The best part of the book is how it ties in the mysteries of the story of Revan as seen from the two video games: Knights of the Old Republic & Knights of the Old Republic: Sith Lords.
My least favorite element of the work is the ending - not to be confused with the Epilogue. It is rushed, and does not leave the reader feeling fulfilled after a strong build-up. After thinking about it, the ending does not make much sense in context of the situation of the two warring sides as set down by the novel. Revan's vaunted tactical expertise is sadly ignored by his actions.
No. For the most part, the Star Wars books are fair pulp books with common plots that can be found in many other Sci-Fi novels. There are some exceptions to this and even some of the more common plot stories are decently crafted. It is for me like literary fast food: somewhat tasty but not very filling.
Marc Thompson does many of the voices exceptionally well and his reading is concise. Although, he does mispronounce Bastilla Shan's name.
Revan is not seen in this book as much as the Sith character Lord Scourge. For the book to be titled
For anybody that read superhero comics as a kid, this is a real treat. I really took to Mechani-CAL's character immediately. The piece was a pure classic comic-book story. Alien's, super-villians, less than super villians, mind control, and dinosaurs. Yes, Dinosaurs. I really enjoyed the book and it was a fun listen thanks to the excellent work of the narrators. If you want a book to rekindle your past love of comics, this is definitely one that will fit the bill. Great work by Jim Bernheimer. I hope to see more of these kinds of stories from him again.
