I loved every page and bought many more books written by him along with this series primarily due to his writing. Please purchase this book if you would like to know more about Starcraft and need a great Sunday afternoon to kill.
I must warn you, once you start you will not put it down until you are done.
**EXCELLENT READ, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**
Knowing more about the genius that is Mengsk: 100/5
Most of the story is quick and very energetic a new story isn't really told but some important background information is filled in and various new secondary characters are introduced. Of these characters I am most impressed with Angus Mengsk father of Arcturus and grandfather of Valerian.
However as with all "lets find in the background" books there are several problems that I have with the story specifically in the rather convenient way that Arcturus shifts gears from confederation marine to prospector to revolutionary. All Starcraft fans know that those shifts had to be made for the sake of the overall storyline but you have to suspend your disbelief for much of it.
Overall-Solid, does what it sets out to do.
The book contains a variety of stories which show the reader how and why Mengsk became the man who would be Emperor.
Also included are references to (his son) Valerian's upbringing by his mother, Juliana Pasteur, and training he received from Master Miyamoto, the same man who trained Arcturus Mengsk in the martial arts.
The really eerie thing about the book is how relevant it is to current events in the real world, but, as they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

The story was okay, but it didn't have as much action or witty banter as I'd like and there was barely even a mention of the Protoss or Zerg.Published 15 months ago by D. Collier
Well it's the missing piece that explains more thoroughly, where Valerian comes from. That is his mother, the fact that noone realy knows about him, and so on. Read morePublished 22 months ago by nomineZERO
