I really enjoyed all of them through Spectre
. That's where the series ends, in my personal universe.
I wish more authors of today's books took at least The Ashes of Eden
into account when mining for continuity. There's nothing in it that inherently contradicts any later canon, or anything else in the novelverse AFAICT. It was nice to see an acknowledgement of it in Cast No Shadow
is a decent book in and of itself, but actually Avenger
is my favorite of all the Shatner novels. Spectre
was good, too... but then came Dark Victory
