If you are a Star Trek TOS fan, this is a book for you. It's entertaining and, though sad in parts, the story is fast paced and keeps the reader's interest from beginning to end.
What I liked best about this book were two things. First, the novel's story is interspersed with Sarek reading and remembering entries in Amanda's journal. As you read these, you will feel very close to the character and remember the event that sparked the journal entries. Second, near the end of the book, we are introduced to Senator Pardek of Romulus, who becomes a pivotal character in the Vulcan-Romulan story line as seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation. This book serves as a really nice bridge between the outgoing ST:TOS and the incoming ST:TNG. In particular, when I read this section, I found myself saying 'a-ha' because it was very nicely setting up the transition.
If there was any weak spot, it was the story line with Kirk's nephew, Peter Kirk and his Klingon consort. While this does play into the story fine, it almost seems as though it was put there to give Kirk a reason to exist in the story. I believe the novel could have been written without this character arc and it still would have been successful.
All in all, a successful effort by A.C. Crispin, who has written many other great Star Trek novels.
This was an excellent book. It's the first book I've read in a long time that had made me cry. Crispin captures Amanda so perfectly both in her character and through her journal entries. The plot of the novel is good; the characterization of Amanda is better. It makes the novel.
Thank you for such an enjoyable read.
