I have a strange relationship with franchise tie-in novels. They seem to suffer from strange maladies, sometimes of writing and craft, sometimes of plot and character. I don't often read them, but sometimes I'll feel tempted because I've been given a book to read, or one will tickle my fancy against my better judgement. In the case of Devil's Due, my brother ended up with an extra copy and gave it to me, thinking I'd like to get some StarCraft backstory and find it a fun, light read.

Devil’s Due by Christie Golden

A space opera with old fashioned riders of the sage feel, this books provides lightweight entertainment.

Considering how many people love this series I know I am going to tread on some toes. The book was entertaining but seems more suitable for a graphic novel. The characters were more like silhouettes than people. I felt they lacked depth.

One of the best parts of the book was the afterword that gave an overview of the series and a timeline. That was interesting an

Jim Raynor and Tychus may have just hit their biggest’s mark yet...a Confederate cargo train. Jim and Tychus make off with heir goods including Confederate credits and a Jukebox.

To be honest, I am a computer game junkie. Though, I have not played the Starcraft games as much as Diablo or World of Warcraft. So, what drew me to this book was first the cover, I thought it was cool looking, second…the fact that it is based around the game, and third…I read the book summary and thought it sounded goo

If you're familiar with Starcraft universe and, specifically, with Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay, I can promise that you will laugh your ass off. Personally I couldn't stop laughing half the book.

Then came the second half... And everything became much darker and gloomier, but it was still enjoyable. The only thing that bugged me through out the book was somewhat rushed story. Two or three book series would have been so much nicer.

P.S. For full enjoyment, read Heaven's Devils first - references

The sequel to an unnecessary back-story of Jim Raynor, and Tychus Findlay. It ties up the lose ends from the first book, in order to smoothly lead into Starcraft II. However, the opening chapters renders a lot of the previous book pointless. It definitely felt like two different ideas were being presented between the two books. This could be caused by the different authors, or Blizzard changed their minds about the direction of the story.

This take place sometime after Raynor and Findlay's run from Heaven's devil. As the duo run through the sector "liberating" cargo from those who stand in their way. It fills in the hole where Heaven's Devil didn't get to and show where the duo parts way, of course Raynor make sure they get the last laugh.

I thought the main villain of the book got a bit tedious after awhile, and I hated some of the earlier decisions Christie made regarding characters in the last book, but what this book did brilliantly was establish the relationship between Tychus and Raynor in a very personal endearing way. It was similar to reading a cowboy crime novel, only in space and with higher stakes.

I have to like Jim Raynor.That being said, no one else is likeable.Their carousing is overboard and sickening, and overdone "boys will be boys " type deal.
It was a quick entertaining read. Once again , missing love.

It was amusing...but not much beyond that. The writing is SO CORNY and bad it is just plain hilarious. Worth the read if you want to laugh and enjoy the starcraft world. Not worth the read if you don't like campy junk.

This is part 2 of Jim Raynor's and Tychus Findlay's adventures. Really fun book to read since. I especially like how the book contains some artwork in the middle.
**SPOILERS***This was such a fun book to read its a shame there will not be a part 3 since Tychus is no longer alive in Starcraft 3.
Alan Ortega
It was a good background story of Jim Rayner and Tychus findlay's relationship but a very simple story

It was a nice interesting look into Raynor's earlier life.

The fall of Jim and Tychus's shenanigans. Like the space-outlaw thing. Otherwise didn't really stick with me. Ho-Hum.

Predictable at times but nonetheless fun and enjoyable. The camaraderie between Raynor and Findlay is just mesmerizing. Highly recommended. 4/5
