Kurzbeschreibung

Four years after the end of the Brood War, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk has rebuilt much of the Terran Dominion and consolidated a new military force despite an ever-present alien threat. Within this boiling cauldron of strife and subversion, a young woman known only as Nova shows the potential to become Mengsk's most lethal and promising "Ghost" operative. Utilizing a combination of pure physical aptitude, innate psychic power, and advanced technology, Nova can strike anywhere with the utmost stealth. Like a phantom in the shadows, she exists only as a myth to the enemies of the Terran Dominion.

Yet Nova wasn't born a killer. She was once a privileged child of one of the Old Families of the Terran Confederacy, but her life changed forever when a rebel militia murdered her family. In her grief, Nova unleashed her devastating psychic powers, killing hundreds in a single, terrible moment. Now, on the run through the slums of Tarsonis, she is unable to trust anyone. Pursued by a special agent tasked with hunting down rogue telepaths, Nova must come to terms with both her burgeoning powers and her guilt -- before they consume her and destroy everything in her path....

Synopsis

It has been four years since the Brood War ended. The emperor has rebuilt much of his Terran Dominion and consolidated a new military force despite the ever-present alien threat. Within this boiling cauldron of strife and subversion, a young woman known only as Nova has the potential to become the Dominion's most lethal and promising "Ghost" operative. Utilizing a combination of physical aptitude, psychic power, and advanced technology, Nova can infiltrate any situation and strike without being seen or heard. And, like a phantom, she exists only as a myth to the enemies of the Dominion she serves.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good start for a good storyline 10. März 2007
Format:Taschenbuch
For starters, I have read all StarCraft novels up to this point, among them, Queen of Blades was by far the best. Now to this one.

In the prologue it starts off in the jungle world of Tyrador where Nova is seeking the 'murderer' of her family. After the prologue the book explains Nova's past and the 'how' of the murder and her affiliation to the ghost program.

The novel begins in her youth. At the same Arcturus Mengsk wants to take over the terran worlds and build up his Terran Dominion. Though this conquering is taking place during the whole story, you don't get much info about it. The main foucs is on the girl, her thoughts and the fight inside herself.

The first time Nova uses her psychic powers is, as her family is getting killed by one of their 'loyal' servants. She gets so furious that with only one thought ( though unintentional ) she kills everyone in the whole building and disappears afterwards into the Gutter, the part of Tarsonis where the poor and the criminals live. There another main character is introduced, he is called Fagin. Fagin is the ruler of the Gutter and so to speak the 'Lord' of everything there. It comes to his attention that there is a teep ( a person who is able to use his/her psychic powers ), in this case Nova, in his quarter of the city. He offers her a deal: working for him. As Nova refuses he lets her go, knowing she will return to him one day, but until then she is going to suffer he thinks.

During that time, a confederate special agent, Malcolm Kelerchian, starts the search for Nova, as his boss ordered him to find her and get her into the Ghost program.

The book continues with those two seperate storylines, until they cross themselves close to the end of the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gutes Buch 30. Juli 2010
Von Tom
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Mir hat das Buch sehr gut gefallen. Dies liegt vielleicht auch daran, dass es das Spiel zu dem Buch nicht gibt und ich damit auch nicht wusste was mich erwartet. Dies unterscheidet das Buch von den anderen Starcraft Büchern. Bei denen kennt man die Story von den Spielen ja schon in groben Zügen.
Das Buch ist in einfachem Englisch geschrieben, so dass normales Schulenglisch völlig ausreichend ist.

3.0 von 5 Sternen not a bad novel after all but terribly formatted 9. September 2012
Von leser
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed the novel - unlike the usual SciFi-videogame/TV-series franchise novel it is well written and actually has some depth. Would have been a four star rating if it wasn't for the mistakes. I don't know how this was adapted into a Kindle-version, but some things are really messed up: the word clear became a dear - has this book been scanned and the scanned content been sloppily edited? Furthermore there are parts were sentences are messed up (I'm not talking about the thoughts the protagonist catches from her environment) were a part of the sentence was moved to a later part of the text. Furthermore the breaks are a pain: The story is told from different perspectives, mainly the investigator Malcolm and of course Nova. Any change in narrative perspective is hardly distinguishable from a usual break indicating a new thought. The book would have been a four-star novel, but for the poor formating I take away one star.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ordentlicher "Videogame" Roman 6. April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch handelt von der Entwicklung von November Terra, einer Tochter der alten Familien im Starcraft Universum, zur "Ghost"-Einheit "Nova". Leider auch nicht viel mehr. ;-) Dennoch ist der Charakter an sich meiner Meinung nach gut dargestellt, wenn auch eigtl. ein bisschen zu "stark", so dass Probleme für sie nie ein wirkliches Problem darstellen. Das Buch ist aber unterhaltsam geschrieben (hatte es in etwa einem Tag durch, wobei es nicht so fesselnd war dass ich nichts anderes hätte machen können wenn ich gewollt hätte ;)) und gibt nebenbei auch einen oberflächlichen Überblick über die Geschehnisse im Starcraft I Computerspiel. Im Vergleich zu den anderen Videospiel-Romanen die ich gelesen habe (Warcraft-Reihe) ist es ein ordentliches Werk, ich denke man kann von diesen Büchern einfach kein Literaturnobelpreisniveau erwarten, vor allem nicht auf ~350 Seiten.
Für Starcraft Fans denke ich ein unterhaltsames, wenn auch kein herausragendes Werk, für Leute die mit dem Spiel nichts am Hut haben evtl. nicht unbedingt lesenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Alas, poor Nova, if only they hadn't killed your game ... 22. August 2007
Von Sicarius Plurimi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First and foremost, the criticisms that people are listing here that the novel ended strangely are (unfortunately) spot on. The reason for this is that this novel was originally intended to be a prequel to the video game StarCraft: Ghost, which was also set to follow the protagonist, Nova. If anyone is to blame for the awkward ending, it is Blizzard rather than DeCandido -- if you read the beginning of the book, you will even notice that there is an apology included from Blizzard that was pasted in at the last minute.

I have always imagined that Ghosts would be tragic characters. They are overwhelmed at a young age by external emotions and thoughts that they cannot control or understand, typically to such a point that they must drug themselves with "inhibitors" that render them as little more than pharmeceutical slaves to the highest military bidder. This is a depressing existence, and I feel that the mood is perfectly captured in this novel. Nova is a great character, and I deeply enjoyed reading about her genesis. The protagonist is very well developed in this story, and I did feel a distinct and emotional attachment to her. I cared about what happened, which is more than I can say for the characters in most other StarCraft novels.

With the exception of Hickman's Speed of Darkness, Grubb's Liberty's Crusade, and DeCandido's Nova, I would be amazed to find that any of the other StarCraft authors even went so far as to pass an introductory-level Creative Writing course. Stick to the three I just mentioned and you'll be okay ... fans of the series looking forward to StarCraft 2 should also read the Dark Templar series that begins with Firstborn.

4.0 von 5 Sternen good story, some awkward moments 28. Dezember 2010
Von Jim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Overall a good read and even better for anyone familiar with the Starcraft universe. The story wasn't what I expected, but it was engaging and kept me reading all the way through. DeCandido made the characters interesting enough for me to care about what happened. From a literary perspective however, it was a little disappointing with some distracting typos and moments of awkward dialogue. It doesn't have the storytelling power of official Blizzard lore, but overall, it's a fun quick read.

In short: great for Starcraft fans or scifi fans looking for something simple

4.0 von 5 Sternen A nice look into Nova's history 28. März 2012
Von Richard Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Good: Gets Nova's backstory across, use of UNN new feeds to tell you about the ongoing battle of the Zerg is unique

The Bad: The made up slang is lame, he sensors cuss words with "flick", not very sophisticated

The backstory of Nova is very interesting, and this book was to be the behind-the-scenes of her from the cancelled PS2 game. The book starts out at Nova's 15th birthday and leads up to the death of her family. She then runs from the rich area to the Gutter to live in alleys and she discovers she's a teep/teek or telepathic/telekinetic. What she has to grow through is pretty horrible, including her working for the drug lord Fagin, and the Wrangler who is sent to capture her for the Ghost program.

The story is very simple, and isn't very sophisticated, but it gets the job done and you can really feel bad for what Nova is going through. Knowing she's just a girl makes her seem more vulnerable, including the fact that she almost gets raped, and must kill for Fagin to stay alive. For some reason DeCandido tries making up his own slang that the people in the Gutter use and it feels forced and is pretty lame. His style of writing is very simple, but he gets his point across. I would have liked to have seen some more detail in the world of the city she lives in, but due to the shortness of the novel you get the bare minimum. The book doesn't feel very StarCrafty except some names from the game and the ongoing battle with the Zerg that goes on in the background of the book through UNN feeds she hears. I thought this was the most clever part of the book, but overall that's it.

Nova is a decent novel and gets the story of her across, but don't expect anything fancy or deep here. With the terrible use of the made up slang, and his simple style of writing this makes for a weekend read, but after that you will probably forget about it.
2.0 von 5 Sternen It tried. It really did. 28. März 2014
Von Nissa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is not the worst Starcraft fanfiction I've ever read. That being said, the narrative style is awful, making it difficult to care about the characters. The author has trouble with giving background to unimportant characters and letting major characters, like Mal for example, do nothing of interest or worth. *spoilers* Seriously, at one point Mal is supposed to rescue Nova, and she literally saves herself, which she apparently could have done at any point before Mal showed up. Mal is therefore useless, and Nova is a moron for not doing so earlier.

Also, I very much dislike it when a story is set early in the Starcraft universe and yet everyone seems to know Mengsk is evil. Mengsk is supposedly an almost magical man who can make you believe what he says when you're listening to him, and yet people who are virtual nobodies in the SC universe see through him. It weakens Mengsk's character and doesn't interest the reader.

That being said, there were plot points and emotions that kept me reading and interested in what happened next. I wanted Nova to do well, and that's important for a story.

This book displayed the journey of one young woman as she evolves from an innocent girl to one of the most fearsome operatives in the military.

It was an intriguing adventure for me.
