Lost Souls (Star Trek: Destiny, #3)Lost Souls by David Mack

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm not sure whether this book was actually better than the first two in the series, or if by this point I was too invested in "what's going to happen" to be able to judge. But I found myself picking it up at times I normally wouldn't, and read it in less than half the time of the second, which I did in 1/10 the time of volume one.

It's hard to say anything about the "why" without falling prey to the gods of "spoil," which I'm reluctant to do. I still find Picard, Riker, Troi, and Crusher tedious. I still find Ezri Dax beyond annoying. The book didn't have enough Klingons, or Chakotay, or Vulcans to make me happy, though it did increase my appreciation of the Andorians. The book blurb says, in part, "The soldiers of Armageddon are on the march, laying waste to worlds in their passage." Those soldiers are the Borg, en masse, rampaging through the Alpha Quadrant. No race escapes with a whole skin. No one. If you don't like your Star Trek dark, don't go here.

But this is Star Trek--and the adventures continue after this book, after all.
