Whenever one of the Vanguard books comes out, I simply have to shut myself off from the world for the weekend and read it from cover to cover. And this one is no different! It takes you on a couple of years and gives you some perspective from Pennington - who I think is my favourite character - as well as Reyes. The plot develops further and once again, I'm left hanging on for the next, and final part of the story!
I think that the Vanguard series has been so good because of the fantastic combination of authors and the mix of science, action and political intrigue. Each small part of the long and detailed story is important and I'm looking forward to reading the whole lot again from the beginning in the next couple of years.
So a request to the "Powers That Be" in the world of Trek fiction. PLEASE DON'T LET THIS SERIES END!! It is without a doubt one of the best things you've ever given us and it would be a shame not to give us more about this fantastic mix of characters and plot!

Characters development was good in the first 2 books of the series but over time I started to actually dislike the characters. I don't believe that was the authors' intention. Many of them changed and in ways that didn't seem "normal". Starfleet career officers just sort of going off the deep end. Drunken pilots becoming sober and almost heroic only to go back to the bottle over one person dying.
By the end of this book I've started rooting for the Klingons.
However my biggest complaint is that the author(s) tend to spend a great deal of time rehashing over and over what happened in previous books (or previous chapters). I wonder if they get paid by the word for I've had to skip 4-5 pages of just rehashing what I already know. It slows down what has already become a very slow story and they seem to be milking this story line into so many books when 3 solidly written books would have sufficed.
If you decide to read this series read the first 2-3 in the series and then call it a day. All the books afterwards are virtually pointless.
The reader is left wondering (as I did) if they missed a book. It was far too jarring, and killed the fun and excitement of the series for me. I had to put the book down (or rather archive it, as it's on my Kindle) and find other things to read.
Maybe someday when I've exhausted my library I'll come back and finish the series, but for me it ended with the previous book.
