The Queen of Blades is gone. On the hellish planet Char, Jim Raynor harnessed the power of an ancient Xel’Naga artifact in a desperate bid to stop the zerg Swarm from overrunning the Koprulu sector, and the artifact restored Sarah Kerrigan to her human form. Without their queen to guide and unify them, the Swarm has fractured into several broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector. One of the greatest threats to the galaxy has been neutralized... or so it seems.
Sarah Kerrigan is on the loose. Even without the terrible powers of the Queen of Blades or the might of the Swarm at her command, the former Ghost remains a foe not to be taken lightly. But if the artifact really did set her free, then why is Kerrigan seeking out zerg broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector? What happened to Jim Raynor? Is she still pursuing her quest for vengeance, or has her transformation given Kerrigan a new purpose?
Who is Sarah Kerrigan?
The former Queen of Blades has lost her powers, and without her guidance, the zerg Swarm is in disarray. Kerrigan must find a way to restore her strength and regain control of the Swarm.
He risked everything to bring back the woman he loved, and against all odds, Raynor succeeded. However, Jim Raynor’s trials and tribulations are far from over.
The emperor of the Terran Dominion almost succeeded in eliminating his greatest enemy. Now that Kerrigan has been weakened, Mengsk is sure to try to tie up this loose end once and for all.
In earlier times, the Queen of Blades stored her thoughts and plans in the zerg creature called Izsha. Now the creature serves as an advisor and a source of information to Sarah Kerrigan.
A one-of-a-kind zerg creature, cobbled together from different genetics, Abathur is a genius at manipulating DNA and mutagen to modify the Swarm.
A very intelligent type of queen known as a Brood Mother, Zagara seeks to take over the Swarm in the absence of the Queen of Blades.
