Publisher's Summary

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.

Skip it.

I loved playing the Kotor games. Wouldn't I love hearing a story about it? Well, not this one. This book is a prime example of how a moderately interalesting book can be ruined by its final chapter. My heart sank and I was angry about the lame finish. The beginning seemed very confusing and I had to read several articles on Wookipedia to make sure I was understanding correctly. Skip this one if you liked the kotor games. The narrator is impeccable though.

Great performance

loved the background sound effects and ambient music. This book helped me dive back into the deep star wars lore in a way that was easy to follow and remain hooked throughout.

Amazing!!!!!

Loved this book. Great story and it is very well written. I could picture it in great detail. Started it over as soon as I finished!! It is a great complement to the game if you played Knights of the Old Republic. I would have liked the narrator to pronounce things correctly, such as Bastilla and Coruscant. And the lightsaber battle sound effects are extremely repetitive and recognizable, and were also used in the Deceived audiobook haha

Fantastic story. Very happy I bought this title.

If you're a Star Wars fan this book is a fantastic look into the early days of the Jedi before the Battle of Yavin and the current era. The Old Republic series is a must read especially if you play the game.

This is by far one of the best audio books I have listened to. Between the sound effects / great narrating, the book really does come to life. It leaves you wanting so much more!

Great book with an amazing tie to a beloved game

I thought this book was well written and performed perfectly. A lot of people complain about the ending but I disagree. I won't argue with how it ended. Yes I wish revan and bastila could have lived happily ever after but that's just not revans story. For more on his influence check out what happened to his family and also darth bane

Great story and Well read!

A great compelling story which should be brough into canon.

Marc Thompson's performance was great. with each different character having a unique voice which really added to the experience.

I'm glad this isn't Canon anymore

This book had moments when I was actually enjoying it but there were just too many times were I was taken out of the experience. at the very beginning I was getting so annoyed at the amount of time they were spending on Scourge that I thought it was his book. Bastilas voice was terrible as was Canderous. I hated the ending, Revan was hardly even in this book even though he was the best thing in it but he never got the chance to hit top gear.

Not the best Star Wars novel, but still good.

A little misleading; I was expecting DARTH Revan. But still a good story.
Marc Thompson is excellent and a very good voice actor.
The production was amazing too, complete with music and sound effects. Somewhere between a narration and performance!

Entrancing

Simply put this is a great book. It is narrated well, with a fantastic accompanying soundtrack and well timed sound effects to help draw you into the storyline. However, where it really exceeds is its relation to the rest of the Old Republic era. If you're a fan of the KotOR and Old Republic games and accompanying novels then this is a must!

Fantastic continuation of the KOTOR story.

Really immersive with the sound effects and voice acting. a great way to round off the experience of playing through both of the games.

an enjoyable audiobook with a good story

voice of over was good and the story engaging. is there any of the books that follow-on from this one pick up where it left off?
