Publisher's Summary

For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy's fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight alongside a slew of mysteriously docile criminals -- and a few dubious military leaders. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he's really fighting for.
For the first time ever, StarCraft enthusiasts will learn the origins of the enduring friendship between the young upstart Jim Raynor and the streetwise soldier Tychus Findlay. Watch as they battle on the front lines of a fierce interplanetary war and bear witness to the Confederacy's rank corruption - corruption so reprehensible that it rains immeasurable death and destruction upon the government's own people.

Starcraft lovers rejoice

I have read many of the current Starcraft books out there today, but none of them compare to this. It has action, love, Marnies, and able to follow the beginnings of Jim Raynor. Whats better is that the store talks about the Trade Guild wars that has been talked about and how some of the beginnings of the units that we love in the game. The voice acting is pretty good I was able to tell how was talking and even the actor Neil Kaplan plays the voice of Tychus Findlay in Starcraft 2 so that it me makes the book even better is hearing the real voice of the main character speaking. As a last note if you want a good solid backstory to the game you love the get this book asap. Do you scan me.

P.S.(you'll get that later)

Competent, but Pedestrian

The title of this review kind of says it all. The narrative moves at a decent pace and the story itself is a decent story. And like any good product based on existing product, there are plenty of references to the source material that are inserted tastefully.

The problem is that it's all kind of your standard stuff. The various initial stories eventually cross with one another. There are main plots and subplots and it all wraps up nicely in the end. And it even explains a lot when you return to the original game that it's based off of.

Basically, it begins, it chugs along, and 12 hours later it ends.

I would say the best part of the entire package was the voice actor, who was great.
