Overview

Sixty-thousand light-years from Earth, the corrupt Terran Confederacy holds the Koprulu sector tightly in its tyrannical grip, controlling every aspect of its citizens' lives. One man dares to stand up to this faceless empire and vows to bring it to its knees: Arcturus Mengsk -- genius propagandist, tactician, and freedom fighter.

A monstrous act of bloody violence sows the seeds of rebellion in Arcturus, but he is not the first Mengsk to rail against such oppression. Before Arcturus grew to manhood, his father, Angus Mengsk, also defied the Confederacy and sought to end its brutal reign.

The destiny of the Mengsk family has long been tied to that of the Confederacy and the Koprulu sector, but as a new empire rises from the ashes of the past and alien invaders threaten the very existence of humanity, what will the future hold for the next generation...?

    Original

    Yet another great book set in the StarCraft universe, Graham Mcneil delivers with a different style that is highly enjoyable. Less action packed than the rest of the StarCraft novels, but with great hindsight and character development that ties in with the other books and video games. Excellent portrayal of the Mengsk family and some interesting side elements that help build the actual StarCraft universe.

    As I say with every StarCraft novel, I very much hope that there will be several more to come, and now I can add another author to the list of people I would consider 'acceptable' to write in that universe.

    Awesome

    Yet another great novel is added to the ranks of Starcraft books. This prequel gives some fascinating and revealing insight into one of the most compelling characters in the Starcraft Universe as well as introducing some new characters that we always new were there but didn't know anything about (aka. mengsks parents, etc.). I cannot reccomend this book highly enough for fans of the Starcraft Universe.
