Gods of Night



Gods of Night, by David Mack

The first in the Destiny series, and I'm back to my ST reading after about two months of other books.

There's been a run up to the Borg being active again in a major way and this series is when they make themselves known. The action jumps around between the Enterprise, Titan, and Aventine, with flashbacks to a very early NX ship the Columbia.

The Borg are attacking in large numbers and they aren't assimilating people any more. They seem to have decided to wipe out the Federation instead. The Enterprise is mostly focused on fighting back and Picard is starting to get a little bit "Ahab"-ish again.

Titan is following what they think might be the Borg's travel method and are investigating that. While Aventine is trying to figure out what they can learn from the wreck of the Columbia. In the flashbacks Columbia has encountered an incredibly powerful, and secretive, race.

All the story-lines do eventually start to show their connections.

I haven't read any of the Titan books so there's a number of new characters there, as well as a couple familiar ones that I'm glad to see again. There are a number of them that seem really interesting so I think I'm going to have to add those books to my list.
