An all-new adventure inspired by the award-winning videogame from BioWare!
The universe is under siege. Every fifty thousand years, a race of sentient machines invades our galaxy to harvest all organic life-forms. They are the Reapers.
Two people who know the truth are desperately searching for a way to stop the cycle: Navy admiral David Anderson and his partner, Kahlee Sanders. They have uncovered grisly evidence proving that the Reaper threat is real. But in so doing they have exposed the machinations of Cerberus, a secretive paramilitary organization, and its mysterious leader, the Illusive Man—putting David and Kahlee in mortal danger, for Cerberus will stop at nothing to protect its secrets.
But along the way, they find an unlikely ally in Gillian Grayson, a young woman with extraordinary powers. Once the subject of horrifying scientific experiments, Gillian is now free—and beginning to master her deadly abilities. But after learning that Cerberus was responsible for the death of her father, Gillian swears vengeance against the group and the Illusive Man—threatening to unravel everything Kahlee and David are fighting for.
From the Paperback edition.
A travesty to the series.
I'll put it simply, the story is so full of errors you'd think a child wrote it. I don't think Mr. Dietz knows anything about Mass Effect beyond the generic descriptions found on Wikipedia. This book has no business being considered Mass Effect canon. Do yourself a favor and avoid this garbage.
This book, if it can be called that, is an awful thing. The author obviously has no respect for the series or its fans. The book is filled with inaccuracies and misinformation. A disappointing and pitiful black mark on an otherwise spotless series. Hopefully any future books will be written by someone who is actually a fan of the series and wants to do the Mass Effect universe and its fans justice.
Wait for the next edition ....
