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.

Absolutely loved it! Great wrap-up to Star Wars KOTOR II leading up to Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Another great performance by Mark, capturing the reader in heavy moments and surprise twists every step of the way.
Absolutely loved this book and the narration. Twists and turns, battles and debates. Really great journey to ubderstanding what could be the only person that truly relates to the force and all it's aspects.
Raven has the flu been one of the Keystone story points of the Star Wars universe. it's become historic that when a Jedi is bouncing between the light and the dark they seem to become the more powerful force users and Raven is an excellent story of that balance
Interesting characters, lots of action, great performance.
First part of four books in the Old Republic series, followed by Deceived.
I liked how he gave Scourge a Batman voice. Some of the accents were pretty random, but they worked.
Sequel/follow-up to the Old Republic game.
Not so big on the ending, I guess we'll see what happens in the next installment.
I will make note of my bias: the KOTOR games are some of my favorite games I have ever played. This book is essentially built on the back story of these 2 games, if you haven't played them you will find yourself quite confused on the who the main characters are and their backstories. WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE GAMES AHEAD.
This book was the missing link I was looking for that the KOTOR games did not provide. The gameplay and story lines of the games were awesome, but in the 2nd KOTOR game I felt lost and wished that Revan played more of a role in its story. This book gave me so much closure with the games and essentially revealed the information I so desperately craved. I finally found out: What happened to Revan? Why is the exile so important? Why don't these games connect? How come there isn't a KOTOR 3??? (I'm not a huge fan of the MMORPG).
This book gave life and connection to the games that I saw was missing. It is the grand finale of the tales of these 2 great characters you play as in KOTOR.
I also loved the production and storytelling of Marc Thompson. I honestly felt like I was watching the movie, but with no video.
I am biased about this because I played the KOTOR games, but Revan is definitely my favorite. He is the most unique Jedi I have read about. He truly finds the balance of the force in the dark and light. He exposes the fact that both the Jedi Order and the Sith Empire are flawed studies of the force. There is a grey line between the two that gives it's user true connection and power from the force.
I felt very happy in the beginning, it made me start playing the games all over again to recreate the canon this book created.
My only negative comment about this book is it's ending. I found the ending clear, but so abrupt. It felt forced like the author didn't have ample time to finish. The ending itself I was not a huge fan of, but that is due to my bias towards certain characters.
A great story and well told. It's 5AM now and work is in a couple of hours. I have just spent the past 6 hours lying in the dark unable to turn off this audiobook and go to sleep just completely captivated by the story.
This was my first audible book and I think I chose wisely. Revan is my favorite star wars character and I enjoyed hearing what happened to him after the game "Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic" try it out. It is now on android. But this audiobook has a great story and storytelling, the narrator did well with the voices and the background music and sound effects were awesome. Other than price I would say to definitely get this one, I got it for free for my first book on audible, but I'm sure there are other coupons you can find and use. Awesome book though.
