SciFi Book Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation: Collateral Damage

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Collateral Damage by David Mack

Synopsis:
The past returns to haunt Captain Jean-Luc Picard—a crime he thought long buried has been exposed, and he must return to Earth to answer for his role in a conspiracy that some call treason. Meanwhile, the U.S.S. Enterprise is sent to apprehend pirates who have stolen vital technology from a fragile Federation colony. But acting captain Commander Worf discovers that the pirates’ motives are not what they seem, and that sometimes standing for justice means defying the law….

Review:
Collateral Damage follows the recent line of Star Trek: The Next Generation novels, post TV series. Following the Section 31 coup, Captain Picard is indicted and put on trial. So, Worf commands the Enterprise as they rush to assist various outposts under attack. The Nausicaans want revenge for losing their homeworld to the recent Borg war, which they blame on the Federation.

This latest novel was a lot of fun. The suspense of the trial was well-paced and didn’t get bogged down. And the Nausicaan storyline was surprisingly poignant as well. The highlight, for me, was a subplot narrated in first person by Okona (from the TNG episode “The Outrageous Okona” played by Billy Campbell.) Which, of course, made me want to rewatch the episode. Okona is a funny, brash, and flirtatious scoundrel – perfect for comedy relief. Events build to a surprising ending that I didn’t expect from Worf. With legal drama, espionage, danger and suspense, and a bit of humor – this was another solid and exciting installment in my favorite series.

Fantasy Book Review: The Revenge of Magic: The Last Dragon

The Revenge of Magic: The Last Dragon by James Riley

Synopsis:
Fort Fitzgerald can’t stop having nightmares about the day his father was taken from him in an attack on Washington, DC. In these dreams, an Old One, an evil beyond comprehension, demands the location of the last dragon. But other than some dragon skeletons dug up with the books of magic on Discovery Day, Fort has never seen a dragon before. Could there still be one left alive?

And weirdly, Fort’s not the only one at the Oppenheimer School having these nightmares. His new roommate, Gabriel, seems to know more than he’s letting on about this dragon as well. And why does everyone at the school seem to do whatever Gabriel says? What’s his secret?

Fort’s going to need the help of his friends Cyrus, Jia, and Rachel, if he’s going to have any chance of keeping the Old Ones from returning to Earth. Unless, the Old Ones offer something Fort could never turn down…

Review:
The Last Dragon is the 2nd installment in The Revenge of Magic series. Fort has a plan to get his father back, but keeps it a secret from his friends which drives a rift between them. Gabriel is a mysterious, new character. And we finally get a closer look at the Old Ones and where they come from. This installment answers a lot more questions and amps up the danger and suspense. The last novel was a good foundation for the characters and school, but the story really takes off in this book. It’s fast-paced and full of mystery, magic, and drama. This is a very fun and exciting story for Middle readers on up. And the next in the series can’t come soon enough.
