Before James T. Kirk, another captain stood on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise™, spearheading its mission of exploration into the uncharted reaches of the galaxy. He was a man driven to perfection, a brooding soul whose haunted eyes reflected the burden of the impossible standards he set for himself, and for whom his longtime science officer, Spock, one day would risk everything. Yet, little is truly known about the enigmatic Christopher Pike, the events that defined him...or the secrets that consumed him.

From the embers of his early childhood among Earth's blossoming interstellar colonies, to the terrifying conflagration that led him back to the world of his birth; from the mentor who would ignite young Chris's desire to return to the stars, to the career he blazed in Starfleet that would end in supreme sacrifice -- the path of Pike's astonishing life leads through fire again and again. But even amid the ashes of Talos IV, the forbidden world on which he would live out the remainder of his days, the dreams smoldering still within his aging, radiation-ravaged breast fan the flames of Pike's spirit to accomplish one final task....

I have read a fair amount of ST:TOS fiction and this book gave an interesting insight into Christopher Pike.

Although there is a lot of content there, I did not feel it kept my enthusiam throughout the novel. I enjoyed knowing more of the back story leading up to the events at Talos IV, but there did not seem to be enough 'action' like in some of the good Trek novels I've read.

That is why I rated this as 'ok'.

Definitely worth the read for people interested in other characters beside the original crew.read more
