This author captures Kirk perfectly, the characterisation spot on for me. I confess I am long overdue a re-watch of The Original Series, my view of Kirks character being shaped by his development through the feature films.
As well as writing the character of Kirk effortlessly and expertly, what has set this author apart from other Trek authors for me is as he states in his own words in the forward he does not set out to write merely a satisfying story he wants to surprise the reader. I often think that altered timeline stories possess a certain degree of "play it safe", permitting the author a bit of breathing room in terms of violating canon.
In this book the author weaves a great plot around an inadvertent change to the timeline caused by the events of the film Star Trek-Generations. The nexus and the Guardian of Forever are used intelligently to provide a rollercoaster ride through the events that have shaped Kirk, permitting him to muse on what could have happened if he turned left rather than right etc. This is anything but passé. The plot gathers momentum from page 1, reaching a crescendo over the course of the last hundred pages: I literally could not put it down.
There were some heavyweight science fiction writers that contributed stories to the Original Series, we might just have another one here.
Five stars no hesitations. A lesson to all would be Star Trek writers showing what intelligent, well observed writing can do.
