Very Poor Instalment,
This review is from: Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony (Star Trek) (Mass Market Paperback)
The series started out with an amazing premise and the first novel (Zero Sum Game by David Mack) set the benchmark. Unfortunately Paths of Disharmony was more of a chore than an enjoyment to read. The Andorian conflict and vague reference to Vanguard and the "secrets" therein were far too drawn out for this novel.
One really had to battle through this to the conclusion which could have been portrayed much earlier. The characters had no depth and reminded one of a cardboard cutout. The writer (Dayton Ward) had the chance to throw off the shackles and explore the Star Trek universe more but found himself floundering in a political debate where the reader knew the conclusion before the mid point of the book.
All in all a very poor experience and not worthy of following on from the truly amazing Destiny series.
