This is the 2nd of the Mass Effect Novels and follows on from the end of Mass
Effect 1. It has a gripping, action packed story bringing to light how Cerberus
is pulling the strings of so many in the universe. It also gives you a rare
insight into the Quarion fleet. All the novels and the game fiction is written
by Drew Karpyshyn and these all intertwine to give a fleshed out
If you've read the first novel Revelation and are a huge fan of Mass Effect
than there's absolutely no reason to turn down on this one. Mass Effect
Ascension expands on the mysterious Black Ops organisation: Cerberus, the
Quarian race and continues the story of scientist Kahlee Sanders.
What I thought Ascension did extremely well was paint a vivid imagery of
Cerberus and what exactly they are capable of. It's even worth it just to learn
more about Cerberus and the Quarians. I must admit my views of the Quarians
changed drastically after reading this novel. But these are not all that make
At first I was anxious about the continuity of this novel since this
novel's timeline is in-between Mass Effect 1 and 2, and given the amount of
player choices allowed in the game, somehow it seemed inevitable for
contradictions in the storyline. But you don't need to worry about that, Drew
Karpyshyn has deliberately kept the events of Mass Effect vague so players are
free to interpret the current state of the galaxy accordingly to their Mass
Effect play throughs.
Once again Ascension delivers the enthralling, adrenaline boosting and
gripping effect to keep you entertained every second just like its predecessor
Revelation, and this time a little more dramatic moments also some twists and
turns you'd probably wouldn't expect really spice up the Mass Effect
A nice, quick, easy read. Very handy for filling in gaps and references in
the Mass Effect series. Highly recommended for those who have played Mass Effect
2 and want to know more about Tali's reference to Cerberus and the Quarian
Flotilla, as well as other references to what happened in
If you love Mass Effect then you will love the books (book number 2). This is
a good fast read that will get you hooked so you can't put it down.
