BioWare and LucasArts - creators of the hugely popular Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game - have combined their storytelling talents and cutting-edge technology for an innovative new massively multiplayer online role-playing game that allows players to create their own personal Star Wars adventure 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader.

Now, number-one New York Times best-selling author Sean Williams brings the world of the game to life in his latest novel, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance.

Tassaa Bareesh, a matriarch in the Hutt crime cartel, is holding an auction that's drawing attention from across the galaxy. Representatives of both the Republic and the Sith Empire are present, along with a Jedi Padawan sent to investigate, a disenfranchised trooper drummed out of the Republic's elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian with a private agenda. But the Republic's envoy is not what he seems, the Empire's delegate is a ruthless Sith apprentice, the Jedi Padawan is determined to do the right thing and terrified that he can't, the trooper hopes to redeem her reputation, and the Mandalorian is somehow managing to keep one step ahead of everyone.

None of these guests - invited or uninvited - have any intention of participating in the auction. Instead they plan to steal the prize, which is locked inside an impregnable vault: two burned chunks of an exploded star cruiser, one of which may hold the key to the wealth of an entire world.

But the truth about the treasure is dangerous and deadly. And in the end, Sith and Jedi, Republic and Empire, must do something they've never done before, something that all the agents of good and evil could never make them do: join together to stop a powerful threat that could destroy the galaxy.

    " Fairly insipid on all points--prose, portrayal of Star Wars backstory, and characters. Fairly is putting it much too fair. Williams is rote in his conventions, his narrative arc and his tone. It really hasn't anything to recommend it. Unbelievable conflict; eyebrow-quirking inanity in Jedi-Sith relations; dead-end dearth of subtlety. Da. That's sums it. "

    " Marc Thompson does an excellent job with the voice acting. This was a surprisingly enjoyable listen. "

    " Enjoyable Star Wars stuff. Nice introduction to The Old Republic verse that the Bioware MMPORPG will exist. I'll have to read Deceived when I finish with the Song of Ice and Fire series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin Stade | 1/16/2014

    " Read strictly as a sci-fi novel this would probably rank a low 3, as a Star Wars novel a high 3 but as a Star Wars novel setting up the new Old Republic MMO it gets 4 stars. I'm too excited about the game to get a good perspective on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward Linder | 1/10/2014

    " Was fun Star Wars Book. No main characters from the films. This is gearing up for the Star Wars MMO coming to a Video Game system or Computer sometime in the near future. "

    " There were so many characters in this book, but the author did not pull me into caring about any of them. Characters were flat and lacked depth. The action scenes were often jumbled and confusing. I gave up half way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane Downton | 12/26/2013

    " Took me a few attempts to finish this but once I got into it, I was glad I finished it. "

    " One of my favorite stars wars books, with Sean Williams being one of my favorite authors that writes them. The characters were all really lovable (Even the evil ones) and the story line was very entertaining. "

    " It was ok. Read it if u got nothing better to read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeremy | 9/24/2013

    " The first Star Wars novel I could not finish. Sorry guys, this one did not hook me in at all. I thought it was because I did not have any previous reference for the main characters, but I read the other novel with Darth Malgus and loved that one. Needless to say, I felt this book meandered a bit. "

    " Husband kinda had to force me to read this but I definitely didn't regret it. Good read I think even if you aren't into Star Wars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malin | 7/5/2013

    " For being what it is, this Star Wars book is exceptionally well written and in all it was much better than I ever expected. If you are a SWTOR fan I definitely recommend it, I found it well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Barnes | 5/22/2013

    " Was really really good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 11/19/2012

    " Had a lot of action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TK | 7/24/2011

    " The best in the star wars old republic series. Williams has a grasp on the Star Wars world and champions that the others like Kemp do not possess. The jumping between plot lines is flawless and makes for a heart pounding and exciting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 4/10/2011

    " long, but pretty cool. i enjoy the star wars universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor | 1/23/2011

    " There is a lot going on in this book, it could have been stretched to two books. The book is a great connection piece between the novels, comics, previous games and the new old republic game.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alejandro | 1/12/2011

    " The ending could have been better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose F. | 1/9/2011

    " I have liked Old Republic-era books before, but I found this confusing... could not identify new characters by name. Only when I got through to page 250 did I get hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/4/2010

    " This is a Star Wars Old Republic era story, but still deals with the Jedi and the Sith. Both sides have to work together to battle a symbiot threat from taking over the universe. Interesting how some of the struggles of the light & dark side of the Force are presented from "the past." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susan | 10/25/2010

    " Wasn't a fan of this. Sigh, these books are hit or miss. "
