TO REIGN IN HELL
THE EXILE OF KHAN NOONIEN SINGH

By: Greg Cox

What truly transpired during Khan's long years of exile on the forbidding world of Ceti Alpha V, before the tyrant escaped to embark on a murderous campaign of vengeance against Admiral James T. Kirk?  What horrific trials spawned Khan's insane lust for revenge?

Haunted by the memory of Khan's bitter accusations, Kirk now revisits Ceti Alpha V to discover for himself what ultimately drove Khan to madness.  There, buried beneath the desolate surface of a dying planet, Kirk and his allies find the untold story of their greatest foe - and of the women who loved him: Lieutenant Marla McGivers of Starfleet . . .

Along with Khan's genetically engineered followers from the twentieth century, Khan and Marla are left on Ceti Alpha V with the hopes of building a new life together.  Although the planet is savage and untamed, full of deadly predators and unexpected hazards, Khan dreams of carving out an empire even greater than
the one he ruled on Earth.

But when catastrophe strikes, laying waste to the entire world, Khan and the others find themselves trapped in a desperate struggle for survival.  Now Khan must use every once of his superhuman strength and intellect to wage a fearsome battle against the planet, his people . . . and the growing darkness in his own soul.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This is the third book in the "Khan" series of novels that details
Khan's exile on Ceti Alpha V.  I was very curious to know just what
happened to Khan and his followers (and Marla) in the years that followed
the original series episode "Space Seed" and I definitely wasn't disappointed!

Greg Cox has written a thoroughly entertaining novel that I didn't want
to put down!  The main characters are written accurately and even though
I know Khan is the "bad" guy I found myself sympathizing with him on
several occations throughout the story.

The descriptions of Ceti Alpha VI exploding and the subsequent destruction
on Ceti Alpha V are excellent and just how I had imagined they'd be.

This is a magnificent conclusion to the "Khan" series of novels.
