Reactions and Reviews
THE GIFT by Mara-Lyn Cade is the second part of what we're promised will be a trilogy concluding in NAKED TIMES #14. I was impressed with the first installment, and even moreso with this second part. Ms. Cade gives us some good insights into a "slave" (in name only) Kirk and a Warrior Spock. This installment takes place primarily on Vulcan, and though I'm not normally a fan of alternate universe fiction, I found the characters and the action to be sufficiently intriguing, and I'm looking forward to the final installment.
