The Cylon Death Machine by Glen A Larson and Robert Thurston (Battlestar Galactica: Book 2)

4/10 Disappointing at best.

A vast and ancient starship probes the universe for the legendary lost planet "Earth."

Having watched the modern adaptation of the TV series with a sense of awe, I waited with bated breath for the books to arrive in my door to get sucked in, but I have to say it was disappointing at best. I found all the usual characters there: Boomer, Apollo, Starbuck, but they just seemed to lack the hook that the TV series had. This particular storyline was about a rescue mission (rescuing Starbuck and another junior member of the team) when they went to investigate what looked like a Cylon free zone. The two boys end up being captured and taken to a frozen planet where the Cylons were.

I had difficulty keeping track of what was going on and the story didn’t create a clear picture in my mind- like a movie playing.

Overall I would give this book a 4 out of 10.
