I admit, I wasn't happy with the book early on. Some of the storyline and descriptions contradicted the TV show, movies, and other books I've read, and just didn't seem plausible. The second half of the book was much better though, and worth the dissatisfaction of the earlier pages.

Did you often wonder about Vulcan? This book answers those questions and tells a pretty darn good story too.

From the back cover: As Commander Spock, his father Sarek, and Captain James T. Kirk struggle to preserve Vulcan's future, the planet's innermost secrets are laid before us, from its beginnings millions of years ago to its savage prehistory, from merciless tribal warfare to medieval court intrigue, from the exploration of space to the development of o'thia--the ruling ethic of logic.

For those Star Trek fans, who haven't read this book, I would recommend it to you. It has a fascinating look at Spock's home planet. As far as Star Trek books go, it is well written in comparison to many.

Really enjoyed this one. A look at the history of the planet of Vulcan as well as the Vulcan people, running parallel to a story involving Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. I love when Star Trek novels deal with real-world issues, such as racism and xenophobia, and this book does not disappoint. Highly recommended for Star Trek fans.
