The Speed of Darknessby Tracy Hickman
Synopses & Reviews
Far in the future, 60,000 light-years from Earth, a loose confederacy of Terran exiles is locked in battle with the enigmatic Protoss and the ruthless Zerg Swarm, as each species struggles to ensure its own survival among the stars — war that will herald the beginning of mankind's greatest chapter or foretell its violent, bloody end.
All Ardo Menikov ever dreamed of was to live in peace on the verdant colony world of Bountiful. But when the vicious Zerg Swarm attacked the colony and annihilated his loved ones, Ardo was forced to wake from his dream and accept the brutal realities of a war-torn galaxy. Now a confederate marine, charged with defending the worlds of the Terran confederacy, Ardo must come to terms with the painful memories of his past — and the unsettling truths that may dominate his future.
In the wake of the murders of his fiancTe and family, space marine Ardo Melnikov battles the alien Zerg for control of the planet Mar Sara, only to begin to question the memories that force him to fight, in a chilling novel of betrayal, deception, and space warfare, based on the best-selling Starcraft computer game. Original.
