Overview


The Devil's Heart -- a legendary object of unsurpassed power and mystery. Worlds that believe in magic consider it Darkness's mightiest talisman; worlds of science consider it a lost artifact of some ancient and forgotten race. Some say the Heart enables its possessor to control people's minds and to amass wealth enough for a dozen lifetimes, while others thing it capable of raising the dead, perhaps even changing the flow of time itself. But to all, the location of this fabled object has remained a mystery -- until now.

An isolated archaeological outpost has suddenly stopped responding to repeated requests for information. Sent to discover why, the U.S.S. EnterpriseĀ™ crew finds a devastated outpost and a dying scientist, whose last worlds fall on disbelieving ears: the Devil's Heart has been found.

Now, as the quest for the Heart unfolds, Captain Jean-Luc Picard discovers the awful truth behind all the legends and age-old secrets: Whoever holds the Devil's Heart possesses power beyond imagining...

While visiting a remote archaeological outpost, a dying scientist tells the crew he found the Devil's Heart--a legendary object of unsurpassed power. 2 cassettes.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-Responding to an emergency medical call from a Vulcan archeological team digging on the desolate planet Iconia, the Enterprise arrives to find them murdered. Picard comes into possession of a powerful, ancient artifact, the Ko N'Ya. He and the crew of the Enterprise become caught up in the battle to possess this ruby gem, which leaves behind it a trail of blood as red as the devil's heart itself. In this tale of power and greed, aliens and humans alike are tempted by the endless power of the jewel. Carter has woven several individual story lines into a complex, textured, well-written plot and peopled it with three-dimensional characters. While the novel stands on its own, fans of ST:TNG will find it a rich reading experience.-John Lawson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
John Mort
The Vulcans, with the exception of one appearance from Spock and his father, Sarek, haven't been much in evidence in "The Next Generation" TV series, but they dominate Carter's novel. The "Enterprise becomes involved when a party of Vulcans, led by the archaeologist and scholar T'Sara is reported dead on the barren planet Iconia. The deaths are the result of interplanetary rivalries over T'Sara's discovery of an ancient stone of wisdom and power, the Ko N'Ya--a stone containing the very essence of Vulcan, Romulan, and kindred races. The Ko N'Ya falls into Captain Picard's hands, and, inadvertently, he links with T'Sara and with the stone's great power. This tests his courage and his sagacity--but not to worry, he will prevail. Ferengis abound, and there are episodes, also, with every born-again Trekker's favorite adversary, the Borg. Carter renders Commander Riker as rather shallow and neurotic, while Couselor Troi and Dr. Crusher are given slightly larger roles than on the show; Troi, in particular, is highly sympathetic. Worf is given nothing to do but mouth ancient platitudes about war and Data, of course, is Data. But this is well done, for the most part, and fans will welcome all the Vulcan lore.
