The latest Mass Effect tie-in novel, Deception, goes on sale on January 31. Although penned by William C. Dietz, it continues the storyline of the previous novels written by Drew Karpyshyn, and focuses on Gillian, Grayson’s Biotic ward. No word on whether David Anderson, the only character to appear prominently in both books and games, makes a return as well. You can read an extract on the BioWare Blog which may answer that. Mass Effect 3 is due in March on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, if that somehow slipped your mind despite being hardcore enough to have read three tie-in novels already.
