Ael t' Rlailiiu is a noble and dangerous Romulan Commander. But when the Romulans kidnap Vulcans to genetically harness their mind power, Ael decides on treason. Captain Kirk, her old enemy, joins her in a secret pact to destroy the research laboratory and free the captive Vulcans. When the Romulans discover their plan, the Neutral Zone seethes with schemes and counter-schemes, sabotage and war.
A true classic!
I read this book years ago, when it was released, and I just read it again! A great story! Kirk is forced to trust a Romulan in order to save both the Federation, and the Empire. A true classic, and a must-read for any true fan of The Original Series!
