I was really rather pleased with this book. The story line with Spock was very intricate and fascinating, especially towards the end where the real action is. Spock, in my mind, was pretty Spock-like.

The Kirk story line was really sort of a tangent. Nothing really happens, other than the fact there's a chapter now and then describing the place they are stuck in. I felt it would have been a better story if the crew were united and Kirk was incapacitated some other way where he wouldn't be able to interfere with Spock's stubbornness.

All in all, it was a pretty good read. Especially the animosity between Spock and his rival.

A routine survey of the planet Alpha Octavius Four turns disastrous as Spock is attracked and poisoned by a huge creature and Kirk's landing party is trapped underground by a violent earthquake. Meanwhile, the U.S.S. Enterprise is called to Beta Cabrini where the crew faces off against a Marauder named Dreen - a man that Spock had watched his former captain Christopher Pike defeat years before.
