Star Trek: The Fall: The Poisoned Chalice is the fourth book in The Fall crossover series of books written by James Swallow and released in November of 2013. 

While the first entry in The Fall, Revelation and Dust, was lackluster, its follow ups have been wonderful. The Crimson Shadow was one of the best Star Trek books I have ever read, and A Ceremony of Losses was my favorite David Mack book that I’ve read, and made me really excited for the future of the series. My only worry was that all the books, with the exception of a few references to the overall plot, seemed to be stand alone. That has changed with The Poisoned Chalice, which follows up all three of its predecessors and brings the events to a climactic head.

Book Review: ‘A Ceremony of Losses’

Star Trek: The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses is the third book in The Fall crossover series of books, written by David Mack and released in October of 2013. 

I have heard many times that David Mack is one of (if not the best) Star Trek authors and that this series, The Fall, was one of the best series. So when you combine the best author with the best series, it should be a good combination….and it certainly was!

I’ve read some of Mack’s other books. I read the Destiny Trilogy, which is the epic crossover trilogy about the Borg, and it was fantastic. It wasn’t what was promised, but it was well done. I also read the first few books in his (and Dayton Ward’s) Vanguard series, which I didn’t care for. So overall, I’ve had a mixed bag with Mack.
