TrekWeb’s review of Destiny

Jeff Ayers has reviewed Star Trek Destiny, Book I: Gods of Night for TrekWeb, giving it a 10 out of 10 rating.

The money quote par excellence:

“…the novel focuses on the characters and their preparations for the inevitable fight, elevating the story above the usual fare. Star Trek show fans will find much to enjoy. Fans of the Star Trek books should consider this a gift from the Gods. As far as the first entry in the trilogy is concerned, it lives up to the hype and is one of the best Trek novels in quite a while. Will the next books be as great? I, for one, can’t wait to find out.”

Also, one lucky fan on the PsiPhi Star Trek Books Discussion Board says his copy arrived from Amazon this morning, so don’t delay, folks — order yours today, and pre-order books two and three, Mere Mortals and Lost Souls!

New review of Star Trek Destiny: Gods of Night

Robert Lyons has posted his review of Star Trek Destiny, Book I: Gods of Night over at TrekMovie.com.

My favorite “money quotes” —

“Page after page in Gods of Night is loaded with outstanding narrative, story development, and personal touches that ensure that not even a single letter goes to waste. Mack’s alien creation, the Caeliar, is another ‘impossible for TV but possible in novel form’ race that allows us to truly explore the strange new worlds that all of us dream of at night. They are impressive, vast, and utterly alien, yet their philosophy is, in some respects, the ultimate dream of humanity.”

“If you are a Trek fan that’s been avoiding the TNG relaunch, the DS9 relaunch, the Voyager relaunch, the Titan books, or any of the rest of the current crop of twenty-fourth century Trek literature, do yourself a favor: go get this book.”

Sweet!

Star Trek Destiny: Gods of Night – first review

I’m pleased to report that SciFiChick.com has posted its review of Gods of Night, the first volume in my swiftly approaching Star Trek Destiny trilogy. It’s also the first public review of the book.

The money quote:

Gods of Night contains everything great about Star Trek — advanced technology, intrigue, drama, relationships, danger, action, mystery, aliens, time travel, and blowing stuff up. Ending in a mild cliffhanger, readers will want to pick up the next, Mere Mortals, as soon as possible. With an exciting story, wonderful characters, and insurmountable odds to overcome, this is a trilogy no Trek fan will want to miss.
