I normally do not read MMO novels but I made an exception for SWTOR. The lore behind The Old Republic era established by KOTOR and SWTOR are absolutely fantastic. To be completely honest, I think I actually enjoy the Old Republic storylines more than the timeline of the movies themselves.

The new Revan novel does an excellent job of telling the story of everything that happened after KOTOR. The story eventually ties all the loose ends and brings the reader right up to the timeline of the SWTOR MMO. I highly recommend the novel if you are big fan of KOTOR, even if you don't end up playing the SWTOR MMO.

I've read all the TOR books, and I was impressed with them. Fatal Alliance is more like what the game presents to the player - as the player is a humble player in the galaxy's wars yet important. Decieved and Revan both delve into the high and mighty machinations of the time. I would have to say Decieved was my favorite - at least the parts involving Darth Malgus - I like what they did with his character. The thing books do for me is get me exited to play - and I imagine thats what they are for.

Additionally, "The Empyrean Age" Was surprisingly good out of CCP and Eve. I always loved the lore of that game - and the book, being rather length, didn't make me bored at any point. I would recommend it.

And to address other people's posts, I would -never- go into a game book expecting Hemmingway. It is what amounts to 30s "Pulp Fiction." It is 100% for fun.

I started Fatal Alliance recently, and I'm suspicious I'm not the only one. It was $8 on the Kindle, even though it is out in paperback (also priced $8).

I don't normally, but I did read the EVE novels. They were written very well.

No. Unless you're talking about the ones they are based on which I might have read before there was a game based on them, or, indeed MMOs, or actually even computers. Like Lord of the Rings. Otherwise. No.
