I picked this book up on a whim at the library, not really realizing that it was the fourth book. Since I'm in the middle of a rewatch of the show, and it just so happens I'm right in between episodes that this book occurs, I thought it was fine to read them out of order. I didn't start the book with really any expectations, so I was pleasantly surprised. It did a really good job at involving the large main cast of characters and the characters all felt like themselves. I think the only thing th ...more

Not a bad story. The author could have cut back on the giant paragraphs of detailed exposition without losing any part of the plot, and some of the dialogue was stilted and awkward, but I've read worse.

Not bad. This fits smoothly into the Galactica mythos.

This book reminded me how much I miss the show. I enjoyed reading this. Though I wasn't too sold on Starbucks personality in the book. I just couldn't see her with a "pop star" and I don't remember anything about her dad in the show so that was strange to read about him in the book. But overall it was a good read. I'll probably look for more books about the show so I don't miss so much. Hopefully they're just as good or even better.

This wasn't a bad book and I could see this book being in line with the show and how it could have been an episode for the most part. It was an easy read and I think I did it in a week or something. The plot is pretty good and it does fit in when it says it takes place from the show. So that is good.

The weakest of the trilogy. It didn't add anything to the series. At least the other two went into back stories that explained why things were the way they were. I wouldn't bother reading this, unless you were like me, dying for more BSG reading material.

This novel read like the script to a rejected episode, and one I'm glad we never got to see. While the show was great, if this novel is representative of the other extended universe stuff, don't bother wasting your time. It only gets two stars because I'm feeling generous.

Fun read for BG fans. I could totally see this book as an episode. The author writes very visually and the writing was really light and quick. Fun read.

1 1/2 stars.
Pretty well written. Had a hard time putting it down. However, after finishing this book, I kind of wish this would have been a real episode of Battlestar Galactica.
A solid book. It would have made for some decent episodes on the show. There were a few typos which annoyed me. Publishers, kindly proofread a little better? Hire me.

This book explains the folks who showed up in Season 3 with red scarves. If I hadn't read this book, I would have had no clue as to the role the cult is playing.
