CRUCIBLE: SPOCK
THE FIRE AND THE ROSE


By: David R. George III


IN A SINGLE MOMENT

. . . the lives of three men will be forever changed.  In that split second,
defined paradoxically by both salvation and loss, they will destroy the world and then restore it.  Much had come before, and much would come after, but nothing would color their lives more than that one, isolated instant on the edge of forever.

IN A SINGLE MOMENT

. . . Spock, displaced in time, watches his closest friend heed his advice by allowing the love of his life to die in a traffic accident, thereby preserving Earth's history.  Returning to the present, however, Spock confronts other such crises, and chooses instead to willfully alter the past. Challenged by the thorny demands of his logic, he will have to find a way to face his conflicting decisions.

IN A SINGLE MOMENT

. . . that stays with Spock, he preserved the timeline at the cost of Jim Kirk's happiness.  Now, the death of that friend will cause Spock to  reexamine the fundamental choices he has made for his own life. Unwilling to accept his feelings of loss and regret, he will seek that which has previously eluded him: complete mastery of his emotions.  But while his quest for the perfect geometry of total logic will move him beyond his remorse, another loss will bring him full circle to once more face the fire he has never embraced.


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


The second book in the Crucible trilogy is just as good as its
predecessor, although substantially shorter in length.

This story tells us plenty about the life of Mr. Spock that we didn't
know before but doesn't involve as much of the original series
episode "The City On The Edge Of Forever" as the McCoy novel did.

I enjoyed it just as much as "Crucible: McCoy" and I'm looking
forward to starting the Kirk novel very soon!
