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!

    I love the storyline. It keeps everything connected. Turns out Grand Master Shateel should have finished the job.

    "Good stuff"

    Great Star Wars story, mildly generic and predictable though. Performance was good for one person, but the little girl voice the guy does is almost disturbing.

    Story
    "Are we sure this isn't Darth Vader?"

    Paul S. Kemp writes a Star Wars novel that is easily comparable to the works of James Luceno, Drew Karpyshyn, and Timothy Zahn. This is the caliber we expect as Star Wars readers. Well done.

    Performance by Marc Thompson is nothing short of greatness, Marc has yet to disappoint me or break immersion at all.

    Just how we so quickly grew to admire Darth Vader, the same happens here with Darth Malgus. The whole time this novel feels like we are getting a new take on Empire Strikes Back, absolutely a novel I would recommend to Star Wars readers.
    (For a non-Star Wars fan it may not settle over the same)

    "Good, riveting at the middle."

    Excellent book but hard to pick at the beginning, it seems dull and even confusing, only recommended to those who have played the game or have deep understanding of the kotor universe

    "more in depth about Malgus"

    I loved the book overall and highly recommend it to any SW fan. Although I was hoping for a more in depth look at malgus and what happened to him, how he died and what not.

    "Not sure how this is the second story in a Series!?"

    The book is a bit confusing, Due to it pre-dating fatal alliance. The story is a bit weak without a full direction or a very broad storyline. What I have to say it is written very narrow, and if you were to listen to this book I would listen to it before fatal alliance.

    "Great fun"

    Great fun. Can't wait to listen to the next one. Corny in places, no doubt, but it fulfilled its expectation to be fun. I enjoyed it so much I listened twice!

    The one thing I didn't like was the rather graphic attention to detail during fight scenes. I felt it was superfluous to requirements and actually detracted from the plot rather than adding to it, as the description of the sound someone's arm makes as it is twisted and breaks takes rather a lot of print (and leaves me wincing). I wanted to get on with the story.

    "Fantastic for a first timer!"

    This is the first time i've ever listened to an Audio book and also the first ever Star Wars book. It's fantastic and clear to follow, the story is gripping and the characters make you feel for them. The reader's voice is brilliant and very easy to listen to.

    Fantastic.

    "Fantastic easy listening but shallow"

    I really enjoyed this book, there is very little story (one might even say shallow) but the way it was written and narrated more than made up for the lack of grey matter needed to listen.
    It felt like one huge lightsaber battle through the book (and lets be honest who doesn't watch Star Wars for those!)
    The narration was probably the best I've ever had the pleasure to listen to!
    The narrator handled the different voices brilliantly and was almost breathless with excitement, he really got into his role and I think his enthusiasm was contagious.
    This is one of the few books I'd easily listen to more than once and can heartily recommend it if you want an action packed story with first rate exciting narration as well as the obligatory and oh so famous Star Wars universe sound effects that really bang the action home and make you feel really immersed.
    Just don't expect a deep storyline, the book is an excuse for action and more action.
    Luckily the action is great!
    Just to add, I can't get enough of Marc Thompson's narration (after listening to Reven as well) and intend to work my way through all the books he's narrated.

    A well written story. An excellent narrator does the voices so well and the sound effects make this a winning combination for a Star Wars story.

    "Warning spoilers"

    It was a fun book. Very predictable though like at the end of chapter 14 when the ship comes it was easy to tell who it was I also really liked the detailed battles I know some people don't like it though. It was also a simple plot not much special though it's nice to see what happens exactly after the deceived trail. Personally I liked Marc Thompson's narration and the sound effects were good. So now for the super simply overall rating

    It was 4 stars and three live long and prospers - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🖖🖖🖖

    "A fantastic star wars adventure"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived the most enjoyable?

    Marc Thompson is an excellent reader and performer. He does many of the star wars novels here on audible all of which are great in their own ways. The story in deceived will ,metaphorically anyway, have you on the edge of your seat as fantastically placed twists and turns happen to each character throughout.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really liked all of the detail that was put into each of the main characters which makes you feel so much more immersed in the story. By the end you feel like you have know these characters for years.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I feel like every scene was brilliant but the last couple of hours really make this book worth while.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An epic journey for any star wars fan...

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