WOW! I have read many many great Classic Trek novels, some of which were written by Diane Duane, and I have to say, without a doubt, 'The Wounded Sky' is one of THE very best you can get. I consider this book as the very first step I ever took on the path of Spirit. I was an atheist when I read the book; by the time I was done, I was not too sure any more. I am now a Christian, but have been following the path of Spirit since reading this great novel. Diane brings up some very interesting points regarding spirit, the conservation of energy, and so on. Really made me think, and from what I have read from other classic Trekkers, this novel has affected many in that regard. And I LOVE the character of K't'lk (if I spell her name right), and I love the relationship between her and Scotty ('Such a builder you are' she says to Scotty, a kindrid spirit.) The time-loss sequences when the crew's 'group mind' is evolving is awesome too, how the characters each SEE each other is just wonderful writing and I think Ms. Duane has a great grasp on the characters and ways of Classic Trek. Star Trek or 'regular' science fiction, this book is one of the best of all time I feel!

This book is one of my favorite Star Trek books. When it came out back in 1983 or so I had stopped reading Star Trek books. Luckily I picked this one up because it was great and got me back into reading Star Trek as well as introduced me to Diane Duane's other books.

One of the great classic Star Trek novels. Every few years I haul this one out, along with 3 or 4, others and read it again. Lots of truth here, amongst the fiction.

I bought this book long ago and every few years, I dust it off the bookshelf and carefully reread it. Why? Because I consider this one of the very best Trek books ever written. Truly, a stunning adventure that spans the universe- and beyond. If you like Trek and sci fi- do yourself a favor and read this asap.

Of the many Star Trek books I've read, Diane Duane's are the ones I read again and again. Not only does she breathe life into the crew, but her original characters are always fresh and interesting.
