Revan: Star Wars Legends (The Old Republic) by Drew Karpyshyn | : Books

As you might have guessed from the rating I gave this book, I really enjoyed it. The thing is that Revan does not actually do much, but his charisma comes off the page. For a warrior Jedi he does not really do very much fighting but inspires other to greatness.

He shows such loyalty in his partners that they are willing to risk everything including their lives. Some of the best passages in the book are the interaction between Rvean and Lord Scourge, the mental chess game they play during Revan’s As you might have guessed from the rating I gave this book, I really enjoyed it. The biggest thing about this book it the repubpic story of the Sith Emperor and his back story.


I have only seen the Sith Emperor mentioned once in the Star Wars: Blood of the Empire v. I am assuming The Next book Star Reva Annihilation Might be a ending to this story Revan’s main Jedi power revaj to absorb energy and redirect it back with some his own power added to it. This ability other Force user with this power were Vader when he absorbs blaster fire into his hand, and the Horrn family most famously Corren Horn Star Wars: I think this a few of the gamers were not happy with this book cos their version of Raven was not the same as the character in the story.

Which is a fair point but this is after the game Raven is older and recovering from essentially a Force brain surgery. I enjoyed the book and a very interested to know the Jedi who would end this emperor. View all 4 comments. Dec 09, Lyn rated it liked it. Still accepted by Lucasfilms for continuity, Revan is a part of the larger Star Wars universe. In that game, and alluded to here, he was a controversial figure, both an extremely powerful Jedi and also a follower of the dark side.

In this setting, the Sith are actually an alien humanoid species with a competing galactic empire from that of the Republic. By opening up licenses for various writers to contribute time and imagination to his creation, he has facilitated a pluralistic fantasy, almost an interactive universal storyline whereby a history of tens of thousands of years, with continuity, can be achieved.

In that Old Testament of the Lord of the Rings, Tolkien had created a vast panorama of vision that enabled his more familiar narration to attain a greater depth than would otherwise have been possible. Here to does Karpyshyn and by extension Lucas produce a greater depth for the Star Wars system. View all 8 comments. Jan 22, Iset rated it liked it Shelves: This is far and away the Star Wars novel that I have most anticipated over the years, and yet You play as the main character, Revan, in a game that was not only fun, masterful and intuitive but which was driven by an absolutely epic plot as compelling and sweeping as any of the three original films.

Instead, fans of Revan and KOTOR awaited the release of this novel to finally reveal to us what happened to our erstwhile protagonist. The choice of Drew Karpyshyn as the author seemed only natural — the author of several other Star Wars novels, Karpyshyn had also worked with BioWare on the computer game that brought Revan to life.


I felt that the character of Revan had all the colour washed out here — grey and pasty — and he felt strangely underpowered.

The less said about the ending, the better.

Not enough information is given about view spoiler [how this emperor accumulated such absurd levels of power, hide spoiler ] so instead of being plausible it felt a like a cheat to me — god mode, anyone? Another contrivance, I felt, was the construct that view spoiler oarpyshyn and Malak only turned to the dark side because they were previously captured by this emperor and he somehow brain-washed them, mind-controlled them and then reavn them back out into the galaxy.

This explanation rpeublic makes Revan a puppet, a victim — and lessens the significance of his actions whilst on the dark side, the burden of responsibility he held for that, and the darkness that forever marked him as a result.

Knights of the Old Republic is a Star Wars role playing game. And my favorite video game. Combining the best of the rpg world with a story driven plot and the freedom to play as a female or male Jedi or Sith.

With a story that rivals most Star Wars movies. If you like Star Wars you’ve got to play this game. Anyway, I became very attached to my Revan. One of my favorite characters Bastards!

One of my favorite characters. When Knights of the Old Republic 2 came out under another company I was pissed.

They ruined my Revan. Took away my end. Although I did learn to love Exile, the player character from this one, almost as much.

This is a review for a book not videogames. What do I think of the book? Reread the first word. But like I enjoy fan fiction. Yeah, I read those. And I choose to ignore it. It was fun to get some backstory on one of my favorite characters. I like knowing now where Revan went when “he” went away. The Sith were interesting.

I like that they have tied Revan to the online game coming. The writing was fine.

I liked Candorous being present. Although I missed the other characters even though most got mentioned. All but one actually The Exile showing up was a complete surprise. And I liked how they split the difference that Revan was male but the Exile was female. I especially hated hated!!!!! If not for the end it may have been more enjoyable. A comment to any gamers out there: I fear what Karpyshyn has in store for Mass Effect 3.
