Sith Warrior Darth Malgus is frustrated with the political machinations of Darth Angral and Darth Baras. Whereas he believes in getting to the point as he did when he crashed the Jedi Temple on Coruscant with an explosion heard around the galaxy; his so-called allies prefer working behind the scenes maneuvers. Malgus has other issues with his peers due to his relationship with his Twi'lek slave Eleena. The Sith only accept purity of the blood, which means only with Sith. Jedi Aryn Leneer heads to Coruscant on a mission of vengeance against those in the Republic who destroyed the Temple and killed her Master. Also heading to the capital city is former Havok Squad Trooper turned Smuggler Zeerid Korr to provide his beloved daughter a safer life. As Aryn targets Malgus, Korr eludes the Hutt Cartel, but soon they will meet up in an encounter to rival the destruction of the Temple. As the three prime principals collide in an explosive way, fans of the extended saga will realize how different Deceived is from Sean Williams' Fatal Alliance; the previous Old Republic thriller is vast in distance and numerous planets while this entry is limited to three orbs. The same goes for characterizations as the focus in Deceived is on the lead trio as opposed to a De Mille cast. Thus fans who relish action over characterizations and culture will prefer Fatal Alliance; while those who prefer key cast and culture to supersede the action will choose Deceived. Still both are fun to read as Paul S. Kemp concentrates on events that will not make the history books in the Skywalker future, but the audience will enjoy the clash when his fully developed threesome converge. Harriet Klausner

Great Star Wars book. Action packed and doesn't get bogged down in a lot of myth and prophecy. A little dissapointingly short, but sets up the mind of Malgus very well.

Deceived was one of the better SW novels I have read. Darth Malgus is an excellent character – one of the most interesting Sith Lords written into Legends - and his relationship with Eleena is complex and brings some of the most memorable scenes from this novel. The end of the novel is a series of endings and new beginnings. I haven’t played the video game or seen the trailers for the game, but this novel makes we want to do so. The Sith carry this novel, as the Jedi – Aryn Lenner – and her ex-military partner - Zeerid Korr – are good, but not great characters. Recommended if you’d like to get into the head of a Sith Lord and learn what makes them tick.

Dramatic and Grounded (a spoiler-free review) Within the setting of the galaxy-spanning conflict engineered for BioWare’s massive online multiplayer game, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived is a well-told and personal struggle for survival and identity. It fleshes out the characters and events surrounding the shocking video game trailer of the same name, where the Sith Empire ransacks the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. It succeeds in keeping the story grounded through holding to a limited cast of characters, all of whom are unique. The story’s Jedi is far from what one might expect. The primary Sith pictured on the cover, Darth Malgus, stands apart from the hoard of scowling villains wielding red sabers who tend to occupy and strive to conquer the galaxy. And right in the midst of the clash between dark and light is a solder/smuggler with his own complexities. Deceived, at its best, is a study in the grey area in between right and wrong. The novel stands alone without much knowledge of the Old Republic’s particular setting. A reader uninterested in playing the video game can enjoy this one. There’s little doubt that this book would serve as a good primer and companion piece to the online gaming experience, but as a story it is good nevertheless. It’s good, but far from perfect. In particular, Kemp’s writing never stands out as particularly impressive. His use of language tells the story and gets the job done. Deceived was worth the money. It’s rare for a single novel to develop its core characters as quickly as this. It’s far from the top of the list of must-read Star Wars books, but it does deserve a place on at least a similar list of books worth the reading experience.

Star Wars The Old Republic: Deceived is one of the few Star Wars novels that jumps right into the action and that captures the readers attention straight from page one. I was immediately mesmerized by the feel of the book. It's full of great new characters, most of which are recognizable from the Old Republic E3 game trailers. There are excellent battles and action sequences but there's also some great quieter moments that give the story a really great feel. I would highly recommend this book to any Star Wars fan.
