I've always been intrigued by the Saavik character and thought she warranted more attention, and I've enjoyed everything I've ever ready by MWB, so I was really looking forward to this book about Saavik by MWB. And it was a great read. I liked learning more about Saavik's life both before and after her appearances in Star Treks II, III, and IV, and how all those experiences affected her. In addition, I thought that the strange, new world visited in this book was very cool and unique. I also liked Saavik's new CO, Captain Miranova. It was nice to read about Starfleet officers acting as explorers and diplomats again, and not just soldiers and spies. That having been said, this book did have an espionage/intrigue plot as well, and while that aspect of the plot was certainly necessary--since it is what brought Saavik's past into the story and provided insights into how she looks at the world--I still found it far less interesting than the exploration part of the plot. Overall, though, very good book. The author writes beautifully, and it's clear she understands and cares about her characters. If MWB were to write a follow-up book, continuing Saavik's story past the TOS-move-era (and maybe even her rise to that captaincy we see her in in some other novels), I would definately pick it up.
