Starcraft: The Dark Templar Saga
The Starcraft series of computer games is a ton of fun, and these novels really bring the universe to literature in a great way. Set between the two games, The Dark Templar Saga is about an archeologist who finds himself suddenly burdened with the entire history of the Protoss race. He comes across one of the dying aliens, and has all the memories transferred into his consciousness so they can live on. It is seriously a must-read trilogy for fans of the games.
