Star Trek: Raise the Dawn is the penultimate novel in the Typhon Pact series. It was written by David R. George III and was released in July of 2012. 

While the Typhon Pact series has had everything from fantastic entries to utterly dull ones, this book lands itself somewhere in the middle. There are things that I thought were excellently done in this book, while there were other elements that bored me throughout.

In some ways, this book paid off several books of development, particularly the last few by David R. George. While I’ve seen many reviewers discuss how this novel is part of a duology with Plagues of Night, I would argue that it’s more of an end to a trilogy, including Rough Beasts of Empire.
