Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)
Read Plagues of Night
, and I'm somewhere between a third and halfway through the book now. It's my first time reading a book cover to cover on an eBook reader -- very different experience. I feel vaguely like I'm on Star Trek
, reading a book from a PADD.
Really liking the novel so far. Gotta say, in terms of narrative complexity, this is probably the most ambitious Star Trek
novel since the Destiny
trilogy. By my count so far, it advances at least 12 major factions' plot arcs from all across the books:
"Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism, as I understand it." - George Orwell, 1946
