Book Review: ‘Hell’s Heart’

Star Trek Prey: Hell’s Heart is the first book in the epic crossover trilogy by John Jackson Miller, which was released in September of 2016.

When I picked up this book back in 2017, I hadn’t really read many Star Trek books (possibly none, if memory serves correctly). So picking up an epic crossover trilogy, with characters from multiple series and eras intertwining should have been daunting, but it really wasn’t. Why? Because John Jackson Miller does a fantastic job explaining relevant information to the audience.

Book Review: ‘Takedown’ by John Jackson Miller

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Takedown is a standalone novel featuring the crews of the Titan, Aventine, and Enterprise-E, written by John Jackson Miller, and released in February of 2015. 

I’ll start out by saying that this was the first Star Trek I ever read back in 2017. I had watched some of the shows, but didn’t know where to start in the literature. I’ve been a longtime fan of John Jackson Miller’s Star Wars novels, and I listened to an interview (here on Roqoo Depot of all places) where he discussed how he makes every book he writes introductory. He knows that every book is someone’s first, so he actively tries to give them the relevant information to start. I always admired that and thought I’d jump in. This truly is an excellent place to jump in, and it’s had me hooked on Trek literature ever sense.
