    There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

    What did you like best about Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan? What did you like least?

    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.


    Has Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan turned you off from other books in this genre?

    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.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson does many of the voices exceptionally well and his reading is concise. Although, he does mispronounce Bastilla Shan's name.


    Any additional comments?

    Revan is not seen in this book as much as the Sith character Lord Scourge. For the book to be titled
