Book Review: ‘The Hall of Heroes’

Star Trek Prey: The Hall of Heroes is the third and final book in the epic crossover trilogy by John Jackson Miller, which was released in November of 2016.

John Jackson Miller is the master of promises and payoffs. No matter what the project, you always know what you are getting and you always get what you’re promised. This trilogy promised to be an epic Klingon “opera”, filled with intrigue, action, character development, and more reveals than you can shake a bat’leth at. You get all of that and more in this exciting conclusion.

I remembered the events of this book the least of the trilogy while I was rereading it, and so there were several moments where I was yet again pleasantly surprised. You know that John Jackson Miller does not indiscriminately kill off characters like David Mack, and yet he is still able to add enough suspense to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. I certainly was. This book has tons of action, perhaps even more than the first two books do, and it manages to never feel dull or repetitive.

Book Review: ‘The Jackal’s Trick’

Star Trek Prey: The Jackal’s Trick is the second book in the epic crossover trilogy by John Jackson Miller, which was released in October of 2016.

Hell’s Heart set a high bar for excellence, and so it is natural that the sequel will struggle to live up to the heights of the original. And yet, The Jackal’s Trick is different enough that it doesn’t suffer from “middle book syndrome”, and in fact has an even better climax! 

What sets this book apart from the first is it’s focus. This whole trilogy is about the Klingons, and the Klingons are obviously still the overall focal point. However, this book focuses the brunt of it’s time with the principal antagonist: Buxtus Cross. Cross is the illusionist we met in the previous book, who works for Korgh and in this book breaks all hell loose. He was such an interesting character, as was his crew. The crew reminded me of the best “rag-tag” crews of various aliens that one would read in any great science fiction story. Cross himself was interesting in that he cared only for the story and for the acting. He didn’t care about the consequences (although money is always nice), and to him seeing how far the deception could go was reward enough. He’s just so unique and fun and yet exactly what this middle book needed.
