Asked 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 heinous something Malgus would never w As this is only the fourth event on the ‘Legends’ timeline and the second to feature characters from the computer games I’m still finding myself in unfamiliar groundThis fast paced adventure gave me another snapshot of The Old Republic having jumped just over 300 years since the events of RevanBoth Aryan and Darth Malgus were both really interesting characters throw in lightsabers and the usual Jedi and Sith conflicts I felt I was treading familiar groundIt was an enjoyable entry in the series

Deceived Star Wars The Old Republic #2The 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 m Be true to yourselfIn light of the uote I've chosen for this review I will be brutally honest though that is really no different than I am any other time I write a review This book was LIGHT YEARS better than Fatal Alliance Despite that I had some issues But first a summary of sortsNOTE I received this ARC through the Vine programZeerid Z Man is an ex soldier now gun runner He does this to supply his paralyzed daughter actually she doesn't even HAVE legs so she really isn't paralyzed is she? with the basics in the hopes that someday he can get her real legs He has been given a dangerous assignment evade the Sith blockade of Coruscant to deliver spice On the way he meets renegade of course Jedi Aryn Leneer who is out forwait for itREVENGEOkay so let me say after reading Fatal Alliance I wanted to leave Star Wars books far behind But I am an Admin of a Star Wars book club and the next book on the list was Deceived so I had to read it well I am sure I coulda found a way to cop out but that would be a little Sithy of me don't you think? Fortunately it wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting Unfortunately it could have been MUCH betterMy favorite character was oddly enough Zeerid I was shocked when I figured this out because Zeerid and his story has been told SO many times I'll bet an 8 year old would know the archetype I don't know how Kemp did it but he made me involved in Zeerid's story interested in his outcome and cheering for him to make it out in the end Even if he was an ex soldier with a crippled 7 year old girl who lives in a crappy apartment with her impoverished overworked aunt By the way the ex soldier bit in this story works MUCH better than the ex soldier in Fatal Alliance instead of making his departure from the military another The Man did me wrong boo hoo he leaves because of his gasp family I found myself reading his sections uickly desperate to find out how he survives As I read I was also reminded of Lorn Pavan in Michael Reaves' Star Wars Darth Maul Shadow Hunter both are competent men who don't have to resort to using the Force or wearing a bucket on their heads to be 100% awesomeI wish I could say I was as fond of the other characters as I was of Zeerid but I wasn't Malgus had some interesting conflicts and on one hand I liked his relationship with Eleea but let's face it Malgus is your typical Sith baddie He spouts rhetoric about Anger and getting rid of peace like all good Sith Eleena is a plot device or what I've seen called in other places as a Plot Moppet She is wise wonderful caring blind to Malgus' abuse spouts all the right stuff at all the right timesand serves only to create conflict and results in others There is no nuance in her character whatsoever She has no desires no ambitions no likes no dislikes All she is is a sexy female Twi'Lek because what female Twi'Lek isn't? whose sole purpose is to make a reaction in the other characters or to be a weakness to other characters This resulted in my not caring what happened to her and hoping desperately that she would get a point of view scene that would show her completely different from what the Malgus' sections showed her to be they didn'tRepresenting the Jedi is the stereotypical hero turned Dark Sider at least for 28 seconds before realizing that d'oh maybe revenge ISN'T what your master would have wanted Aryn Leneer While she is WAY interesting than what's his face from you guessed it Fatal Alliance her character has been done to death Kemp really does try to bring some conflict to her tries to make it different I liked the subtle romance between Aryn and Zeerid I liked how Aryn was a woman and not just a cliched female and yet had a decent story arc and I admire his attempt but it didn't work for me Aryn is just another Jedi who when a loved one dies immediately goes out for REVENGE The results are lackluster as alwaysRounding out the cast is Vrath Xizor a mercenary on the tail of Zeerid He certainly isn't bad I really liked the fight scene between him and Zeerid in which both are eually skilled but other than that nothing about him stands out hugely I was surprised at his outcome howeverThe writing was so much better than that other book I keep mentioning in this review I think I literally sighed with relief after reading the first page It was descriptive beautiful without being too frilly In places sometimes Kemp's writing tended to slow the action to a halt but other times it gave a great idea of the destruction of the temple or an amazing fight scene in the cargo hold of a drop shipI did receive this as an ARC through the Vine program; I am desperately hoping that this goes through a final stage of editing because gorrammit there are a ton of errors in here From wrong word choices to incorrect grammar to using the wrong character there were so many errors I almost wanted to grab a red pen and give Kemp and his editor a handAnd now for my favorite section and yoursthe newly debuted Nerd Nitpicks1 Zeerid spends 87 THOUSAND CREDITS on a hover chair This is MORE THAN A VEHICLE at least on earth It is than what Han Solo demands as payment for transport to Alderaan 10000 and it's than what Obi Wan promises Han for the same trip 17000 It is also barely than the JK unit from The Cestus Deception And yet Yoda has one in the preuels How much IS the average income of these people? Isn't this a hugely bloated figure? Why does a hoverchair cost than a trip to Alderaan or a JK unit weapon of war? If HOVERCHAIRS cost this much why is Yoda being such a scum bag and zipping along on one in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith? He's wasting good money that could have been used freeing Anakin's mother from slavery2 I do not believe in my wildest nightmares that you can get from Ord Mantell to Vultar to Coruscant in ONE DAY I just don't believe it This whole book should have taken a WEEK or MORE not a whopping TWO DAYS RIDICULOUS And might I add this is supposedly OLD technologythat means that during the days of the Death Star Luke and Ben should have been at Alderaan before they left Tatooine3 Speaking of the whole days of old thingthis doesn't feel in the slightest like a story 3000 years before Luke is born Coruscant is built to the same extreme levels; space travel is the same no wait faster; technology is apparently the same prosthetic legs4 With the exception of ONE character the ENTIRE Character List is human This is a pet peeve of mine about SW EU; in the movies we see all these aliens in the cantina have all these aliens encounters in the preuels and then in the books all the main characters are human It gets so bad that I wonder what the point of having them in a galaxy far far away is Just make it Earth in the year 3000 and the story might be the exact same5 Why the kriff put Ven Zallow in the Character List when he is going to be dead for 75% of the novel? Here is this character that is very interesting and he dies within the first 50 pages Hopefully a book will come out about his exploits before being skeweredAnd thank you for joining us for yet anotherNerd NitpicksHonestly when I started reading these Old Republic tie in books I wasn't very excited I am not a big fan of this era I don't really care for how everything is almost exactly like the classic trilogy with the inclusion of Sith and Mandalorians and I just don't care for the video games that much and to answer your uestion No I've never played KotOR I can't get it to run on my stupid Vista system After reading The Book That Shall Not Be Named it seemed like my suspicions had been confirmedKemp's Deceived however busted those suspicions I'm not saying this is perfect it has flaws up the whazoo but I found parts that I enjoyed and Kemp was a decent writer If you are interested in this era or are playing the TOR MMORPG check it out All others well check out if it sounds interesting but don't feel bad if you pass it over
