As her investigation leads down a maze of dark corridors, painful memories of her pre-ghost years begin to surface. Soon, Nova learns that there might be a connection between the missing agents and her past, a discovery that will pit her against both the shadows ofher youth and a terrifying new breed of psionic warrior: spectres.
This is the story that StarCraft fans have been waiting for—a pulse-pounding adventure based on the never-released StarCraft: Ghost tactical-action console game.

Spectres by Nate Kenyon A titanic clash of psionic powers as Ghost meet Spectres in this action packed story based on the StarCraft science-fiction real-time strategy game. Nova Terra is a complex character who is beginning to question her allegiance to an empire of questionable value. Her own personal standards of loyalty conflict with her emotional turmoil and intellectual prowess. Combine this personal angst with enough action to satisfy the most demanding reader and you have a book that is sure to be a success. This book is not just for StarCraft fans. I did play StarCraft and perhaps that impacted my perception of the book but I feel you can read and enjoy this book as a stand alone. You need not to have played or even heard of StarCraft to enjoy the book. I recommend it.

The StarCraft line of books are all amazing in their own way. This didn't live up to it's potential but still definitely worth the read.
My main issues (without giving anything away);
either use swears or don't. don't have hardened soldiers using phrases like flipping and flicking to tone down the language. it sounds childish.
It's military fiction but the author should still know that a private is not an officer/vise versa, not even in this series :)
This book is more about internal struggles/feelings than characters accomplishing/interacting (kind of like the book StarCraft: Ghost) but like I said it's a StarCraft book and still worth the read.
