(Star Wars: The Old Republic, #2)
by Paul S. Kemp (2011)

The second novel introduces the Sith warrior Darth Malgus.

Malgus brought down the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in a brutal assault that shocked the galaxy. But if war crowned him the darkest of Sith heroes, peace would transform him into something far more heinous—something Malgus would never want to be, but cannot stop, any more than he can stop the rogue Jedi fast approaching.

Another decent story, only loosely related to the previous book. Well done, it ramps up slowly to final confrontations but still delivers some unexpected twists.
