Jake Ramsey -- an unassuming, yet talented archaeologist -- has been given the chance of a lifetime.

    From one marine to another...

    It was a pretty great book imo. not alot of action, but it introduces the chars and sets up for the second book in the series 'Shadow Hunters' with amazing efficiency. i finished the second one a few days ago, which was even better than the first. =D

    Good book!

    Overall a good book. Some interesting details into mankind's way of life in this universe. I normally like SC books to be a little more action packed but this was a good read. I'm hoping it will be like many series and just an intro to the overall story. Hopefully the second one will be more action packed now that we have the characters backround.

    Decent

    Pretty good for what it is, a book based on a video game. If you dig Starcraft, it's a fun read.
