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 the price of redemption was high. 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. Somehow he stumbled across a terrible secret that threatens the very existence of the Republic. With no idea what it is, or how to stop it, Revan may very well fail, for he’s never faced a more powerful and diabolic enemy. But only death can stop him from trying.

Good story, good delivery, but my biggest complaint is when Niris is fleeing Nitheema and she does leave the cockpit until she was on the edge of the solar system MILLIONS of kilometers away. ROFL!!! It should be hundreds of BILLIONS.
Thus story takes place after Regan has been through the Hyperspace war, become a sith and come back to the light. on his road to trace his steps and stop a new evil in the galaxy.
Even though they come from a video game, the old republic are some awesome SW stories. This is one of my all time favorites.
the narrator has the perfect understanding to what Revan must be like.
felt the dilemma in Revan , the conflict, the Force.
I will not say I don't want to ruin it.
the only good Revan is a bad one.
I enjoyed listening to this story, but agree with other reviews that the tale of Regan is missing something. not enough of the story focused on him for my taste and I wanted more.
"Good but suffers from being a tag on to a PC game"
A good book but it suffers a little from being a 'link' book that is part of a computer game and comic book series. Having not played the game or read the comics I felt like I was missing about 25% of what was going on/background story which was a bit of a let down.
First audio book. Amazing place to start! Will be listening to full series enjoying alot
"fantastic loved it"
Was told to listen to starwars revan and after putting it off for a while decided to ... wow must read
"Nice story loved the voices"
loved the story and the effects the voices from each character was really good a must get audio book if u are a star wars fan :-)
"Your powers are weak Re-van"
I would listen to SWTOR again because I am a Star Wars fanatic and love to learn as much as I can about the Star Wars universe.
I enjoyed this book, it added a new dimension to my knowledge and experience of the Star Wars universe. I was concerned that there might have been hordes of new characters and planets to get to grips with but pleasantly I was not overwhelmed.Admittedly the plot isn't the greatest in the world and the sound effects are a little cursory in places rather than adding to the experience, but I did enjoy it and recommend it to anyone who's a fan of the franchise.
Absolutely awesome and epic possibly the best star wars story I've ever Listened
I recommend this for everyone
"It was a great story with excellent narration!"
It was a very interesting story especially if you have enjoyed the Knights of the old republic games. The narration was near perfect. Women's voices sometimes sound a little comical but that is to be expected. Other than that it was excellent narration. Thoroughly enjoyed the audio book and have already downloaded the second in the series.
This was about absolutely compelling listen expertly read. The addition of background noise fitting the scene of what's going on was a great addition to the immersion to allow the reader/listener to draw a picture of the scene. The revelation of what happened to Revan after KOTOR has always intrigued me and reignited my love for the series.
If you haven't already read or listened to this its a must for any Star Wars Knights of the old Republic fan as it finishes the story of the two characters from the games. You won't be disappointed with this book
First Audiobook I have downloaded from Audible.
Suprisingly Lord Scourge steals the show with an interesting story arc, an unexpectedly three dimensional character.
Fans of Knights of the old republic and the sequel will appreciate the bridging of the two games and padding of the lore. With a bittersweet story, strong characters and immersive world this is well worth a listen.
