Blizzplanet reviews StarCraft II: Flashpoint by New York Times best-selling author Christie Golden.
The novel, based on Blizzard Entertainment's award-winning Real-Time Strategy video game: StarCraft, bridges the gap between StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
The first page starts two seconds after Commander Jim Raynor shoots his best friend Tychus Findlay for treason during the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty final cinematic.
The writer portrays the return of Sarah Kerrigan. She's no longer the Queen of Blades, except for the tendrils on her head.
Is this novel a good read? Absolutely. Prince Valerian Mengsk's intentions are more clear than ever. Readers learn more about Emil Narud and his Moebius Foundation.
Not a bad topic considering most of Wings of Liberty, Jim Raynor and Tychus were paid by the Moebius Foundation in exchange of mercenary missions to gather resources and Xel'Naga artifacts for them.
