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.
"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.
"A particular taste"
The writing is good enough for a casual 'beach listen' style but don't think about it too much. It is an entertaining listen for any Star Wars fans but probably won't hang together as an ordinary scifi listen if you aren't a Star Wars fan.
The production of the audio book is much more in the style of a dramatisation with sound effects etc.I'm not sure how I feel about that really.
Altough I didn't knew Revan, reading this book while playing Star Wars the old republic proved helpful.
I got to know the history of how the emperor came to power, some knowledge about the planets like Dromund Kaas, history about the mandalorians, etc...
The book is very action and lightsaber fight oriented. I didn't find it dull at all.
The narrator was excellent comparing to other audio books, I especially liked all the StarWars FX'es in the book. The sound of explosions, lightsabers, starwars soundtracks, background humming etc made it great.
My review would probably been different would it not have been an audio book and would I not be playing the new MMORPG StarWars the old republic.
Even though it was well written(ish) it bears no resemblance to other Jedi/Sith stories what so ever
