a deeper dive into the complexity of emotion in this one. It will be read many times.

    "Good story but ..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.

    "Excellent action, good story"

    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.

    "Prequel"

    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.
