It's sci-fi, Jim...

Despite my soft spot for all things Trekkie and for the ever-lovely Cap'n James T Kirk, this is the first time I've tried one of his books. I say 'his books' but it seems to be a fairly open secret that they were in fact ghostwritten by Ron Goulart based on plot outlines created by William Shatner, though I can't confirm if that's true or false. Tek Power is the sixth in the series, and is based in a world of the not-too-distant future, where some kind of technological 'drug'

This is the sixth book in the Tek series but the first time I have read one. I think that was not wise. There is much to like about some of the characters but there is a lot of back story that I missed because I came to the series late.
It is set in the 23rd Century and William Shatner has created a world that is reasonably plausible although some of the technology and the terms for the technology seem more he has just jazzed up what we have today. Let's face it, technology in our own lives has l
Who knew Captain Kirk was a pretty good writer? It’s an action pact, past paced tale that holds your attention to the end. Interesting characters set in an interesting sci-fi world. You’ll like the hero and if you haven’t checked out the series from the beginning, you should. You just might have a very exciting time.

I skipped some books in the series, but this could easily be read as a standalone. It was fast-paced, naturally, with a premise more interesting than the previous books I've read (it's been awhile since I last picked up this series).

3.5 stars.

Received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
As a fan of the show and reader of previous books in the Tek universe I loved this book. It has enough action and humor in it to make the reading enjoyable. The only problem is it goes by so fast that I want more.
Jeremy Morgan Another guilty pleasure piece. I know I have a problem, I just don't know how to stop.
