The Children of Kings brings to life one of the commanding adventures of Christopher Pike, the second captain of the starship Enterprise, and this galactic adventure involves the Klingon and the Orion races. Starbase 18 lies in ruins, believed to have been attacked by the Klingons. As Captain Pike investigates the destruction of the starbase, he responds to a distress call sent out by the Orions; who in turn capture Captain Pike and those in the rescue party. Now it’s up to Spock and first officer Number One to discover who actually destroyed Starbase 18 while finding a way to safely return Captain Pike to the Enterprise. Any missteps could ultimately result in an interstellar war!

This book has 400 pages of adventure! From the beginning of the book I was escorted to the Enterprise and immediately engrossed in the mystery of the story – who destroyed Starbase 18? Since I am a fan of the original Star Trek series, it was fun getting to know more about Captain Pike and his crew. And yes, I did find myself thinking WWKD (what would Kirk do)? But this didn’t subtract from the wonderful story the author, David Stern, created. The story had great twists which kept me reading. The more I read, the more I began to identify with this new crew and I began to like the characters and what they brought to this adventure in space. Plus there was Spock; he helped bridge the gap between the Enterprise I knew and this Enterprise crew, characters I began to grow fond of.
