Having been a fan of B5 growing up I had to purchase the books. I loathed Bester in the show but do to the books now wish that I could have seen him more. The trilogy does a great job at showing the behind-the-scenes dealings and answering a few questions. They are my favorites of the B5 books and can only recommend to read them.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A. Schneider on September 6, 2005
Format: Hardcover
The first book in the series could get a little boring for some readers as it deals solely with the background and history of the organization, the Psi Corps in Babylon 5. Other than that I'd say the series was a success!

The second book features Al Bester (the loved Psi Cop from the popular hit series, Babylon 5) starting off his adventures as a young boy instead of the policy enforcing, back stabbing villain in the Babylon 5 series. Keyes does a downright amazing job of fleshing out the character of Al Bester. The only complaint is that Keyes skips portions of Bester's life midway through the book... then again though, it doesn't matter since what he has to present is just as good (if not better than) Bester's childhood.

Rich with details and imagery one wouldn't expect from a book made from a television series, Bester's childhood story and background behind why he thinks the way he does as an adult is matched only by the beauty of the last and final book. Many reviewers have said that this was their least favorite book but in my opinion it was just as beautiful as the second (his childhood meets what he's become and the convictions he must live with surrounded by the beauty of Paris, nothing can beat that).

Anyhow, great series - I certainly hope more people post their previous reviews for the independent books here instead showing their support for a series well-done.

Format: Hardcover
In the television series Bester is a cold-hearted man devoted to one thing and only one thing; his Corps. In the books you see what happened to make him that way. The author took a villain and without betraying the nature of the character showed how he became the way he did. The book shows the price trying to control everything around you and answers lots of questions left unanswered in the Television series.

This is definitely a must read for Babylon 5 fans.

Good story line (by JMS, so that's no surprise). The page-to-page writing is also very good. The limitation is that the first 2/3 of the book is (necessarily) about the minor characters leading up to Al Bester. It's well-done, but I had hoped to read more about the telepath wars, the life of Lyta Alexander, and other things more closely tied to the arc of Babylon 5. Still, it's worth reading for the sake of completeness.

I love the whole Babylon 5 series and was skeptical that a book would fit in but this does and I enjoyed it very much.
