Book Review: ‘A Time to Love’ by Robert Greenberger

Star Trek: A Time to Love is the fifth book in the A Time to series, produced by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster and was written by Robert Greenberger and released in May of 2004.

It feels like the previous four books were just set up, and the meat of the A Time to series is just about to take off. This book is significantly better than its predecessors, showing the heights that this series could have achieved. Unfortunately, Greenberger makes some poor choices here as well, keeping it from attaining the highest of scores. 

The best part of this book is the accessibility. This one had the easiest premise and easiest action to follow. I found myself struggling to follow the characters, action, and events of the previous four books at various times. However, I was not lost once in this book. Despite being science fiction, this book felt like it was written to a more general audience, and the science fiction elements were toned down.

Tempest Runner, the new audiobook by Cavan Scott, is out featuring voices by Jessica Almasy, Dan Bittner, Orlagh Cassidy, Sullivan Jones, January LaVoy, Kathleen McInerney, Tara Sands, Vikas Adam, Jonathan Davis, Neil Hellegers, Saskia Maarleveld, Soneela Nankani, Marc Thompson and Shannon Tyo.

The Nihil storm has raged through the galaxy, leaving chaos and grief in its wake. Few of its raiders are as vicious as the Tempest Runner Lourna Dee. She stays one step ahead of the Jedi Order at the helm of a vessel named after one of the deadliest monsters in the galaxy: the Lourna Dee. But no one can outrun the defenders of the High Republic forever.

After the defeat of her crew, Lourna falls into the hands of the Jedi–but not before she hides her identity, becoming just another Nihil convict. Her captors fail to understand the beast they have cornered. Just like every fool she’s ever buried, their first mistake was keeping her alive.

Lourna is determined to make underestimating her their last.

Locked onto a Republic correctional ship, she’s dragged across the galaxy to repair the very damage she and her fellow Tempest Runners inflicted on it. But as Lourna plans her glorious escape, she makes alliances that grow dangerously close to friendships. Outside the Nihil—separated from her infamous ship, her terrifying arsenal, and her feared name—Lourna must carve her own path. But will it lead to redemption? Or will she emerge as a deadlier threat than ever before?
