An action-packed novel that ushers in a new age of adventure in the critically acclaimed StarCraft series from Blizzard Entertainment.
Award-winning author Timothy Zahn pens the latest chapter in the stunning StarCraft saga, building on the game's rich legacy to create an unforgettable new story.
After nearly a decade of brutal warfare, three mighty factions - the enigmatic Protoss, the savage Zerg, and the Terrans, humanity's descendants in the sector - have entered a cease-fire, but the peace is tenuous at best. When the sudden restoration of an incinerated planet is brought to light, tensions erupt. Neutrality swings back to hostility, and old enemies are accused of developing biological weapons to reignite the bitter conflict.
An expedition of Terran and Protoss soldiers and researchers is deployed to investigate the mysterious Zerg planet and its inhabitants' intentions. But the lush alien landscape is host to other denizens, creatures shrouded in shadow, and should they be unleashed, they will change the fate of the entire galaxy.

This book was written with many technical descriptions for the three races that govern the known galaxy of Starcraft. What it lacks entirely is a love for it. With all the facts within and the immersive depiction written with the very impressive talent of beloved writer, Timothy Zahn, this book was written with that lack of passion and interaction that we've all seen throughout the story in the past.
I recommend this book for those who've never sought out the games and know nothing at all about the StarCraft universe. Timothy Zahn is an incredible writer and does an exemplary job in this book. As a diehard fan, however, I found myself easily distracted and disengaged from this story.
The music was a big distraction from the visualization. I also think that more expansion could have been used to paint a better and more visual picture for the readers and listeners.
Not enough fighting.
I would recommend this book if there was nothing better they had to listen to.
Emperor Mengsk, however I feel every established name in this book acted out of character. I don't think this book showed the true personalities of Artanis, Emperor Valerian, and Zagara.
Don't get your hopes up.
This book was the best blizzard book on audible, however, it was disappointing. It had an interesting plot, however it took too long to carry out. It dragged on for a while with not enough interesting fights. I wish there was more strategic battles in this book. While they did use some of the units we are familiar with in the starcraft universe, it seemed like they didn't employ a lot of their special abilities.
