My rating: <a href="">5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
I was curious when I saw this new set of Starfleet Academy series. It was thicker than the previous ones I've read from the Star Trek:The Next Generation series. Wow! I never thought it would be an engaging read. Author Rudy Josephs kept me close at the edge of my seat as I thumbed quickly through the pages just like the race in the first chapter. It didn't lose steam because mystery came in a form a dead first year student in the morgue and the following day, another student in ICU. It made one think if the rigors of Academy life had anything to do with it, well, maybe. I won't say anymore lest for spoilers. ☺ The ending was sort of left hanging just a little bit. I can't help wonder if and when Lynne will be summoned to face the panel to account for her past choice? What about Jim Kirk? Was it right for him to do what he did to the rest of the files? <br/><br/>Another thing that I noticed were the fonts used in this book. I thought it lent to an easier read for the book. I'm glad they chose kind of font.<br/><br/>I don't know how much input an actor will say about one's likeness on the book cover, but Dr. McCoy wasn't captured well here. Initially, I thought it was different doctor but since the art reflects what's in the story then I hope in the next book outing, the cover art we'll get some relative likeness of Dr. McCoy. ☺
