VAN: Storming Heaven by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)



Here we go, then! It's the usual week-and-a-day out, but this one is certainly special, seeing as how it is a type of story that only comes along very rarely in an ongoing line of novels - a well and proper series finale. What's more, David Mack actually gets to finish what he began seven years ago: We're here to review Storming Heaven, his sure-to-be-epic conclusion to Star Trek: Vanguard, co-created by him and editor Marco Palmieri in 2005. At least this one got its seven year run!

Here is the blurb from the Simon & Schuster website:

Vanguard is under siege. Surrounded by enemies, Admiral Nogura sends the scout ship Sagittarius to find an ancient weapon that might be the Federationís only hope of stopping the alien threat known as the Shedai . . . QoínoS is wracked by scandal. Councillor Gorkon fights to expose a Romulan plot to corrupt members of the Klingon High Council, only to learn the hard way that crusaders have few allies, and even fewer friends . . . Tholia teeters on the brink of madness. To prevent Starfleet from wielding theShedaiís power as its own, the Tholians deploy an armada with one mission: Kill the Shedaióby destroying Vanguard.

And another useful link as a bonus, Mr. Mack has recently opened a thread dedicated to discussing the series as a whole once it has run its course. Plus you can find review threads of earlier Vanguard installments in my review thread listing (more coming soon as I'm currently making my way through the series from the start and posting threads as I go).
