Great read, but too short,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived (Hardcover)If you have read Paul Kemps previous Star Wars novel Crosscurrent like me then you will be pleased to hear he has done it again and created an action packed novel with strong well written characters. At its heart lies Darth Malgus who is shown to be anything but your typical Sith Lord, what with his code of honour and his love for his 'servant'. He makes a refreshing change from the usual Sith Lords featured in these novels.The other two main characters in book are likable, although the ex soldier forced to turn to crime to pay for his sick daughter's treatment is a bit of a cliche.
What lets the novel down is its length, coming in at only 255 pages compared to usual of at 300. The rest of the book is just padded with filler designed to get you to buy the Fate of the Jedi novels.
Overall it is a good read but over too soon.
