This was an ok read. From a story perspective, it was not bad. It had a flow. The characters were not really made to stand out and the writing style was dry and not able to keep my attention. It was by no means a bad book just what I would define as a 3 star read.

This second novel is not as good as the first. “Drastic Measures” is set 10 years before the Battle at the Binary Stars. The main characters are Philippa Georgiou and Gabriel Lorca. The characters are so far removed from the Discovery time period that you sometimes forget that this is supposed to be a Discovery novel. The plot is based upon events described in the TOS episode "The Conscience of the King".
“Drastic Measures” is an entertaining novel. Dayton Ward does a good job of telling this story but it does seem a bit padded. There are sections that do not advance the plot much. I do recommend it to DISCO fans. I just wish it was set in a more interesting time and had more elements from the show.
I enjoyed seeing the younger Georgiou and Lorca, and I hope that future novels and stories will give us more looks into their respective careers before the events of Star Trek: Discovery.
