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 have not read the print version but if you enjoy audio books...this is top notch!
Surprisingly Lord Scourge...as the story went along his character really seemed to transform from blunt object to someone who was introspective and even relatable.
It is a bit long for that...but it will hold your interest.
This title is a good way to start off with the series. It has a great story path with some nostalgic throw back to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. It reaches many expectations to know what has happened before the events of Star Wars: The Old Republic. If you plan on getting this book, it's worth it. Also the narrator is phenomenally versed.
If you loved the video game, then you'll love this book! Drew Karpyshyn knows his Star Wars, and it shows with this epic tale of Revan, trying to find answers of his hidden memories, still locked inside his head. He will venture into deep space to find out the truth about his fall to the dark side Familiar comrades will make you smile every time you hear them speak. I won't spoil it for you.
The narrator delivered a solid performance with his well done acting and voice over. I have 2 complaints about Marc Thompson.
First: His voice for Darth Nyriss, sounds like an old Italian woman.
2nd : Bastilla voice is out of character, she acts like a helpless woman than a badass in the original Kotor, It's not the way it's been written cause Drew knows Bastilla but Marc acting. other than that, it's awesome, epic, and really good. Get it now!
There are no words to explain how good this book so you just have to get it and listen to it ......before you die so get it right know cuz who knows what tomorrow brings
This is an excellent recording. The performance is top notch, capturing each and every character's essence beautifully and the background music and sound effects really take the listener into the world for a full-fledged experience. Excellent story as well, filling in all the gaps that were left in the "Knights of the Old Republic" video games.
I love darth revan and his whole story through the games and his legends throughout history, but this book does a strange job at showing it. There are a few times where referencing the games and lore overrides good story telling, additionally some methods of connecting the games, such as the reasoning behind why HK-47 was on the ebon hawk in Kotor II are a little far fetched. That being said there were still some moments that made me leap out of my seat at the excitement of rev an and the power of some of the sith. Over all I'm glad i read this book though it could be better.
his performance of rev an was great, especially in the change at the end. Scourge was cool but at times it was a little flat, as in the inflections were similar in many sentences. overall pretty good
This book tied up a lot of loose ends from the Kinghts of the Old Republic game. To get to listen to more adventures dealing with such a great character like Revan was awesome. The narration by Marc Thompson was spot on and I hope to listen to another book he has narrated very soon.
