Mass Effect: Revelation - Drew Karpyshyn ... the technology of the Protheans, an ancient species that vanished fifty thousand years ago. After discovering a cache of Prothean technology on Mars in 2148, humanity is spreading to the stars, the newest interstellar species struggling to carve out its place in the greater galactic community. On the edge of colonized space, ship commander and Alliance war hero David Anderson investigates the remains of a top secret military research station: smoking ruins littered with bodies and unanswered questions. Who attacked this post, and for what purpose? And where is Kahlee Sanders, the young scientist who mysteriously vanished from the base hours before her colleagues were slaughtered? Sanders is the prime suspect, but finding her creates more problems for Anderson than it solves. Partnered with a rogue alien agent he can't trust and pursued by an assassin he can't escape, Anderson battles impossible odds on uncharted worlds to uncover a sinister conspiracy - one he won't live to tell about. Or so the enemy thinks.

For fans of TV tie in novels there is only one group that we can look down upon. We know that our books are churned out to make quick cash from a few hardcore fans, but even we know that we are better than this group. Most tie in novels based on shows such as 'Star Trek' or 'The X Files' etc have not been great, but at least they are populated with characters we know well and are interested in. This is more than can be said for fans of game tie in novels. The success of titles such as 'Halo' and 'Assassin's Creed' has meant that book publishers have contacted games designers about writing some books.
