PLOT OR PREMISE: This is the third of six books dealing with biological terrorism by an unknown foe. This novel focuses heavily on two known characters (a great portrayal of Spock and an annoying version of McCoy), and introduces a really interesting character -- Ensign Eric Stiles. Stiles is assigned to evacuate Spock and friends from a planet in turmoil, but Stiles gets captured during the otherwise successful mission. Subsequent imprisonment for four years has a definite effect on Stiles and he establishes a strong bond with a fellow prisoner, Zevon. Fast forward several years and the biological terrorist has attacked the Romulans. The Romulans can't save themselves...perhaps the Federation can help? . WHAT I LIKED: I am not a die-hard sci-fi fan, but I do like Star Trek and Star Wars. This is a great story, and Stiles is a fantastic character. Definitely the best addition to the series so far, not surprising given Carey's strong ties to the Starfleet universe! . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: My complaints related to characterization for the previous two books are not as strong here, but McCoy is a bit annoying. . BOTTOM-LINE: Best of the first three in the series. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, and I do not follow her on social media.

Way above-average Star Trek medical thriller, that exceeded my usual expectations. From the Double Helix six-part mini-series, this is number three--and although I haven't read any of the others in the series (appearantly, they are easily read separately), I look forward to reading the others. Highly recommended.
