Book Review: ‘Immortal Coil’ by Jeffrey Lang

Star Trek: Immortal Coil is a Next Generation novel heavily centered around Data, A.I., and lots of Star Trek history. It was written by Jeffrey Lang and was published by Pocket Books in February 2002. 

If you love Data, then this is the book for you. Data takes the lead in this novel as the Enterprise crew must solve a mystery involving Bruce Maddox and an accident that occurs at his laboratory. 

I went into this book expecting a more ethereal, philosophical look into androids and into Data’s history. That seemed to be the pitch of the book from the blurb and also what word of mouth on the book was. Instead, this book is actually a fun episode-sized adventure with an android mystery to it. I wasn’t disappointed in the book, as I find those novels much more enjoyable than the scientific exploration ones, but I did feel that the book had false marketing.

Out in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

In this gripping sequel to Star Wars: The Rising Storm, the light of the Jedi faces its darkest hour.

Time and again, the vicious raiders known as the Nihil have sought to bring the golden age of the High Republic to a fiery end. Time and again, the High Republic has emerged battered and weary, but victorious thank to its Jedi protectors—and there is no monument to their cause grander than the Starlight Beacon.

Hanging like a jewel in the Outer Rim, the Beacon embodies the High Republic at the apex of its aspirations: a hub of culture and knowledge, a bright torch against the darkness of the unknown, and an extended hand of welcome to the furthest reaches of the galaxy. As survivors and refugees flee the Nihil’s attacks, the Beacon and its crew stand ready to shelter and heal.

The grateful Knights and Padawans of the Jedi Order stationed there finally have a chance to recover—from the pain of their injuries and the grief of their losses. But the storm they thought had passed still rages; they are simply caught in its eye. Marchion Ro, the true mastermind of the Nihil, is preparing his most daring attack yet—one designed to snuff out the light of the Jedi.
