If you loved the video game, then you'll love this book! Drew Karpyshyn knows his Star Wars, and it shows with this epic tale of Revan, trying to find answers of his hidden memories, still locked inside his head. He will venture into deep space to find out the truth about his fall to the dark side Familiar comrades will make you smile every time you hear them speak. I won't spoil it for you.
The narrator delivered a solid performance with his well done acting and voice over. I have 2 complaints about Marc Thompson.
First: His voice for Darth Nyriss, sounds like an old Italian woman.
2nd : Bastilla voice is out of character, she acts like a helpless woman than a badass in the original Kotor, It's not the way it's been written cause Drew knows Bastilla but Marc acting. other than that, it's awesome, epic, and really good. Get it now!
There are no words to explain how good this book so you just have to get it and listen to it ......before you die so get it right know cuz who knows what tomorrow brings
This is an excellent recording. The performance is top notch, capturing each and every character's essence beautifully and the background music and sound effects really take the listener into the world for a full-fledged experience. Excellent story as well, filling in all the gaps that were left in the "Knights of the Old Republic" video games.
I love darth revan and his whole story through the games and his legends throughout history, but this book does a strange job at showing it. There are a few times where referencing the games and lore overrides good story telling, additionally some methods of connecting the games, such as the reasoning behind why HK-47 was on the ebon hawk in Kotor II are a little far fetched. That being said there were still some moments that made me leap out of my seat at the excitement of rev an and the power of some of the sith. Over all I'm glad i read this book though it could be better.
his performance of rev an was great, especially in the change at the end. Scourge was cool but at times it was a little flat, as in the inflections were similar in many sentences. overall pretty good
This book tied up a lot of loose ends from the Kinghts of the Old Republic game. To get to listen to more adventures dealing with such a great character like Revan was awesome. The narration by Marc Thompson was spot on and I hope to listen to another book he has narrated very soon.
the reader was very pleasant to listen to. I felt the book was written very well and the story was very intriguing.

The overall story was good. Not as great as the 1st two in the Darth Bane Trilogy, but good. My problem is inconsistencies in the story. Since this takes place in the new non-canon "Legends" universe, I guess I can take it for face value, but I thought this was supposed to be consistent with the events leading up to the revealing of the True Sith Empire to the Galaxy.
In other Old Republic Legends continuity, the galaxy doesn't become aware of the existence of Vitiate's empire until Malgus leads his assault to retake Korriban from the Republic. The retaking of Korriban was the first world taken in an effort to expand and reveal the Empire. In this story, however, the Empire is taking worlds left and right, and this is occurring hundreds of years before Malgus' invasion was even a glint in the Emperor's eye, and we're supposed to believe this is occurring right under the Republic's nose? Nuh-uh...
Also, loved loved LOVED the voice actor's portrayal of Lord Scourge and Canderous. I gave a 5/5 stars for Marc's performance.
My other issue is why is Lord Scourge pushing his limits fighting a bunch of factory security droids? Scourge is immortal, the Emperor's Wrath, and revered by all Sith, but gets winded when attacked by a standard factory assault droid. I felt this scene was a little too drawn out and dramatic considering Scourge's nearly unlimited potential to draw upon the dark side of the force.
