    Four New Frontier Books in One!

    House of Cards In the mid nineteen-nineties, the Star Trek universe was placed in the hands of Peter David to begin a new novel-based series with a new captain, crew, setting, and a multitude of new species. A few had been seen before -- both onscreen, as side-characters -- and in some of David's Trek novels geared towards children (the Starfleet Academy series). In doing so, David created New Frontier, and did not disappoint. At all. The series opens on Xenex, a desolate desert world, then runs the gamut of worlds from imperial homeworld Thallon (another species created for the novels, as well as Xenex) to Romulus and Vulcan. Many of the characters are introduced in this, the first novel (almost novella-length), eventually ending in a cliffhanger. Excellent opener to an even more outstanding series. ------------- Into the Void The second book in a series of four introductory novels within the 'New Frontier' series is both character and action-packed, introducing the readers to the Excalibur crew left untouched in the first volume. Excalibur has launched on her mission to Sector 221-G, and her commanders are hard at work sorting out personnel issues ranging from stowaways to the helmsman. But when a refugee transport loses power, it's Excalibur's job to save the ship -- and the people aboard. 'New Frontier', the first Star Trek series to be centered around non-canon characters, is, in my humble opinion, some of the best Trek fiction on the market. The characters, plots, and characters are all stunningly executed by one of Trek's best authors. ------------- The Two-Front War 'Two-Front War' is the third in a series of three short, interlinked novels designed to introduce the reading world to the 'New Frontier' novels. The refugees Excalibur has protected have come to what they hope will be a happy home on a planet home to a species known as the Nelkar. However, these Nelkar seem to have nefarious plans, and Excalibur's commander, Mackenzie Calhoun, suspects something ill is at play. Meanwhile, security chief Kebron and guest-ambassador Si Cwan are on a mission to find Cwan's younger sister -- which also reeks of subterfuge. A direct continuation from the previous two books, 'Two-Front' continues the bold new tradition of New Frontier. These books, exceptionally well-crafted, are in this reviewer's opinion, some of the best Trek to be found on or off-screen. -------------- End Game The mysterious planet of Thallon is rent with earthquakes amidst political upheaval, and the crew of Excalibur is trapped at Nelkar, forced to resolve its refugee issue before departing to the home of the former Thallonian Empire to retrieve its missing crew. Meanwhile, the dark pasts of the crew seem to be catching up with them. The final book in the introductory four-book series, 'End Game' ends readers' first view of 'New Frontier' with a literal bang -- and a hell of a good finale.

    One of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading

    As a author and a avid reader, I found this particular series of books fascinating. I have always enjoyed the Star Trek series, but I believe it has been taken to new heights with the The New Frontier. The story line is powerful and gripping and the characters were easy to feel for. I look forward to more opportunities to read such wonderful material in this series.

    Nice!

    Starts off slow, but explains the origins of some of the characters, but it is cool because it involves some of The Next Generation characters, but by the middle of the 2nd book you will be hooked on this new crew, I personally love Voyager due to it in my opinion being very much like the original series in that each episode is very different from the next, and like Voyager, this series has a lot of plot twists, but stays well within the Star Trek universe. Good Book.
