Overview

The critically acclaimed Fringe television series explores the dramatic and grotesque as impossible crimes are investigated by the government's shadowy Fringe Division, established when Special Agent Olivia Dunham enlisted institutionalized "fringe" scientist Walter Bishop and his globe-trotting son, Peter, to help in investigations that defy all human logic - and the laws of nature.

Author Christa Faust (Choke Hold, Supernatural) is working hand-in-hand with the television writers to create new adventures uncovering the secrets of the series. The first novel revealed how Walter Bishop and William Bell discovered the drug Cortexiphan—and the alternate universe! Book two will explore how Olivia Dunham first was subjected to Cortexiphan experiments, with catastrophic results.

Faust has been given unprecedented access to stories that have not been told on-screen, but weave directly into the series canon, much as Joss Whedon's Buffy graphic novels continue that series' official storyline.

This book may have been good if it took place in another universe. If you are a fan of the show the book will piss you off, because its inaccurate, to Olivias moms name to her and sister not living with her aunt. The Pace of the book was bad also. Trust me im s huge fan of the show, thats why this book was bad to me. Book 1 of fringe is good even tho there is a couple things wrong, it still stayed with the show. This book is just too inaccurate.
