Volume Five of the hardcover series, "The Winning of Aleta", starts with Prince Valiant kidnapping Aleta from her own throne room. He is suffering from a head injury, and is mad from fever and grief. Once his fever leaves him, they fall in love with each other. Their newfound love is interrupted by a warlord who steals Aleta for his harem. But Valiant quickly pursues and lays siege to his walled city to get her back. Fun. posted Jun 17, 2013 at 7:54PM
|Dog on it |
by Quinn, Spencer.
A great, fun book about a dog and his private eye partner. Chet, the dog, is the real star of the show and the story is told completely from his first-person perspective. What I liked about this book was the way the author kept true to the dog's perspective. Like a real dog, he gets distracted by things, falls asleep when not involved in the conversation and sneaks old food crumbs on the floor. If you love dogs, you'll love this book. I sure did. posted Jun 17, 2013 at 7:35PM
|The assassination game |
by Gratz, Alan, 1972-
Book Four of the Starfleet Academy series, this one involves a social strategy/stealth game called "Assassination" played by the cadets while Starfleet entertains a visit from a war-like, wolf-like humanoid race. While this was a fun book and made me want to read more of the series, the purist in me found the scope of the plot to be too expansive and would've made the crew all well-known heroes by the time the movie's time period came around. And that just wasn't the case. Besides that little fact, this was a very enjoyable book. posted Jun 3, 2013 at 5:51PM
|The edge |
by Josephs, Rudy
The first book of the Starfleet Academy series. Part of the the reason that the new Star Trek movies have been so popular is that they took the characters back to their early days, while they were just graduating from Starfleet. This series expands on that concept, imagining adventures and intrigues the crew would have had while at Starfleet academy. It stays true to the canon of the new movies, so no Scotty and no Kirk-Spock friendship. This one was about the mysterious deaths of several cadets. If you liked the new movies or you're an old Trekkie like me, you will like these books. Teen and up. posted Jun 3, 2013 at 5:32PM
