Publisher's Summary

The official prequel to the latest instalment of the Far Cry video game series.

Hope County, Montana. Land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as The Church of Eden’s Gate that has slowly been infiltrating the residents’ daily lives in the past years.

Mary May Fairgrave, a local barkeep, has lost almost everything to the Church: her parents died in suspicious conditions and her brother, entranced by the cult leader’s charismatic words, has vanished. When the authorities refuse to investigate further, she decides to take matters in to her own hands.

Local hunter William Boyd was saved by Eden’s Gate years ago, during the darkest moments of his life. When his duties lead him to cross paths with Mary May, the daughter of one of his old friends, he soon discovers that what is happening in the county is far from what he believed.

Up against an omniscient and dangerous adversary, Mary May stands little chance. But the unexpected intervention of William Boyd will change her journey - as well as his.

Wasted Opportunity

This could have done a deep dive into the origins of the Seed family, but chose to keep it super small scale. I fell asleep multiple times. :)

Love how they do this for games, but I was looking for more history. Thanks!

A nice tie-in with well-written characters

About 70% finished with the game, I decided to take a break to listen to the book. It definitely kept my interest throughout, though there were certain elements it didn't have that I wish it had contained (there's little or no mention of Faith, or the Angels). I'd also echo what I saw others say that I wish it had had more history of Hope County and the cult itself. But even so, a good read and good tie-in - just the other day I stumbled onto the protagonist Will Boyd's cabin in the game, which was a cool way to make it all feel connected.

I Was Expecting Guy Ritchie and Got Harlan Coben

This was a very different experience than I expected. Going into a Far Cry Novel I was expecting dark humor and graphic violence. It was quite the opposite. While occasionally violent it never seamed graphic. And I don't believe there was much if any humor to be found. Instead I found surprisingly deep prose and a western feeling adventure novel that felt more like a gritty noir than a novel based an a video game. It wasn't a bad novel it just wasn't what I was hoping for going in. I'm sure many will enjoy it.

Mark Bramhall did an excellent job narrating and had the perfect voice for these characters.

Great Introduction into the world of Far Cry 5!

I’m not totally sure if this book would be great as a stand alone story if you’re not planning on playing the game. But if you are, it’s a great backbone the world created in Far Cry 5. You really get a great feel for the intensity of fear in the people of Hope County.

Insightful!

I grabbed this book to add some depth to the upcoming game Far Cry 5. Little did I know I was purchasing one of the best stories I've read in a LONG time. Truly adds another level to the story of the game, but it's not just something to accompany the game. This book has everything that should allow it to stand alone as a good read regardless of playing the game.
