Publisher's Summary

Every advanced society in the galaxy relies on the technology of the Protheans, an ancient species that vanished 50,000 years ago. After discovering a cache of Prothean technology on Mars in 2148, humanity is spreading to the stars---the newest interstellar species, struggling to carve out its place in the greater galactic community.

On the edge of colonized space, ship commander and Alliance war hero David Anderson investigates the remains of a top secret military research station---smoking ruins littered with bodies and unanswered questions. Who attacked this post, and for what purpose? And where is Kahlee Sanders, the young scientist who mysteriously vanished from the base hours before her colleagues were slaughtered?

Sanders is now the prime suspect, but finding her creates more problems for Anderson than it solves. Partnered with a rogue alien agent he can't trust, and pursued by an assassin he can't escape, Anderson battles impossible odds on uncharted worlds to uncover a sinister conspiracy...one he won't live to tell about. Or so the enemy thinks.

    "Enjoyable even if it dose little to add anything"

    To start with is like to say that this book is a solid read. The story is well written and the narrator dose excellent work to really draw you into the developing drama. That aside I do admit to a small bit of disappointment that the book didn't do much to add to the overall universe. Even so I want to stress that it is really a minor complaint at best.

    "Fun for a Mass Effect fan"

    I've played all three Mass Effect games multiple times and I'm a big fan of its lore and universe. I'm also a fan of science fiction action, which this mostly consists of. It's not a perfect book, but if you're like me you'll probably enjoy it.

    This book was released in early 2007 and is often described as a "prequel" to the first Mass Effect game, but the book actually came out several months beforehand. I can't imagine many people read it then because while it does a good job of explaining the universe and technology to the point that it's still understandable, the visuals leave some to be desired if you haven't already seen the races and sites described. And while the story and action are fun, it really helps if you already know what's going on and can get that extra stuff out of it.

    I could go more into the story, but honestly if you're still reading this, you'll probably get enough enjoyment to make it worth your time and money/credit. It's a book about Mass Effect by the primary writer of Mass Effect. It features a few Mass Effect characters and many Mass Effect races, but no morality choices or graphics. It some longer infodumps (many of which are unnecessary to the players of the game), but I still enjoyed them. David Colacci does a decent job in terms of voices - nothing to write home about, but not distracting either.

    "Outstanding"

    Great way to go deeper into the characters of the mass effect video games Drew Karpyshyn is a master at what he does the his history proves it. Even if you ate not familiar with the mass effect world this is still a great book. Ive listen to it 4 times and i keep coming back to this book when im trying to save credits. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    "Mass Effect?"

    I love the game, it's rich with world building. This book isn't even close, just average. Had the writer went in and delved more into the codex the game has to offer maybe he could have do a better job.

    "Enjoyable story, great addition to the Mass Effect universe"

    Lots of cool character moments for players in ME 1 that didn't get enough development in the original game.

    "Great prequel story to the first game"

    This book fleshes out the backstory for both Capt Anderson and Saren, focusing on the events leading up to and including the incident mentioned in the first game where Anderson was being considered for Spectre status.

    My only criticism would be that they didn't spend more time on the First Contact War.

    "Fills Some Gaps Prior to First Mass Effect Game"

    I love the Mass Effect universe. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through all the games and when I saw there are Mass Effect books, I immediately spent Audible credits. "Shut up and take my money, Audible!" So, about the book itself, there was a very brief plot build-up about the First Contact War in the very beginning of the book, which I got super excited about. I thought "Oh, man! How cool! A war novel about the First Contact War!" but I was wrong. After this brief mention the rest of this book is pretty much all about how Saren and Anderson met and what led Saren to become a Reaper agent. I mean, I really enjoyed this book, and I bought the other two consecutive ones in the series. There's some really cool character development you see here that you would have never been able to see in the games. If you are a real Mass Effect fan you would happily give your money to Audible (or get these books from the library) and listen/read the entire series.

    "Mass Effect fan's dream of a back story"

    Love it, the story is very thought out and had me at the edge of my seat. And I loved being surrounded by mass effect lore all over again.
