Sarek's never in danger in that book from memory, though I suppose he would eventually have been. But that book's more of a kirk saving jobbie then Spock too. As I said, I think "Demons" fits the bill, but it's been over a decade since I read it, so I'll have to excavate it from my book mounds this weekend & check.
In defeat, malice. In victory, revenge.
