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.

Another Great Old Republic novel

Yes, as the tittle of my review says, this novel was very well writen, placing great emphasis on the dualities of the Force. Darth Malgus gives a great explanation as to what being a Sith is, from a certain point of view. Paul Kemp makes the reader actually care about the characters involved and shows how useless dealing in absolutes is (light, dark, good, evil etc.) This is enjoyed even more when the reader has watched the trailers for the upcoming MMO. The scenes in the novel are actually depicted in all its action! Thumbs up!

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.

Enjoyable Story

Well read, great work by the narrator. The syory is a enjoyable one in the Star Wars universe. Old Republic stories are very appealing. Recommended to all those who love Star Wars stories beyond the films.

Absolutely fantastic immersive story telling

The narrator did an excellent job! each character was distinct and felt real.
The only thing I felt the story needed more of was expansion at the end.
