While waiting the release of the new "Star Trek" film, I found myself yearning for a new adventure of the classic crew. Enter Kevin Ryan's latest installment of the "Errand of Fury" series, "Sacrifices of War."

The series is part of Pocket's on-going attempt to have "Trek" novels that boil down to little more than crew comes across problem, crew solves problem, crew head on out for more adventures. I commend them for this and it's been remarkably successful in a lot of the other on-going "Trek"

"Sacrifices of War" is the final novel in Kevin Ryan’s “Errand of Fury” Trilogy, which in itself was a sequel to his earlier “Errand of Vengeance” Trilogy. In this novel, we see that time has finally run out and both the Federation & Klingon Empire are truly teetering on the brink of war. The story is split into two parts with the first section following a Kirk led mission to destroy a Klingon weapon stash to ensure it cannot be used against the Federation. In addition, we get to see some mo ...more

After two rather dry novels the "Errand of Fury" trilogy shows promise with the first half of its concluding installment "Sacrifices of War". Kevin Ryan reaches his characters in ways not seen since his previous trilogy "Errand of Fury" and his analysis on war and violence is much more original and greyshaded than before. It all builds up to a potentially excellent conclusion. But.

We have already seen how the second Federation-Klingon war concluded in the TV episode "Errand of Mercy". And the se

This is the final book of a six-book series dealing with conflicts between the Klingon Empire and the Federation. It culminates at the same point in the Star Trek timeline as TOS episode Errand of Mercy (the beginnings of the Organian Peace Treaty).

Ryan has epic aspirations, with multiple characters and storylines that arc across all six books. Unfortunately, the books were released years apart and I read them at quite different times, so I often felt like I was playing catch-up. Ryan helps by g
This book is extremely well-written, captures the characters well, has excellent pacing and good action. It suffers a tiny bit from the fact that the main character of the previous two books is gone (having died at the end of the previous book) but gains from progressing from the period prior to an excellent episode from the original series ("Errand of Mercy") to being a novelization of that episode, a novelization which is handled excellently in that virtually every scene from the episode is tr ...more
An exciting conclusion to this six-part saga, expertly penned by Kevin Ryan, leading nicely into a top-notch novelization of one of the most memorable episodes of the original Star Trek. The stakes were high, the characterizations were well done, and I have very little to complain about. The tone of the novel did change noticibly when it transitioned into the "Errand of Mercy" section, so it wasn't quite as seamless as it could have been. But all-in-all, I was very satisfied with the conclusion ...more

Another great read. Extremely well written.
Ehat fun. This has been a good story-ride
A novel built around The Errand of Mercy episode from TOS.

It develops the coming war with the Klingon Empire and Kirk's battles with Kor on the planet Organia. Koloth and Kang make appearances as well.

Good conclusion to the 2nd of 2 trilogies, meshing in with the TV series I remember from my youth.
Satisfactory wrapping up of lots of story lines and an enjoyable read.
