Not what I was expecting...
All in all this was not a bad book, but it missed in a few places. The first glaring issue was the lack of a formal declaration of war. I would expect any organization like a United Earth to require such before finances could be shifted to build more ships and hire more crews. This isn't a dictator ship like the old Soviet Union which would just "make it so." Leaving this very important plot point out makes the reactions of the characters seem very odd.
My second issue is the lack of "To be continued..." at the end. It just sort of stopped and left everything hanging.
I know that the author has to deal with the weird continuity set up by Enterprise that makes it hard to reconcile what happened in that series with the events of the original series, so making the Vulcans stay out of the fight is harsh. However, it was clearly stated in the original series what the Romulan ships of the time looked like so the author should have gone with that but bowed to CBS/Paramount's "Declaration of New Continuity" or what ever they call it. Not to mention what the new movie has done (continuity, what continuity?)
There has not been an announcement of the next book so I don't know if there will be one...
