    One thought on “Nova”

    1. StarCraft Ghost Nova tells the story of a scion of the Old Families, November Annabella Terra, and how she became one of the most talented and powerful Ghost agents in the Terran Dominion This seems like it should make for a pretty interesting read, but it never manages to rise beyond anything than passable.The writing is fairly competent, but at times the plot progression feels forced This becomes most apparent towards the end of the novel when the wrangler, a hunter of psychics working for th [...]

    2. The main character s name is Nova Terra kinda funny cause a strange test was called the Terra nova She is a psychic who is working in the Terran military and this is her story of before she became a dog of the military.She was born a telepath but did not know the extent of her own powers until she unleashed her powers upon some killers that killed most of her family in her own home.She ran away from authorities into the slum district of the city called The Gutter She was forced to work under a c [...]

    3. I can sincerely recommend this novel to every StarCraft fan and also to everyone in need of an enjoyable sci fi story It s a flicking good book I ve always liked Blizzard Entertainment and their games but sometimes their lack of originality would make me pretty angry In case of Nova the main purpose of introducing her into the story was replacing Sarah Kerrigan as a badass female sniper who could turn invisible Even her genuine character portrait was the same as Kerrigan s but with blonde hair i [...]

    4. A note for anyone considering this novel There is zero appearance of the Zerg or the Protoss in this title It is primarily a character exploration story, with minimal action It is definitely worth a read, but not a good target for normal expectations of Starcraft carnage.

    5. The novel that got me into reading, a genuine recommendation.I read this book for the first time a number of years ago during a time where I only enjoyed films and viewed imagery graphic novels Reading just hadn t grabbed me up until that point That was until I read this novel, a novel with such a touching story that tragic protagonist that I simply have not looked back since.While author Keith R.A DeCandido s pros are not the most sophisticated his writing strength lies in his ability to create [...]

    6. I m so so on this one I am usually a big fan of the author,and enjoy his books immensely However, I feel that the premise of the book was what failed It seemed like Blizzard wanted to save all the sneaking, girl kick butt, ghost stuff for their game the one that never came out , and we got stuck with everything before any of that Think about it When you pick up a book with Starcraft Ghost on the cover, with a girl and a gun, that s what you re expecting, right The problem is only the first and l [...]

    7. Being a Starcraft fan, I fully enjoyed this book You learn about Terran society and the lore related to GHOST units within the game although these versions of ghost are MUCH powerful than the ghost s that set off nukes cloak in SC1 You see the world through the super elite the old family s who obtained their status being the first to colonize Tarsonis capital planet of the Terrans as well as those inhabitants who are the complete opposite lowlifes that no one cares about.Many of the characters [...]

    8. Starcraft Ghost Nova is a story about the Ghost named Nova who is supposly a strong Psi Ghost But before she came a ghost she was a daughter to a weathy family Then it all change when most of her family was murder right infront of her and she goes crazy unleashing her power She then runs away and the Ghost programs finds a spike about her and want to recruit her into their program They send an agent after her trying to find her in the slums of the world Before he can find Nova she is taken into [...]

    9. Another 3.5 for me I really wish we could do half stars I actually quite liked the ending It s cool to take a look at the life that the probably never going to be published Starcraft Ghost star began with Also neat that we got to see a glimpse of her in Starcraft II So anyway Not bad, I enjoyed it Some things felt a little forced though I have a hard time pinpointing exactly why it felt like that I think I also have a small pet peeve with young girls in their teenage years calling their parents [...]

    10. A pretty good book The only reason it didn t make 4 stars is because I thought there was too much ink given to the random thoughts of people that were irrelevant to the story The first couple of times it was an interesting and enlightening detail, but I felt it was a bit overused.Aside from that, I liked it Wish I could give it 3.5 stars, because it s a little than a 3, but not quite 4 I like the character development and background Would like to read about Nova s adventures as a qualified Gho [...]

    11. Well, this one was probably the worst book I read in my entire life It should have been a novelisation of a game that was never released, and it doesn t work because we have that same clicheed story of a child who has great up to legendary potential To add an insult to injury, f words are replaced with freck And since that is only thing I remember from this novel, you can see how bad it was.

    12. It took me a while to get into this story It s told in medias res and for a brand new genre and new mechanical concepts, it took a few chapters to follow along and pick up the story Nova s story is a tragedy, to be certain I am glad that her final mission was what it was, though I am saddend that the story line of the past dies I look forward to reading about this world, and the conflicts arising from unidentified sources, as well as leadership on the homefront.

    13. A thoroughly enjoyable and well written book An exciting story for fans, as well as a very good introduction to the Star Craft universe The story takes nice twists and turns, with solid characters A very good prequel to the game as intended , sadly however the game was cancelled I thought the author did a great job of putting the reader in Nova s mind and how she experiences her telepathy The best of the the author, in my oppinion.

    14. This book was awesome.It relied enough on the game s lore, but still would be readable and understandable if you d never played the games.It follows the story of Nova, girl with incredible psionic abilities she discovers after a traumatic experience The idea behind the story was a generally gloomy and sad one, but I would still recommend the book to anyone who likes Starcraft or a good sci fi story.

    15. Probably one of my favorite books set in the StarCraft world It follows the life of probably one of the shadowly type characters in the StarCraft universe well Dark Templar could probably give them a run for their money Its almost a shame they cancelled Ghost, hopefully Blizzard will eventually bring out the rest of the Ghost story.

    16. This was an okay book I mean, it was good, but just not enough of what was needed to make the book really good It is cool, as this girl, Nova, I think, can use telekinesis and make people like go insane and dead Read it definately, but if there are other video game novels out there, read them instead

    17. This was a decent enough book, it just didn t quite deliver what I was hoping for If you are looking for a gritty backstory on Starcraft, or Nova then this has it If you are looking for a good story of a young assassin coming into her powers, with training and challenges along the way, this is not it.

    18. A prequel to a cancelled game It is still an interesting, and tragic, story setting up this character, but it largely ignores common sense with regards to the Starcraft universe Any character development that would have been provided for the game was rendered worthless by the ending.

    19. Plot wise, an ok book Mostly what didn t make the grade for me was the last second twist that makes this book lore wise unimportant If anything saved it, it was the portrayal of some settings from a perspective we never got to see in the games.

    20. I think that Nova was a really good book and that it shows how that the life of the rich isnt always so good Its an interesting book and quiet sad in some bits but overall it very hard to put the book down

    21. Not bad As an avid gamer and writer, this book packed twice the punch for me I loved the unique phrases and language the characters use, and the style of narration is one I d like to imitate Well written, quick, and very entertaining Hooray for Starcraft.

    22. After reading this i can say again that i hate blizzard for not continuing Starcraft Ghost development D I would have loved to experience this adventure D

    23. Quite a pointless book as neither the game for which it was supposed to be an origin story never got released nor any actual followup happened in the Starcraft universe.

    24. loved this book it is just amazing I was so disappointed that Blizard cancelled the game but this story is something I loved and became one of my favorite books.
