Although Kirk appeared to perish at the conclusion of Star Trek Generations, the big national bestseller, The Return, revealed the amazing story of Kirk's resurrection. Now, William Shatner brings his distinctive blend of talents as an actor, writer, director, and producer to continue the saga of Jim Kirk's second life -- and to reunite one of the greatest teams of any future century...Star Trek: Avenger. A lethal virogen, inimical to all conventional forms of planet life, threatens the entire Federation with starvation and dissolution. In this moment of Starfleet's greatest need, Captain James T. Kirk, long believed dead, embarks on a desperate quest to find the true source of the mysterious virogen. Elsewhere in the galaxy, Ambassador Spock, his diplomatic efforts stalled by the spread of famine and chaos, returns to his native world of vulcan to confront a mystery of a deeply personal nature -- an investigation that soon leads him to a reunion with a long-lost friend he never expected to see again. Kirk and Spock, together again, must join forces to save a new generation from an awesome menace unleashed by a ruthless interplanetary conspiracy. Full of high adventure and powerful drama, Star Trek: Avenger is an engrossing new Star Trek epic -- and a moving tale of past memories and new hope that only WIlliam Shatner could tell.… (more)

All abour renewal and cycles
This is the third in a Star Trek trilogy, with nanites, sentient Borg, and Vulcan terrorists.
The portrayal of the TNG crew is a little better in this book, perhaps reflecting the better portrayals seen in the TNG movies. It links Kirk, Spock, Picard, and the entire history of the various Enterprises together with Sarek.
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media. ( )

A quite enjoyable trip into nostalgia. This time Kirk, Spock and McCoy save the universe again along with the help of the people of the Enterprise and the crew of a science vessel, the Tobias. There seems to be no right or wrong side to be on - only the methods used for getting the message across differs. A deadly virogen is sweeping the galaxy unchecked and demands sacrifices and renewal of old friendships to prevent the fall of the Federation as a result of the devastation. Only time will tell if this is only temporary or if the lessons have been learned to secure the future. ( )

The third in a sort-of trilogy by Shatner, sort-of (Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens are credited co-writers on the inside) featuring James T. Kirk, alive and well in Picard's time. This novel features the two captains' opposing approaches to solving a Federation-wide plant virus which threatens galaxy-wide famine. Aided by Spock and McCoy, the good guys triumph for now. A fairly mundane approach to what could be a highly enjoyable team of Kirk and Picard, no doubt considerably improved by the co-writers. ( )

Three is a lucky number. This is the third of a trilogy of novels. And I also have three editors to whom I wish to dedicate this novel: 
Kevin Ryan, John Ordover, and Margaret Clark.
Members of the illustrious clan of Simon & Schuster. All good things come in threes. Now just to louse things up, the publisher has asked for another two novels. I've got to find me a couple of editors.
Gar and Judith Reeves-Stevens deserve acolades, not acknowldegements.
What would I have done without them?
