3.0 out of 5 stars More Mass Effect!!! But... 24 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first volume of "Mass Effect: Foundation" is unfortunately a disappointment. Its soulless and feels more like exploitation of the brand than a "real" effort in expanding the universe and producing a meaningful story.
The stories follow Rasa, a "Cerberus" operative who, to avoid spoilers, you may also know from the "Citadel" DLC from "Mass Effect 3". The first story is sort of an "origin" of Rasa, and while somewhat interesting, it falls a bit flat because the plot is predictable and the story has no real importance to the game's story arc. Rasa is never really developed in any way beyond this first story and since her appearance in the DLC also gave her little personality, she is more of an "empty" avatar through which the reader experiences some key moments in the ME trilogy. What I enjoyed more in this volume was how it was deeply rooted in the original game, for me, still my favorite. The second story, and the best, is about Wrex and his "hit" on Fist. There's lots of fun here. Wrex is wonderfully written, perfectly matching his in game character, there are some great lines and there's some effort in providing an interesting and different insight into a situation that comes to an end in the game we love.
The third story deals with Ashley Williams and the battle on Eden Prime that claimed her entire platoon. This story had the most potential, since its the exact moment before the first game begins, a key event in the trilogy but unfortunately its mostly wasted. Ashley was never the most compelling character and the spotlight here does nothing for her.

4.0 out of 5 stars foundation 17 Mar. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good addition to the storyline and helps fill in a few gaps. Shows where a baddie from the citadel dlc originated from too. Was hoping to be a carry on of the story after the ending of mass effect 3 but any addition to the story is always welcome. Only issue is the length of the story. can be read through fairly quickly

5.0 out of 5 stars This book generates my Mass Effect field. 23 Jan. 2015

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A must read for any Mass Effect buff. Foundation effortlessly covers three intertwining stories each with ramifications which influence some of the bigger plot points from the first game. Although still an optional read, the blanks which are filled in by this tale are brilliant. Truely a pleasure to read.
