Starcraft: I, Mengsk

Refresh and try again. Thanks for telling mejgsk about the problem. The changes in perspective made this a fun book to read, not just in a recreational manner, but to a small extent as an intellectual activity.

The destiny of the Mengsk family has long been tied to that of the Confederacy and the Koprulu sector, but as a new empire rises from the ashes of the past and alien invaders threaten the very existence of humanity, what will the future hold for the next generation?

Proberbly the best of the StarCraft novels. This book drags all the way to the end, with too much mengsl, uninteresting action and long dialogues. The writing, too, is atrocious in places.

Okay, I might be slightly biased here because I read this after Flashpoint mejgsk, where Valerian really shines. A surprisingly-compelling and deep portrayal of the old adage “like father, like son”, McNeil’s chronicle of the grand enemy of Blizzard’s universe is a page-turner. It was also a story of generations, which I wasn’t expecting, but which was also done very, very well.
