    Summary

    Shepard isn't conventional, she knows that.
    It's why her best friends are the most flirtatious turian alive, the most sarcastic man she's ever met and a krogan who intimidates nearly everyone he meets. It's why she doesn't hold a grudge against the turians at all, even though her Dad died during the first contact war. It's why she followed in her parent's footsteps, joining the Alliance, despite her mother warning her against it. She trusts her gut instincts. It's why she risked an Alliance mission to save a single alien, and why she readily accepted another's offer to join her crew, after only speaking to him twice.

    Garrus isn't conventional, he knows that.
    Despite working hard during his military service, and following in his father's footsteps when he joined C-Sec, as was expected. Despite his career being successful and advancing quickly. Despite being considered quite the eligible bachelor. He's a bad turian. He chaffs against the red tape and politics of his job. He finds no satisfaction in it or the company he keeps. It's why he doesn't hesitate to offer his services to the striking alien on her mission to do what he couldn't. It's why he'd follow her into her human hell and back.

    In this first volume, Saren and the geth race to find the Conduit, starting the new cycle. Can Shepard beat them to it?

    Summary

    Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary. They are made by the path they choose, not the powers they are graced with. Someone who steps up, when everyone else steps down... and everyone has an opinion on them, especially when they're as striking as a certain Commander Shepard.

    Summary

    Lessa Shepard never followed in her mother's military footsteps; she chose a life of books and study. But destiny has a funny way of forcing your hand; Eden Prime was never going to offer her the quiet life she claimed to want.

     

    In fact, it was never going to end any other way than at the top of the Citadel with trillions of lives in her hands.

     

    A mass effect novelisation that spans all three games and will get very dark.

    Summary

    It was supposed to be a one-night stand. No names exchanged, just a chance for Jane Shepard to experiment with a turian who wasn't her life partner. Hell, Nihlus had even encouraged it. But after the shitstorm on Eden Prime, the handsome stranger with the bright blue eyes was thrust back into her life, this time with a name: Garrus Vakarian. Forced to team up to find proof of Saren Arterius' guilt, they wind up stuck together in a galactic journey to understand the mysterious Prothean tech uncovered on Eden Prime. Run-ins with quarian refugees, asari scholars, mercenaries with a personal vendetta against Saren, and Alliance marines ensue. And all the while, Shepard and Nihlus find themselves drawn inexplicably closer to Garrus, and he to them.

    Alternative timeline/canon divergent ME1. Follow-up/companion piece to Diplomatic Relations, though you don't necessarily need to have read one to enjoy the other.

    Summary

She was going to lose friends, comrades, allies; but that's how war was. Only, no one was ready for this war. Not the Alliance, the Council, nor the crew of the Normandy.

    But if anyone can save the galaxy, it's Shepard and her team.

    Summary

    Shepard's Mission out in the Omega system goes wrong, Nihlus is worried. "It was only supposed to be a routine misson!" yelling at Anderson. Lots of sadness, and tears, the Normandy is lost. Everyone believes that Shepard is dead including Nihlus until he gets a message from Tali one day. Told from Nihlus's POV. Rated Mature for language and possible usage of the 'F' word.
