Reviewer : fabio Rating : 5
Review : a superb book by deCandido, good action and adventure if you like klingons you MUST buy this
Reviewer : dbs Rating : 4
Review : This is both a great action piece and a fascinating look into life in the Klingon Defense Force. The characters are quite well done and believable Klingons, with a few cameos of more regular characters. This book also offers a wonderful look into Klingon society, with some emphasis given to the Order of the Batleth and how conquered races fit into the Empire. I would have liked to see a little more use of the setting as a foil for the Federation characters we are used to. Aside from the passing comment, there is little to compare the two cultures, and without some prior knowledge of Starfleet and the Federation the parallels and differences are harder to spot. This is only the most minor of complaints, and in retrospect more of that description would probably have hurt the story-line. Overall, it is a fast-paced, engaging book, traits of the excellent writing and storytelling I have come to see as hallmarks of DeCandido's work, which for Star Trek has thus far been superb.
