A very well thought out read, with very little downtime. I would suggest this for all Star Trek fans, but a must read for fans of the Borg, or Picard. The book makes you think of humanity options with the Borg. All in all well worth the money. The only downside is there are three chapters(maybe they'll fix this) that repeat the same script.

Of all TNG novels this is my second favorite. Has a nice sense of mystery in the beginning, an interesting adventure follows and it has a good ending. Enough said without spoiling it... so if you like TNG, this is a good one.

The book Vendetta is a fairly complex novel by Star Trek standards. The book starts out with a young Jean-Luc Picard still in the academy. One night a mysterious woman appears looking for vengeance on the Borg, for the destruction of her race. Not knowing her motives, Jean-Luc suggests to her that she seek out what is outside the galaxy. The action moves forward when Picard in command of the Enterprise encounters a mysterious ship that feeds on planets for energy. He realizes that this is the same kind of machine encountered earlier by Jim Kirk. The machine is on its way to Borg space. After following the machine Picard realizes that his woman from before is the one commanding the machine which uses planets for energy and is controlled by the souls of the dead race, which are seeking vengeance. He finds out that the previous planet eater was the prototype for the current larger version. As events move forward, there is an epic battle between three Borg ships on one side, and the planet eater, Enterprise, and another ship on the other. The other ships sacrafices itself to destroy one of the Borg ships, the Enterprise defeats another, and the planet eater destroys the third. Meanwhile Picard is on the planet eater trying to convince the woman to forgo her vengeance. She however refuses and accelerates the planet eater to the speed of warp ten, which is sought to be impossible. Chief O¿Brien however, is able to beam Picard off in the nick of time, with the Enterprise having to match the planet eater¿s speed exactly. The planet eater disappears into the vast darkness of space driven by hate and vengeance.
