Kurzbeschreibung

Jake Ramsey -- an unassuming, yet talented archaeologist -- has been given the chance of a lifetime. Hired to investigate a recently unearthed Xel'Naga temple, he knows this latest assignment will open up whole new possibilities for his career. Yet, when Jake discovers the remains of a long-dead protoss mystic, his hopes and dreams are irrevocably drowned in a flood of alien memories. Bonded to the spirit of the dead protoss, Jake has become the sole inheritor of the protoss's total history -- every event, every thought -- every feeling.

Struggling to maintain his own fragile identity amidst the raging psychic storm in his mind, Jake soon realizes that he has stumbled upon a secret so cataclysmic in magnitude -- that it will shake the very foundations of the universe.

FIRSTBORN

An original tale of space warfare based on the bestselling computer game series from Blizzard Entertainment.

Synopsis

Archaeologist Jacob Ramsey has spent the last two years wasting his time on a fruitless excavation. It seems like a miracle when he gets an invitation to join an elite group of archaeologists in the excavation of one of the Xel'Naga artefacts that are suddenly appearing on various worlds. When Jake stumbles across a dying Protoss and attempts to revive him, the alien psychically and violently begins to 'upload' its memories, essentially rewriting and rewiring Jake's human brain. Jake soon learns a terrible secret - one so important that the dying alien was willing to pass it on to an enemy in order to ensure that the knowledge survives. And what Jake decides to do with the information will seal the fate of worlds throughout the galaxy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A story to be told.... 3. Dezember 2007
Format:Taschenbuch
I don't even know where to start. I just finished this book a few minutes ago and I got the urge to just write down what it felt like.

For four month I hadn't read more than 100 pages and didn't catch the plot what was going on in there. But after starting to read again yesterday, it was getting so much more interesting that I had to finish it. Not only will those characters finally show their true face, but also they will be developed into "true living persons". But let's start off with the story line for a second:

An archeologist - namely Jacob Jefferson Ramsey ( short: Jake ) - is sent to a backwater planet to excavate an alien temple for is employer , the Heir Apparent , Valerian Mengsk, the son of the leader of the Dominion, Arcturus Mengsk. After several weeks of not solving the puzzle and opening the final door inside the beautiful place, he finally solves the riddle and meets and alien inside the chamber with lots of crystals in it - Khaydarin Crystals. The alien is called Zamara - a protoss. She is the protector of the memories of the protoss. Through touching her Jake gains excessive knowledge about the protoss as a race and travels through their early history in present and later dreams when he gets unconscious or sleeps. This is by far the most interesting background story to a main plot which is simply fantastic.

Jake is accompanied by a female mercenary named R.M. ( Rosemary ) Dahl. She is send by Valerian to guard his excavation and protect Jake's team by any means necessary. Shortly after the temple door is opened she reveals her true self by taking Jake's whole team into custody together with her marine goons.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, faithful to lore, advances StarCraft story. 5. November 2010
Von Jared Dicioccio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
First, I'm a StarCraft gamer. I have been since SC1. I play SC2 fanatically now. I go to tournaments, can recite the lore surrounding any character or unit. I write on Wikis and generally just love StarCraft. So I write this for anyone who's wondering "Is this a REAL StarCraft book or just some spinoff and will I learn anything?" This is also more a review of the entire trilogy than any one book. If you're thinking of buying this book, just go ahead and buy them all.

*** I will not include any major spoilers, but there may be some minor ones. ***

I bought these books to learn more about the SC world. Many things in the games are not fully explained and I was hoping these novels would shed light on them. I was not disappointed. It was obviously written as a bridge between Brood War and SC2 and will explain a lot about the history of the Protoss and the Dark Templar. You'll learn a bit about the Xel'Naga (not that anyone really knows much about them) and be introduced to Valerian Mensk who will prove to be a major character in SC2: Wings of Liberty. Also, if you haven't played SC2 yet, a major theme of the game will be introduced.

Many characters from the games (mostly Protoss) are prominent figures and it is absolutely delightful to see them fleshed out as real people. The new characters are also wonderfully written and fit in well with the overall feel of the SC universe. A familiar villain from Brood War is back (no not just Kerrigan) but I will not say who. But it is great that you get to learn of his origins.

There is a very natural progression to each story. When I finished the trilogy it was almost amazing how far from the opening pages I had traveled. Yet it is very organic and smooth. Each book has its own identity but fits together into the trilogy perfectly. There is definite continuity between each book, but they still maintain their own distinction.

Overall you will learn a lot.. StarCraft is still a universe of mysteries, but enough is explained to leave you both satisfied and hungering for more. Each book leads directly into the next and could just as well be one massive book. It all concludes very well in the end, tying up every end it needs to while baiting you just enough to want to know more.

The author goes beyond knowing about StarCraft lore. She obviously knows her stuff and must have worked fairly close with Blizzard to make sure things were accurate. As a testament to her, she also authored World of Warcraft: The Shattering: Book One of Cataclysm, the introduction to Blizzard's biggest x-pac to WoW.

If you're a StarCraft or Blizzard fan you should buy all 3 of these books right now. If you're a general sci-fi fan, this trilogy will be a good introduction into the world of StarCraft. The other SC novels ranged from terrible to pretty good. The Dark Templar trilogy is excellent, easily the best SC books to date. So if you're looking at StarCraft novels and wondering what to buy or if you're a SC gamer and want to know more, buy this trilogy!

Other books in this trilogy:
Starcraft: Dark Templar--Shadow Hunters (Starcraft, Shadow Hunters, Bk. 2 of 3)
StarCraft: Dark Templar--Twilight (Starcraft: Twilight) (Bk. 3)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read the series!! 25. Juli 2010
Von Joshua D. Prange - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First and foremost, if your thinking about reading this book just go ahead and buy all 3 books in the saga. I ended up reading them as they were released, and I blew through them as soon as I got them. This series is one of the best I have EVER read. Shortly after beginning this book I was hoooked. The story is excellent and pulls you in and hold you there. I thought the balance between action & background was expertly done, I can honestly say that I never lost interest at any point of the saga. If you are a fan of the Starcraft universe like me you'll really like this saga. I especially liked the fact that there were backgound stories involving the terrans, protoss, & the zerg. Also, if your one of the people who just found out about the Starcraft universe via the new game Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, these books are a great place to start if you want to get to know more about the races that make up the awesome world of Starcraft.

A review of StarCraft First Born
By: Armando Bedenbaugh-Cortes
The story StarCraft first born is based on a very popular computer game with a very interesting background story. However, the characters and species are not explored sufficiently. This book goes even deeper into the StarCraft universe. If you have not played StarCraft the game tells of humans who have left earth to colonize on different planets. The book takes place well after the humans have already colonized. The colonized planets are ruled by an emperor by the name of Mengsk. Mengsk's son hires the main character named Jake Jefferson Ramsey to investigate an ancient temple of unknown origin. Jake is an archeologist with an experienced team behind him. But Jake makes a discovery in the temple that changes his life and takes him on an amazing adventure.
The book is especially interesting because it tells of an alien race called the Protoss. In the game StarCraft, not much is really revealed about the Protoss other than how they are extremely advanced and they are descendants of another alien race called the Xel'Naga. The book tells the story of the Protoss in extreme detail while at the same time exciting the reader with the adventures of Jake. I could not wait to see what was going to happen to both Jake and what happens in the early stages of Protoss history. If you have played StarCraft and want to learn more about the history behind the story this is the book for you.
The way the Author (Christie Golden) writes is sublime. The author never fails to make me laugh at her clever sense of humor. The characters have unique personalities and their background history is presented quite realistically. It's so well written the reader feels like the characters are real human beings. The suspenseful writing and interesting story kept my eyes glued to the pages. The story does not go into detail about things that a StarCraft veteran should already know. So if you don't know about the story of StarCraft you may be a little confused. Whether or not you have played the game this was a good story with many twists and turns that I could not have seen coming. This is only the first book of a series of three. Be aware that this book is not for anyone under 14 years of age.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pleasantly Surprised 24. April 2009
Von M. Bennett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is not the typical kind of book I read. It is the typical book for my son. He always reads books based off of video games. I made a bet with him trying to broaden his horizons. I told him that I would read one of his books if he read one of mine. So he gave me this one. I was VERY reluctant to start it but once I did, I found it was not so bad. I actually was able to read the whole book and enjoy it while doing so. I personally would of gave it 3 stars since I liked it but did not love it. My son on the other hand said he would give it 5 stars because he did love it. So I compromised and gave it 4. If you are into science fiction or books based off of video games, I am sure you'll probably like this one.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Adun Toridas 9. Juli 2014

While I was already a fan of the Starcraft series before reading this book, I was skeptical on getting into it from the beginning.

I'm glad I finally decided to pick this up and dive in.

Those who are even somewhat familiar with the series will find this book, and the rest of the series, a great reminder of why the canon is worth the time and effort to familiarize.

This book starts with a standard Terran fashion, and quickly delves into the Protoss side of it. You will learn of the first steps of the Protoss as a people, on their homeworld of Aiur, and how they turned into the leading alien race in the Koprulu Sector.

Readers will also learn the true worth of the Protoss Preservers, and why they are deemed the most important individuals to the Protoss.
