If you've read most of my reviews at
then you know I really enjoy stories that involve time travel
so when I bought this book I was excited to begin reading it.
The fact that it takes place in the "Next Generation" time frame
didn't bother me since an original series character was the main
focus and besides, I must admit I enjoy stories that involve the Borg!
This is a well written story with well written characters that
held my interest from start to finish. I found it hard to
because I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next!
If you're a time travel fan like me then I'm sure
you'll enjoy reading this novel.
