Book #1 of 3
What's with Kevin Ryan and the titles of his books?
'Errand of Vengeance' and 'Errand of Fury.'
Wow, sounds like he has a few anger issues.
Anyway . . .
I just went back and re-read my reviews for the three
novels in the "Errand of Vengeance" series and
realized I wasn't looking forward to a continuation of the series.
Oh well, enough time has passed so I'm OK with it.
The naming of characters using names of actual people
still bothers me (read my review here) and I found only once
where they referred to Karel as Kell. Proof reading still necessary!
Anyway, all that aside, I enjoyed this novel quite a bit.
We get a look at the battle of Donatu V which Spock mentions in the
classic episode "The Trouble With Tribbles" which I really enjoyed.
Something else I really liked is the book's cover. Scroll back
up and take another look. I've always liked the UFP banner
from the episode "And The Children Shall Lead" and showing
it ripped with a Klingon knife stuck in it is very dramatic!
Kudos to the artist!
