"It's great, but can you stretch into a 20 volume series of 500 page books? Because that's what we really need." Said the Publisher.

"Sure I can, I just will start the first vol

First off I am going to say that I am not a Christian, but I found this book to be very good. The characters where written in a very provoking and interesting way, while I didn't agree with everything they believed, it only served to make these chara ...more

For a book based on an action game, this had to be the one of the slowest least interesting Sci-Fi books I've ever read.
