Mass Effect – The Saga of Seven Suns
A mixture of vast, galaxy-spanning conflict between humans, their alien allies, and unknown forces coupled with frenetic pacing and burning romance, this series will give fans of BioWare’s beloved franchise the cure to their Shepard withdrawals. Our book recommendation for Mass Effect gamers is The Saga of Seven Suns by Kevin J. Anderson
Death Stranding – The Starless Sea
Stick with us on this one. Characters not being honest or telling the whole story, putting together a real-time plot as well as the backstory in flashbacks or discovered information during the journey, themes of relationships, creating bonds and reconnecting people, mystery and action, and a vast landscape set in our world yet modified. For these parallels, if you liked Death Stranding try reading The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern.
