One year after the end of the Dominion War, the Romulan Star Empire comes under attack by a mysterious and alarmingly powerful enemy calling itself the Watraii, a species with a long-standing vendetta against the Romulans. Yet though they remain tenuously allied, the Federation, the Romulans and the Klingons are unready to become embroiled in another sustained conflict, forcing Ambassador Spock, Admiral Uhura, Admiral Chekov, Captain Saavik, and some unexpected allies to defy their governments in order to meet the new threat head-on. But the first blood drawn may prove to be among the dearest of all...

Unknown to the defenders, the secret behind the Watraii's attack is buried in Vulcan's violent ancient past, during the time of Surak himself, when the proto-Romulans-staunch opponents of Surak's reforms-were compelled to take their chances among the cold and distant stars.

Exodus is the first book in the Vulcan's Soul series and if the rest of the output is like this, then fans of classic Trek are in for a real treat. This first book sees Spock start out on the first leg of a long and dangerous road to learn the truth... before his hopes for the future become ashes.

Authors Josepha Sherman and Susan Shwartz weave an intricate and enthralling tale - one that will drag in both hard-core Trekkers, who grew up on the original series, as well as the new generation of Trek fans.

If you are a Spock fan, then you are going to have to get your hands on this. It delves into the character more deeper than any other Trek book I have read, and provides plenty of insight into what it is like to live as a Vulcan.

I am looking forward to seeing the second book in the series - let's hope it is at least half as good as this release.
