Pawns and Symbols book.

Pawns and Symbols book. Larson's protagonist Jean Czerny may or may no I read a lot of Star Trek tie-in novels in my teens, and "Pawns and Symbols" was one of the few that made a lingering impression to an extend that I picked it up years later as an adult. It's set in TOS canon, but only marginally relates to Kirk & co (there's a sub-plot with a Romulan woman on board of the Enterprise that seems largely filler material) while the main plot is based on an original character who gets stranded in the Klingon Empire.

Pawns and Symbols - Majliss Larson. Barely two centimeters of water in the beaker since morning. Hunger no longer bothered her but she was very thirsty. She had to depend on ground water that seeped through the wreckage and dripped from the beam above her column. Drop by crystal drop it emerged from the column. She poured out half and drank it. Not enough. Listlessly, she picked up her lab log and looked at the last few entries.

I enjoyed this book. That is why I gave it the rating I did. There was nothing I disliked about the story. It was fun meeting up with familiar characters, and I enjoyed meeting interesting new ones. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction, especially the Star Trek kind.
The star rating is for the story NOT for the editing, which was non-existent. There was one thing about this book this book that nearly drove me crazy! Whoever typed this book must have had their eyes closed. There are too many typing errors to count. The punctuation is a mess. Words in sentences are all mixed up so the sentence makes no sense at all. Letters are left out of words. This book was obviously not edited after it was typed. I would be ashamed to publish it. It is a shame that one's enjoyment of a good story was interrupted by having to figure out what a scrambled sentence meant or what word was supposed to be there but wasn't.

If you like Star Trek and appreciate a good Klingon story - this is the read for you! Also Chekov has an affair with a...nah - I won't spoil it for you :)

I picked this book up along with the Seven Deadly Sins anthology because I wanted to get some good TOS klingon stories. I read this one second.

The story is about Jean Czerny, a specialist on Sherman's planet who has been abducted by Kang following a disaster. The main plot is essentially her exploration of Klingon culture as depicted by Larson. She visits a few planets, interacts with Klingon civilians, and gets a perspective on this alternate Klingon culture, religion, and agricultural system. Eventually there is a Klingon plot concerning her, but this doesn't really come into play until halfway into the story.

It isn't hard to see Czerny as a Mary sue character with how much goodwill and friendliness there is in the book. Czerny gets along remarkably well with the Klingons, and even gains Kang's personal attentions early in the story. The only challenges Czerny faces in her venture are Tirax (the one klingon who won't be friendly to her) and Kang's fickle motivations.

The TOS leads have only one significant chapter, where they are rescuing a sabotaged Romulan Warbird. Even here all Spock needs to do is mind-meld away the fear from the lone survivor to let her to save the Enterprise from a Romulan warhead and enter a short-lived fling with Checkov. Otherwise this aside goes nowhere and has very little to do with the rest of the plot.

In the end this read about as well as most fan-fiction you could find online. I was hoping for more tensions between the Klingons and lone human, but the result fells too goofy and disappointing. Pick it up if you'd like a light adventure or an interesting look at an alternate interpretation of Klingon culture.

This review needs a title! Two choices: A guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless. Or: Yes, Jean Czerny is a Mary Sue. Yes, this is fanfic. It's a good story, anyway!

In brief, I'd like to point you to Matthew Schiariti's review. He does a good job pointing out the book's strengths and weaknesses, and I agree with him. In particular, I, too, loved the exploration of "classic", pre-ridge Klingon society, and loved that almost no one in the book was exactly what they seemed to be. Larson doesn't do this sort of thing quite as well as Megan Whalen Turner, true. She still handles her main plot pretty well.

She also does a good job with her Klingons. Whereas I could never understand, watching TNG and DS9, why the heck the Klingons hadn't blown themselves to kingdom come ages ago, Larson gives us a workable society with bonds and restraints, and positive as well as negatives. Finally, I thought Larson did a fine job exploring two of my three favorite TOS Klingons, Kang and Mara, and I liked her original characters - even Jean Czerny, most of the way through. It wasn't till the last sections that I began to get irritated with her. And, in the end, she does learn, as a true Mary Sue would not. The whole plot tends towards the acknowledgement she finally makes to Kang - and that acknowledgement is heartfelt and sincere.

Aernath, Larson's second original MC, basically rocks. He's a Klingon who's not a warrior, but who accepts the soldier's ethos without question. He's clever, funny at times, fiercely loyal, and - as Paul Delgardie said of Peter Wimsey - he's got the devil's own pluck, the sort of courage that sees the risks clearly and takes them anyway.

I'll have more to say about this book and its strengths and weaknesses elsewhere. As to the rating, as I've said before, I'm trying to judge books based on what they try to achieve. Other four star books have more literary merit than this one. It's a series novel based on a TV show, and its flaws are obvious, but so are its strengths. I thoroughly enjoyed it when I first read it more than twenty years ago, and I found it worth rereading. My two cents!
