It seems to me that tie-in books could be that much more successful if they tried to appeal beyond their core demographic. With that said, if you like Sith, revenge-bent Jedi, and a character-driven story, Deceived is pretty good.

Synopsis

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 readers 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.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Overall I greatly enjoyed Deceived and it definitely whets my appetite for more novels from Paul Kemp. Not only does it serve its purpose as a good novel but it also serves the purpose of selling a game.

I like Paul S. Kemp. But no matter how I twisted and squirmed in an attempt to enjoy this novel, I found Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived hopelessly predictable in plot, monotone in setting, and obvious in structure.
