Synopsis

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.

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!

If we were to sum the book up in one word it would be 'disappointing'...

...the story is a worthy addition to the Star Wars universe and is one of those books that you want to keep picking up until it’s finished.

There wasn’t a whole lot of time spent on deep character moments or wonderful prose. The pacing was brisk. There were some cool, profound moments, but they were brief.

...a huge bag of cotton candy that’s was all yummy and good at first, but just too insubstantial to be satisfying.

Karpyshyn’s writing is excellent, as always, and really draws the reader in. I read through the last half of the book without putting it down.
