Having read some of the later chapters of the New Frontier series, I enjoyed the origins of Calhoun. The characters came to life here and I thoroughly enjoyed the little twist at the end.
My only complaints, and why I had to give this only three stars is the narration was done in a peculiarly halting pattern. Speaking - like - a - parody - of - James - Kirk. In addition, the sound track and sound effects were much too loud and had me constantly adjusting volume to avoid the loud effects and to hear the narration which would then be too quiet.
I will be more cautious and try to avoid other titles produced in the same manner.
Conclusion: good story, but overwhelmed by the post-production.

I enjoy a variety of Star Trek books on audio and in paper. These are no exception, and Peter David is one of my all-time favorite Trek authors. However, the narrator delivers the majority of the dialogue in a stilting, almost painful, manner. Other reviewers likened it to James T. Kirk's speech, but I find it much more difficult to listen to than Shatner's Kirk. I am seriously considering simply buying the books to read, so I can finish the story without having to suffer any longer. Story: 4 stars. Narration: 0 stars

This is quite an interesting book. Initially, you are wondering what it's all about, but as the story progresses, things become clearer. The 'splits' of the 4 books, give you moments of pause, allowing you to digest the story fully. These splits also prompt you into wondering what will happen next, excellently constructed.
Another worthwhile story to add to my collection :-)
