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.

Just awful. Ruined Revan, Canderous, and Bastilla as characters for me. If you are looking for an engaging story about Revan, maybe the story about the Mandolorian wars or finding the Star Forge, you will be just as disappointed as I am. This takes place well after the events of the game end and it is absolutely awful. I don't think I will take a chance on another Star Wars book for a while.
Currently listening to all the Star Wars books.
loved it. The second half of the book kicked ass.
The first 50 pages were a struggle to get through. After that it was awesome.
Its the best book I have ever read. Honestly I wish they would of made a trilogy of movies based on this rather than the ones they did, its that good.
It fills in the gaps between Kotor 1,2 and SWTOR perfectly. If you haven't played these games, you might be lost though. SWTOR would come after this story, and is not necessary to read to understand the importance of the story here.
This was the first audible I have listened to. With having a love for the KTOR universe, this book brought life to a once favored storyline. The introduction of characters by Mark T. was amazing. I look forward to continuing the series.
"This badly written book destroyed Revan."
This book is supposed to continue the legend of Revan after KOTOR. Revan was once the greatest of Jedi, then the greatest of Sith and finally returned to the light to become again the greatest of Jedi of his time. This book turns Revan into a very normal unimpressive failure. The author repeatedly has Revan fail and attempts to make the fail seem like some sort of victory. Revan is almost pointless in this book. The Jedi exile comes out of this book as the heroic character that Revan should have been. I won't spoil the ending but I will say that it basically turns the entire book into one long advert for the new Star Wars The Old Republic game. Very very disappointing. Badly written pointless book that destroys Revan while trying to suck you into the new game. Avoid.
