For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy's fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight alongside a slew of mysteriously docile criminals—and a few dubious military leaders. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he's really fighting for.

For the first time ever, StarCraft enthusiasts will learn the ori­gins of the enduring friendship between the young upstart Jim Raynor and the streetwise soldier Tychus Findlay. Watch as they battle on the front lines of a fierce interplanetary war and bear witness to the Confederacy's rank corruption—corruption so reprehensible that it rains immeasurable death and destruction upon the government's own people.

Great book. Definitely not New York Times Bestseller material, but then again it's based on a video game. Even still, it's a very interesting read, delving into the back story of James Raynor and Tychus Findlay as well as several others who have not yet been seen in the games. Read full review

Its a book about video game characters so what can you expect really. A very forgettable story sprinkled with references to vultures, stimpacks, and Jim Raynor.
