The Cylon Secret

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.

  1. I haven’t watched the show, I know everyone says it’s great… I just don’t watch a lot of tv… and I don’t have cable. oh well. The book does sound good though! sounds like a good story line.

  2. Peter David wrote some fantastic Babylon 5 novels (and some great episodes of the series), the Centauri Prime Trilogy, excellent if a fan of the series.
