The novel is a solid summer read. In true prequel form you will be introduced to most of the characters that will reappear in the upcoming movie. There is nothing more that I hate than reading a novel that has incredibly loose connections to the characters/events of the forthcoming book/movie. This is not one of those books. Prominent characters are featured, to include John Connor, Kate Connor, Kyle Reese and his childhood friend Star, and the A-1 pilot Blair Williams. All characters listed are featured in this novel and will be featured in the upcoming movie.
It is an intense and fascinating novel penned by Timothy Zahn, a bestselling author known primarily for his Star Wars novels. Zahn is a fabulous writer and tells an incredible story about the Resistance's fight against Skynet in Los Angeles. The setting is a little more than 10 years after Judgment Day; John and Kate Connor have formed the Resistance fighting against T-1s (seen in Terminator 3), T-600s (prototype of the widely known T-800 model, aka the Schwarzenegger model) and Hunter Killers, or flying machines. You will also meet a young Kyle Reese and his friend Star in the days before they join the Resistance.
This book is an entertaining read and brilliantly sets the stage for Terminator: Salvation. Sit back and enjoy a sci-fi post-apocalyptic novel told by one of the best sci-fi authors around. You won't be disappointed!
We get introduced to all the primary characters in the film, John and Kate Connor, Barnes and Blair, a young Kyle Reese.
Two threads here: Connor's group has a plan to take a staging area for Skynet intact and a building that had been surviving in the ruins for years is about to be assaulted by a band of Terminators. Hundreds of men, women, and children. Connor tries to help them as well.
Nicely addition to the Terminator series.
