SECTION 31
CLOAK

By: S. D. Perry

They are the self-appointed protectors of the Federation.
Amoral, shrouded in secrecy, answerable to no one.
Section 31 is the mysterious covert operations division
of Starfleet, a rogue shadow group committed to
safeguarding the Federation at any cost.

Once, in order to preserve the galaxy's fragile balance
of power, Captain James T. Kirk carried out a dangerous
mission to capture a cloaking device from the Romulan
Star Empire.  Months later, while investigating a mysterious
disaster aboard a Federation starship, Kirk discovers that
the same technology he obtained for the sake of peace
is being put to sinister purposes.  What the crew of the
Starship Enterprise uncovers will send shock waves
through the quadrant, as Section 31 sets in motion
a plan that could bring the major powers of the
galaxy to their knees.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This is actually book 1 of 4 books in a series called: "Section 31."
The other 3 books are from TNG, DS9 and VOYAGER
respectively, and are NOT reviewed here.
(Mainly because I didn't buy them and haven't read them)


When I bought this book I really didn't know what to expect.
I had no idea what "Section 31" was,
but figured they got the name from "Area 51."

I started reading and soon became totally immersed in the story.
The main characters are written very well.

It's easy to tell (for me at least) when an author knows
how to write dialogue for classic Trek characters.
Spock is usually the "measuring stick."
If I can "hear" Leonard Nimoy saying the Spock dialogue,
then I'm usually happy.  Some authors don't write
Spock very well, but S.D. Perry knows what she's doing.

It works that way for the other charactes too.

This novel can stand on its own and doesn't need
the "Section 31" mumbo-jumbo.

It's a well written story that makes you think.
What does it make you think about, you may ask?
You'll have to read it and find out!

I found this book hard to put down!
