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!

    "Backdrop story to a video game"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes with the caveat that is relevant backgroung for a great video game. As a Star Wars book it was mediocre. I really did enjoy the series though! It added depth to the game.


    What was most disappointing about Paul S. Kemp’s story?

    I felt myself rolling my eyes at a lot of the use of force powers in this book, it was too over the top.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson had done a lot of Star Wars work and he is just superb at reading this universe.

    "Awesome!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, any true Star Wars fan would love this book, and it does not require one to play the new online game.


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

    When Lord Scurge attacked the Jedi before the emperor, I was shocked but understood his reasoning.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Marc Thompson is awesome and he did not disappoint with this story as all the others he has done.


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

    The end was sad that Revan and Bastilla were not able to be together.


    Any additional comments?

    This book tied the characters from Star Wars the Knights of the Old Republic computer game from years back.

    Story
    "Marc Thonpson - King of Star Wars Narration"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived the most enjoyable?

    Marc Thompson is THE voice of Star Wars books! I am amazed at the number of different voices he has in his arsenal. I have listened to several of the Star Wars books on audio, Marc and the special effect sounds make the Star Wars universe come to life. I first saw Decieved as the video trailer for the Star Wars The Old Republic Game and was blown away. This fills in the back story perfectly. I highly recommend this book.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived to and why?

    If you like any of the other Star Wars books, then this is a must read.


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

    Marc brings the voice of Darth Malgus to life. You can easily picture this character from the front cover with the menacing voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You will want to listen to this all in one sitting, but this way too long for one sitting. This will give you enjoyment for several sittings.

    "Pleasantly Suprised"

    After reading the other reviews for Deceived my curiosity my peaked. I had only read the NJO books in the star wars line so I wasn't sure what to expect from TOR series.

    I am impressed. The story is a great tie in to SW:TOR PC game bringing Darth Malgus and Z-man true to life. The story was great, and the Narration was top notch. I don't think I have listened to an audiobook with such production quality.

    If you love Star Wars and are looking for a new book to listen to, pick this one up. You wont be disappointed.

    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived the most enjoyable?

    Clear explanation even for a someone that doesn't know the star wars lore all that well. Amazing narration with different voices, and story of 3 different people key in TOR.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Malgus. So different and gives an insight into his mind unlike with the game.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Amazing performance voices and all.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "Finally, a fresh infusion into the SW Universe."

    An interesting concept: Compose a full fledged novel around the events of a 3 minute video game trailer that was debuted by BioWare back in 2010. The game trailer had so many SW enthusiasts "ohh-ing" and "ahh-ing" on "what could have been the prequels" fans were begging to find out what inspired these events.

    Enter Paul Kemp's "Deceived"...which completely fleshes out the backstory and immediate events that center around that 3 minute video...and what a SUPERB job he did.

    It's been a long time for SW fans to get a taste of something completely new to satisfy their SciFi lust of a Galaxy, far, far away instead of the rehashed plotlines and somewhat ridiculous stories of the New Jedi Order.

    Marc Thompsan's voice talents are really the shining point of this audio version, especially his eerie and angry, dark portrayal of Darth Malgus....one of the best characters to be created since Fett and Thrawn.

    Sound effects and action sequences are nicely paced with Marc picking up teh tempo where he needs to to accentuate drama and adrenaline.

    But the story really shines, we see a conflicted Darth Malgus and new perspectives from the both the Sith and Jedi orders...everything from personal relationships to politics. The best dichotomy comes from Malgus and Jedi Aryn Leneer...both have their alter ego's crack through and makes you teh reader/listener identify with real emotional conflicts between what is good and evil.

    For the first time in a long time, I wanted a SW story to last longer as all teh charcters were so compelling and drew me in. Highlly recommended.

    "It is sad a tree had to die to make this book"

    I must say I was disappointed in this story, I found the main character to be weak and uninteresting. I must say as well that if I were her master and she quit the Jedi order and went fanatical like the character did it would not speak well of me as a master or her as student. At any rate please don't waste your time on this book, you will regret that you'll never get back those hours of your life.

    "Diehard Novelists...WTF!!!....Gamers OMG!!!"

    I have to rate this book a bit low due to the gaming world recreating the Lucas timeline in old republic books. As my title reads, the gamers will love the book. Kemp does a great job, good story, good villains, and heroes…Boo Yah! The fan of the book world, diligently establishing a timeline for the Star Wars universe, will be disappointed because, like reviews for the other Old Republic novel, the Lucas boys said f*** the timeline, you have an Empire, Emperor, fleets…an entire copy of the post Star Wars New Hope universe. Why does this matter? For some it won’t, for others it takes away from the great work and effort so many authors have contributed to a truly unique Sci-Fi niche. It’s like taking a well established story…say Superman…and introduce a prequel, where the father of Superman is born in East LA…and making a living as a hip hop artist…where we now learn totally human “Clark Kent” spends his early years part of the Jackson 5…but now 6.......Lucas Arts…please pull your head out.
