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.

This book has everything. sith politics (abit), awesome fights, the jedi struggle with the dark side and even two love storys. and i feel like they had just the right amount of everything.
One of the better Star Wars books in my opinion.
Exciting, Intelligent and Satisfying
Darth Malgus is by far the most interesting
Marc Thompson brings a cadence to the voice of Darth Malgus that a reader may not have done on their own. The voice modulation is also a nice touch.
Deceived is a quality listen...enjoy!
This content was overall enjoyable. It's not the best I've read in this genre, nor the worst.
The voice performance is what I'd really like to comment on. I really like Marc Thompson. I enjoy his other work. This review is about knowing your limits.
Having to listen to Marc perform an 8-year old girl was really difficult. Really. Just really bad.
I know there's probably not much budget for this work. But please, maybe just have a second person do voice performance for female children. Please. Don't make me listen to that again.
