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.

    "Great book but only connected to Mass Effect 1."

    It was nice getting back into the Mass Effect universe but honestly made me hungry for a new book in the new story line.

    "Wasn't to shabby"

    I love the narrator of this book, he did an amazing job with all of the Gears of War books and he really brings the story alive. Compared to Gears of War the story of Mass Effect is a little harder to follow but it was still a good listen!

    "Good read"

    Can safely and happily recommend. Lots of back story bits for supporting characters in the games. Slow at times but good. The narrator is no Matt Mercer but he does a good job.

    "Die hard ME fan: Great voice acting and back story"

    I cannot stress how much David Colacci (the voice actor) reminded me of the voice behind the index entries of the ME series. It made me feel like I was back in the ME universe within the first 10 seconds. (Could almost hear the "spectre induction" soundtrack at the back of my mind)

    The back and forth between the POVs of various characters was well paced, and gave the plot a sense of much needed urgency. Disparate sections and characters of the story all came together around the half way point in a satisfying way.

    Absolutely LOVED a particular chapter focusing solely on the intricacies of space politics and the mind games played out between the human ambassador and the councillors. Honestly it was what made the original ME game great and I get a strong vibe of that special sauce in this book. This of all things made the book feel canonical.

    The only thing I wished Revelation could've fleshed out more is the relationship between Anderson and Saren. In the game Anderson made it seem as if they had a long history between them when it was really only that one mission together. But this minor frustration is nothing to write home about compared to all the things this book did right.

    "Good Lore for Fans of the Series"
    Would you listen to Mass Effect again? Why?

    Eh. Probably not. It's a good story but not overly complex or surprising


    Did David Colacci do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yeah, Most of the Characters are different enough in personality that even Drew Karpyshyn has a tough time messing them up.

    "Great for sci-fi fans"

    The story kept you wanting to know what happened next. I felt like I was in the universe of mass effect itself. Characters are interesting and fleshed out and the ending gave me Goosebumps. I only wished i was more invested in the characters but I would definitely recommend it.

    Story
    "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.
