    If you d like to see my reviews of the first two Mass Effect books click on the links Revelation and Ascension.The first Mass Effect book, Revelation, was a way to get Mass Effect suited to the book world It involved characters from the first game and acted as a prequel The novelty of it was that you read about places you, technically, had been to walked through, ran through, shot at people through, etc By involving the characters we knew i

    Timeline note Retribution is set almost immediately after the main storyline of ME2 concludes, but before The Arrival DLC Which, I suppose, makes it canonical that The Arrival is post game, even if you can play it through in the middle of the storyline But it always worked better, from a story perspective, as a post game adventure than a mid game one.Retribution has a strong hook The Illusive Man has infected Grayson with Reaper nanotech as revenge

    Well, purely in the comparative context of the Mass Effect novels, Retribution is all right and actually noticeably better written than Revelation I haven t read Ascension yet That honestly isn t saying much, though.If you re a fan of the Mass Effect game series as I am, it may be worth a read through as a companion to the game As a novel, though, I can t really say much in praise of Retribution, I m afraid Many of the same problems plague Retribution as d

    Granted I m a little bias when it comes to Mass Effect so my review isfan reactive This book carries on from Ascension and the Illusive Man has a lot of wheels in motion The book is something for the fans and it delivers on this front, Karpyshyn has a lot of the early novelist errors but this book starts with a lot of action and barely lets go The Reapers are true unknown antagonists here and Cerebus are out to save mankind in their usual extreme methods If you ha

    I really enjoyed Drew Karpyshyn s Mass Effect series of books that tied into the games This third book in the series wraps things up and leads into Mass Effect 2 This gives readersinformation on The Illusive Man and how Cerberus works It also providesinformation on Kahlee Sandersand David Anderson and there is even a brief mention of Shepherd All good stuff for Mass Effect fans Now that Andromeda is out, it was kind of nice to listen to some of the old school Mass Effect

    Surprisingly, this one had the barest glimpse of potential at being an interesting story Squandered, but there was the gem of an idea here However, the writing was awful Once , nearly every line of dialog is accompanied by a phrase telling us the internal mental state of the character in question And the paragraphs of prose in between dialog blocks are merely transcriptions of what the characters are thinking, what their base motivations are, punctuated by clumsily written action

    The lie ran so deep that even those who d helped bury the truth had convinced themselves the Reapers were nothing but a myth They continued on with their mundane existence, too weak and too stupid to acknowledge the horrific destiny awaiting them But the Illusive Man had devoted his life to facing unpleasant truths.

    Having read all three Mass Effect novels written by Drew Karpyshyn, I have to say they are very much three of a kind Same style of writing, same ideas about the plot in all three Each book seeks to flesh out the Mass Effect universe without directly touching on the main plot of the games This is really a double edged sword On the one hand, getting too deeply into the main plot wouldn t make fans happy as there is such a variety of paths and choices to take the player character that inevitabl Having read all thr
