Malgus deserves another book, this one was great, I really liked his character.

He reminded somewhat of Bane for some reason.

Well I just finished reading the book. I have to say it was good, but IMO not half as good as the Bane Trilogy. Nor was it as great as Path of Destruction by itself. Just my veiw.

I really liked this book. Paul S. Kemp might be my favorite SW author now, I haven't disliked a single book he wrote. Cool

Deceived was pretty good, but I do have to admit, I really loved the Darth Bane trilogy and Dynasty of Evil in particular. Bane had a certain degree of epicness to his story. But that was a trilogy, so Dynasty had two whole books to build up to it. Kind of unfair to compare Deceived to it.

Now comparing Deceived to Fatal Alliance, I'd easily say Deceived was better and more enjoyable. I thought Fatal Alliance was a good read, but Deceived had a nice character depth to it that I appreciated.

If we did see a sequel, I'd like to see Malgus have a bigger part, and new good guy characters. Aryn and Zeerid were good characters, but I like the way it ended, and picking up with Zeerid again would change that.

I want to read this book so bad.

Someone said its a sequel to Fatal alliance. Actually its a prequel as it tells the story of the sacking of Coruscant and thats mentioned in FA.

Love TOR era. So many great stories to be told. Much more interesting then tHe Clone Wars.

I hope Del Rey release more books from this era.

Ive just finished the paerback version of this book.

What I noticed at the back is they have an overview of the FOTJ series with a look at the major characters of the series and some minor ones. I thought it was cool especially for new readers to that series. Wonder will this be a regular thing now in SW paperbacks?

Now I'm tempted to go to a book store and check this out. Cool

I think what would really be awesome is to add some bonus content at the end in the form of art and in-universe info on new worlds, cities, factions, and tech. Just like a mini EU guide for new stuff brought up in the story. It would help compensate for the long wait times between character, atlas, ship, etc guides.

This was in the hardcover version, too.

Just finished my re-read of this. It really needs a sequel, I want more Malgus!

Karpyshyn said Malgus won't be showing up in his new book, but we will get to see Malgus' apprentice.

That's...disheartening...

After how disappointed I was with Revan I'm not sure Karpyshyn writing is enough for me to be excited. I'd rather see Kemp again.

They've kept that under wraps pretty well and its making me curious. Kemp is the author that gets me excited these days since Stover has been absent for awhile, so I guess I'll just brace myself for whatever. But I hope Malgus is involved, with The Old Republic stuff kind of dancing around the game and expecting you to know the plot of the MMO it'd be nice to get more character focus for Darth Thanton or Malgus or Vitiate and such.
