    This Enterprise novel is one I've definetly been looking forward to getting for several months, and finding out what's been going on with the Vulcan people after the Romulan war ended. And who's causing trouble on Vulcan and what T'Pol and Archer will find out when they Investigate the mystery they've been ordered to find out about.Also Trip& Malcolm's storyline sounds interesting too!

    PS- To Christopher: Is there a working title (that you are able to share) for book #4 yet?

    If B&N has them out early, maybe I should take a trip to one versus order via Amazon.

    I love Amazon and use it when i need to, but keeping the brick & mortar stores open is a must! We should all do our part to keep them alive when we are able :techman:

    I just picked up my copy today (although I got an email last last Thursday saying that it was in) at my local Coles. I'll get to it once I finish Dean Wesley Smith's Goblin's Revenge.

    I started reading my copy and I liked it. The Vulcan-heavy content appeals, and the Ware are interesting challengers.

    Vulcan heavy content sounds like a reason to try to get it early.

    I completely agree. Unfortunately, since I can no longer drive, I'm no longer able, so I'll have to leave that to you fine folks.

    Oh, guess what my next Amazon purchase will be?

    Decided to preordering because I will not have the time to go a B&N for a few weeks.

    I just finished, and I really dug it! Great job Christopher! Too much swirling around right now to mention everything...plus it seems no one has really read it yet, so it would be spoilers.

    I will say that i'm a fan of the running dates, as it gives the series a sense of how long things can take out there. I liked the character progression. I loved seeing Shran again (not long enough for me). It was cool seeing other ships like Essex and the Andorian Guard ships. So much to like this time out. I'd forgotten how many ancillary characters have already been developed. Lots of people in this book, but not too many that I forgot who they all were. Can't wait for book 4, which is next year i'm guessing.

    Oh...I also loved that
    Flint/Akharin
    showed up! Is there anything those
    Section 31 bastards
    don't know about?!

    Well, when I first got this gig and made a list of all the established Trek characters who would be around in that timeframe, he was naturally on the list. And given his interest in robotics, he fit here.

    Oh my gosh I can't bear waiting for this book anymore. And Paris's post really got my tongue dripping now. But I'm still sane enough not to unlock what's safely hidden away by the spoiler code.
