4.0 out of 5 stars Second Book of Trilogy, 20 Feb 2003

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)   
This review is from: The Genesis Wave: Bk. 2 (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (Mass Market Paperback)
3.5 STARS
The first book in this series was one of the better Star Trek Books I had read, so I had no hesitation is continuing on with book #2 of, "The Genesis Wave". Like many initial installments of a multiple part story the first had an abrupt ending that definitely was a catalyst for searching out the next portion of the tale. The second book left me confused for it appears to end the tale completely yet there is a third book to the series. I suppose that many books can be continued but this second book ended with such finality that I don't know if I will pursue the third.
This book does resolve the beings that are behind the release of the Genesis Wave and they encompass a variety of alien life-form characteristics together with what amounts to the most extreme form of biological warfare. If there have been beings as extremely genocidal as those portrayed in book #2, I do not remember them.
The resolutions presented for the various storylines vary in how clever they are, ranging from the predictable to the disappointing. Taken as a pair of books the story is worthwhile with the first of the two being much stronger. I have no idea how they will transition this to the third installment, and it may be awhile before I find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, 11 Oct 2003
What can I say about this book apart that is very, very good! It is an adventure story of sorts that dosn't lose any of the characters personalities on the way. The Genesis Wave Book 1 is a roller coster ride from almost page one. The story revolves around a phenomena that imediately sets this story apart from other Star Trek novels, in that there isn't some 'bad alien' as the nemisis. This makes the book all the more better, because the nemisis can not be over come by force. It really looks as the Enterprise crew may fail! There is one draw back to this book however. It has one of the most massive cliff hangers that you could ever imagine. If I had to convince any one to read this book in five words, it would have to be these:
"You must read this book!"

If you like the next generation books, this is a good follow up from book one. Only problem is I read it in a couple of days

By A Customer
WHAT A CONTINUATION; A NOVEL IN THE TRUE SENSE OF STAR TREK, A PLEASURE TO READ. THE WAY THE CHARACTERS ARE PORTRAYED IS MARVELOUS.
