Star Trek: The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses is the third book in The Fall crossover series of books, written by David Mack and released in October of 2013. 

I have heard many times that David Mack is one of (if not the best) Star Trek authors and that this series, The Fall, was one of the best series. So when you combine the best author with the best series, it should be a good combination….and it certainly was!

I’ve read some of Mack’s other books. I read the Destiny Trilogy, which is the epic crossover trilogy about the Borg, and it was fantastic. It wasn’t what was promised, but it was well done. I also read the first few books in his (and Dayton Ward’s) Vanguard series, which I didn’t care for. So overall, I’ve had a mixed bag with Mack.

The Crimson Shadow is the second book in the five book series The Fall which was the epic crossover event in 2013. It was written by Una McCormack and released in September of 2013.

I went into The Fall excited since I’ve heard my Star Trek Book friends rave about it. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with Revelation and Dust, and therefore was nervous about The Crimson Shadow

My fears were unfounded, however, because this is one of the Best Star Trek books I’ve ever read!

This book breaks significantly with its predecessor in that it doesn’t really focus on a main character from the shows or even on one of the ships. Rather, it focuses on Elim Garak, the minor recurring character from Deep Space Nine who is now the Ambassador from the Cardassian Union to the Federation. While he may not be a main character from the shows, his story here is incredibly compelling and will make even strangers to the books endeared to him.

So far, I’ve focused my reviews on Star Wars novels. However, I’ve decided to do a slight deviation for a while to focus on reading some Star Trek novels I’ve been interested in. I’ll be returning to my reread of the Star Wars canon eventually, but a break is nice every once in a while.

Revelation and Dust is the first book in the five book crossover event Star Trek: The Fall. It was written by David R. George III and was released in August of 2013.
