Just finished this one and I hope that Tony Daniel picks up some more work. I am currently rewatching TOS and with this book, it really did feel like I was carrying right on after season three. It was fast paced, like an episode, and the dialogue sounded familiar and right. I liked the references back to previous adventures. The only issue I had is only one line of dialogue that I didn't like; "Follow me, Officers.", when Spock is directing his subbordinates to follow him over the backs of the Hortas. A small thing, I think, but even now, it doesn't sit right with me. That said, I won't hesitate to pick up another of Daniel's Trek books if we see another on the shelves.
Ditto I'd liked the fact Tony mentioned previous tv episodes in Devil's baragainI really enjoyed reading this book. and I'd like to see him write another Tos novel too.
