    Hot on the heels of the unveiling of the cover to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance is this first look at another hardcover set in the time of the eagerly anticipated video game in development by LucasArts and BioWare.

    In Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived, readers will learn more about Darth Malgus, the Sith Lord who brought down the Jedi Temple. Star Wars fans first experienced the devastating might of Darth Malgus in last year's epic cinematic trailer to Star Wars: The Old Republic which depicted the Sacking of Coruscant. Readers will learn more about the man behind the mask in this novel by author Paul S. Kemp.

    Deceived tells the story of Darth Malgus and gives fascinating insight into his rise to fame and glory as the Sith Lord who destroyed the Jedi Temple. This stunning narrative finds the dark hero battling a veteran Jedi Master, setting the stage for the affairs and betrayals surrounding the last battle of the Great War before the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant.

    Deceived is written by Paul S. Kemp with the BioWare and LucasArts teams' full cooperation and creative consultation to bring an accurate account of the explosive incident and the ruthless man behind it.

    This Darth Malgus character is awesome, but I wonder why we need a novel covering events which the trailer covered incredibly well - but I'll reserve judgement as it's being wrote by Paul Kemp! His Crosscurrent novel was awesome continuity, and I expect he'll refer to a menagerie of things in this as well... :D

    Darth Malgus from the Bio posted seems to a Sith who 'thinks outside of the box'. It states that he has accumulated much personal power or influence other than his reputation as a general and combatant. This would seem completely out of character for a Sith and will probably make for an excellent read.

    It may have covered it incredibly dramatically, but I'm not entirely sure it covered it incredibly well. We're missing the guts of the story -- the events leading up to the actual ransacking of the Temple, life and personality for our main characters, and backstory. You can never have too much backstory. ;)
