Battlestar Galactica: The Cylons’ Secret, by Craig Shaw Gardner was a surprisingly fun book. I had reservations, as it’s been a while since I’ve watched the new show. But with the first chapter I was hooked.
The Cylons’ Secret is a prequel to the new Battlestar Galactica series. It not only gave a little bit of background on a few main characters, but also had an exciting plot.
Set years after the Cylon War, where the Colonial’s artificial intelligent machines revolted, a raider ship stumbles upon a long-forgotten station where humans and Cylons seem to co-exist. But all is not as it appears. And when the Battlestar Galactica comes to investigate, a young William Adama must uncover the secrets before it’s too late to save them all.
Gardner did a wonderful job of developing an exciting and suspenseful story with diverse and interesting characters. This was a fun and fast-paced read that any fan of science fiction should enjoy.
I’m looking forward to reading the next Battlestar novel by Peter David: Battlestar Galactica: Sagittarius Is Bleeding.
