Spectres provides an excellent insight into the history of Tosh and indeed of the Dominion Ghost Program.

It even gives you a good story on Ghosts in general.

If you are interested in the personality and motivations of Gabriel Tosh and Nova Terra, this is a good character study. If you want a book with a story interesting enough to stand on its own, this is a failure.

The book opens well, with a quite good horror scene. It follows up with a good military engagement featuring Nova. After that, the dramatic tension just evaporates. On Nova's side of the story, we are given vague hints about a mysterious terrorist organisation acting against the Dominion. On Tosh's side of the story, we fairly soon get a detailed look at the character of the various Spectres, him especially. By the time the stories converge in a Spectre attack on a major Dominion facility, we have seen that the Spectres are dysfunctional enough that they won't be able to carry their plan out. When Nova shows up it just gets worse. The author has already had Tosh state that Nova is more powerful than the Spectres, and now the action confirms it. They can't stand against her.

The attack is in the middle of the book. After it follow character scenes until about two-thirds of the book, when the James Bond stereotype begins: Nova gets kidnapped and the Evil Mastermind is unveiled. The flaws in Kenyon's writing really show here. The Evil Mastermind doesn't even get a gloating monologue, his "perfect master plan" is just info-dumped on us in a block of pages. And he STILL withholds the one part of the plan that would impart some horror to it. Fortunately, the action scenes that follow are reasonably good.

Besides the action scenes, the good point of this book is the exploration of the personalities of Nova and Tosh.

A good read that provides an in-depth perspective on Gabriel Tosh, his relationship with Nova and eventual descent into madness.

Well the book pushes more towards the ghost of a chance line in SC2 than the specters. Which is the reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Towards the end of the book, Tosh appears more and more like a nutcase, than the reasonable and powerfull character you see after allying with him.

Otherwise the book is still a very good read.

This ties in to the Tokyopop Ghost Academy series but it undermines some of what happed in Wings of Liberty. It is okay, just off.

This book is full of action and a lot of background stories on many main charactors in the video game. It even gives you a good story on Ghosts in general. I couldn't put this book down and I was so excited to turn the page to see what was going to happen next.
