5.0 out of 5 stars The story of how the Protoss came to be., May 22, 2007
This book takes place after the story of Shadow's of Xel Naga. Thankfully, the first part of it recaps what happened in Shadow's of Xel Naga so there is now no more need to read that book that many consider to be the worst in the Starcraft series.

You follow the story of Jake Ramsey who is called by Valerian Mengsk (son of Arturo Mengsk) to take part in a "wonderful" discovery.

The story starts off rather suspenseful and then changes gears as Jake Ramsey, due to what he discovered in the cave, now starts to relieve the Protoss history. We discover just how they all became "One."

A great fast paced story that has a couple of slow points here and there but is for the most part a thrilling read. It is over 300 pages in length and worth checking out. I can't wait to read part 2 "Shadow Hunters" and 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, April 20, 2007
I found this book to be exciting all the way through and I was unable to put it down. I like how the author ties in the various scenes of the game into this book and I found that it compliments the game very well. Having just gone through the single player campain again before reading this book, I was able to recall the various scenes this book references and finally put the pieces together on how certain conflicts played out and how dialogue took place in the game. In the game, you are lead to believe that all dialogue took place in a "command" center so to speak but it doesn't really make sense. Now, that same dialogue comes to life on the battlefield and things start to make more sense.

A fun read and worth checking out and a great addition to the Starcraft universe.
