Excellent - Leaves You Wanting More!

Although slightly darker than Book 1: Gods of Night, Book 2: Mere Mortals retains the excitement, the emotion, and the storytelling excellence that I've come to expect from works by Trek novelist David Mack. The characterizations were genuine and the plot was captivating from page one onward. Mack has an impeccable understanding of the Star Trek universe and uses it to make the book come to life with believable dialogue and detailed narration. For instance, during a triage scene, the meticulous use of futuristic medical-babble made it seem like I was really in a 24th-century sickbay. If you enjoyed the first Star Trek: Destiny novel, this book is for you! (If you haven't read Book 1: Gods of Night, do so before picking up this book.) Enjoyment is guaranteed.

The 2nd in the series is hard to put down

After the events in the first novel, I eagerly downloaded this book to my kindle. This book delivers. This book is well written, David Mack knows what he's doing. The action is good, the plot development comes at a nice pace. The characters almost all interesting, though I cant help but feel a couple of them have lost some personality, that might be on account of the scope of the series. Get this one, and the next one, it really is great.... I'm just not sure why they didnt put them all in one book?

Exellent sequel, suberb series

Star Trek: Destiny, Mere Mortals, could not be a better continuation of the adventures started in book one. As one reads, the details of the story seems to come together slowly, boiling down to a specific idea/climax. The characters are very real, with the author painting an authentic picture of how the Federation would deal with a threat to it's existance.

The greatest Star Trek story of all

Star Trek: Destiny: Gods of NightStar Trek: Destiny: Mere MortalsStar Trek: Destiny: Lost Souls A fantastic trilogy, the best Star Trek story of all. My hats off to David Mack. "bows its head and prays to the mother of all machines"

About Time

After the almost child-like and flat writting in Greater than the Sum I was about ready to give up on TNG works. While not nearly as stupid as the Voyager relaunched it certainly found itself leaning to that simple third grade writing style rather than the rich, compelling and complicated beauty that is the DS9 works, in particular the fabulous Terok Nor trilogy. However, the first two books, Mere Mortals, in particular, have renewed my interest. Well written and impossible to put down, the authors weave a number of stories as they flesh out characters that we can like, dislike or simply believe in. What I found most interesting was the story of Erika Hernandez and her three crewwoman stuck on Axion. It is such a sad, desperate tale that truly leaves the reader feeling for each of these characters and more specifically Hernandez. The writing is great and the stories are well crafted. Each crew and story gets its own time and never seems to long or rushed. While initially suspicious of the Borg storyline (since I feel it has been exhausted and while fine in this one hopefully will end) I was happy to see that while in the background, it really isn`t a focal point. The books thus far are more about the crews and individual characters. About time that we fleshed some of these characters out! Finally, Voyager shows up, and while it is a short appearance at least they weren`t ignored as much as they have been in recent publications. All in all, a great read for anyone.
