the weighty mantle of chancellor, General Martok led the forces
of the empire to victory in the final Allied assault against
the Dominion. Now, with Worf at his side as the newly appointed
Federation ambassador to Qo'noS, Martok at last is coming
home, bringing with him the hope of a bright new future for
his people. But his return is met by treachery and upheaval.
A usurper to the Imperial Throne has arisen - one who won't
be satisfied until Martok is dead...
Left Hand of Destiny is
set shortly after the events that unfolded at the end of the
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine TV series. General Martok
looks to be in trouble when a growing collective of Klingons
decide that they would rather follow another Klingon who feels
that Martok is not the man to lead the Klingon Empire into
a new era.
this now not only means that Martok's life is in danger, but
also that of Worf's and his son Alexander.
first thing that struck me about this book was the fact that
the opening chapter is concerned solely with one of general
Martok's dreams. I was at a loss to see why this was included
- especially as it was so long - other than to pad out space.
annoying problem was the fact that the writers, on more than
one occasion speak down to the reader. In places this made
it feel like a child's book - but thankfully there wasn't
too much of this throughout the novel.
the plus side, fans of Worf, and Klingons in general, are
in for a treat. But, on the whole fans will be disappointed.
Let's hope volume two is more engaging.
