4.0 out of 5 stars End of the twilight, 4 Jan 2010
P. Korgan "Shas'O" (Finland) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dark Templar: Twilight Bk. 3 (Starcraft) (Mass Market Paperback)
Twilight is the third and final novel in the Dark Templar trilogy written by Christie Golden. The first two novels, Firstborn and Shadow Hunters, were rich on StarCraft lore. They particularly enhanced the Protoss' way of life, their beliefs, much of the Protoss caste system and even delved deep into the history of said race. Third book, Twilight, concentrates more around the Protoss (and of course Jacob and Rosemary) than the previous two. Many known StarCraft characters make their appearance in this book, including Zeratul and Artanis, who are well known in the StarCraft's history.

Jacob's struggle for survival, with Zamara literally in his mind becomes more obvious, as the time is running out for both of them. They either have to find a cure/solution or they will both perish. Conflicts arise, opinions are spoken. New villains are introduced. Twilight is not as strong novel as the previous ones, mainly because it lacks "adventure" feel. Whereas first two were more or less exploring around space and finding solution, Twilight is more about the solution itself. It does have its own great moments though. And as a whole is a good ending to the Dark Templar trilogy. If you've read the two previous ones, this is a must read, since what happens to Zamara and Jacob will be resolved.

Twilight is also a nice lowdown to soon-to-be-in-stores StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty. Many of the topics that will be brought up in the upcoming PC sequel, are already introduced in this trilogy and they will continue to add the weight to the overall tone of the game itself. As a stand-alone Sci-fi trilogy, Dark Templar saga is an intriguing peek into the Protoss' past, present and future which is filled with conflicts. Aiur Protoss and the Dark Templar do not forgive each other easily. Some of the characters are a bit one-dimensional for the first-time readers, since they're covered in the StarCraft and Brood War -expansion.

Dark Templar trilogy is a good read and recommended especially to the Blizzard and StarCraft fans. It has a solid plot, few revelations along its way, even a couple of surprises that were not known before. It is a lore heavy on Protoss and their culture as a whole.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid conclusion to a fantastic trilogy, 9 April 2011
This review is from: Dark Templar: Twilight Bk. 3 (Starcraft) (Mass Market Paperback)
Unlike the previous two books this story is based more on the present, but there is still some solid lore to be absorbed.
You meet the disenfranchised Prelate Zeratul and the obnoxious leaders of the Protoss clans. Despair and pettiness hinder Jake's search for a cure. This is a solidly written book and is a rich tale with a strong conclusion, there is a distinct shift in tone as this book is not about the richness of protoss history but, like with many of the terran based books, the desperate fight for survival in a hostile universe filled with ever more powerful foes.

A thoroughly entertaining trilogy which enrich the starcraft universe.
