This is very frustrating book, mainly because I want to shoot the person who failed to edit it properly.There are places where the writer uses words incorrectly, substituting a wrong word for the one she actually means.The point of view, especially early on, hops around like a rabbit on steroids. At one point, it even managed to change mid-sentence.The author has a real aversion to the word 'said', using an entire Thesaurus of increasingly improbable words to describe the simple act of speaking.Science doesn't get much of a look in either. Sonar in outer space?There's some glitches in the time travel plot as well.All of which is doubly annoying , because I actually like the story. There's some good original characters (and some good female characters) and the Kirk/Spock relationship is as close to slash as you're likely to get in a mainstream novel. Although McCoy is probably the character who has the most spot-on dialogue.I would have rated this book higher if it had been properly edited - I could have done a much better job.However, even with all its flaws, I'll probably keep it.read more
