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!

    "Knights of the Old Republic Deceived"

    Many have seen the trailer depicting Sith warriors converging upon the Jedi Temple on Coruscant killing and ultimately destroying the Jedi Order and the Republic in one devastating swift surprise attack. This book which opens up the world that the Knights of the Old Republic MMO will be focused on takes you there with this audible book brought to you by Audible.com. The voice talent of Paul Kemp kept me thoroughly enthralled throughout. The sound effects were excellent and in keeping with the Star Wars tradition of sounds you would expect to hear from a Star Wars franchise. The surprises in this chapter of a galaxy far far away will keep you on edge and entwined for hours. This book is a must have for fans of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

    "Good read"

    Good book. If you like the old republic or the old video games you'll like this book. Not the first SW book I would recommend but if you are a fan I highly suggest it.

    "A great edition to SWTOR lore"

    Great story, great performance and great sound like usual. If you are interested in reading more about TOR, about Darth Malgus and the fall of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, then you will love this book!

    "engaging and gripping"

    awesome dual story that gives you many viewpoints on the strife of the republic and empire. The dark side and light side blend with both protagonists we also get a great side character to anchor to. excellent

    "Came for the trailer. Stayed for the characters."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I have a few friends that love the game Star Wars The Old Republic and others that are thinking about beginning but may need a little push before making up their minds. This book would satisfy both sides, I am sure, especially if they watched the Deceived Cinematic trailer.


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

    Spoiler alert!




    Last Warning!



    When the badass Jedi Knight Arryn using the Force to survive a 50 kilometer drop after her ship exploded. By the stars, that was awesome! And lol, Zeerid’s oath to become a farmer on Dantooine if he survived the trip made me crack up.


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

    Plenty of times when it comes to other Star Wars audiobooks. This one was really good. I especially enjoyed his voice acting for Darth Malgus. I can't wait for Marc Thompson's performance for the upcoming Thrawn novel next April.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Malgus inner thoughts after he learn the Treaty of Coruscant may very well begin actual peace and about the rival Sith Lords wanting to domesticate the warrior within him struck as a very clever and funny choices of words.

    I was quite sad when Malgus's relationship with his Twi'lek lover ended. Not that I wasn't seeing coming but it was still an emotional scene.


    Any additional comments?

    The Old Republic is an untaped oil well of literary material for Disney at this point. They should hire Paul S. Kemp to write more awesome stories in that era.

    "Marc makes right."

    A decent and a bit different star wars novel. Marc Thompson is as always the best narrator among the star wars narrators.

    "Rollercoaster ride from start to finish (SPOILERS)"

    As the story starts, Z-Man (an ex-special forces pilot) has turned to running spice (space drugs) to help pay for his daughter's new hover chair. As he comes out of hyperspace to collect the drugs, he learns that Couresant, his destination and home of the Jedi, has been placed under occupation by the Sith.

    He meets up with an old friend, a young Jedi, who has detected from the Order and is looking for revenge against the Sith who killed her master during the initial attack on the Couresant Jedi temple. Together, they make their way to Couresant.

    After being shot down by a Sith cruiser, the Spice is lost, but they manage to survive the fall. They make their way to the temple, find that the Sith who killed the Jedi's master is still around and the story comes together in two close-quarters fights.

    Overall, an amazing story with great origins. A definite must-own for any Star Wars fan.

    "Interesting backstory"

    Very much one for Star Wars fans so I wouldn't recommend it if you aren't a fan. Assuming you are a fan, the novel develops its characters well and listening you do start to get engaged with what might happen to them which is an achievement in a book so full of scifi escapism!

    The writing won't win prizes but is good enough not to distract from the story.



    Like the previous one, Revan, it is a highly produced audio-book with sound effects. I don't like or dislike this especially, but it is a distinct style worth knowing about before you buy!

    "Cheese Sandwich : )"

    Everything is relative. I like the occasional cheese sandwich, and that's what this book gives you. The author and narration (and sound effects) are excellent. I expected the standard SW fare of crazy action and emotional battles and got it.

    That said, there are several places where character motivation (or is that the SW universe) feels so corny that I found myself saying 'come on - surely you could have done better'.

    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.
