a nice review

Charles Packer of Sci-Fi Online has reviewed Star Trek: Klingon Empire: A Burning House, and given it a 9 out of 10.

Money quote:

There is little to criticise about DeCandido’s writing. It is unlikely he would have been as successful as he undoubtedly is without a great deal of talent, so you know you’re in safe hands. Characterisation and character development remains good. The plot is both intricate, believable, engaging and a little sad in it conclusion; I particularly enjoyed B’Oraq, the ships doctor, and her attempts to force an evolution in Klingon medicine. No easy task for a people who view any change as revolution.

I won't give too much of the plot away - though name dropping Rodek should give any Klingon fan a big hint about one of the plot strands - to do so would be to ruin a very enjoyable novel.
