There is a TOS novel i remember reading called "The Romulan Way" which went into a LOT of detail on the origins of the romulan people. I think it was just before Sarek.. It was a killer read.. featured leonard mccoy
I absolutely hated that book.. it's unreadable IMO. Very dated.
Of course its dated. But if you read it in the context of "vintage star trek" you'd get a lot out of it. Origin stories are transient in general (look at the JJ Abrahms Star Trek for example)...
Life's too short to reread books paying close attention to their vintage element which made them so unreadable in the first place.
