2329: Now a diplomat for the United Federation of Planets, Spock agrees to a bonding with Commander Saavik. More than a betrothal, less than a wedding, the sacred Vulcan rite is attended by both Spock's father, Sarek, and a nervous young Starfleet lieutenant named Jean-Luc Picard. 2344: Ambassador Spock receives a top-secret communication from the heart of the Romulan Empire. Decades before, Spock had met and betrayed an honorable Romulan commander during the so-called "Enterprise incident." Now she needs his help to prevent a catastrophe that could threaten the peace of the entire quadrant. Spock risks everything by traveling incognito to Romulus itself, but his covert mission becomes even more perilous when Saavik crosses the Neutral Zone to rescue him. Enmeshed in the treacherous political intrigues of the Romulan capital, undone by a fire that grows ever hotter within his blood, Spock must use all his logic and experience to survive a crisis that will ultimately determine the fate of empires. Vulcan's Heart is a powerful tale that explores an untold turning point in the ongoing saga of Spock and the world of Vulcan.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Leonard Nimoy on Vulcan's Forge A dramatic tale, one that answers long-standing questions about Spock's life choices. Fascinating!
“The narrative moves with real gusto, casually throwing in some impressive world-building...Sherman and Schwartz...are adroit at creating a thoroughly rounded, conflicted, and sympathetic portrait of our favorite Vulcan.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
“This...entry in the Star Trek canon should delight romance fans.”  Publishers Weekly
“Sherman and Schwartz develop familiar Star Trek characters and background in realistic detail while remaining faithful to the underlying concepts and values of the Star Trek universe. Their enthralling novel should attract non-Trekkers in appreciable numbers and, of course, Trekkers in swarms and hordes.   Booklist
“This book boldly goes where most movie/TV tie-ins do not venture. Not only is it a good read with multiple story lines but it is also written in a compelling manner. Interesting, well-developed characters make this a memorable novel that stands on its own. Combining action, romance, and many of the characters and places from the original Star Trek, it’s sure to be a hit.” School Library Journal
