Publisher's Summary

They slept for hundreds of years, dreaming of a new home in the Andromeda galaxy. When finally they awake, their dreams of peace are shattered. These colonists - turian, salarian, asari, human, and more - face an uncharted galaxy and threats beyond understanding.
The Nexus is the core from which the colonists will explore their new home. Yet even before the arks arrive, the massive space station sustains critical damage. The entire mission is placed in jeopardy, and security director Sloane Kelly must reassert order while racing to identify the nature of the threat that faces them.
If she fails, the Andromeda Initiative could crumble.

Five Star Review But Be Warned

What made the experience of listening to Mass Effect™ Andromeda: Nexus Uprising the most enjoyable?

The writing and the performance is top notch. The fact that we meet these characters while playing Mass Effect Andromeda adds to it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sloane Kelly.

Have you listened to any of Fryda Wolff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

It compares well. I think she did the most recent Brett Battles book but am not sure.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, ideally BEFORE playing Mass Effect Andromeda

Any additional comments?

This book gets five stars from me because it's the highest caliber writing and performance. Here the thing it's a prequel for Mass Effect Andromeda the video game. It's the missing backstory to the game that we hear about as we meet the characters in this book but don't get to see play out because it happens in the past.

The warning in my title refers to the fact that at the end of the novel it has the feel of setting up a future series of books. The problem with that is that those books will never be published as the story will continue and conclude in the video game Mass Effect Andromeda and perhaps forthcoming DLC. Worse the all of the main characters here are seen from the point of view of Ryder and have very limited screen time in the video game. As long as you are okay with all that, and I was, you're in for a very good time with this one.

Engaging

Fryda Wolfe has excellent pace and inflection in her voice. This book really fills in some gaps in the game's narrative and makes me care about the characters. I'm genuinely looking forward to diving deeper into this new galaxy.

Must read if you've played the game

Sloane, addison, tann, you understand all that happened before the game starts. Makes me want to play it through again and maybe make some different decisions.

Gave a great insight into what happened on the Nexus

I could not stop listening to it even when I only had 5 minutes headphones were on. I felt like i was on the Nexus with them. I am currently playing the game and wow did it open my eyes to what was going on and how I'm going to play the game. Great job by reader too.

Great backstory to the Nexus

Great backstory to the nexus. In depth look at how the situation on the Nexus is how it is and insight into characters and their personalities. When i play Andromeda again my opinions on people will be different in a good way. This has me exited about playing Andromeda again. Fryda Wolff does a fantastic job at reading and completely draws you in. I was absorbed the whole time and loved the story. Highly recommended for any Mass Effect and Mass Effect Andromeda fan.
