Hello all.

I would love to start reading some of the novels that delve deeper into the KOTOR storylines. Maybe even some of the SW lore predating and succeeding this time frame. but im not really familiar with all the novels made.

Could anyone give some tips as to which novels to look into, some good authors, and some of their favorite reads as a good place to start for a newcomer to them?

Thank you.

The Revan novel will be a good choice.

Revan, and Knight Errant would be two I suggest you start with. I also recommend the Bane trilogy which takes place 1.000years before Ep.4

I highly recommend the Darth Bane Trilogy. Drew is an amazing writer, and it helps connect the actions of Revan with the more modern Star Wars era with the creation of Bane's legacy.

In all honesty it depends on how discerning of a reader you are. If you're just looking for more story about SWTOR I'd recommend sifting through your codex. If you're looking for some nice, cheap entertainment without too critical of a literary bend then the other TOR books would be good, bane trilogy + the malgus book. One of the most entertaining books you'll read by leaps and miles will be the one about Darth Plageuis, though it might not stimulate your TOR addiction as its a bit far in the future.

I will include this very important caveat; if you are a regular reader of pretty well written novels and are hoping for high quality literature, steer clear of a majority of the star wars books. there are a few diamonds in the rough, so-to-speak, but for the most part people writing in star wars are there because the IP guarantees a decent sales figure, such as mister Karpyshyn.

You can find the Revan book in audio form on youtube.

I dont usually listen books but it was pretty cool to play it while i was doing warzones.
