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.

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.
Alright story but that ending is not what I wanted and it bothered me to see a character I care so much about not have a good resolution and just there to be a set up for a game
"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.
"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...
The story of Revan is one of the greatest stories within the Star Wars universe.
It relies heavily on the back story of the brilliant 'Knights of the Old Republic' games, which could lead it to be somewhat confusing for those who have not played them. However if, like me, you were a huge fan of those outstanding games you will adore this story.
Now you can finally discovered the fate of Revan after the first 'KOTOR' game and be lead through a journey into the unknown regions by a perfect narrator, Mark Thompson. His delivery of the various characters, some of which are among my favourite of all the Star Wars eras and stories, is incredible. With each voice fitting perfectly as he paints a perfect picture of the settings and moods of each scene. I have listened to many of the Star Wars audio books and he remains, by far, my favourite narrator.
I cannot recommend this book enough, especially if you played the 'KOTOR' games. And for those who haven't, I highly recommend those games as well as they will set the stage for this unbelievably well crafted story. They remain to this day my favourite RPG games and this book takes the journey of Revan even further.
"truly brilliant "
is there another one? what happens to revan? I need to know! I'm obsessed hahaha
"Good but suffers from being a tag on to a PC game"
A good book but it suffers a little from being a 'link' book that is part of a computer game and comic book series. Having not played the game or read the comics I felt like I was missing about 25% of what was going on/background story which was a bit of a let down.
First audio book. Amazing place to start! Will be listening to full series enjoying alot
