I am strangely conflicted by this book. Firstly, my suspicions about the previous book were confirmed when this book started with 'Chapter Six'. It however, did not just jump into the action, and spent another 2 overly long chapters continuing to set the stage. After that, it was all go, but still left me feeling empty, since it's clear the author is setting up for a conclusion book. Having said all that, I could not put it down, but given my problems with it, can not give 5 stars.

I'm not so sure why they split this story into two books. It was part of a series that gave a fantastic look at the history of Romulans and Vulcans. Point I disliked: after reading 1,000 plus pages of the "omnibus" version (which sometimes was a slog, despite the interesting points) it was left wide open until "The Empty Chair" resolved the whole thing.
Great plot and characterizations, the Rihannsu saga has done much to hold my interest. I am a huge admirer of Diane Duane's writing talents, and look forward to reading more by her. Already in the queue to be read at some future point are her novels Doctor's Orders and The Wounded Sky.

Full review:
For the fourth in the series it was much like the third! Continuation of the buildup to a climax that has yet to be finished. There are a few minor battles, but otherwise (as with book 3) it's an unfinished story.
Can't believe I fell for it again! Nothing happens, and then "to be continued..." Ugh!
Star Trek, abrupt ending otherwise decent plot
