Publisher's Summary

For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy's fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight alongside a slew of mysteriously docile criminals -- and a few dubious military leaders. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he's really fighting for.

For the first time ever, StarCraft enthusiasts will learn the origins of the enduring friendship between the young upstart Jim Raynor and the streetwise soldier Tychus Findlay. Watch as they battle on the front lines of a fierce interplanetary war and bear witness to the Confederacy's rank corruption - corruption so reprehensible that it rains immeasurable death and destruction upon the government's own people.

    "Starcraft lovers rejoice"

    I have read many of the current Starcraft books out there today, but none of them compare to this. It has action, love, Marnies, and able to follow the beginnings of Jim Raynor. Whats better is that the store talks about the Trade Guild wars that has been talked about and how some of the beginnings of the units that we love in the game. The voice acting is pretty good I was able to tell how was talking and even the actor Neil Kaplan plays the voice of Tychus Findlay in Starcraft 2 so that it me makes the book even better is hearing the real voice of the main character speaking. As a last note if you want a good solid backstory to the game you love the get this book asap. Do you scan me.

    P.S.(you'll get that later)

    "Competent, but Pedestrian"

    The title of this review kind of says it all. The narrative moves at a decent pace and the story itself is a decent story. And like any good product based on existing product, there are plenty of references to the source material that are inserted tastefully.

    The problem is that it's all kind of your standard stuff. The various initial stories eventually cross with one another. There are main plots and subplots and it all wraps up nicely in the end. And it even explains a lot when you return to the original game that it's based off of.

    Basically, it begins, it chugs along, and 12 hours later it ends.

    I would say the best part of the entire package was the voice actor, who was great.

    "Good origins of SCII characters"

    Narrator was spot on, voice in brings life to the story itself. The best for last, I'm still sobbing. Overall satisfying.

    Story
    "No "Pre-Gaming" Required"

    For those of you looking for another great sci-fi war story but haven't played the game, you may be wondering if you need knowledge of the mythos to understand and enjoy this book. The answer is no, the book makes no assumptions about you're fore-knowledge and in fact the story may be better if you have not read the books as this prequel does not spoil anything. This is a story unto-itself not a gimmick or a ride along to the games. The narrator is excellent and the story is exciting, well plotted, and well placed. Their are very few sci-fi books I could recommend more.

    Story
    "Starts slow, but picks up"

    I have been a huge fan of StarCraft since 1998, and this book is definitely a fantastic explanation as to Jim Raynor's origin, as well as his relationship with Tychus from Starcraft II. The narrator is none other than Mr. Tychus Findley himself, and though at the beginning of the story his characters are messy incarnations, by the middle you are already forgetting it's one man reading the story, and by the end you will be wishing there were more StarCraft novels available on Audible!

    "Taken back to middle school"

    The story has a cool idea of where Tycus and Rainer come from. The delivery is not interesting. It doesn't get better throughout the book either.
