The sequel does a very nice job of completing the series, without losing it's pacing or running out of content. I did enjoy the 2nd book a bit more than the first; it was nice to see all the protagonists come together half way through the book, instead of a mash-up right at the end. I was also grateful that the 4th story arc took a different turn than the other 3; the same basic outline would not have worked 4 times in a row for me.

The antagonist did seem a bit too two dimensional, and I would h
Two more eras of Star Trek complete the set of books based on a culture who had created four deadly artifacts. I found the Voyager section (which was first, not second, as I had assumed it would be) made me miss the show a little. For the final section (TNG) I wasn't so certain about the all powerful artifact everyone was so afraid of. A mind control device should have been very threatening... but it really wasn't. I felt more worry over some of the other devices in some of the other timelines. ...more

Although I have rated each book of this series at 4 stars, I have to say that this one was noticeably the better of the two; while book one was closer to three stars than five, this is just the reverse. If you're going to read just one of these two books, it should definitely be this one rather than book one; entirely aside from the fact that one can much more easily do without reading book one, and treat the events there as "offscreen" background to this book than one can deal with missing the ...more

Another short review, but I followed Book 1 up with the sequel. DeCandido does a fantastic job of following up his story, and keeping it engaging and entertaining, even though by this point we know what's coming at the end of each section.

Keith DeCandido's The Brave and the Bold duology started off intriguing, then grew a bit fallow in the middle sections, but then came back with one of the best slam-bang fan-wank-y finishes I've yet read in a Star Trek book. Klag and the crew of the IKS Gorkon are definitely the best thing to happen to Trek literature since Captain Calhoun's journeys started, and I look forward to adventures focusing solely on them in the future.

Keith R. A. DeCandido concludes his crossover tale weaving together the adventures of Archer, Kirk, Sisko, Picard, and Janeway. The Maquis discover a third weapon, while Picard and Klag of the IKS Gorkon must deal with the fourth and most terrible weapon. This duology is a fun read.

Published in mass market paperback by Pocket Books.
Two more stories based around the remaining 2 artifacts. The Tuvok one was decent, telling the story of how he joined the Marquis. The 2nd story feels a bit like fanfic, Spock and Worf team up, the Gorkon crew is highlighted. Anyone expecting much of the captains pictured on the cover will be disappointed. A good read.
This book probably would have made more sense to me had a read book 1, or had I planned to read book 3. But when free books are thrown at me, I can't help but read them.
