2329: Now a diplomat for the United Federation of
Planets, Spock agrees to a bonding with Commander
Saavik. More than a betrothal, less than a wedding,
the sacred Vulcan rite is attended by both Spock's
father, Sarek, and a nervous young Starfleet lieutenant
named Jean-Luc Picard.
2344: Ambassador Spock receives a top-secret
communication from the heart of the Romulan Empire.
Decades before, Spock had met and betrayed an
honorable Romulan commander during the so-called
"Enterprise Incident." Now she needs his help to prevent
a catastrophe that could threaten the peace of the
entire quadrant. Spock risks everything by traveling
incognito to Romulus itself, but his covert mission
becomes even more perilous when both Saavik and
Picard cross the Neutral Zone in search of him.
Enmeshed in the treacherous political intrigues of the
Romulan capital, undone by a fire that grows ever
hotter within his blood, Spock must use all his logic
and experience to survive a crisis that will ultimately
determine the fate of empires.
An entertaining story that follows Spock into
the heart of the Romulan Empire.
It came out in the middle of the Shatner novels so the
details are less sharp than they would otherwise be.
I enjoyed it though . . .
