Part two of the new Seekers series, which is itself part two of the Vanguard epic.
This book takes up where Seekers 1 left off. The Sagittarius is stranded on the surface while the Endeavour has arrived to help in a rescue and to solve the mystery of the Tomol, who are now running amok and making a large nuisance of themselves.
To be honest, this book was a bit of a one-note experience. The Tomol keep evolving, gaining new powers and generally making things more and more dangerous for the humans. This goes on for well over 200 pages; just more and more power gains until the Tomol have evolved into X-Men. It was a bit much, especially considering the Klingons were also in orbit, trying to be menacing but largely being ignored by Ward & Dilmore.
There was something about this book that just fell a bit flat, for me. The end was satisfying in that Star Trek way and I enjoyed THAT enough to say it was a good read. But, yea, those middle 200 pages were a bit of a slog.
