The year is 2494. Almost five years ago, Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay were members of the Heaven’s Devils, an elite Confederate marine unit praised for its nerves of steel and combat expertise. After making a stand against their corrupt commanding officer, the two men were forced to go AWOL or risk being unjustly prosecuted and resocialized.
Now, Raynor and Findlay are outlaws hounded by an unyielding interstellar marshal. Life, however, has never been better. Each day is another chance to pilfer more credits from the Confederacy’s deep coffers. Each night holds the promise of spending their hard-earned profits in bars, brothels, and gambling halls. But a man can only run so far before the law—and his past—catch up with him. . . .
Devils’ Due recounts an unforgettable period of Jim Raynor’s life as he descends into the Koprulu sector’s criminal underworld alongside the street-savvy Findlay. Here, far from his humble upbringing on the fringe world of Shiloh, Raynor will face some of the most trying challenges of his life. The decisions he makes will alter his destiny forever and put his father’s oft-spoken wisdom, “A man is what he chooses to be,” to the ultimate test.
Being a HUGE fan of the video game series, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. And it definitely lived up to my expectations!!
The book starts off with Jim and Tychus doing an old fashioned train robbery. Ok, well not so old fashioned since it takes place in 2525. And its not a train, but a maglev. And they aren’t on horses either. But you get the point.
The action just keeps going from there. I absolutely loved Jim’s fixation on all things “antique”.
This book definitely made me want to play the game right away. So if you are an avid video gamer, you will love this book.
