Publisher's Summary

Jake Ramsey - an unassuming yet talented archaeologist - has been given the chance of a lifetime. Hired to investigate a recently unearthed Xel'Naga temple, he knows this latest assignment will open up whole new possibilities for his career. Yet when Jake discovers the remains of a long-dead protoss mystic, his hopes and dreams are irrevocably drowned in a flood of alien memories. Bonded to the spirit of the dead protoss, Jake has become the sole inheritor of the protoss' total history - every event, every thought - every feeling.

Good story, weak narration

A good storyline (not on the level of Liberty though) but it was utterly let down by the narration. Others liked it but it just did not work for me and quickly became a book I had to force myself to finish.

Christie Golden doesn't have a wide enough range

I love her writing. I can read Arthas and this back to front all day, but Ms. Golden, I can't buy your vocal performance, especially when we're dealing with big, gruff men. I'm sorry to have to say it. I really tried hard to listen, but 3 chapters in and I'm consistently taken out of the experience by her struggling to voice the male characters.

Hard to stop.

Loved every moment of it and the character progression was wonderful, as well as the efficient switch between them.

The best! I can't wait for the next one!

This is one of the most engrossing stories I've listened to in a long time.

I was so disappointed when it ended! To me that is the best indication of how much it held my attention.

If you love StarCraft, you'll love this book.

One of my favorite trilogy from Starcraft!

Loved it. I have read and reread the trilogy many times and it is awesome to finally hear it in a audiobook. I cant wait for Shadow Hunters to co.e out. It is a great back story to the beginnings of the Khala and a good history of the Protoss.
