Publisher's Summary

They slept for hundreds of years, dreaming of a new home in the Andromeda galaxy. When finally they awake, their dreams of peace are shattered. These colonists - turian, salarian, asari, human, and more - face an uncharted galaxy and threats beyond understanding.

The Nexus is the core from which the colonists will explore their new home. Yet even before the arks arrive, the massive space station sustains critical damage. The entire mission is placed in jeopardy, and security director Sloane Kelly must reassert order while racing to identify the nature of the threat that faces them.

If she fails, the Andromeda Initiative could crumble.

    "Five Star Review But Be Warned"
    What made the experience of listening to Mass Effect™ Andromeda: Nexus Uprising the most enjoyable?

    The writing and the performance is top notch. The fact that we meet these characters while playing Mass Effect Andromeda adds to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sloane Kelly.


    Have you listened to any of Fryda Wolff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    It compares well. I think she did the most recent Brett Battles book but am not sure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, ideally BEFORE playing Mass Effect Andromeda


    Any additional comments?

    This book gets five stars from me because it's the highest caliber writing and performance. Here the thing it's a prequel for Mass Effect Andromeda the video game. It's the missing backstory to the game that we hear about as we meet the characters in this book but don't get to see play out because it happens in the past.

    The warning in my title refers to the fact that at the end of the novel it has the feel of setting up a future series of books. The problem with that is that those books will never be published as the story will continue and conclude in the video game Mass Effect Andromeda and perhaps forthcoming DLC. Worse the all of the main characters here are seen from the point of view of Ryder and have very limited screen time in the video game. As long as you are okay with all that, and I was, you're in for a very good time with this one.

    "Engaging"

    Fryda Wolfe has excellent pace and inflection in her voice. This book really fills in some gaps in the game's narrative and makes me care about the characters. I'm genuinely looking forward to diving deeper into this new galaxy.

    "Good background info for the game"

    This book makes several unsympathetic characters in the video game much more understandable, and gives you context as to why they act the way they do. Does not deal with any of the main characters of the game, but there are plenty of recognizable characters. The voice acting is good, minus some of the krogan voices but overall the feeling of growing tension is transmitted well to the reader. I definitely look forward to the next 2 entries in this series as they will hopefully focus more on background info for andromeda rather than the nexus.

    "love it, if you like the game, you'll like this"

    "Disappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Unsure


    What was most disappointing about Jason M. Hough and K. C. Alexander ’s story?

    I have enjoyed most of the previous Mass Effect books (and the games, of course), but this one was pretty disappointing. The plot drags, and the delivery is uninspired, which is surprising given the narrator's talents in the ME: Andromeda game.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Fryda Wolff’s performances?

    Possibly


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mass Effect™ Andromeda: Nexus Uprising?

    They should have focused on more action, mystery and character interaction. People bickering in a city-planning meeting gets old fast, and half the book is just taken up with how tired everyone is.


    Any additional comments?

    The characterization is hit or miss. Tann, Addison and Sloan are interesting characters, but they seem to miss the opportunity to really flesh them out. Especially Sloan, who is just a perpetual ball of anger. Surely she has other emotions.

    "Andromeda"

    this is a great book to accompany the new Mass effect game. if you are new to Mass effect and it's lore somethings are going to be confusing. So I recommend doing some reading on the lore or better yet play the games. the narrator was great and the story was great. it shines a new light to some of the characters in the new game and makes them more understandable and relatable as people. Playing through the game some of the characters like Sloan Kelly ( forgive my spelling of her name) I thought where bad just to be bad but this book brings out the motives of the person and makes me consider my dialogue in the game more thoughtfully​. TL;DR great book to accompany the new game not so much if you are new to the Mass effect universe.

    You may be tempted to give up in the first half of the book. But if you hang in you will be rewarded. Good prequel to the game.

    "Can Fryda Wolff Narrate like everything, please?"

    The book itself is great, I also own it in paperback. But the narration for this was so amazing. I really just want her to narrate everything I read. Haha. I 100% recommend the audio book version.

    Sloane, addison, tann, you understand all that happened before the game starts. Makes me want to play it through again and maybe make some different decisions.

    "Great insight into Andromeda lore"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, but I would say that it assumes you know a little about the Mass Effect universe before you start which could be an issue for anyone unfamiliar with the games. It gives you a really good insight into the hardships suffered before the beginning of the games and an understanding of some of the cynicism shown by a lot of the characters within the game.
    The story moves fairly rapidly, and as such descriptions of locales and people/aliens seem a little rushed, again this is not a problem if you are familiar with the games but could be an issue for anyone attempting to read this as a standalone.

    I really enjoyed the mass effect trilogy but haven't yet played andromeda, after this book I am in no rush. The characters were unlikable the story didn't really go anywhere and there was little reference to the larger mass effect universe other than the species involved (and then only four of them)

    Good intro to Mass Effect Andromeda, and well read. It's good to know a bit of the back story behind some of the characters that you meet in the game.
