    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    Story

    Picked this up spur of the moment. My Sci-Fi library consists mostly of Star Wars Novels, but I wanted a change in scenery. I chose this book solely based on the reviews and description which I have been burned on many times, But I was pleasantly surprised. This book was nothing like I was expecting which turned out to be a good thing. The story is very original and I would have given it a 5/5 but I felt it slowed down towards the middle. The ending did exactly what the author intended it to do, it sucked me in and I cant wait for the next installment. The narration tone was a bit monotonous but overall it was well done. Definitely pick this up if you are looking for great action and a very original story.

    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.

    Story

    This is an excellent entry in The Old Republic series, and by far the BEST!! The narration is almost too good, and along with the music, and sound effects makes this a fantastic experience overall. While listening to this story one thing kept becoming clearer and clearer in my mind. This is the storyline that should have been the premise for the Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic 3 had they not chosen to go the MMO Route (Not A Complaint, Just an Opinion). Any way to follow up this is a must read especially if you played K.O.T.O.R. 1 and 2 and want to get some closure. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!
