There are some really hostile reviews of this on GR.  Believe me, it's not that bad.  Sure, Yep has a slightly different take on Spock's inner life than some other authors, and sure, the story was quite a bit about the prince and the other characters, giving Kirk & McCoy just cameos, but it was a fun adventure with some interesting ideas.  Give it a shot.

Spock and Sulu are trapped on a planet during a revolution. A fairly good book. ( )
  dswaddell | Jun 7, 2011 |
A decent but unremarkable swashbuckling Star Trek adventure in which Spock and Sulu, alone on a planet remimiscent of 17th century England or France, must help a prince resist a rebellion. There is some interesting interplay between Spock and Sulu, and it is intriguing when Sulu finally gets to live his dream of being a swashbuckling swordsman. But that's about it. The cover is by Boris, a revered fantasy artist, but I'm darned if I can see why. ( )

Sulu, Swordsman

The bandit yelled its pain and Sulu slid his blade free. There was blood on the point. From somewhere to his left, another bandit screamed - Urmi's work. the prince was still busy with Lord Tayu.

Panting for breath, Sulu turned back to the other bandits. but they weren't nearly as enthusiastic as they had been before.

Finally, a large man with a huge cutlass started toward Sulu. And Sulu tensed. the man's cutlass was large enough to break Sulu's own blade if he weren't careful. But on the other hand, it ought to be a clumsier weapon. It would be a test of Sulu's own quickness - [and perhaps his luck ....
