Review: Leviathan Falls

Leviathan Falls by James S.A. Corey My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was a satisfying ending to the series.  I was surprised by the epilogue, but maybe I shouldn't have been surprised? ;-). Of course, Amos was going to make it to the end, one thousand years later!  This book series, to me, is basically about the rise and fall of human empires, and all the humans

Review: Star Trek: Voyager: Architects of Infinity

Architects of Infinity by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars OK, this one ended in a "WTF" moment for me?  Eh... whut?On the plus side, I did remember the Kriotians from TNG's "the perfect mate," which made for an interesting sub-plot in the book.  The biodomes on a dead planet were an interesting main plot, but OMG.  You find an abandoned paradise?

Review: Star Trek Voyager: A Pocket Full of Lies

A Pocket Full of Lies by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars That was pretty interesting!  Tuvok comes back for a special mission and gets an unexpected breakthrough for the stuff he's dealing with.  There's another Janeway (how many of them are around?!) and yes...there are temporal shenanigans happening...so the Krenim aren't that far behind.

Review: Star Trek Voyager: Atonement

Atonement by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Good to see a conclusion to the Paris family court drama, which also parallels the conclusion of the Janeway tribunal drama.  Overall, this was a good story.  For the Voyager kids who've entered the academy, it's also interesting to see that college...errr..the academy isn't the only path forward.From the

Review: Acts of Contrition

Acts of Contrition by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this one. You start off on a diplomatic and negotiation meeting, only to find yourself wanted by Delta Quadrant powers... I am, so far, enjoying the episodic nature of the relaunch novels. I hope that they come to a smooth conclusion, with no dangling threads.From the blurb:Admiral Kathryn

Review: Sta Trek Voyager Protectors

Protectors by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Last book of 2021 😂Interesting story, and interesting to see another federation-type organization in the Delta quadrant but without all the tech of the federation. The story expands upon something (I think) we saw briefly screen. Cool idea, but I do question the "let's stay in the Delta quadrant and explore"

Review: Steal the Stars

Steal the Stars by Nat Cassidy My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was much more interesting than I thought it would be.  Private corporate entities that subcontract for the government and a secret crashed alien? What could possibly go wrong!  The version I listened to was the original podcast version released by Tor.  The prequel story (also a podcast episode)

Review: Children of the Storm

Children of the Storm by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 3 of 5 starsContinuing the adventure of the "armada" of Starfleet vessels as they explore the delta quadrant. It seems like the Children of the Storm were something we saw on screen at some point, but I really don't remember them. Not a bad story, with overtones of Taelons and the Genesis Device.From the blurb: "YOU WERE TOLD NOT TO RETURN TO OUR

Review: Unworthy

Unworthy by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this one.  Seven tries to figure out why the celliear didn't absorb her into the Gestalt and she's trying to figure out what her family is now that she no longer had voyager, her aunt, or the borg.  A good connection to Species 8472 (and this makes me see how the original foe of Star Trek

Review: Full Circle

Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this relaunch of the relaunch series. I didn't expect the Voyager (or the Federation) to be going back into the Delta quadrant so soon, but I can't wait to see where this ends up.  The fleet of ships being prepared gives me mental shades of Battlestar Galactica.From the blurb:When the USS
