Any good books in the SWTOR era?

Hi all,

Awhile back I read the Thrawn books in the post movie era and I really enjoyed them. Now that I am playing this, I am wondering if there are any good books for this era?

I almost got the Revan book off amazon but it looked pretty bad from the ratings and even on here it sounds like I don't want to read that ending =p

Are there any others?

Thanks !

There's another book out called Fatal Alliance, it's not too bad. Then you've got those graphic novels out too so there is a little bit of Old Republic literature available.

I've heard of a series of Star Wars books called 'Lost Tribe of The Sith' also which is supposedly around the Old Republic period..

Revan and Deceived are both great. Fatal Alliance was crap.

As Stoneywas mentions, there are also three comic series set in the SWTOR timeframe. The first two can be read here on the official website (or purchased in trade paperback form); the third - The Lost Suns - will be published in TPB in late April. If you want to step back to 10 years prior to KOTOR I, there was a comic series entitled Knights of the Old Republic. If you want to step back farther than that, pick up Tales of the Jedi.

Not exactly, no. Lost Tribe of the Sith begins during the Great Hyperspace War, which was depicted in Tales of the Jedi - a series that spanned 5000 BBY to 3986 BBY, roughly 30 years prior to KOTOR I.

After that early time setting, Lost Tribe starts jumping around. It goes from the 5000 BBY timeframe to 4985 in book 3, to 4975 in book 4, to 3960 in books 5 and 6, to 3900 in book 7, and to between 3000 and 1032 BBY in book 8. The timeframe for the final novella is unknown until the collected version is published (it's being included exclusively as part of the paperback), but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it jumps to the "current" timeframe of the EU - 44 ABY.

All that aside, however, Lost Tribe is pretty bad, even for free.
