This book reads like fanfiction in the best possible way. This is a Spock / Uhura story where the author said, “I love Spock / Uhura, but so much of the destruction of Vulcan was just so bad from a scientific / socio-political perspective that I am going to rewrite it. And I will make it good. And I will also focus on the romance because I didn’t get enough of that in the movie.”
Ahem. I read this book a while ago, loved it, reviewed it on Facebook and didn’t review it here because this blog didn’t exist at the time. So. I’ve forgotten a lot, but it came up in conversation today because I was talking to a friend about the book.
