We meet some familiar characters along with the new faces from Discovery and their blending does not feel forced. The story itself is classic Trek and is very good, and I won't spoil any of it for you. Suffice to say that if you're at all interested in Discovery or Star Trek at all, you should read this book. I confess to not having read much of the Star Trek books thus far, so that will certainly need to be remedied.
Anyway, I strongly recommend this book to Star Trek fans and other sci-fi fans.
To people who wish not to judge ST: Discovery hastily: it does not hurt to read it.
To loyal fans sticking to the canon: maybe you have already asked the question that what benefit does it make to add a "family member" to Spock, Sarek or Amanda?
Will tell nothing about the plot, and that says everything about it.
On the other hand, all Shenzhou's crew is fun, we've got a lot of ditails about everyone, Saru is as snarky and moving as ever, and captain Georgiou is as perfect, as any 24th century captain could be.
But the brightest spot in this book for me is character of Michael Burnham, and her relationship and chemestry with young Spock. Mack really nailed it, and I liked every word.
I think it promotes the score to 4, so 4 it is.
Can't wait for another DCS novel, but maybe not a prequel? At least without Pike, ok?

Mack's ST books should be considered cannon.
