Ael t'Rlailiiu is a noble and dangerous Romulan commander. But when the Romulans kidnap Vulcans to genetically harness their psionic power, Ael decides on treason. Captain James T. Kirk, her old enemy, joins her in a secret pact to destroy the research laboratory and free the captive Vulcans. When the Romulans discover their plan, the Neutral Zone seethes with schemes and counter-schemes, sabotage, and war. Along the way, the long-hidden secret history of the Romulan people - the Rihannsu - is revealed, back to the tragic schism that sundered the people of Mr Spock's home planet, Vulcan, thousands of years ago. Coinciding with the release of the new Rihannsu novel, THE EMPTY CHAIR, these novels combine thought-provoking political intrigue, military action, intense characterization, and brisk pace. Originally published as four separate books - MY ENEMY, MY ALLY; THE ROMULAN WAY; SWORDHUNT and HONOR BLADE - this collection is an excellent way for longtime readers to revisit some of the all-time bestselling classics of Star Trek fiction, and an opportunity to introduce a new generation of readers to these rich and remarkable stories.
