Well - what a great series Vanguard has been. And how thrilling that David Mack brings the whole thing to a close with this rousing finale. Written with care and elegance, as always, I found I couldn't put the book down until I'd finished. How lucky we are to have a series that has a proper beginning (Star Trek Vanguard: Harbinger), a middle (all the other Vanguard books) and here, a proper end with Storming Heaven.
Much like Star Trek 6, the book is delicately peppered with allusions to 'endings' and how we all have to move on, one way or another. All the characters we know and love get 'a moment' which I really appreciated, and by the ACTUAL end things are moving so fast you can hardly keep your breath. As always, the original characters created just for Vanguard blend seamlessly with some pre-established 'screen' Trek characters and occasional 'trek fic' characters into a wonderful whole that it's difficult to say goodbye to, but alas, we must.
Obviously, you might not enjoy this as much if you havent read the other books in the saga so do that first (and have great fun doing so!) then come here for the heartstopping finale. I promise, you wont be disappointed.
