Format: Paperback
Having read all of the Halo novels and enjoyed them, I decided to buy Mass Effect: Revelation from Amazon seeing as I'm really looking forward to the forthcoming video game later this year.

This book initially focuses on establishing the backbone of the universe, explaining and detailing to the reader the situation in the galaxy, mankind's massive technological evolution and it's introduction onto the galactic stage that it shares with many other species. Once the groundwork is laid, it opens up into it's own narrative that concentrates on a few central characters and tells a story which is a small piece of a much larger puzzle.

It's a light and easy read, although it manages to be descriptive and interesting. It's not particularly emotional, although I thought there were some cool moments in it that will very much appease fans of the type of game it's based on.

I would recommend it to anybody who has enjoyed books based on video games before, or to those wishing to get a little bit of insight into BioWare's next massive fictional world. It doesn't take long to read, so it's not a major time investment and it's enjoyable and entertaining while it lasts.

I don't recommend reading the book before finishing the videogame because it will ruin the last plot twist but, if you've just finished it, it gives some explanations about Captain Anderson and Saren's past.
It also gives more of what we already like in the game: the description of the Citadel, the combat sequences, they have the same pace. Specially the first part reminds me of the mission where I had to rescue Liara.
About the writing style, maybe it is not the best or most elegant I've seen in a book, but it works for entertainment.

If you are a fan of Mass Effect games, you are going to love this book. Its a well written story about what happens before the first Mass Effect game, about humanity and their relationship with other species and their integration in the Citadel space. And in the foreground story there is a thrilling adventure with a great sense of mistery that will be cleared through the reading advances.

I cannot do another thing that recommend this book, not only to fans, but to people that like science fiction books. Be aware that the chances that you get hooked up with the story and buy a copy of the Mass Effect game for PC or XBox are too high after reading this book...

This book is an excellent read i found and adds a whole lot more to the existing Mass effect sub-characters and the plots are gripping to say the least, very well written and very much worth a look if you are a big mass effect fan.

ok so i never give out 5 stars as i have yet to read a book that is perfect in every way but saying that this book is pretty darn good.

so additional info Revelation is set about 20 years before the first Mass Effect game and leads into ME1's story giving us some nice lore and background stuff that never comes up in any of the games or is skimmed over as we didn't really need to know about it at the time and while i spotted some of the story coming a mile off it was still a fun read.

if you're a fan of the Mass effect setting then i'd say this is a must read, if you're not a fan of the games i'd still say this stands up well as a close to reality sci fi story.

bottom line ied recommend it to a friend.

This is one of those books that will have you hooked from page one. A very entertaining read and links in with the storyline of the game very well.

Format: Paperback
A perfecly reasonable book. The quality of writing is better than I expected and the story is sufficiently interesting. I did however think that it read like one, short, quest in the Mass Effect game. I think it could have been longer and more complex. Would recommend it.
