Re: Lost Era: Serpents Among The Ruins

SAtR is top two TrekLit on my list. This book is everything I hope for out of TrekLit: gripping story, fleshed out characters, real change happening, even pacing and mind-blowing events.

This is the book that sold me on DRGIII and is probably the one piece of TrekLit I've re-read more than any other (save one).

I don't think any other Trek author has ever waded right into so many initially unpopular Bad Ideas and then nailed each and every one. It's almost hard to believe.
Everything Thrawn says is true. DRG III is a great writer.

I agree - this is a great book. It's in my top ten. Very Clancy-like.

Re: Lost Era: Serpents Among The Ruins

So far, I had not been interested in this book, but the praise here and on Amazon is so unanimous... I just bought it - on a Tuesday, by the way.

Gonna start it later today. Looking forward to see a different Enterprise in action.
