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.

I've played both of the Knights of the Old Republic video games and it was nice to have the two stories brought together.
I did enjoy Lord Scourge's exit from the research facility. It reminded me of some of the antics from games I've played. Lots of fun.
He did a good job of bringing each character to life and giving them individual personality. That can be hard to do when you're one person trying to create many individuals.
I was surprised when Lord Scourge turned on the Jedi. I did not see that coming.
Yes I would listen again because so much seems to happen you tend to miss a lot . As a Star Wars fan I have seen all the movies at least five times why not the books?
The entire listening experience is what does it for me with all audible books.
Great insite and entertainment.
Just made me Dream again as I did after my first Star Wars experience after the very first movie. Long long ago.
Great story. Great reading Great book
The performance is always great in these books!
Yes, I have enjoyed his works in the past and will again.
I would have liked to.
Have not read novel.
Author has done excellent work on this and Darth Bane series.
Ending was a complete surprise.
A must for any Star Wars fan.
Yes, this book is amazingly well written and ties in closely with the "Star Wars: The Old Republic" MMO video game released in late 2011. You are going to find familiar characters and new ones that all have well written personalities and will make you smile.
The most memorable part of the book is not the climactic finale of Revan but the birth of a new legend that draws in many more heroes and villains that battle on long after Revan's story has ended.
Honestly, Marc Thompson does a great job imitating almost every character's voice with the exception of Darth Nyriss. His voice also really can show you Lord Scourge's furious mind and the conflict within Revan's. The real problem with the performance is the pronunciation of the names. Clearly, Mr. Thompson has never played through Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic or Star Wars: The Old Republic because he pronounces even the main characters names incorrectly. Examples of this mispronunciation include "Bastilla", "The Ebon Hawk", and "Dromund Kaas."
I did listen to this book in one sitting. It is a story that will grab you and not let you go. If you listen before playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, you will become familiar with many characters that are featured before the game, if you listen after, you will find yourself thinking "Oh, so that's why he acts like that" about a few characters and it never disappoints regardless of if you have played the game or not.
The music in concert with great narrator made this audio book amazing the story is enjoyable but the accompaniments ( Sound effects, music) made it come alive.
Bastila had to be my favorite. As Revan's companion she was the truly strongest character.
The Narrator does a great jobn with all voice work.
I wanted to sadly my schedule did not allow. But like any good book I was always in a hurry to get back to it.
Revan,it ranks well in the (New) The old Republic series. THese first books are there to fill in a backstory that has either fallen into obscurity or just not there.
it was Revan, wow. He wasn't dead. but was at the Temple.
It is equal to any other book
Revan, the rise and fall of a strong Jedi
Very fun to listen to! Marc Thompson is the best at narrating science fiction books. Please narrate all of the new and upcoming Star Wars books. Extremely entertaining!
I was rather dispointed by the ending of the story. It was as if the author didn't know how to finish the story. There was the build up and then nothing.
I have never been disapointed by any book I have listened to that Marc Thompson has done.
If you have played Knights of the Old Republic 1&2, then you are familiar with the characters. Revan, was considered one if the most powerful sith/ jedi of the old republic, and as a fan was excited what story would take place where the games left off. Let's just say I was hoping for more, and the story didn't end.
