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.

this story just ends without giving you an actual ending. spoilers from here on.
the ending jumps 40+ years into the future and says that revan must have stopped the bad guy because nothing bad ever happened after he left. completely unsatisfied with this one. first there is a 4 year time jump out of nowhere and then this crap ending. not very well written. but as always, the performance by Marc Thompson is amazing. I could listen to him telling Star Wars stories all day long.
This book is amazing, as someone who played KOTOR and SWTOR I was ecstatic when I saw this book. Although I don't like the ending it's really sad I'm not sure if there's a second book but I'm pretty sure there's not
Awesome book on revan a truely grey jedi. The plot line is excellent. undiscovered area of space that has gone unchecked and the sith rule this space. Revan can not remember what he has forgotten after going from the light side to the dark side and then back again to the light side. He goes on a journey to find out. i will leave it at that. Awesoe audio.
Great book. I just have a difficult time with the voices. It seems like it would be easier to have an actual woman reading the parts of the women characters rather than the male narrator doing them all. It won't prevent me from buying more books, but it won't be any easier to hear with time. Spring for the duet. It's better to hear the different genders in their natural state, than it is to suffer forced androgyny.
I played the original KOTOR games and was disapointed when they weren't finished this book help tie up lose ends and answer unanswered questions.
The story of Revan is one of the greatest stories within the Star Wars universe.
It relies heavily on the back story of the brilliant 'Knights of the Old Republic' games, which could lead it to be somewhat confusing for those who have not played them. However if, like me, you were a huge fan of those outstanding games you will adore this story.
Now you can finally discovered the fate of Revan after the first 'KOTOR' game and be lead through a journey into the unknown regions by a perfect narrator, Mark Thompson. His delivery of the various characters, some of which are among my favourite of all the Star Wars eras and stories, is incredible. With each voice fitting perfectly as he paints a perfect picture of the settings and moods of each scene. I have listened to many of the Star Wars audio books and he remains, by far, my favourite narrator.
I cannot recommend this book enough, especially if you played the 'KOTOR' games. And for those who haven't, I highly recommend those games as well as they will set the stage for this unbelievably well crafted story. They remain to this day my favourite RPG games and this book takes the journey of Revan even further.
"truly brilliant "
is there another one? what happens to revan? I need to know! I'm obsessed hahaha
"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
"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
