From the Amazon description :
Don’t miss this exclusive origin story of Sojourn–the fierce, cybernetic soldier, commander of Overwatch in days past and a steward of its future–based on the smash-hit video-game from Blizzard Entertainment.
In the early days of the Omnic Crisis, there were few heroes to be found amid the devastation, or even on the warfront that pushed humanity to the brink. But in Toronto, a brilliant young captain named Vivian Chase refuses to cede her city to the hungry monsters pouring out of the Detroit Omnium. Vivian has yet to meet a lost cause she couldn’t save, even one as dire as this.
To expel the omnics from her home and staunch the flow of enemy forces into Canada, Vivian will need resources, and these days only one organization has what it takes to stop the invasion: Overwatch. But when the Overwatch Strike Team arrives, it isn’t quite what she had in mind–an American supersoldier at odds with his commander, a disgruntled Swedish engineer, and a brilliant scientist whose dreams of a robotic revolution were in part what caused the Crisis. In a race against time, Vivian will have to use what she’s been given to form an elite fighting force and a winning strategy that can take the fight to the omnium . . . even if it costs them all their lives.
Sojourn’s story puts the sheer devastation of the Omnic Crisis–one of the most momentous events in Overwatch history–into stark relief. Her tale is one of grit, heroism, and the fight to build a better tomorrow, even if it’s one she and her troops might not live to see. A must-read for any Overwatch fan.
I’m really hyped about this one. I found “Hero of Numbani” forgettable and “Deadlock Rebels” was ok but didn’t touch what really interests me: the story of the Omnic Crisis and Overwatch’s original team. Now it’s seems we’ll learn about it through Sojourn’s eyes and from the description it seems we’ll also learn more about the conflict between Morrisson and Reyes.
I’m both eager and afraid because I thought the last lore additions (Reaper’s short story and Kiriko as a whole) were quite weak.
Anyone else waiting for this book?
