Product Description

Product Description

Everyone already knows that. But the General of an army of Psycho Soldiers takes on this planetary hell headfirst, planning to enslave all of the Borderlands. And that General . . . is a Goddess. The General Goddess, Gynella, is a cunning maniac who uses the dark science of the vile Dr. Vialle to control a growing army of bandits and malcontents. Only four people stand in Gynella’s way.

Roland. Mordecai. Brick. And . . . Daphne.

Daphne?! Better known as Kuller the Killer, she was once the galaxy’s most effective assassin for organized crime—until her forced retirement on this abandoned wasteland of a world. Roland is one of the toughest fighters in the Borderlands, and Mordecai is the best shot in four solar systems—all the two really want is to get to the Crystalisks, harvest some Eridium, get rich, and leave the planet for the nearest intergalactic party. But there are nightmarish creatures to deal with: Varkids and Skags and Threshers. Worse, Gynella is still in their way. Brick—a pile of walking muscle who lives to smash his enemies, could be their ally or their enemy . . . but you’d definitely rather have him on your side. As for Daphne Kuller? Don't make her mad. Just . . . don’t.

If you want to hear about the whole thing, take a ride on the bus to Fyrestone with Marcus. Because Marcus has a tale to tell you . . . an untold story of the Borderlands.

3.0 out of 5 stars One for Borderlands fans 20 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Borderlands: Unconquered by John Shirley takes the main characters from the immensely popular Borderlands video game and brings their exploits to the page. Looking mainly at Roland and Mordecai, Unconquered throws everything into the mix that you'd expect after playing the source material. Guns, violence, guns, psychotic enemies, guns, loot, and guns. Oh, and did I mention guns?

Lets be honest, the only reason to read Borderlands: Unconquered is if you're a fan of the game, otherwise there is little here that you'd care for. Unconquered reads as a side mission from the game with perhaps a little less of the dark humour I expected. The characters are fine, the plot okay, and the resolution not entirely unexpected. It's enjoyable, but this one won't win any awards, nor bring new fans to the franchise. What it does, it does well, though it's strictly for those familiar with Borderlands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get 'Em, Blood! 28 Dec 2012
By Michael
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I haven't had a chance to read this yet as it was a present for someone else, although I'm sure I will eventually. The book looks good however, and is thicker than I expected it to be, so is obviously not just a short tale that has been quickly threw together. From the cover I expected it to be centered around Mordecai, although from reading the back of the book it suggests otherwise. The order was sent to a collect+ address even though it was not eligible and subsequently went missing, but Amazon were quick to resolve this, sending out my items again once not received, free of charge and next day delivery, so I am very pleased with the service too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bang Bang Shrug 24 Nov 2012
By Frank J. Rion - Published on Amazon.com

Though it is a fair representation of the nature of Pandora, Unconquered is a written representation of a FPS. If you are looking for that I'd suggest just ploaying the game. Just not as engaging as Borderlands #1 as it focuses on the main characters from the first game, who will aleways survive, no matter what perils they face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to the Universe 12 Mar 2014
By XStreamGamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
All in all, a FANTASTIC read. If Im right, I think this takes place after Borderlands 1 and before 2. This book gives a great feeling of just how visceral Pandora is. From ripping out hearts to drowning an enemy in a puddle of waste- this book definitely tells a different story of the world than the toned down version the games had. The new main characters- Daphne and Gynella are more than worthy of the universe. If you thought Jack was a cruel guy, Gynella is right there with him, maybe even colder. As for Daphne, I personally wish she got more focus time. Her backstory is so rich she deserves her own book, but they tell deep background on both and do a good job of explaining why they each came to Pandora. The prologue and epilogue are a bit cheesy but they were done purely as fan service, other than that the book is perfect. Even if you havent read The Fallen, this book is a standalone title- you wont miss out on anything but a few (2-3) vague references; It also works well as an intro to the Universe, even if you havent played the games.
