Summary:

Deceived is a book about Darth Malgus's life after the attack on the Jedi Temple. The book begins with two parallel stories, with Zeerid Korr and Aryn Leneer in one and Malgus in the other. Malgus attacks the Jedi Temple and kills Aryn's mentor Ven Zallow in a duel. Aryn feels his death through the force and seeks revenge on whoever killed him, turning her back on the Jedi order to do so. After the temple is captured by the Sith, they use it as leverage to try to negotiate a peace treaty, much to Aryn and Malgus's irritation. Malgus wishes to continue the conflict, as he believes that only through this conflict one can fully understand the force. Aryn needs a pilot to get to the newly captured Coruscant, and she gets the help of Zeerid Korr, a former Republic soldier and now spice runner. Their ship gets shot down as they try to get through the Sith blockade and they crashland onto Coruscant. Aryn decides to instead kill Malgus's lover to make him feel what she felt when Zallow died. Aryn decides against it when the time comes because it isn't what Zallow would have wanted. Malgus and Aryn have a second fight, this time Malgus wins but spares Aryn because she spared his lover Eleena. Malgus kills Eleena himself as he sees her as a weakness. The book ends with Malgus plotting to take over the Empire and Zeerid and Aryn settling down on a farm.

Thoughts:

This is one of my favorite Star Wars novels that I have read. I absolutely loved Malgus's character and how his ideologies clashed with that of his Sith leaders. I feel like that is something you only really see in stories about Jedi so it's a bit refreshing. I didn't find Aryn and Zeerid's romance to be annoying, it was actually quite wholesome. The story felt like it ended as a win for both groups, as Aryn and Zeerid got a peaceful farming life and Malgus got the opportunities to take over the Empire, so there wasn't really a winning side. All of the scenes where Zeerid is piloting a ship are super good. I know that it sounds oddly specific, but it's just something I remember specifically enjoying. I would recommend this book to any Star Wars fan looking to delve a little deeper into the lore and history of Star Wars. ( )

Touches on the continuity b/n the dark and "light" sides of the force and questions whether love can be had on either "side" ( )

And this is why I've been reading Star Wars chronologically: to prep for The Old Republic MMO. Malgus was decent (and I wanted to read more) and the ending was a bit sugar-coated and traditional, but all and all, I'm glad I read it, if only to better understand the released game trailers. ( )

Overall, the last Old Republic book I'll be buying. It was so blase and the characters had no time to get any real depth. It feels like the Star Wars universe is turning into a Forgotten Realms kind of place. Hack and Slash writing with completely forgettable characters. ( )

Darth Malgus is the most amazing character Star Wars has ever had in my opinion. He occupies a unique time period of Star Wars history that truly lets him flourish. The Sith Empire has come out of hiding and has begun to wage war on the Republic and the Jedi. Malgus fights many battles against them, even facing off against Satele Shan on Alderaan. During this book, peace negotiations are occurring. At the same time, Malgus is on Coruscant and takes part in one of the coolest battles in Star Wars. He simply walks right into the Jedi temple. As the Jedi stand them watching Malgus, a Republic cruiser crashes through the wall and lands on the floor. The front compartment opens up and about thirty Sith come pouring out. The battle that commences is catastrophic, and the Sith take the temple and the planet. Unfortunately for Malgus, the war is declared over as a peace treaty has been agreed upon. Malgus realizes that he doesn't care about defeating the Jedi, he just wants to fight. He finds a rival Sith lord and fights him, beginning his life as neither a Sith nor a Jedi. You get to truly understand exactly what is going through the minds of Sith lords in this book. The story of Aryn Lenner is also one that is cool. Her ending is sweet and not one that is expected considering she is a Jedi. Her battle with Malgus shows that it is possible for respect and understanding to exist between two people who are fighting on different sides of a war. This book captivated my interest and I recommend it to all true fans of Star Wars. ( )
