What this book turned out to be was a part of the story no less amazing than what we get in the actual games. The characters feel real and you can almost watch them grow as the plot advances. The dialogue is well written and the action sequences paint out events before your eyes vivid enough that you can almost see them happen. Christie has a unique writing style, and as an aspiring writer my self, there were plenty of things I would have put to different wording my self, only the book wouldn't have turned out as well as it did.
All in all, this book blew me away and I'm now more than ever looking forward for the next SC2 games, but also the countless other StarCraft books I've missed out on so far.
The plot picks up directly from where the single player campaign in "Starcraft 2 - Wings of Liberty" concluded with Jim Raynor carrying Sarah Kerrigan out of a cave on Char following her transformation back into partly human form. From then on, the reader gets to follow Jim & Sarah as they attempt to firstly flee from Zerg infested Char and then escape the continued machinations of Emperor Arcturus Mengsk who is more determined than ever to ensure their deaths. Of course there are hidden dangers as well, especially as some of those who help them in their journey are after more than just simple gratitude.
The writing and pace seemed tidy and competent which I was happy to see in a video game tie in novel like this one but unfortunately I felt that the plot itself was a bit limited. For example, whilst there are some interesting developments and revelations in the book, they are all rather minor and I can't say that any of them really surprised me. In addition, due to the book needing to tie in with the games there was no real sense of drama or risk as I knew that all the main characters were going to survive.Read more ›
