The story was presented in a well-thought and evenly divided space between past and present, and unlike Fire and Ice deals with a more-or-less common vet.
Out of the other books I've read thus far, this one in particular focuses less on the Argon War and the Federation, and more on the soldiers and the huge race-schism that is heavily implied-in game. The main character is very easy to relate to, even if he's not necessarily a saint, and you sympathize with him and his situation.
Bridget McKenna breathes life into the often forgotten NPCs that make up the world of Arborea, which I thought would have been very difficult to do; but she's managed to make it run smoothly, keeping in-game elements, and in-game humor along with it.
It's a good, short read, and definitely worth the ninety-nine cents I forked over.
While good the story occasionally feels a little showy when the main's characters internal thoughts seem to take an almost-rebel twenty year old's stance and tone, which seems out of character for who the soldier was made out to be. His back story also didn't play much into the main story but some ends were tied up by the finish and seemed to work fairly well. TERA fans might be a little disappointed to find that while it's located in the series' world, it doesn't bring out much of the lore or history of the game.
Your time won't be wasted reading this, and it is certainly good, minus the drawbacks. Well worth more than the tiny price it goes for, your time won't be wasted, even with the small nit-picks. Definitely my favorite of the three stories written about TERA.
I only had 2 complaints with it that I could think of. Firstly, I felt like it could have been a little darker being that the game is rated mature. For example, there are some events towards the middle of the story that are sort of glossed over that really could have been better if the time was taken to add some grit and detail to them. And secondly there's really nothing in it that adds to the lore that's already there from the game.
It might be a little hard to follow at times if you haven't played the game but, all in all, it's a still a pretty good story.
