Dreams of the Raven by Carmen Carter

Dreams of the RavenDreams of the Raven by Carmen Carter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dreams of the Raven is a well written classic style story of the original series, some action and humour with one of the central characters having an issue they have to deal with. In this story it's McCoy who is feeling a little sorry for himself and thanks to his mood and a little alcohol gets himself injured and suffers some memory loss. Not the best time for McCoy but made even worse as the Enterprise has to battle an unknown alien species who it seems are capable of gaining control of vessels and crews with extreme ease. As the Enterprise limps from each encounter the crew have to understand this very aggressive species while dealing with a chief of medicine who is certainly not himself.
This was a enjoyable read, I would have liked to have seen it expanded a little more since there was certainly scope to do so but never the less a good story told well and loved the new Spock/McCoy dynamic that emerged after the doc was injured.
