In the books you see what happened to make him that way.

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.

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.

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.

A great continuation of the B5 storyline. Its history of the Psicorp is a wonderful look at what prejudice and fear can make people do for what they think are the best of reasons. There's a scene in 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' where the men pursuing Josey are arguing whether going after him is worth it, and when hunting former Confederate soldiers should stop and the Captain of the group answers 'There ain't no end to doing right.' Nearby, an old woman laughs at the listeners dismay seeing them finally recognize the devil's bargain they had made in taking part in this hunt. This book is a lot like that bit of skepticism one should keep for those bent on doing right. Its only drawback is in the third act with Bester. We only have hints of the evils that went on between the creation of the Psicorp and the war that put an end to the Corp. I would have liked more on that so one could have a better idea of why Bester is a hunted man. Viewers of B5 can get a fuller picture by looking back at the episodes with Bester and the Corp, but readers without that background can feel a bit left in the dark.
