"A smashing untold tale!" John Donnelly of SFX Magazine "The characters are well drawn an dtrue to the originals, the dialouge is finely paced and rings true" Tom Holt of TV Zone Magazine STAR TREK MAGAZINE August/September 2005 "Star Letter: STAR TREK lives on in your local library" [name of article] "A lot of fans are going to spend the next few years awaiting a new series. However, I have the perfect solution for those who want their Star Trek fix-go to your nearest bookshop and start reading the many Star Trek novels...I know that some might say that novels are a poor substitute for a live-action TV series, but I disagree. There's a universe of adventure out there...What I'm saying is that the movies and TV shows are not the be-all and end-all. I truly believe that if Star Trek fans were to check out the many novels published, they would be very happy with what they see and it would help pass the time until Star Trek's inevitable return to the big and small screens." -Stephen Parry, letter to the editor Response: "If you haven't tried picking up a Star Trek book recently, give it a go!" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Please forgive the short review but all i can say is that this is the perfect end to the perfect tribute to the most perfect moment in Trek history. All Trekkies need to read this trilogy, dont worry thou when the time is right, it will call out your name. Just like it did mine. Thus is the magic of Star Trek. 🖖 ❤️

Le Grand Kirk, as it should be !Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 November 2015
A Must-read like the 2 first novels of the trilogy. I will have a 4-star rating here, as for the "Crucible: Spock". but not a 5-star as for the "Crucible: McCoy". But the first one on McCoy was so exceptional. Here you feel exactly what you would expect to find in the mind of Kirk: leadership, caring of people but also the mission, challenging himself and others, and very few regrets; very few but those ones are deep and forever. What I liked very much was the story of the end of Kirk career (and life!) re-invented but without changing the original history of the serie. It all fits together with the 2 first novels and that's great. As expected, this last novel is more action-oriented, and that fits the character of Kirk. I would have liked a bit more deepness and the story (the book) is a bit shorter here compared to the 2 frist books, but again: I recommend it to any trekkie, especially if you love TOS.

Grandioser Leuchtstern auf der literarischen TOS-Leinwand!Reviewed in Germany on 18 December 2007
Mit Kirk: The Star to Every Wandering vollendet David R. George III. seine Crucible-Trilogie, die zweifellos das Herzstück des 40-jährigen TOS- Jubiläums darstellt. Nach die eingehenden Beleuchtung der Charaktere McCoy und Spock, nimmt der Autor nun den letzten des bekannten Trios Captain Kirk unter die Lupe. Ausgehend vom Endkampf mit Dr. Soran nach dem Kirk wieder im Nexus landet, hat er nun die Möglichkeit sein ganzes Leben, neu zu erleben und all seine Fehler zu korrigieren. Dabei wird Kirk nicht so sehr als Womenizer, sondern vielmehr als sensibler Liebhaber dargestellt, der trotz zahlreicher Romanzen, doch allein ist. Da wie bekannt aus der TOS-Folge „The City on the Edge of Forever“ das Leben seiner Liebe Edith Keeler opfern musste, um den Verlauf der Geschichte wiederherzustellen. Nun gefangen im zeitlosem Raum des Nexus wird dies offensichtlich. Geschickt verknüpft der Autor die Serie und Filme bis STAR TREK VII und nimmt nostalgisch Bezug auf sage und schreibe jede einzelne Episode oft offensichtlich oder auch subtil, ein weiteren Grund um TOS-Fanherzen höher schlagen zu lassen. Alles was TOS und seinen Erfolg, seit nunmehr 41 Jahren ausmacht ist hier in dieser einzigartigen Trilogie vereint.

sharing the forty year adventureReviewed in Canada on 21 October 2011
crucible kirk is the last part of the trilogy of the big three. this lets us understand kirk from a different point of view. we relife when he killed gary mitchell, lost edith keller, met his wife anoria from generations. also when he helped picard in the nexus. you find that he never got over losing edith keeler and the effect it had on him so many years later. good book. i perfered spock, but if you like kirk you,ll like this.
