When they vanished 50,000 years ago, the Protheans left their advanced technology scattered throughout the galaxy. The chance discovery of a Prothean cache on Mars allows humanity to join those already reaping the rewards of the ancients' high-tech wizardry. But for one rogue militia, the goal is not participation but domination. Scientist Kahlee Sanders has left the Systems Alliance for the Ascension Project, a program that helps gifted "biotic" children harness their extraordinary powers. The program's most promising student is twelve-year-old Gillian Grayson, who is borderline autistic. What Kahlee doesn't know is that Gillian is an unwitting pawn of the outlawed black ops group Cerberus, which is sabotaging the program by conducting illegal experiments on the students. When the Cerberus plot is exposed, Gillian's father takes her away from the Ascension Project and flees into the lawless Terminus Systems. Determined to protect Gillian, Kahlee goes with them, unaware that the elder Grayson is, in fact, a Cerberus operative. To rescue the young girl, Kahlee must travel to the farthest ends of the galaxy, battling fierce enemies and impossible odds. But how will she be able to save a daughter from her own father?

    " An average adventure. Very easy plot and not as gripping as punchy as the first book in the series. Here's hoping Retribution will be better. "

    " Like the other Mass Effect book I only read this one because I knew the story line from the game, since my husband and brother played it all the time before we moved out here for Law School. Anyway it was just something to read. I liked the plot, but the author I think over does his character descriptions just a bit. "

    " Not great, but considerably better than the first Mass Effect book. None of the awkwardly written and out-of-place sexual tension and generally better written. The story was average, but introduced some new characters and I'm curious to see if they will play a role in the next Mass Effect game. "

    " Another fun read for Mass Effect fans. Story takes place in between ME1 & ME2 and returns a familiar character from the first novel ME:Revelation, Kahlee Sanders. Non-stop action from beginning to end & enjoyed how Karpyshyn, the author, focused more on character development & let's you see how the relationships of the characters play out. This story gives more insight and perspective on Cerberus and The Illusive Man, from ME2, as well. With little to no connection to Shepard from the video games this story could stand alone, but it helps add to the overall Mass Effect series. "
