This one keeps growing on me over time. ( )

I found this book very interesting and I enjoyed it. However it is not for everyone. And not every "Star Trek" fan either. Taking place back during the time of the original Enterprise (in the original universe) with Doctor McCoy, it is a deep dive into the history and culture of the Romulans.

It starts off in the "present" and draws the reader in and keeps them guessing for a while wondering what is going on. Then it alternates between the present and "history" chapters. While necessary, the history sections do feel like a history lesson than a experience. But as I said, without them the reader would be wondering about the choices the characters make. There are some surprise characters, and how McCoy gets away is very unique. It also gives more details with regard to the first contact the Federation has with the Romulans. And this seems to be different than most other accounts.

One comes away with a different feel of the Romulans after reading this book (like any culture they have their good and bad points). But as I said, it is not for everyone. ( )

I like this - I've liked it for years. Not quite as much as the first book, My Enemy, My Ally - partly because the main character here is a new one, not Star Trek canon. McCoy shows up half-way through, but he's more catalyst and trigger than character (there are a few - very few - scenes from his point of view). Arrhae/Terise - a Federation deep-cover agent on Romulus (ch'Rihan) - is the major character, both in POV and in action. And I find her mildly interesting but not as captivating as Duane's take on the canon characters. Interspersing the story with chapters from...Terise's monograph on Romulans and their history? Something like that - makes it interesting, but somewhat hard to read. Every time I'd get caught up in the story, the history chapter would knock me out - and every time I got interested in the history, we'd jump back to the story, with too much tension and momentum leached out of it. It's an enjoyable book, mostly because it expands my knowledge of the Star Trek universe (unfortunately, Paramount didn't make this stuff canon...I think it's a lot better than what they chose). As a story, it's only moderately good. Still, I've reread it over and over in the years since it was first released. A moderately good Duane (or in this case, Duane/Morwood) is still better than a lot of other books. ( )

I found this a slog.  Alternating chapters of a thin plot with a long-winded history of the Romulans/ Rihannsu and how they developed from their split with the Vulcans.  Even at my most involved state of fandom it would have been much too much, and now that my ardor has cooled, well, let's just say I'm glad I finished it.

This book is the final Duane/Morwood colaboration I have read starring a member of the TOS command crew - in this case the indomintable Dr McCoy, though he doesn't take the lead role. That honour goes to the Federation agent Terise LoBrutto who had been in place for eight years trying to get the social background of the mysterious race known as the Romulans to the Federation and the Rihansu to themselves and the Elements.

Like the later 'Spock's World', this tells in separate chapters the history of the Rihansu as they escape from a Vulcan that had grown too tame for them under Surak and the story of Terise and Dr McCoy's imprisonment in the household where she is head of the servants.

Although some aspects of the novel are rather improbable, the shear joi de vivre of most of the storyline carries you past that slight problem. ( )

Foreword:

Among many issues we are still unsure of, one fact makes itself superevident: they were never "Romulans."
Arrhae ir-Mnaeha t'Khellian yawned, losing her sleep's last dream in the tawny light that lay warm across her face, bright on her eyelids.
