Book Review: ‘Oblivion’s Gate’ by David Mack

Star Trek: Coda: Oblivion’s Gate is the third and final novel in the Coda trilogy, which was written by David Mack and was released in November of 2021. 

Twenty years of Star Trek literature has led to this. Titan, DS9, Voyager, Aventine, Next Generation, Mirror Universe, Section 31, and more have contributed to what we have known as the Lit-Verse or Post-Nemesis line of Star Trek novels. We all knew it was coming to an end in this trilogy, and thus knew to gird our feelings…

…but did we know it would feel like this?

Book Review: ‘A Time for War, A Time for Peace’ by Keith R.A. DeCandido

November 30, 2021 at 7:11 am | Posted in Books, Reviews, Sci-Fi, Star Trek | 1 Comment
Tags: , ,

Star Trek: A Time for War, A Time for Peace is the ninth and final novel in the A Time to series produced by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster and was written by Keith R. A. DeCandido and was released in October 2004.

The A Time to series had a rough couple of books at the beginning. It has some epic moments, but it failed to truly stand out from its predecessors. It made many promises, none of which came close to fruition until the end. The middle books were slightly better, but still missed a certain something. However, the last three books, written by David Mack and Keith DeCandido were absolutely fantastic. This book follows A Time to Kill and A Time to Heal very well.
