Very fun read. It is actually quite important in the understanding of both Saren (from ME 1) and the individual that will come to be called the Illusive Man (ME 2 and 3). It did fill in the gaps in left in the video games and actually made me care about characters I never thought I could. The art was good, but it's really the writing and story that will keep you turning pages. Recommended (if not mandatory) for any Mass Effect fan!
