5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new Star Wars characters, December 29, 2010
This review is from: Deceived (Star Wars: The Old Republic, Vol. 2) (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Old Republic: Deceived is the story of a Sith Lord who rebels against the Empire, and it comes from the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. Darth Malgus is the Sith Lord who leads Empire troops into Coruscant, destroys the Jedi Temple, and kills Ven Zallow, one of the strongest Jedi Masters. Malgus is driven by his intense beliefs that the Empire should rule, the Jedi should be wiped out, and no mercy should be shown. He is a feared leader among the Sith Lords, but he does have one weakness. He loves a Twi'lek female named Eleena.

Malgus wants to see all of Coruscant leveled but is overruled by the Emperor. The result is the Treaty of Coruscant that gives what is left of the planet back to the Republic in exchange for several extremely important gains by the Empire. Malgus seethes at the weakness of his leaders in not completely wiping out the Republic when possible. His triumph over Ven Zallow also has unexpected results when a young Jedi knight named Aryn Leneer returns to Coruscant seeking a showdown with Malgus for the death of her Master.

The story introduces us to additional interesting characters and moves along at a rapid pace through a number of twists and turns. I found it to be extremely enjoyable to read. The book also gave me one of my new favorite expressions, although I don't know when I will use it. At one point Darth Malgus is ordered by a superior Sith Lord to do some things he does not want to do. Here is how Malgus feels at that point. "In the span of a day he had gone from the conqueror of Coruscant to a second-tier Darth." I love the expression "second-tier Darth."
