Flashpoint continues where the Wings of Liberty campaign left off, Raynor carrying the partly humanized Sarah Kerrigan out of a cave on Char. Initially I wanted to read this before Heart of the Swarm.

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.

Back in the late 1990's I discovered a PC game called Starcraft that I loved from the moment I installed it. Since then it has become a video game franchise that has continually entertained me although I never seemed to find the time to read any of the related novels. However, as the next game in the series was being released today I decided that I would read Christie Golden's novel entitled "Flashpoint" which serves as a link between the newly released game and its predecessor. I probably did this mainly because I had to find some way to calm my anticipation that was running in overdrive.

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.
