I think it's safe to say at this point that there is no revision coming. The franchise (as of this writing) is on life support. The Milky Way universe was left in the dust years ago, notwithstanding the reaction to 3's ending. It was damage control.
I'm amazed that there are still fans who are clinging to hope for this. It won't happen.
I'll admit, I haven't read the book, but I want to know something about Gillian's death. People seem to take issue with her death by toothbrush, but by and large, even with her biotics, isn't she just a human? A sneak attack with a toothbrush-turned-shiv should be plenty to take down someone who doesn't have any sort of defenses. That kind of thing might be considered absurd with a krogan, but not a human.
I think it's a combination of the absurdity of a toothbrush as a murder weapon (although one hears of much stranger improvised weapons, especially in prison where people have to get creative) and the general way her death comes across as a bridge drop. It's plausible, but that doesn't make it well executed. No pun intended.
Shouldn't Main.Mass Effect Deception redirect to Literature.Mass Effect: Deception?
