'Cold Wars' lives up to the high NF standard,
This review is from: Cold Wars: Gateways Bk.6 (Star Trek - New Frontier - Gateways) (Mass Market Paperback)
Having not read any of the other books in the "Gateways" series, I was not sure if that would affect my enjoyment of 'Cold Wars'. I didn't. Peter David brings us his usual high standard combining humour and action with great characters. Calhoun and Shelby's starships are assigned to chase down reports of the Iconians selling Gateway devices. The ships are lead to two planets at war with each other, one side having used the gateway to launch an attack on the royal family of the other.
Introducing or rather reintroducing several new characters and fitting them in seamlessly to the NF frontier creates some interesting moments and each Captains' first officer steal the book at moments during their talks with their respective captains.
All in all a good read and highly recommend for Star Trek or Peter David fans alike
