Summary

An original novel based upon the explosive new Star Trek TV series on CBS All Access. 

Lieutenant Saru is a Kelpien, a member of a prey species born on a world overrun by monstrous predators...and a being who very intimately understands the nature of fear. Challenged on all sides, he is determined to surpass his origins and succeed as a Starfleet officer aboard the USS Shenzhou

But when Saru breaks protocol in order to prove himself to his crewmates, what begins as a vital rescue mission to save a vessel in distress soon escalates out of control. Forced into a command role he may not be ready for, Saru is caught between his duty and the conflicting agendas of two antagonistic alien races. To survive, he will need to seek a path of peace against all odds and risk compromising the very ideals he has sworn to uphold....

It's ok

Not a bad story, bit meh in places. Went on a bit too long. Lost interest in the story towards the end.

Not a terrible story but a terrible narrator.

really struggle with the narrators insistence on doing accents for all the characters! Story lacks any real depth and strays from canon at times.

absolutely amazing

Absolutely amazing. Petkoff is always an amazing reader, but the story itself was just incredible. learning more about Saru, his species as well as his own psyche. Everything about this book is beautiful.

A poor story

It was very boring and had little in the way of plot. A disappointment to say the least.
