    Good, but not great.

    I liked this one better than Yesterday s Son Crispin fleshes out her original character, Zar, as well as the culture he is working within, which I liked.


    I was very surprised that I had not recorded this earlier.Excellent book The All my yesterday s series is definitely one of the all time me best StarTrek TOS mini series ever Great characters that stay true to the original story line.

    I think that this is one of my very favorite books in the Star Trek TOS This is a wonderful ending to the Yesterday Saga I wish that there had been some way to have other adventures with Zar and Wynn I always wished that he and Spock could have stayed together in the same time I also wish that Zar had been able to meet Amanda and Sarek, As a warning there are some very sad parts to this story so tissues may be needed.It has been 14.5 years since the crew of the Enterprise has seen Zar Kirk has b [...]


    This was a fantastic addition to the Star Trek universe The character voices were spot on and the adventure felt as compelling as one of the TV episodes I was excited to see Zar again and I enjoyed how his story played out.


    Pretty good sequel The first one put Zar in Spock s world and this one did the reverse It was great to see their dynamic and how much their characters had grown since they last saw each other.

    I love this book, easily a five star novel and improves on every aspect of Anns first tale about Zar.Throughout the galaxy stars are dying long before their time, the cause is traced back to Gateway the world where the Guardian of Forever exists Thanks to their success with dealing with this time portal the crew of the Enterprise are sent to find out why time waves emanating from this world are tearing the fabric of space apart On the long dead world they discover the portal is unresponsive but [...]


    On it s own Time for Yesterday by A.C Crispin is a decent, fun Star Trek novel whether one has read it s precursor novel Yesterday s Son With that said, one s enjoyment of the novel and understanding of the interactions between Kirk, Spock, and McCoy as well as the majority of the TOS Enterprise crew with Zar can only come after having read Yesterday s Son The book contains two plots that cross with one another thanks to time travel, but it s the initial one of the malfunctioning Guardian of For [...]

    I found myself enjoying this book, as much for the viewpoint of the characters, clearly forwarded from their five year mission, as anything else Solidly written with the predictable, comforting Trek patina of the ocket books of the era, this was a solidly readable and memorable work.

    Six years after her literary debut with Yesterday s Son A.C Crispin returned to the Star Trek universe with an ambitious sequel to her firstborn as well as the classic Trek episodes City on the Edge of Forever and All Our Yesterdays Time for Yesterday shows a mature and talented Crispin, one whose prose has gained depth and nuance Her language is richer than before, her plot complex There are some obvious weak points here as well, especially concerning the structure of the plot Events seem som [...]

    Yikes, this one got CRAZY abridged for the audio book They trimmed it down to a measly 90 minutes, which is just not enough length to gain any sort of traction with the story It s like, OMG here s all the setup if you haven t read the book this is a sequel to I hadn t OMG time waves are going to destroy all of reality now we re back on the world from City on the Edge of Forever now we re defeating omnipotent aliens like you do now we re in the past changing history, but it s OK THE END Yet, anno [...]


    It was a nice followup to the previous son of Spock book.In the beginning i had some difficulties adjusting to the characters, they didn t seem believable but after a few chapters I or the author became comfortable Its a big TOS like story with god like entities and end of the universe scenarios, but also a story of war and love and time travel.All in all, action and characterization packed into a nice story The ebook was badly edited, many errors and formatting that managed to affect my enjoym [...]

    A strong sequel to Yesterday s Son, continuing the story of Zar in the distant past of Sarpeidion Crispin creates an entertaining blend of Trek continuity and medieval adventure, and further fleshes out her exploration of the Guardian of Forever The explanation and resolution of the Guardian s malfunctioning was the sole downside of the book, falling into yet another Kirk talks all powerful beings into behaving trap, but as this is a relatively minor portion of the story, it s not an unforgivabl [...]


    God this book is TERRIBLY written At first it was fun and reminiscent of a star trek episode, with bad dialogue and cheesy sound effects, but Zar s hijacking fantasy tropes medieval marriage cum battle Not so forgivable Still read by James Doohan and Leonard Nimoy I may need Star Trek abridged single cassettes scavenged from the clearance section.


    It s been years since I ve read this book I loved the whole Spock having emotions, has sex with a non Vulcan shock , and has an illegitimate child of which he was not aware This is of the story of his son Zar, than of the original Star Trek trio However, I enjoyed the follow up of Zar s story from Yesterday s Son I love emotional Spock

    Ulrich Krieghund

    I did not enjoy this as much as the first novel A few spoilers followIt seems that the crew did a great deal of just standing around in this one I did not find the long mind meld with the Guardian all that compelling Also, the ancient beings of immense power were so flighty that they made Trelane, the Squire of Gothos seem full of gravitas in comparison.


    Sequel to Yesterday s Son and a good follow up to what happened to Zar and the life he went back to The Guardian of Forever is sending out waves of time displacement, causing havoc in the galaxy, and some of the best telepaths can t reach or communicate with it Time to reach back in history and find Zar and see what he can do Good plot and characters.


    Once I read Yesterday s Son, there was no way I couldn t read the sequel This one was a wee bit meaty than the first one and in general you could see the toll the passage of time had taken on all the main characters So while it wasn t really as mindlessly fun, it certainly was a pleasant visit back with mature and developed characters.


    This is something I always grab for a bit of light reading It s a good lead in to The Wrath of Khan and it s interesting to see Spock s relationship with a son that s even impossible than Kirk s.


    Not one of my of favorite ST TOS books, and definitely not as good as Crispin s Yesterday s Son , which it is the sequel to Part of my problem could be that I read a very poorly formatted Kindle version of this book that set me back 7.99.


    This book is AMAZING I love the way this author writes the characters You can easily tell that she knows and loves them and she does them all justice And her plot is awesome I love this idea for a Star Trek book I was smiling for hours after I finished it


    Fantastic sequel, much character depth with a complex saga like story Even better than book one, this was a fun trek adventure Yes it is a bit fan ish in that it references multiple TOS episodes, but considering who would read the book, it s warranted and not overdone Thumbs up

    Joe Pranaitis

    I really enjoyed this adventure and how it forshadowed Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan But I also liked the fact that we finally saw what happened to Spock s son Zar even though Spock himself decides not to view the recording that he made after saving his son and returned back to the Enterprise.

    Daniel Kukwa

    Much detailed and ambitious than Yesterday s Son AC Crispin s follow up novel creates a rich and exotic world that is thoroughly exploredd Spock s character has never been handled so well Extremely satisfying.


    Excellent sequel to Yesterdays Son I m in love with Zar and Spock.

    David Nadolny

    a star trek book, not the best, not the worst

    Robert Premeaux

    Full of cliches but still good Star Trek And the Gateway twists are cool.


    I very much enjoyed Crispin s Yesterday s Son, which introduced Spock s son A Time for Yesterday is the sequel and, if anything, is even better than the first book I enjoyed it very much.


    AC Crispin Spock Zar Always a classic.

    Michael J LePage
