Really good read specially for fans of the series!
on 21 June 2013
I really enjoyed this book and found it was a great read, I think thats fans of the series will particulary enjoy it. It is a little slow burning to begin with, setting the scene, introducing the 2 brothers Jensei and Istvan and depictng the events leading them up to planet Aspera, I would say for around 70% of the book there isn't really much action ( and zero necromorphs) However the last 30% is well worth reading for with some fantastic scene's and gory descriptions. The book itself will mainly appeal to fans of the games/series with lots of references and nods to the games litered throughout (such as mentioned Aegis VIII, Soverin Colonies ship etc) but I also think it has strong appeal to people unfamiliar to the series, The story itself is rather a self contained story set in the dead space universe, loosly connected to other editions in the series, but essentially it doesn't follow on the story from any other of the games / books / comics in the series so it won't be hard for newcomers to follow. One small flaw I did notice near the beginning a few names were typed in correctly but only a small thing really :) all in all a great read.
