Rough Beasts of Empire

Rough Beasts of Empire Review

Still on Romulus in pursuit of his goal of reunifying the Vulcans and Romulans, Spock finds himself in the middle of a massive power struggle. In the wake of the assassination of the Praetor and the Senate, the Romulans have cleaved in two. While Empress Donatra has led her nascent Imperial Romulan State to establish relations with the Federation, Praetor Tal’aura has guided the original Romulan Star Empire toward joining the newly formed Typhon Pact. But numerous factions within the two Romulan nations vie for power and undivided leadership, and Machiavellian plots unfold as forces within and without the empires conduct high-stakes political maneuvers.

Meanwhile, four years after Benjamin Sisko returned from the Celestial Temple, circumstances have changed, his hopes for a peaceful life on Bajor with his wife and daughter beginning to slip away. After temporarily rejoining Starfleet for an all-hands-on-deck battle against the Borg, he must consider an offer to have him return for a longer stint. Beset by troubling events, he seeks spiritual guidance, facing demons new and old, including difficult memories from his time in the last Federation-Tzenkethi war.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

  • Third Typhon Pact book focusing on Spock on Romulus, the Romulan people, Benjamin Sisko and the Tzenkethi. I enjoyed the Spock part of the story and loved reading about the Romulans - they're always i...

  • I feel conflicted giving this just one star. It's Star Trek, therefore I love it. But honestly. WTF was this? I mean, other than boring. Sisko left his wife and kid? Not in character. Spock, one of th...

  • Rough Beasts of Empire is yet another novel in the continuing epic political drama of the Typhon Pact. As the cover indicates, the book is primarily about Captain Benjamin Sisko and Spock. The book i...

  • Normally, I give most Star Trek novels at least three stars, books about DS9 usually get more, but this book was more upsetting than enjoyable. The Spock portion about the Romulan Empire was quite fas...

  • This is just a terribly disappointing book. It is two completely different stories, one involving Spock and the reunification movement in the two Romulan Empires, one involving Sisko and his inner tur...

  • I was surprised to read about Capt. Sisko's character development. I don't recall reading any books that took place between the time DS9 ended and this book that suggested the Ben Sisko I grew up with...

  • This book was a mess. A reasonably good political tale about the Romulans that included Spock, combined with a terrible story involving some sort of mutant emo version of Sisko that literally went now...

  • I like how the post TNG Star Trek has these novels all link together. What happens in the Typhon Pact novels shows up in some other novel that isn't exactly in the same storyline, but, it is in the sa...

  • Struggled to get through this one. I didn't care about the entire Spock end of things and, by mid-book, starting skipping entire chapters.I think the characterization of Sisko was laughably off. I'm f...

  • A book with two of the most important and established characters in the Star Trek universe, you'd think this book be better. Nope. Total disappointment. Just a waste of these characters time. Hopefull...
