Format: Paperback
This is just pointless filler, ruining classic characters for no reason.

The original KOTOR was an industry changing masterpiece. What added to it was the inclusion of a believable love story between characters you learned to care about.

This book takes those characters and feeds their lives into a meat grinder for seemingly no reason at all.

---------------------SPOLIER WARNING-------------------------------

So Revan and Bastila only have a few years together so Revan can travel to the other side of the galaxy, immediately get captured and spend FOUR YEARS IN A PRISON CELL.
EXCITING!

I actually can't think of a dumber storyline in the SW universe. A celebrated kick ass hero just sits in his cell for four years......and this is fiction mind you.
Then he fights the Emperor and IMMEDIATELY fails and gets captured again.
How did this guy save the universe before?

And his sacrifice stops the emperor invading earlier?
It really seems like Revan and Bastila could have had a great life together and the Emperor invaded when he did for some other dumb reason.
They picked the date based on canon convenience, they didn't require or need Revan's "sacrifice".

So the whole thing just comes off as ruining brilliant characters for no reason.

The only thing it did accomplish was stating that Revan meet the Emperor before. Which was covered in other media before the Old Rebublic game was complete.

Plus if you want the hero to stop someone invading, LET HIM BLOW SOMETHING UP. Not hypnotise the guy in his sleep.

---------------------SPOILER WARNING ENDS-------------------------------

Also I remember when a SW hardback being really good was taken as read (heh).

the book ties up both the kotor games but i wonder if the wriiter had his hands tied behind his back because of ToR and the game's story line (the revanite quests may have blocked a good conclusion).

overall the book pace was good but it didnt pace up quicker and the suporting cast was not well developed.

a little disapointed but it passed a family christmas ;)

I love the Old republic and the KOToR games and this book is a great addition. It answers so many questions to answers raised in KOToR I & II. Not to mention that the writer helps write The Old Republic!

AWESOME!!

I haven't finished this book, as I am finding it almost painful to read. You would have to be a die-hard star wars fan to appreciate this.
The problem I have is the way in which this is written, its almost juvenile in its style. The authors use of language is lamentable. Apparently one pages through a book, not leaf, he also has issues distinguishing between words like ravish and ravage. That this wasnt even spotted by the editor is a clear sign of the amateur way in which this is written and produced.
I have to say from what I have read so far I agree with robccld, this is not Revan from KOTOR. If I am honest I shouldnt have expected anything more from a Star Wars novel.

This book was a massive dissapointment. The book should be called SCOURGE because he is the predominant figure in the novel, ironically his is the only character I found interesting. Raven is hard to read and lacks in so many areas. other reviews seem to follow this theme so I will not draw out my conclusion. Safe to say is unbelievable that Drew Karpshyn wrote this and what i feel is the one of the best novels I have read, Darth Bane path of destruction!. In my eyes he has gone from hero to zero!

First off, Drew Karpshyn is a great addition to the Star Wars universe. It's evident in his best works, KOTOR and the first Darth Bane novel, and in, what I think is, his worst - Revan. It's obvious he enjoys prowling through the GFFA, whether it's philosophizing on the nature of the force or going into the 'faster, more intense!'-nature of the Star Wars action.

The biggest problem that this book has is, as others have mentioned, that it's a marketing tool to promote the MMO. The focus is almost entirely on setting up that world; instead of continuing the one that KotoR built.

When KOTOR II revealed that Revan had left the known universe to look for some mysterious threat. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who instantly envisioned epic adventures that we would/could be taken on in KOTOR III (or as was revealed, this novel). Instead, Revan basically gets knocked out by the first people he encounters and.... Enter the MMO world. There's a quest that he and Canderous go on which, while entertaining, wasn't that necessary - Canderous told us the most important part in KOTOR II already. It honestly felt to me that the only reason Canderous got so much attention, over Carth/HK/or ANY of the other sidekicks Revan and the Exile had, was because, again, the bounty hunters have to be promoted for the MMO.

Now that I think of it, the Exile doesn't even mention any of the KOTOR II partners. Nor does she really reflect on her encounters with Kreia, Nihilus, Sion. Which makes sense only if you think that those characters would detract from the villains in this book - which they would. The betrayals/treason that the Sith go through is virtually the same as what happened between Kreia and her apprentices - Nihilus, in particular, seems like the prototype of the Sith Emperor.
