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 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.

I enjoyed the writing and the performance was generally good, but both neither was standout. It drove me insane that Marc Thompson pronounced the "Ebon" in "Ebon Hawk" as ee-bon (like in "teen") rather than e-bon (like "ebony").
With regards to the writing, Bastilla has been neutered.

While the story follows many of the tropes of its type, it is well written and excellently performed.
