3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Revan I remember, November 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Revan (Star Wars: The Old Republic, Vol. 3) (Hardcover)
Revan. A character that made a lasting impact on me when I was a child. Knights of the Old Republic (video game) was every bit as good as any
book I have ever read and the characters are every bit as memorable as anything I have ever read, watched, or played. With Star Wars: The Old Republic
on the horizon, I was very excited when the book "Revan" was released. Finally, I get to see what happened to the hero of the Republic!

From the start I realized that this book was hastily done and with barely any regards to how the characters actually were in the video game. Revan is not
portrayed as a charismatic bad-ass Jedi that has seen both sides, in this book he is portrayed as a wimp that can't figure out what happened in his past.

Most of the book follows Lord Scourge, a Sith Lord that is every bit whiny 12 year old as he is turncoat. I didn't buy this book to read about a Sith Lord named
Scourge, but that is what you get.

The story is stretched thin and while cohesive it is flat and boring. This does not have the spark that the Darth Bane series had. It is not "Jedi Academy" bad, but
it isn't even close to licking the heels of the Darth Bane Trilogy.

In retrospect this book does not live up to KOTOR or even Drew's past achievements and for this being one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe is nothing
less than a tragedy.
