Reviewer : ASR Rating : 2
Review : One truly annoying aspect of the recent attempt to make new Trek novels consistent is that there is quite obviously no consistent vision of the universe being represented. DeCandido, for example, puts forth a version of Klingon-ness that is practical, de-spiritualized, and, on several points, rather devoid of real honour. This he attempts to blend with the timeline established in Hertzler's (Martok) two excellent novels, in which the Klingon psyche, especially the interrelationship of their spirituality, history, aggression and honour, is thoughtfully explored. As a result, this Martok who has, in Hertzler's book, found the necessity of careful reflection on the why's of combat and conquest, not to mention a strong imperative to correct the current warped version of Klingon honour, now throws all this progress out the window by advocating large-scale conquest. The comparative shallowness of this series makes all the combat quite tedious.

Review : The excellent continuation of "A Good Day to Die". DeCandido strikes again.
