Product Description

From Kirkus Reviews

Second installment in a new series (Delta Search, not reviewed). Here, the Terran Confederation is locked in a deadly struggle with two alien races, the saurian Hunzza and the doglike Alba. On the human colony planet Wolfbane, 16-year-old Jim Endicott bids farewell to his Earth-bound girlfriend, Cat, only to find he's wanted by a pair of rival aliens: Thargos the implacable Hunzzan hunter and Korkal Emut Denai, an Alban spy with connections to Earth government bigwigs. Earth's top-secret computer systems, or mind arrays, are the best in the galaxy, you see, and somehow the key to them has been encoded in Jim's DNA. So when Thargos tries to grab Jim, Korkal intervenes, only for Jim to save Korkal's life; the two become allies. To evade Thargos, Korkal drops Jim off on planet Brostach, where he becomes a mercenary. Personable, intelligent, and capable, Jim advances rapidly and soon saves an Alban battle fleet. As war flares between Hunzza and Alba, Korkal admits that, without Earth's help, the Albans are doomed. So as the Hunzzan space navy closes in on Earth, can Korkal, Cat, and Jim construct a huge mind array in time to save humanity? Agreeably inventive, well plotted, interestingly peopled, deftly paced and controlled: a quantum leap ahead for Shatner, following the abysmal Man O'War (1996). -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting Sept. 12 1998

Format:Mass Market Paperback
A good light read. I emphized with Jim, but it seemed a little to contrived and drawn out - with everything a little too artifical. Slightly confusing in parts, I would borrow it from the library but not but it myself

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel! Feb. 13 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Shatner is getting to be a great writer and I was really impressed! I liked the first book so much, I bought this book while it was still only out in a hardback version just so I could read the sequel right away! I think they should have the sequel come out in paperback sooner though. I do not often pay hardback prices for this type of reading.

I enjoyed the plot. It had a few poor transitions between events but if you look past them the story flows well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing sequel to the first "Quest" story. Feb. 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It may be that the first "Quest" book had a ghost writer, or maybe Shatner had to hurry through this. The segues are confusing and the characters have absolutely no depth. AND THIS FROM A SPACE OPERA FAN!! I'll return and read the third installment, but only out of respect for Shatner's other work.
