5.0 out of 5 stars Starcraft meets Oliver Twist
I found it hard to put this book down, being a fan of the ghosts of Starcraft, this gave me a great insight into more of the lore behind it, as well as one of the more interesting characters of the Starcraft universe.
As a book, it is well written and doesn't have any dry moments, I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering to buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre
As a fan of Blizzard and of such books related to their games i find this one rather mediocre. This story brought to mind the story of Olivir twist, a child alone struggling in a city only to be snatched up by some insane madman. Comparing this book to other Blizzard books i would put this much lower on the list. If your truely intrested in Starcraft then i would...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, 1 May 2008
This review is from: Starcraft: Ghost - Nova (Mass Market Paperback)
As a fan of Blizzard and of such books related to their games i find this one rather mediocre. This story brought to mind the story of Olivir twist, a child alone struggling in a city only to be snatched up by some insane madman. Comparing this book to other Blizzard books i would put this much lower on the list. If your truely intrested in Starcraft then i would recommend reading Liberty's Crusade. This however, is a mild disapointment to the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a game, but one heck of a book!, 27 Feb. 2007

This review is from: Starcraft: Ghost - Nova (Mass Market Paperback)
We all know the tragic truth about the game with the same name. It was in development for the Playstation 2 when the console was very young, and years later, it have changed producers and publishers more times than could possibly be healthy. And in the end, it got cancelled. No, wait, "Put on hold for now."

However, Nova isn't dead. This book takes place a few years before the Brood War, when November Annabelle Terra, aka Nova, was but a fifteen year old girl from one of the richest families on the planet. After a brutal assassination where her entire family was killed, Nova is on the run. Everyone is after her, and her only surviving family member things she's dead.

Although I had doubts about this book (especially since the game was... questionable), it turns out to be the best book in the entire series. It doesn't follow the story of the game, but is focused 100% on Nova's early years instead. It is very well written, quite entertaining and a fine clue as what we can look forward to in the future.

If you like StarCraft, or sci-fi in general, I highly recommend this book to everyone. It's almost perfect.
