Tor Books has released Dead Space: Martyr, the first novel based on EA and Visceral Games’ Dead Space franchise. Written by B.K. Evenson (Last Days, The Open Curtain), Martyr fills in the back story of the first two titles by delving into the origin of The Black Marker and the foundation of the Church of Unitology.
The story revolves around Geophysicist Michael Altman’s discovery of a strange artifact in the Chicxulub crater. He soon learns that being in close proximity to the artifact causes those exposed to have visions of the dead, vivid dreams, and commit violent murders. Altman’s experience with the artifact kicks off the Dead Space tale.
