    One thought on “Reap the Whirlwind”

    1. Reap the Whirlwind is the third book in the Vanguard series of “Star Trek” novels.For those who may have missed earlier reviews of the previous novels: Vanguard is a Federation starbase in the Taurus Reach, a region of space between the UFP, the Klingons and the Tholians. Several years before the opening of the initial volume – Harbinger Star Trek Vanguard 1 – Starfleet discovered what it calls the meta-genome, clear evidence of an incredibly advanced race that had once dominated the reg [...]

    2. The more books by David Mack I read, the more I believe that he is the number one Star Trek writer out there at the moment. Having written one of the most meaningful stories of the Star Trek Universe (the Destiny trilogy) and having made contributions to numerous other Star Trek series, he is, in my opinion, the author who manages to best capture the Star Trek atmosphere. When reading his books I am totally immersed in the story and location. Totally involved in the character progression. Reap t [...]

    3. “Reap The Whirlwind” by David Mack is the 3rd novel in the Star Trek Vanguard series and it really highlights how these novels are getting better and better. The novel is full of engaging philosophical and moral dilemmas set amongst a thoroughly engrossing and enjoyable space adventure. Simply put, I believe this novel and the series in general is proving to be Star Trek at its very best.The story itself picks up several weeks after the events of the previous novel, “Summon The Thunder”. [...]

    4. Well What a ride.After reading the first two Vanguard novels I came away feeling very underwhelmed. The plot was intriguing and the characters had promise but there was far too much set up, too many characters to keep up with and too much padding.This story changed everything. The plot was thrilling and kept me hooked throughout with lots of twists and turns that had me saying to myself "just one more chapter" despite the fact it was 2 in the morning. The characters whilst still too many to keep [...]

    5. I just finished reading Reap the Whirlwind, the third book in the Star Trek Series Vanguard. I know, it's not current news and the book is seven years old now, but I just read it and I think it's worth sharing. Vanguard focuses on events surrounding the Taurus Reach, a mostly unexplored region of space between the borders of the Federation, the Klingon Empire, and the Tholian Assembly. The series is named for Starbase 47, Vanguard, where a lot of the story takes place. The Federation moved into [...]

    6. Star Trek: Vanguard: Reap the Whirlwind by David Mack I think what bothered me about the Vanguard-series up to that point was the moral ambiguity by the SF-characters. T'Prynn and Reyes' actions against Pennington were just despicable. There's no other word for it, even if they might have been warranted by the situation/orders/whatever. And of course, the willful ruination of a person happens in reality "for the greater good", but that's why I read Star Trek because I kind of like to have the il [...]

    7. It's sort of weird when you get near the end of a story and realize that there's nearly another whole book to be read. Not a bad thing exactly, but it was a bit distracting, because after about page 351 the story truly seemed concluded to me, and concluded well. But, you read what is on the page and so I kept going and it was a good little extra novella after the first part, though not as very exciting as the first part of the book. Mack is a very good author when it comes to weaving all these n [...]

    8. The third book in the Vanguard series is full of interesting twists and turns and is most definitely the most exciting instalment so far. It's hard to say too much without spoiling it, but at times its funny, one character makes a MacGyver type escape and revelations abound. It has pretty much everything you'd want from Star Trek even though there is only one character from the screen in it (that I know of) and thats Commander Terrell who'd be a captain in Wrath of Khan. Everytime I read his sec [...]

    9. This is the third book in the "Vanguard" series. The series continues past this book, and there are numerous subplots that have been left hanging, but the initial set of plotlines set in motion in the first two books of the series have been nicely tied up here. There has been some extremely radical character development, surprising in that some major characters have had major shifts in their paradigms. The story is well-told, neatly written and nicely paced, and the conclusions to the plotlines [...]

    10. A lot of payoff in this book for things set up in "Harbinger" and "Summon the Thunder." The Vanguard books have a broader range of characters than a lot of Star Trek installments. Since the crew of a starship character set has been done so many times, it's nice to have something a little different (a journalist, intelligence operative, smuggler, JAG officer, civilian scientist, colonial officials, ambassadorial staff) featured prominently. Vanguard also makes a lot of sense of the Tholians. I'd [...]

    11. This entire series has been such a delight so far. But what happened in the latter third of this book, just blew me away. I totally would have never expected this from anything that has 'Star Trek' on its label, and I love it! David Mack's knack for throwing things out the window and just giving us an epic adventurewith characters that you genuinely care about. I care about so many, even the Quinn/Pennington bromance that's going on. I implore all my friends that might read this review(or anyone [...]

    12. The third book in the Vanguard series is by far the best, and surprise, surprise, it is written by David Mack, the progenitor of this series. All I can say is WOW. the amazing adventure on Jinoteur IV, to the horrific command for General Order 24 on Gamma Tauri IV, to the introduction of Dr. Carol Marcus into the storyline, tying Vanguard to the events of later Star Trek movies, this book is just WOW. A MUST READ, and by far the best in the Vanguard series.

    13. I was going to give this 2 stars, but it partially redeemed itself in the last 50 or so pages. Now I'm not totally dreading continuing the series. It continues doing a fine job of expanding the TOS era of Star Trek, which I really appreciate. However, it was far too scatterbrained with all the different characters and plot threads that never quite come together. This might just be an issue with being a middle book in a series, but I guess I've come to expect a little more.

    14. This book in the series became a bit more dark. You do not often think of Star Trek with many people getting hurt or killed - not the case here. The folks from the Vanguard station run up against beings that are vastly superior in their powers. Decisions are made to sacrifice some for the "greater good" and legality often out weighs humanity. David Mack write well and the characters are done well. This is as story with difficult results but still in the TOS universe and time frame.

    15. I'm hard-pressed to find a problem with this novel. I am a very lenient and forgiving person, so take this with a grain of salt, but I feel compelled to give Star Trek Vanguard: Reap the Whirlwind a 10/10.Full review: treklit/2011/05/r

    16. Wrapping up all the plots introduced in the series, the book is a brilliant example of Star Trek Universe's diversity and David Mack's dexterity in writing for the franchise.

    17. This would have been a good ending of the book series. But since there are 6 more books to come I am really excited to see what will happen next.

    18. Although interesting the plot was bogged down by so many unnecessary characters that seemed to distract from the plot rather than add to it.

    19. Great book by David Mack! I thoroughly enjoyed the action in this one, and took some joy from a.few of the twists

    20. I really enjoy the vanguard series a lot interesting characters and in different. Timeline of Star Trek

    21. Better than the previous two titles in the series. More action and story arcs pretty much resolved. No surprises in the end does make the series a bit of a downer.
