To say that Destiny
and The Never-Ending Sacrifice
were the last quality Trek novels is to speak in ignorance of such excellent novels as:
- Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by David R. George III
- Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn by David R. George III
- Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts of Empire by David R. George III
- Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game by David Mack
- Mirror Universe: The Sorrows of Empire by David Mack (expanded edition)
- Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions by David Mack
- Voyager: Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer
It's all opinions though isnt it? I've read all those books you mention and in my opinion only Zero Sum Game and the two mirror books even come close to "excellent" and even then I wouldnt put Zero Sum on that rank.
So really, just because you disagree, doesnt mean the person you quoted is "ignorant" of any books because he doesnt rank them as greatly as you do.
