StarCraft: Flashpoint by Christie Golden

All visitors who had previously pre-ordered StarCraft: Secret Missions, please, cancel the pre-order. The title has been changed. A few weeks ago, I was told the new title is StarCraft II: Flashpoint by New York Times Best Selling author Christie Golden.

This upcoming book is a StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm expansion tie-in. Thus, I recommend reading it.

The book is slated to ship on November 6, 2012. It contains 336 pages, and it’s currently available in Hardcover format. More formats might become available later (i.e. eBook and/or audiobook).

Amazon just launched the page today. It wasn’t there yesterday. You can now pre-order StarCraft II: Flashpoint.

StarCraft: Flashpoint

    An all-new hardcover based on the eagerly anticipated “StarCraft II” videogame expansion, “Heart of the Swarm”!The Queen of Blades is gone. On the hellish planet Char, Jim Raynor harnessed the power of an ancient Xel’Naga artifact in a desperate bid to stop the zerg Swarm from overrunning the Koprulu sector, and the relic restored Sarah Kerrigan to her human form. Without their queen to guide and unify them, the Swarm has fractured into several broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector. One of the greatest threats to the galaxy has been neutralized…or so it seems.

    Sarah Kerrigan is on the loose. Even without the terrible powers of the Queen of Blades or the might of the Swarm at her command, the former Ghost remains a foe not to be taken lightly. But if the artifact really did set her free, then why is Kerrigan seeking out zerg broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector? Is she still pursuing her quest for vengeance, or has her transformation given Kerrigan a new purpose? Just who “is” Sarah Kerrigan?

  • I told you! 😛

    Still no cover, sadly :(.

  • Christie Golden back to the StarCraft universe… That’s the stuff. 🙂

  • I’m wondering if that artwork showing Kerrigan and Nova one-on-one in battle plays a role in this new book. I know this artwork was only connected with a planned graphic novel, but who knows? 😉

    • Nova is nowhere in this book. I read it cover to cover on December 30, 2012.
