David Mack stays true to the mirror universe and its ways with Rise Like Lions, a book Mirror Universe fans won't be able to put down and regular fans will quickly get in to. It follows a long Mirror Universe tradition of throwing characters together and threatening or ending their lives with high action elements. Readers should probably have some background on the Mirror Universe novels before picking up this segment, as it is almost a conclusion to the path our familiar universe has taken. Without the background from previous novels, those only aware of the shows might feel a little left out of some of the main points.

This book pulls the fan in with well written characters from many incarnations of Star Trek. The situations that bring them all together are as true to the actual show as the characters themselves are, and while it appears to take us through to the conclusion of things as we know them to be, it also throws out a hint or two of a storyline yet to come. The Mirror Universe fans won't be disappointed, they'll want to soak it all in and then they'll want more. ( )
