Saying that this book is by Shatner is misleading. He has two co-writers on his Star Trek books, Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. They also wrote the excellent book, Federation, that I recently finished reading.You can see their influence in the books. In particular, this book has a lot of nice touches and a lot of the secondary characters are used really well. In particular, this book makes good use of one of my favorite DS9 characters, Garak, the humble Cardassian tailor. The continuity and [...]

Another cliff hanger ending. I was not quite as happy with this story as the first book. Off the top:The secret orginazation is a little much, but Garak, the taylor, from DS9 was refreshing. I liked the wedding, but good grief, couldn't they at least have had a wedding night together? Read it yourself, if you want to know more!Dr. M'Benga was quite a different person in this story than in the first one. Too much of a difference for me. I don't remember Baylok (first 5 year mission character and [...]

Dark Victory see's Kirk, Picard and a veritable host of characters of character storming across the galaxy following the events of the previous books with conspiracies emerging that as first seem unconnected but as the story progresses seem to have more in common and the way that the disparate groups realise this brilliantly handled! :D Project Sign and what they are williing to do is to Teilani is chilling and sets Kirk off on his vengenace/recovery mission! :D Dark Victory is full of action, h [...]

Note: This is a review of the audiobook.This book reads like a radio program version of a Star Trek movie featuring a crazy mash-up of the Original Series, Next Generation, and Voyager.The action starts right away, which was admittedly a bit confusing, since we hadn’t read the first book. It starts with Tiberius and his crew escaping into our own universe, and Kirk and his trying to battle them. Also, Kirk’s hands are mysteriously mangled from something that happened in the first book. Ultim [...]

So I'm giving the same review to all the books in this part of the "Shatnerverse"I basically enjoyed them, being fans of his co-authors, Garfield Reeves-Stevens and Judith Reeves-Stevens.The stories were better than average, and the author / editor team, knew their ST history, touching just about every branch established so far in the "Prime" timeline. I don't remember if there were any Archer era references.It was pleasant, it was entertaining, it did the job. The books mostly moved along, woul [...]

Spoiler-I found this an intriguing book. Kirks' wife to be is poison by a clone child which upsets Kirk. Though retired Captain Kirk is supposed to be already dead this resurrected self indulge man must go on this search to find out whom and why would do this to his bride. Eventually he finds his evil mirror image double Tiberious who is the father of the child who poisons Kirk's bride. Also during the search for Tiberious Kirk learns about *Project Sign* a top secret program for holograph clone [...]

Again, I loved this trilogy growing up, but they have not aged well since then. This book introduces Tiberius, the evil Mirror Universe version of Kirk. This could potentially lead to some interesting developments, but this book plays it boring. There is a semi-interesting scene in the beginning, but then it drags with Kirk getting married, and then nothing happening for the rest of the book. Tiberius is disappointing as a character because he is just portrayed as a megalomaniac. There's not eno [...]

This is the second in a trilogy. The first was Spectre. The third is Preserver. These are by Shatner, along with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, who I imagine did the heavy lifting. These all involve an intrusion into our universe of the Mirror Universe from the TV Show, Mirror, Mirror. Spectre was quite good. It ended with a cliffhanger but had a satisfactory ending to the actual story. This one is weaker. Still interesting but not as strong. There seemed a bit of padding here and there. Th [...]

I'm kind of glad I stuck it out past the first chapter and gave this book a chance. I hated the first part of the book. Shatner's constant self-worshiping Kirk heroics looked like they were on course to ruin this book, but it let up almost completely after the first couple chapters when he introduced us to M'Benga, the great granddaughter of Dr. M'Benga from the Original Star Trek series. She carried the book the rest of the way. There is a third book in this series, but I will probably not read [...]

This is the fifth in a series of six books (actually, two trilogies). This series was my introduction to Star Trek novels, and I very much enjoyed these books. I actually read them out of order by mistake, and then re-read the whole thing in the correct order. Good stuff for the avid Trek fan!(Note: if you think Shatner really wrote these books, you don't know much about publishing. His ghost writers, the Reeves-Stevenses, deserve the kudos here.)

Really not the best of the series, I found the constant references to Kirk's greatness really grating this time and overall the story just felt like it was padding - it's the middle of the trilogy I know, but it felt like the reason for its existence was purely so that the other two books could be part of a trilogy! All that said though, it wasn't terrible, in particular the use of existing characters felt absolutely spot on in most cases.

Middle book to Shatner's Mirror Universe trilogy. Overall, this trilogy is a great story. This book, is good, but a little uneven. The book boasts a big showdown between Tiberius (Mirror Kirk) and Kirk. However, this doesn't really happen, except a few page at the end.

Good Read, sometimes it little convolutedKirk is getting married, then things happen and he's back in space chasing Tiberius and trying to find an antioxidant.So now you've had all the spoilersbut it's still a good read for all that I didn't say.

It's always nice to visit the Star Trek Universe. I enjoyed this book, but I wish I could have found the first and third entries in this trilogy.

The second of Shatner's trilogies dealing with Kirk after Generations. This also brings the mirror universe into play with the good Kirk and Picard in conflict with the Mirror universe counterparts.

Shatner and the Reeves-Stevens have again managed to craft a story of multiple layers of concepts and ideas. Really quite perfect.

Kirk is like John McClane in space. An amusing read if you can just take that attitude.
