Overview

For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy’s fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight alongside a slew of neurally resocialized criminals—and a few dubious military leaders. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he’s really fighting for.

For the first time ever, StarCraft enthusiasts will learn the origins of the enduring friendship between the young upstart Jim Raynor and the streetwise soldier Tychus Findlay. Watch as they battle on the front lines of a fierce interplanetary war and bear witness to the Confederacy’s rank corruption—corruption so reprehensible that it rains immeasurable death and destruction upon the government’s own people.

If you already have some cash down on the "hopefully" late July release of Starcraft 2 then this book should hold you over and help you develop a since of how the characters stand in the game. The book focuses around Jim Raynor's early teen life and picks up slowly going from farm boy to Confed Recruit to Marine. It's a good book and I feel if I say anything I maybe revealing too much. . but here's a something to perk your ears: There is a character by the name Tychus J. Findlay who is befriended by Raynor. . . well the Starcraft 2 video preview. . . that's him. . .how does he come by having chains on him?? Read the book. Cheers.

This book did not quite deliver. The second act was a bit slow, and I found myself bored at times. But the first and especially third acts more than make up for it. I was pleasantly surprised to find a few truly well-developed characters. The author could have expanded on a few characters, and some plot points were also weak. But I did like the book, don't get me wrong, but I would go into it expecting little so you will be pleasantly surprised. Enjoy. Devil's Due, here I come. :)

Full of action, suspense, greed, revenge, and destruction. If you have played the any of the StarCrafts, this is a must have.

This book, while it does provide insight into what presaged Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay in the Starcraft series, is not a good stand-alone novel. I actually had to put the book down in mid sentence in some places because it was poorly written and the dialogue was just not believable. The characters did not blend well with each other, were 2D, and altogether uninteresting. The only reason I would recommend this book to someone is if they REALLY wanted to know the backstory behind the Starcraft characters.

wow i always wondered what made Jim Raynor tick and what got him started. Well in the Heaven's Devils lies the answer. This book really goes down deep to expose where one of the most iconic characters got his charisma, attitude, his experience. i could not put the book down from the moment i got it.
