Customer Review

on August 24, 2000
Margaret Wander Bonanno demonstrates what so many Star Trek novelists have not -- her ability to capture the voices of the characters we love. Additionally, she successfully brings out the magic of their relationships. So many of the shorter S-T novels jump right into the plot, ignoring character development and the "painting" of the scenery. Furthermore, many are mere sci-fi tales with Star Trek characters inserted, where any other characters would do just as well -- our friends don't speak or act like we know they should. Ms. Bonanno writes as if she knows Kirk, Spock and McCoy personally, and every word is totally believable and within the context of the Star Trek universe as we know it. Margaret's talent for painting with words makes the re-reading of this adventure all the more enjoyable, as I caught more of the subtlety and detail upon the second trip (and third and fourth...!) Finally, the writing is colorful and mature, requiring the reader to stretch a bit (which perhaps explains why younger readers might find the book a bit tedious.) This is, by far, my favorite!
