Sent to the icebound planet of Nordstral to investigate a
mysterious outbreak of insanity, the crew of the U.S.S.
Enterprise find themselves drawn into another, even
deadlier mystery upon their arrival. A team of research
scientists has disappeared on Nordstral's frozen
wasteland, leaving no clue to their whereabouts, and no
hint of their fate.
While Uhura and Chekov tackle the mystery
surrounding the scientists' disappearance, Kirk and
McCoy search for the truth behind the outbreak of
mental illness. But both teams soon find themselves in
danger, as the planet undergoes a series of massive
earthquakes and electromagnetic disruptions. Unable
to contact the U.S.S. Enterprise, both teams must fight
for their lives as they try to solve the mystery of
Nordstral - before the world tears itself apart!
This novel has a much more believable storyline
and I enjoyed it very much.
There isn't any of that "save the entire universe" stuff
that so many books have. This type of story is more
like what they did during the series.
Here's a bit of trivia you may not be aware of:
L. A. Graf isn't a real person, it's a pseudonym used by
Julia Ecklar, Karen Rose Cercone and Melissa Crandall, although
Melissa Crandall collaberated on this novel only.
L. A. Graf stands for: Let's All Get Rich And Famous.
Hmmm... very interesting ... and it's TRUE!
