    1. A compelling Star Trek tale told from the unusual perspective of a Klingon infiltrator. Ryan makes excellent use of events and gaps from the original series.


    2. “The Edge of the Sword” by Kevin Ryan is the first in a trilogy of Star Trek novels known as the “Errand of Vengeance” trilogy that revolves around the slow build up to war between the Federation & the Klingon Empire as seen in the TV episode, “Errand of Mercy”. This novel mainly follows the actions of a Klingon infiltrator who has been sent to the Enterprise to assassinate Kirk. However we also get to see what is happening to the spy’s brother who is on-board a Klingon ship, w [...]


    3. A little slow to start. I wasn't sure about the POV character at first- he kind of got on my nerves until he started interacting with the rest of the Security crew. The action scenes on the planet were very interesting and I was actually more engaged with those stories than I was with that of Kirk and Co. on the Enterprise.I'm a bit annoyed that this story was split into three books instead of being contained in one larger volume- it really feels like a ploy to get more money out of readers as o [...]

In particular, I liked going into the world of the red shirts. Instead of being the throwa [...]


    5. I actually read this novel a number of months ago, and only recently got around to continuing the series. It was originally introduced to me as something to fill the void that was left when the Vanguard series of novels came to an end: a smart, interesting, mature take on The Original Series era, with a point of view other than the usual Star Trek cast. It did not disappoint. Now that I am finally continuing the series, I can't wait to see what Kevin Ryan has in store for these characters.Full r [...]


    6. Original viewpoint (quite hard in this enormous series) but sometimes predictable. But the story goes the way i like it so that is not a problem. Action en tension with technical problems - a heavenly cocktail.


    7. A pretty good addition to the Star Trek universe.A young Klingon is tasked with infiltrating Star Feet and assassinating Captain Kirk
