It's funny, because I'm usually a great fan of Drew Karpyshyn's writing (the Darth Bane books). But it is hard to get into Darth Scourge in this story and Revan and Bastilla Shan begin the story as a domestic couple, not very exciting - though I understand that's what they both want.
I think the story will get better but 56 pages into it is not "doing it" for me.
Revan began separating himself from the Jedi Council who was over-occupied with guarding against the return of the Sith following Exar Kun's depradations.
He disagreed with them ignoring the new Mandalore who continued the war as best as he could. So Revan led a rogue Jedi army against the Mandalorians with the Jedi Malak as his apprentice, but something turned them to the Dark Side and I haven't really found out what as of yet.
Revan added Mandalorian armor to become a lightsaber weilding "Jango Fett."
But the Jedi caught him and erased his memory and he's been living with Bastilla Shan kind of like Hauser and Sharon Stone in Total Recall.
We'll see if it goes anywhere after page 56.
