MY BROTHER'S KEEPER
REPUBLIC

By: Michael Jan Friedman

Book #1 of 3

Revealed at last, the full story of Jim Kirk's lost friend, the man
who helped him become the captain we know . . .

Stardate 1312.4 - A young Captain Kirk, early in his legendary career,
faces the crisis of his life when he must kill his best friend in order to
save the Enterprise.  Later, alone in his quarters, he cannot help
recalling how he first met Gary Mitchell:

At Starfleet Academy, Gary is reckless and fun-loving while Kirk is
driven, ambitious, but awkward around other people - especially
women.  Their friendship begins with a fist fight.  Then their routine
training mission on the U.S.S. Republic is diverted to a planet
where centuries of bloody interplanetary conflict are about to end
in a ceremony of reconciliation.  Assigned to help with security on
the planet's surface, Kirk and Gary quickly find themselves in the
middle of a life-and-death struggle against terrorists determined
to disrupt the ceremony.

With the future of two planets at stake, Kirk and Gary must find a
way to work together before a mission of life and peace becomes
one of death and despair.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


First, take a look at the date of the last novel then the date
of this novel.  An entire YEAR has gone by!
There used to be a new novel every 2 months!

Anyway . . .

This is a 3 book series that tells the story of the friendship
between Jim Kirk and Gary Mitchell. Strangely enough, I wasn't
very enthusiastic about reading this series when I first bought it.
I'm not sure why, but it took me a while to even start the first book,
but when I did I got a very pleasant surprise - it's fantastic!
I couldn't put it down!

The author has done an amazing job of telling this story.
He has the characters of Kirk and Gary absolutely perfect.
It's wonderful to read about Kirk before he was a "lady's man" and how
Gary taught him to be more confident around women.

You're going to love this one - and there's 2 more in the series!
