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.

My favorite old Republic book.

The voice acting is superb, especially the voice actor of Darth Malgus. Probably my 3rd favorite book of the star wars series after Darth Plagues and Darth Bane (all 3) book. Highly recommended!

I loved the performance and special effects. I though It would follow the storyline of the first book but it's a completely new story.

Shallow, whiny stereotype protagonist

This story has two protagonists. One is a hardened smuggler that is not a bad character. The other is a Jedi that is a shallow stereotype of a woman. She's young, attractive, self-centered, and she lets her emotions send her into bad decisions over and over again. She's also almost completely undeveloped as a character and I couldn't care less about her except to be repeatedly annoyed by her utterly unreasonable actions.

I plodded through the book, almost giving it up again and again. And by the time I finished it, I was completely unsatisfied with the story as a whole. I even felt pandered to by the cheesy ending.

I am usually throughly entertained by audiobooks, even being the guy who likes the ones others don't. But this book cut right through that optimistic barrier and brought me low. I've only listened to a few books in the Star Wars universe, and this one has me thinking of not returning for another.

A quick word about Marc Thompson: he is very, very good in this book. He does well in voicing the different characters, interacting with the audio effects and music, and keeping a timber and good pace. He salvaged a book that would otherwise be a ruin.

Terrible

Marc Thompson, who always does an amazing job was really the only saving grace of this book. the entire story read like a sith love letter with very little character development giving the listener no real care for any of the players in the story.

Each character felt like little more than a fan story written of the traditional Star wars characters with names & genders changed.

Having read allot of shat are now "legends" stories, this should be skipped as a very disappointing waste of time.

This book is 🔥🔥🔥

Very dark and grabbing book that keeps you held on. As always Marc Thompson's performance is top notch. Also with saying too much, this is the first Star Wars book I've read that welled tears in my eyes by the end. A definite read/ listen.
