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.

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.
Horrors Hospice Nurse
the voice acting was great. all of the characters pretty much sound the way you think they would. the part of the story dealing with Revan and his search was great. when it starts to shift Focus towards the end it kind of lost my interest.
I believe Revan's story would make a much better movie then the starwar's movies they are coming out with now. He has all the character traits that make him much like a Japanese horror movie.
"Best star wars book"
One of the most interesting star wars books I have listened to. Listened twice already.
"My favourite Star Wars novel i've read/listened to"
Enjoyed this more than any Star Wars novel i've listened to or read, great to finally find out what happened to Revan after the events of Knights Of The Old Republic videogame, a welcome addition was also the inclusion of other characters from the videogames. I'd recommend this as a standalone novel also as it does explain past events but any person who has played the games will benefit from the book or enjoy it more in my opinion. The narrator does an excellent job, especially his depiction of Sith Lord Skurge who is one of the main characters in the book. My only reason for giving 4 stars and not 5 for performance is my slightly picky opinion that they should use a female narrator for female parts although I know this is very rare.
"This is the best thing ever!"
Awesome!, Vivacious and Powerful.
The story of course! (Also the narration of the author)
Marc Thompson actually made me visualize the area, persons, actions, voices, appearances and actually all of it. It was like watching a movie.
Yes, actually! Some parts made me laugh, some surprised me and also a lot of parts shocked me.
Every Star Wars fan has to read this book. I find the Story of the Old Republic better then the movies.
"an enjoyable audiobook with a good story"
voice of over was good and the story engaging. is there any of the books that follow-on from this one pick up where it left off?
amazed by the depth and forsight of both sides of the force and where it has taken its ocupants!
Damn this was awesome I am chomping at the bit to find out more. The force is strong with this book A+++++++++
It was a lot better than I expected and it drew me right in to the story. It was excellent and I recommend it to anyone who is a Star Wars fan
"Very well performed."
Nice story but very predictable characters and plot. Slightly nice twist to end but nothing inspiring.
I really thought this was a great book loved every chapter especially Lord scourge(probably spelt wrong sorry) though I might be a bit biased because I love Star Wars and the old republic was my favourite era and Revan is one of my favourite characters along with malgus and valkorion. I think mark Thompson did a good job narrating but sometimes the sound effects weren't so good but it definitely didn't ruin it. The story shined beast with scourge I did really like the book and I would recommend it to anyone and I say it's a must listen if you like swtor or the Star Wars universe
"Unbelievable story for lovers of Kotor and Revan!"
Narrated brilliantly and gripping story. Brilliant for wanting a fitting end to the mystery behind both Kotor games and an insight into the MMO characters of Revan, Scourge and the Emperor. Highly recommend this title and would recommend this to anyone who loves star wars as this will be your new favourite story...
