Crippled by a freak accident, Enterprise has crossed
over into an alternate universe - and into the middle of a
civil war set off by a brutal warlord who has used technology
stolen from the Daedalus to enslave his people...
Children sees the crew of the Enterprise forcibly
removed from their ship, imprisoned and brutalised by their
captors, Captain Archer and crew soon find themselves confronting
an even more immediate challenge than escape - subtle biochemical
differences in this universe that make their continued survival
an impossibility. Every hour they spend in this parallel continuum
brings them closer to death.
Archer discovers that, in order to recapture Enterprise, he
may have to cripple his ship once again. And even if he manages
to find a solution to that dilemma, one last survivor of the
doomed flight of the Daedalus stands between Enterprise
and her safe return home.
Stern's second, and final book, in this series certainly caught
me off guard. After the disappointing events in Daedalus,
he manages to turn things around for the conclusion. As I
mentioned in my previous review, it's not that Stern's writing
was dull, just that the events were stretched a little and
I was concerned that this follow up would be more of the same.
the pace is upped and the events are much more interesting.
While this book is gripping and entertaining, I still think
that the two books may have worked better if the events had
been condensed into one volume.
