Heartland . . . a mysterious planet populated by a small
but terrifying race of demonic beings.
Heartland . . . where Captain Kirk falls in love with a
beautiful, mysterious woman with a fatal secret.
Heartland . . . where Kirk, Spock and the rest of the
Enterprise crew will be challenced by an awesome
disembodied intelligence, more powerful than any
other force in the universe!

Captain's Log, Supplemental
In a state of severe shock, Mr. Spock has been
permitted to beam back aboard the Enterprise -
the rest of the landing party and I remain stranded
on Heartland. I am convinced that they only person
who can help us is Jacob Kell, the man we came
here seeking. His years spent alone here have made
him capable of somehow communicating with whatever
force rules this planet, the force that has struck
down two of my crewmen . . . the same force that drove
all but one of this planet's original 100 colonists
It's difficult to recall some of the early novels
and this is one of them. I hope to re-read it one day
so that I can post a proper review.
Until then, I'm going to give it 2 stars,
which is about average for the early novels.
