I love the cover art for this book. It's excellent. It's the original reason I bought this book.

I was rather turned off by the sexism (women treated as objects, not only by the aliens but by the crew--including Bones teasing Kirk about his being saddled with a few wives given to him as gifts), as well as sexual assault (by another woman on Kirk) and (basically) domestic assault (that woman on her adult child) treated as not crimes. Not as problematic, but annoying nonetheless, was the ubiquitous bad mood of the main characters: for example, even when unwarranted, Kirk is described over and over as "scowling". This doesn't seem at all in character for him. He's usually much more good humoured and wry when confronted with things he doesn't care for.

However, it was a good mystery (in the sense that it kept me reading to find out the solution), and the plot holes and other nonsense weren't too bad for a Trek novel. As well, I liked the supporting characters so there was that going for it.

I'm marking this available and may end up releasing it at a later date.
