The time - six months prior to the launch of the
U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701B and the tragic loss of
Captain James T. Kirk in deep space.
The place - Earth, where the galaxy's most
renowned hero must now face the spectre of
retirement and a life devoid of challenge and excitement.
But in the apparent twilight of his career, Kirk's
path takes an unexpected turn when a
mysterious young woman offers him an
irresistible adventure - a perilous voyage to an
uncharted planet where he will confront the
ultimate threat to the fragile peace between the
Federation and the Klingon Empire, and the
ultimate temptation - a chance to actually
recapture his youth.
Turning his back on his friends, Spock and
McCoy, and hunted by Captain Sulu's
U.S.S. Excelsior, Kirk soon stands alone as
defender of a world of incredible vitality and
sensual beauty where he must choose between
conquering the gravest challenge of his career,
or surrendering to the greatest passion of his life.
This novel begins the most intense story about James Kirk you'll ever read!
And what better person to write it than William Shatner!
(Actually, I suspect the co-authors do most of the actual writing
with Mr. Shatner providing the story details. Sorry Bill).
It truly is an epic adventure that eventually involves
characters from TNG, VOYAGER and the MIRROR UNIVERSE.
Don't worry, that's all I'm going to tell you.
If you're a Kirk fan, as I am, this is a MUST READ!
