Final Reckoning The Fate of Bester Babylon 5 Saga of Psi Corps #3

Based on the hit SF television show this finale to the new epic trilogy finds the Psi Corp's reign of terror reaching new heights and a civil war developing to overthrow Alfred B. This is the third and final book of the Psi Corps trilogy and really concludes the story of Bester no I am not giving anything away as the title sort of does that way before I did Anyway this is the last in the series and to be honest one I came to late in the dayLet me explain while Babylon 5 was airing I was a huge fan yes the effects are dated and the fact that the show was on a budget never distracted what was going on The show now has suffered from unsympathetic editing and failure to embrace the Hi def age however the show itself was a landmark being cited for breaking many genre moulds include as the show which was not afraid to create story arcs As a result the series spawned everything from its own RPG to tie in novels Now this trilogy was not original released int he UK and it took the publisher Ballentine to bring it to our shores So what of the book well I would warn you there are a lot of assumptions made in the book that not only have you read the other two but also you are very familiar with the TV series so for a fan like me its not a problem in fact it makes it all the interesting knowing there are little hints and secrets being uietly slipped out while no one is looking The story reads like its part of a bigger tale which is not only carried over the other two books but also events in other media too But the thing is you are not told this it is assumed so on one hand you are treated to a story which is not bogged down with back stories and explanations and on the other you have one which would be hard to enter if you didnt know what was going on So really I should rate this book lower but you see I did know what they were hinting at so for me I felt like I was part of the secret which made reading it all the fun The uestion is should I go back and read the others in the series and find out about what was hinted at

    When Babylon 5 hit the airwaves back in the 90's its intricate tapestry of ongoing story threads was revolutionary for its time and it drew me right in Story lines dealt with lofty political and philosophical concepts and big things happened regularly that permanently altered the character dynamics of the show But even though the show ran for a full five seasons one particular story line was never really resolved by t
