Star Trek: Discovery: The Enterprise War Kindle Edition
A shattered ship, a divided crew—trapped in the infernal nightmare of conflict!
Hearing of the outbreak of hostilities between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, Captain Christopher Pike attempts to bring the USS Enterprise home to join in the fight. But in the hellish nebula known as the Pergamum, the stalwart commander instead finds an epic battle of his own, pitting ancient enemies against one another—with not just the Enterprise, but her crew as the spoils of war.
Lost and out of contact with Earth for an entire year, Pike and his trusted first officer, Number One, struggle to find and reunite the ship’s crew—all while Science Officer Spock confronts a mystery that puts even his exceptional skills to the test…with more than their own survival possibly riding on the outcome…

Firsr time reading from this author but I love his work. You can feel the personality of the people as you're reading. Their moral compass although rocked a bit, remains true. This is what I like about this era and the Pike-Una-Spock crew.
I had a hard time putting down the book, there's a lot going on and it's all very intreaguing.
The down sides are minimal. One incident was not investigated in depth and was a bit disappointing as they didn't see something coming when they should have. The whole story of how Spock became troubled and the pre-discovery season 2 on that was a bit simplistic. But it still made sense.
If you enjoyed Star Trek Discovery season 2, you'll definitely love this book and recognise the crew closest to Pike. It'll give you more perspective on the show.
I definitely recommend this book and will probably look into others from this author.

This feels like quite an epic - the story takes place over the course of a year or more - and that give plenty of time for several major events to occur, and for us as readers to get to know several of the main characters in more depth. It follows multiple threads of narrative, weaved together well, and explores some of the frustrations of a deep space mission as well as a variety of perilous scenarios.
I particularly enjoyed spending some time inside the head of Captain Pike, who has felt an underused character in the past, and is only now coming into his prime - and seeing things from his perspective in novel format really adds another layer of depth to his character.
A good prequel, and I hope they keep coming.
Rather waffelly! The pace being so slow and boring, it was constantly in danger of coming to a dead stop. The story goes through that worn out old theme of the Enterprise being caught ridiculously off guard; the Captain should have known better! Ok if you can speed read and in need of being sent to sleep! I am a Star Trek fan, but not of this book. The author seems more intent on page numbers than a good fast-paced tale!
The story has a mean spirited edge with severe moral quandaries which are never fully addressed. Furthermore, pike is depicted as borderline incompetent and unsure of his abilities, making for a tough read. The character of Spock is treated with all the dimension of the talking clock, while the only stand out with any wit or capability is Number One.
Hope you enjoy it more than I did.
