Mirror Universe is a dark and twisted reflection of our own, where
Humans and Vulcans live as slaves to a brutal alliance of Klingons and
Cardassians - an alliance long believed to be the creation of one man:
the feared and hated Emperor Tiberius, the Mirror Universe counterpart
of James T. Kirk. But just as Kirk survived his own age to live
in the era of a new generation of heroes, so Tiberius now returns to
fulfill his mad dreams of total domination - not just of his universe,
but of Kirk's as well.
The story begins moments after the dramatic rescue of the Enterprise-E
from a team of Mirror Universe infiltrators, when Kirk finds himself
locked in a deadly battle with Tiberius - an enemy who knows Kirk's
mind as well as he knows his own.
From the nightmarish landscape of the Mirror Universe Earth to the joys
of impending parenthood and marriage to the woman he loves, the
incomparable Teilani of Chal, Kirk is propelled into his most personal
and dangerous mission yet as he fights to uncover the secret of
Tiberius' return, and learn the terrible truth behind the madman's real
plans for the Federation.
With Spock, McCoy and Scotty at his side, and reteamed with Jean-Luc
Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E, Kirk discovers an unexpected
enemy within Starfleet
itself - a mysterious group still guarding frightening secrets from
Kirk's own time. And as Kirk fights to expose those secrets, his
epic search becomes a deadly obsession that threatens all he holds
dear, drawing him inexorably to a stunning conclusion that will forever
change his life and his understanding of the universe.
If you've been reading my
reviews of William Shatner's novels,
then you know how much I've enjoyed this series and this story
is as good as the previous ones.
Tiberius is a wonderful character, everything
that our James Kirk is . . . and isn't!
Another excellent novel!
