Synopsis

Ael t'Rlailiiu is a noble and dangerous Romulan commander. But when the Romulans kidnap Vulcans to genetically harness their psionic power, Ael decides on treason. Captain James T. 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. Along the way, the long-hidden secret history of the Romulan people - the Rihannsu - is revealed, back to the tragic schism that sundered the people of Mr Spock's home planet, Vulcan, thousands of years ago. Coinciding with the release of the new Rihannsu novel, THE EMPTY CHAIR, these novels combine thought-provoking political intrigue, military action, intense characterization, and brisk pace. Originally published as four separate books - MY ENEMY, MY ALLY; THE ROMULAN WAY; SWORDHUNT and HONOR BLADE - this collection is an excellent way for longtime readers to revisit some of the all-time bestselling classics of Star Trek fiction, and an opportunity to introduce a new generation of readers to these rich and remarkable stories.

Sehr erstaunt öffnete ich das Buch und stellte fest dass es sich um ein ziemlich abgegriffenes Mängelexemplar aus der "Harris Country Public Library" aus "Houston, Texas" handelte. Ich weiss nicht wie das in den Staaten ist, aber hierzulande werden solche Bücher für einen Apfel und ein Ei verkauft, wenn Sie die max. Laufzeit überschritten haben. Dafür war das Buch eindeutig zu teuer.

An excellent Trek novel 21. Dezember 2006
Von Valerie Estelle Frankel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Fed up with dull Star Trek novels? here's something far better. Journey through time to the founding of the Romulan Empire, with a people devoted to passion over reason, elemental powers, and an unutterably complex form of honor. Noted fantasy author Diane Duane has written a series unlike any others. Along with Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and other friends, this book features Ael, a Romulan traitor who values her personal honor over the empire, the crystal spider and Hamalki physicist K's't'lk, and other brilliantly original characters. A great series for any Star Trek fan, definitely not to be missed.

Ri'hannsu: The Bloodwing Voyages (Star Trek) 13. Mai 2007
Von J. Avalon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Diane Duane is simply the best writer in the Star Trek universe. Every novel she has written has been exciting, engrossing, and entertaining. With her, you gain a keen insight into the minds and histories of all aspects of our favorite Universe - the crew of the Enterprise, the other members of the Federation, the Vulcans, and in this series, the Ri'hannsu (Romulans). One should read everything she writes; you won't be able to put them down. She makes it very real, and she has the skill to make readers believe that they are there. She is exacting in her research (she accurately conforms to the ST series) and science, physicists will appreciate her details, but she makes it understandable to the scientifically challanged. She is also a brilliant psychologist and political analyst. She can even make her villians likeable and well-rounded. Her books are better than chocolate.

Still love it, 3 years after I read it! 16. Januar 2011
Von Marianne M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was the first Star Trek book(s) I ever read! I wasn't even much into the Trek franchise, even though I was a major Sci Fi fan. This changed everything for me! The story of Ael & the Romulans/Rihannsu is simply EXTREMELY GOOD (oh my god, it's great!) To be fair, I like the 2 first best, simply because they delve into Rihannsu culture, emotionalism, religious beliefs, language and honor, while the latter 3 contain too many space battles for my liking... but they are all worth reading. I only wish they'd make a hardcover omnibus containing all 5 novels, not just the first 4. (Hardcover, because you will want to re-read them a lot.) As a result of these books, I tend to side more with the Romulans in the canon series/movies, than the Federation;-)

Bear in mind that the first books were written BEFORE NextGen, so there will be canonical differences, although Diane Duane has corrected some in the omnibus, compared to the original/individual novels. But IMO this is the way they should have developed the Rihannsu, errr Romulans. The concept became so popular that fans even went so far as to lobby for the books to be considered canonical. Unfortunately Roddenberry refused, and banned the development of Rihannsu culture/language from later books, though some hinted at it even when it was banned (Diane Carey.) The ban was lifted in the 2000s. And in new books, you will find a lot of references to Diane Duanes original Rihannsu culture/language. Just goes to show just how good Diane Duane is; new trek writers still base their culture on her Rihannsu series 25 years later. Most notably: Andy Mangels & Michael A. Martin & David R. George III. - be sure to check out their books if you like the Rihannsu concept;-)

Romulans Rock! 13. Oktober 2012
Von Independent Lady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I have just reread the first two titles in The Bloodwing Voyages. I need to find a new hardcover copy that is affordable because the one I own is coming apart. This copy was one I purchased from the Science Fiction Book Club many years ago. I confess that My Enemy, My Ally is my favourite title in the series, but each book gives more and more about the Romulans and their culture. It is understandable why Romulans are so xenophobic given what the they experienced after leaving Vulcan and their experience with the Etoshans. Diane Duane has written a power house of a series that puts many Star Trek authors to shame. I collected Star Trek novels for many years, but came to realize how greedy publishers were becoming. I really dislike the approach to starting one novel during Kirk's time, then continue it through to each of the eras that follow. I have found that these books are fragmented and not really complete stories in themselves and that transitions to one era after another in Federation history are poorly done. I have had to move quite often since a divorce and over last two years I have reduced my Star Trek book collection from over 500 books to less than a hundred. I took time to reread each book and realized that for the majority of them, I had purchased them just to keep my collection going instead of buying only quality stories. I admire the feisty Commander Ael t'Rllaillieu. She is a good match for Kirk, Spock and even McCoy. She is a person to "ride the river with". Ael holds a level of honour that is rare. She betrays her people for their sake even though they do not see it this way. I cannot imagine the fire that burns away inside Ael's heart as she does what is right even though it means permanent exile from her people and worlds. Sword Hunt was a bit harder to read, and some transitions are not clearly made, but it is a book worth reading. I can see why the Romulan government is so eager to retrieve the one S'harien of the five that the Sundered took with them. It is a priceless reminder of the violent past on Vulcan and the many wars that ensued on ch'Rihan and ch'Havran. Honor Blade seems to be running out of steam so to speak and I think that this book could have been written tighter and brought to a clear and satisfying conclusion instead of continuing the story in The Empty Chair. Given Ael's commitment to her worlds and people, but disliking the over wrought and too much focus upon how the Romulan government is formed and run, I find it difficult to believe that Ael would have ever agreed to become the Empress. It seems to me just a repeat of the old ways when there was an empress{granted not a woman of honor like Ael}and that this would lead to trouble after Ael's death. Given some of the fine episodes about Romulans in Star Trek: The Next Generation and the fascinating film "Nemesis", it is clear that the Romulan government was in chaos once again. How much of this was due to there being an empress again and how was the government run after Ael's death is a good question. My Enemy, My Ally had me hooked from page one. When I read, "Her name, to which various people had recently been appending curses, was Ael i-Mhiessan t'Rllaillieu. Her rank, in the common tongue was khre'Riov: commander-general. Her serial number was a string of sixteen characters that by now she knew as well as she knew her fourth name, thought they meant infinitely less to her. And considering these matters in such a fashion was at least marginally appropriate just now, for she was in a trap. How long she would remain there, however, remained to be see."{My Enemy, My Ally, page 1, Duane} With an opening like this, how can one not be intrigued and want to go on reading? Is it possible that Diane Duane herself is a Romulan? Ael is such a vivid and real character that I would not be surprised to meet her some place. I love Ael's ruminating conversations with herself as she deals with the incompetent crew assigned to her aboard Cuirass. Ael clearly has spunk and cannot be as easily caged as those in the Praetorate think. I found myself laughing and cheering as Ael calmly went about preparing her return to Bloodwing. I grieved with her when her son betrayed her and led an armed incursion aboard the Enterprise. I realize that he was very angry when his cousin/playmate was exiled for losing the cloaking device to Starfleet, but surely he understood that had Ael gone on protesting, both his cousin and mother would have been executed. I would be unhappy to be exiled, but at least I would go on living with possibly a chance of one day being allowed to return home. I was shocked at first that Ael chose to turn off the life support that was keeping her son alive not because he was going to die anyway, but the fact that he was a traitor and had to die. I am not sure that I could ever make a choice like this, but I can see that allowing her son to live even if only a few hours until he died on his own, would have made the relationship she had with the members of her crew who had remained loyal to her very difficult. I was impressed with Kirk giving Ael his fourth name as being her whole and entire. I loved when Ensign Naraht so startled Ael. Given that the Romulan culture worships the four elements, I can only imagine how Ael must have felt to be addressed by the element Earth in the form of a colorful "rock". Duane managed in the first two books to show just how much in common the Federation and Romulans have with each other. I will have to write another review about The Romulan Way at a later date. In the meantime,
