I recently was gifted a Kindle as a present and thought I would start my Kindle collection with Star Trek books. Being a long time fan of Enterprise, I jumped straight into The Romulan war without purchasing Kobayshi Maru first. Reading this isn't required but would have probably helped as many elements from Kobayshi spill into the opening of this book. A lot of the reviews for this book have focused on the "hap hazard" nature of the writing, personally I like the jumping back and forward as you breeze through chapters as it keeps you on your toes.

Pros - After 4 seasons on Tv, Hoshi and Mayweather get more depth in this book than
they ever did. There is action scenes, which are short and sweet but personally
I think writing about epic space battles will never compare to seeing them on
screen. Archer for once is a little broken and wounded, and not the archetypal
"John Wayne" in Space" that was often portrayed - the character is better for
it. Soval, Trip and T'pol are also well handled.

Cons- Not enough given to the goings on at the Romulan end of things, quick few
pages that give very little away about Valdore, D'derix or the usual plottings
and assassinations. Sags in the middle with the newscaster stories.

All being said it's a good read, a little too much going on for it's own good. But in the end gets to where it needs to be. Faithful to the show and the characters.

Good story, well written, great use of well known characters, and good rolling action from start to finish. Finishes on a cracking cliff hanger - Netflix, please make this.....

It's been about two years since I read Kobayashi Maru, so I was worried I'd be totally lost jumping into this. Fortunately, that fear was unfounded as Mr Martin eases you back into the story while dropping in helpful reminders along the way - something I, thankfully, didn't feel clobbered over the head with as I did with Kobayashi Maru.

Some readers may be disappointed that the Enterprise crew have a drastically reduced role in this book - indeed, they only occupy a few chapters. But considering the story is about a war that has embroiled two political powers - and the Coalition is made up of four distinct races anyway - it would have been criminal to just focus on the titular ship and just drop references in to the rest of the major players.

The scope of the book on the whole really did impress me. In a nutshell, Enterprise (and Archer in particular) is still reeling from the loss of the Maru, Mayweather transfers off the ship and becomes an Albatross, Starfleet is trying to temper Earth's media - which is damaging morale on two fronts by criticising Starfleet and advocating xenophobia - as well as trying to find the middle ground between the MACOs, the United Earth Government and even the Coalition Council. Meanwhile, Vulcan has its own problems, leading the Tellarites and Andorians to work more closely together. The Romulans are also given some decent development as we see Valdore trying to lead a successful campaign while dealing with internal dissidents, an insane Praetor, a major push to achieve warp seven and even protecting his own family while the usual Romulan cloak and dagger politics abound. Thrown into all this, you still get perspectives from the Ordinary Joes across the Coalition and Trip's continuing spy mission.
