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.

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.
Finally, a story that fills in the gaps of Revan's legacy. If you are playing Star Wars The Old Republic online, then this is a must-have for any who crave back story. Through many twists and turns Marc Thompson brings the characters to life and make you feel as if you are standing next to the action. One of my all time favorites!
This is not a straight narration, but a narration with sound effects added in. I could have done without the added sound effects.
If you liked Decieved, this is more of the same.
Revan feels like a lead in to the Jedi story line of the SW:TOR game, as well as a tie from KOTOR to SW:TOR. It's best experienced with the games, as the follow-up is accomplished in-game in SW:TOR.
Don't look for strong female leads here, there aren't any, which is disappointing.
Story didn't end like I had hoped it was but still it was a very good story. Narration was really great along with sound effects to make it sound more alive. Great for listening on a long drive or something of the sorts.
A decade ago Bioware's RPG "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" brought me back to the genre after a long absence of gaming. Set 4000 years before the classic Star Wars universe that we grew up with, the game, with it's compelling story, rich characters, and one of the great all time twists stands as a remarkable achievement in gaming.
It was with great enthusiasm that I approached this book, though I had initially expected it to be a novelization of the time line of the game.
Instead, we're given a story of what happens to the hero after he's ridden off into the sunset and the future challenges he deals with. Overall, I quite frankly wish I hadn't read the story and I don't think it does much for the characters that I cared about from that original game time. I understand this book is intended more to setup the new MMO of The Old Republic and it's unfortunate to see these great characters wasted for a promotional stunt. These characters deserved better than this tale, particularly the endings they were given.
However, as has been the case lately, the story is well produced and the narrator Marc Thompson does an excellent job, aside from a few mispronunciations of some of the names of characters and ships.
Overall it is a great book. Any Star Wars fan will love the tale of Revan. However, to those of you that have played the game Knights of the Old Republic, one might be put off by the narration. What I mean by this is the game sets th voice in your mind and the narrator does a great job, however on some voices don't match the accents nor the expectation the game has. Still though, this is a amazing book and ties perfectly into the new blockbuster hit Star Wars: The Old Republic.
This is an excellent entry in The Old Republic series, and by far the BEST!! The narration is almost too good, and along with the music, and sound effects makes this a fantastic experience overall. While listening to this story one thing kept becoming clearer and clearer in my mind. This is the storyline that should have been the premise for the Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic 3 had they not chosen to go the MMO Route (Not A Complaint, Just an Opinion). Any way to follow up this is a must read especially if you played K.O.T.O.R. 1 and 2 and want to get some closure. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!
After Revan, I likely will not continue to read any further books set in the 'Old Republic' era. I distinctly got the impression that the point of this book was to supplement the SWTOR game, rather than as a free-standing story on its own.
Lord Scourge was great. Very well done.
There were so many fantastic characters in the book. It's a shame that their potential was wasted.
