THE BURNING HOUSE is disappointingly the last of the Klingon Empire/I.K.S Gorkon novels and while it ends on a satisfying note, I can't help but think of the New Frontier novels by Peter David which lasted for a decade. It's perhaps better to quit while you're ahead but the fact there are "only" four books in the series disappoints me greatly. I am almost never lacking for Klingon content and thus will have to turn to other sources in order to get my fix.The premise for this book is Captain Klag [...]

I absolutely loved this series as a whole, but the last book didn't measure up for me. Mostly, I'm not a fan of "a slice of life" stories, and that's what the majority of this book is about. There were, however, some issues that I thought harmed the book as a whole.Rodek didn't really feel in character throughout the book for me. I didn't buy into his thought process during the event we've been waiting for for over 6 books now. It was suppose to be the biggest build up in the book, considering i [...]

I love Trek and I love Klingons, but beyond Worf and a very few other Klingons who were on for several episodes, I don’t typically remember their names or which warrior was who. This novel which is set on Q’o’nos, and is book # 4 in the IKS Gorkon series, of which I have only read book #1, should have been very hard for me to follow, but was instead thoroughly enjoyable and a fun ride. It's been said that it's through watching people that are *not* human, we ourselves learn more about what [...]

I've put off reading Mr. DeCandido for too long, it seems. This book was awesome from beginning to end. A Burning House follows the exploits of a group of Klingon's on shore leave. These particular Klingons have won glory for the Empire aboard the IKS Gorkon. Things were going okay but could be better. For the majority of these characters, life gets a whole lot worse before it gets better. I don't want to say too much about the various plot strings except to say they were very well done. The boo [...]

I've never had a particular passion for the Klingons - you won't find me dressed up as one at a convention or learning the language in my free time. (Nor did I get married with a bat'lethyou have to wonder about people who did.) I did enjoy this book though. This is technically the end of the I.K.S. Gorkon series, but it serves as a standalone novel also (which is good since I haven't read the Gorkon series). The ship returns to Qo'noS and the crew delve into everyday life, complete with politic [...]

Klingon life.Loved the way this author gives a view into everyday life of Klingon society. Unlike other stories that involved Klingon this novel covers Klingon who aren't warriors and that is refreshing to me. Sure this book has Klingon warriors but you see how the Klingon culture isn't just about fighting an enemy to bring honor, in fact you get a wonderful story about farm life, business, poverty, of klingons and the the way they handle Life. While there isn't much action it is an awesome stor [...]

Another in a series of books looking at events on the Klingon side of the Star Trek universe. It continues to focus on the the officers and crewmen aboard a Klingon starship, and in government. Some of the characters have been on TV before, and a few are new, but all are interesting and unique and worthy of following.

bIyIntaH 'e' Dachoqbe'!Great story, makes the series better. Along with the rest of Klindom and Trekkers in general KRAD's novels leave me wanting more with each reading. IKV Gorkon, and the Klingon Empire series are among of the best series of Star Trek novels to have on your shelf.

For those who are fans of Klingon "culture", this might (or might not) rate another star. For old-line Star Trek fans like me, who prefer their alienated aliens vulcan, it is a moderately interesting look into the lives of the crew of the Gorkon, but mostly it just reinforces just what we hate about Klingon society.

This is actually the first Trek side story I've read.Coming from someone who stopped watching DS9 a few episodes before Jadzia's death and not having prior knowledge of any other book storylines, I have to say it doesn't leave you confused much as far as plot goes. The fact that it is Keith who wrote this and the return of Rodek/Kurn is really made me won me over though.

This tetralogy is an enjoyable look at Klingon culture (one of the more interesting cultures in the StarTrek universe) and a satisfying summer read in between other concerns. I recommend Keith Decandido's StarTrek writing above many others who write in that universe! Happy August reading!

I started this before Lent, then set it aside until after Easter. I had to re-read everything! It's good to see the crew of the Gorkon again. I wonder whose house will burn?
