"It’s all too easy to be skeptical when approaching novels based on popular video game series’. There’s good reason to believe that most of them will be lazily plotted and written tripe that exists for no other purpose than to cash in on the popularity of a franchise and will most likely disappoint anyone looking for an engaging extended look into a game’s universe.
Such were my expectations going into the 2010 novel Dead Space: Martyr, not having known that its author, B.K. Evenson, was in fact a prolific horror writer. What I ended up with, however, was a genuine page-turner that succeeded in fleshing out the backstory of the Dead Space saga while also providing a read that was interesting and well-written in its own right."
