Overview

The Cylons' Secret: Battlestar Galactica 2 by Craig Shaw Gardner

Sometimes no news is bad news.

It's been twenty years since the end of the Cylon war. The twelve human colony worlds are rebuilding, and the Cylons . . . the Cylons have been just too quiet. They are nowhere to be found. The robotic race that tried to obliterate their creators has gone to parts unknown in deep space.

The aftermath of the war has created a new, illegal profession: scavenger. Tom Zarek is one, scouring the outer settlements for valuable Cylon technologies and artifacts and usually returning empty-handed. But now, he and the crew of the Cruiser Lightning have found the Omega Station, a scientific station shrouded in secrecy beyond the edge of charted space. This is it, the big score, except something is wrong…the base is still occupied, not by humans alone; by Cylons too!

The Battlestar Galactica, one of the oldest warships in the fleet, receives the Lightning's distress call, a cryptic one-word message: "Cylons." William Adama, newly promoted to second-in-command, is worried. Most of his crew are green, new recruits, not prepared for anything but the most routine missions. And, as Adama soon discovers, this mission is anything but routine. Omega is indeed full of Cylons, but also something much more disturbing . . .

Now a month or so before I wrote this review, I saw a ton of people arguing over the quality of this work.Well, I checked it out of my local library and read it. For starters, I thought the intro was pretty good.But after that,it just went downhill.I wish I could tell you how easily you could tear yourself away from this disaster,but it was a train wreck in every sense of the word.It gave me a unique look at well,what could have been a really good story. I recognize that there are some people that like this book,but it doesn't fit the bill as something I'm going to buy an hour after I finish reading it because its that good. If you want to read a Battlestar Galactica book without laughing for the wrong reasons read Unity or Sagittarius is Bleeding.

I'm not a fan of the show, but my husband is, and he truly enjoyed this story.

He read it in only a day, which is a near-record! He said it doesn't exactly follow the show, but it was a good, quick read that fans should really like.
