4.5 Score: 4.5 (From 457 Ratings)


There’s something out there:
a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic‚ÄĒ
unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it.

Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians‚ÄĒand 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‚Äôs left are nightmares‚ÄĒand 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.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!


  • One of my favorite books

    By VenomousAcorn
    I loved this book, he only downside was the ending, which I expected to be a little less devastating. Other than that this was a great book.
  • Terrible ending

    By Bastiancant
    This book was a really exciting and entertaining read until the end. The ending seemed rushed and pointlessly trashed some of the SW universe's best characters. It did a disservice to fans. I'm pretending that I never read this.
  • Very good read

    By en21b
    This book was very good. It will be a good read for any Star Wars fan regardless of their knowledge of the expanded universe. It is a must read for anyone that plays SWTOR.
  • Fantastic

    By Hownot2 pl47
    I haven't played Kotor so I don't know the full back story of the characters, but I still think it's a phenomenal book.
  • A Personal Favorite

    An amazing adventure for a complex and beloved character!
  • Doesn't do Justice

    By ErelasInglor
    Sadly this story of Revan completely destroys his character and disregards the amazing story told to us through the games. In essence, it seeks to explain his destination better left untold and then kill off his character. It ruins Revan for the fan of the originals. So glad it can't be considered canon.
  • Loved it!

    By 1stguy
    Loved the two original KOTOR games. *********SPOILER ALERT******** The ending is not your traditional fairy tale ending. You will be in your feelings! ūüėä
  • Terrible ending (spoilers

    Overall the book was interesting and fast paced but the betrayal by scourge end the final battle and the fate of revan ruined the book for me
  • An average Star Wars book

    By JLMess
    Although the book is based in legend surrounding the Old Republic game, it was still fairly easy to gather the history of the character. This particular book in the series moves a bit slower and the story seems a bit ‚Äúpieced-together‚ÄĚ rather than flowing smoothly. The parts about Mandalorian history and the history between Revan and Malak are very interesting, but only play backstory roles. I would recommend Revan to any Star Wars fan just for the history provided. The most engaging parts of the plot for me were the details of the Emperor, how he came into power, and how he had maintained that position for so long. Looking back on this book, I think fondly on the absolute menace of the emperor but very much less in the novel.
  • Not bad, until the end......

    By Spaceghostxxxxxxxxxx
    The ending ruined would have been a good book . The entire story sets would should have been a great show down...very disappointing
