Description

Eighteen years ago the Starship Enterprise thwarted an alien invasion from another universe, and Captain Robert April took possession of the interdimensional transfer device that made it possible. Since then each captain of the Enterprise, from Christopher Pike to James T. Kirk, has guarded this secret with his life.

Now Romulan agents have succeeded in stealing the device and are using it to banish Ambassador Sarek and Councillor Gorkon to an unknown realm in the midst of their groundbreaking Federation-Klingon peace negotiations. With time running out as interstellar war looms in one universe - and alien forces marshal in another - will Captain Kirk and his crew preserve the tenuous peace and reclaim the key between the dimensions?

Disappointing trilogy

Given the numerous books written about the Star Trek universe and the dearth of unabridged audio versions available to fans, it's surprising that this trilogy was considered worthy to be among the unabridged Star Trek audiobooks offered by Audible. The writing was not anywhere near as well-done as works by many other authors of Star Trek fiction. The dialogue of the main characters felt juvenile and stilted. PLEASE, can't we get more unabridged Star Trek audiobooks?

Weak

Good narrator, interesting story, terrible dialogue. I heard they wrote these books on a very tight deadline. It shows.

Struggled to Finish

As a fan of the original Star Trek TV series it was just okay overall and I struggled to listen to it all the way through. (The first book in the series was really good, the second is the same as the third.) The story is okay, but you have to be fan to really like it. Robert Petkoff's performance is the best part. He has each Star Trek character down and is near spot-on with the accents. I would only recommend this book to Star Trek fans.

Great ending to the trilogy

I enjoyed all three books of this series. The third was better than the second but not as good as the first.

Worth a listen

Book three ties up everything nicely. Moves along a little faster than the second. It’s worth a listen if you are a fan. Robert P does a stellar job as always. He helps put you in the setting.

The last book in the series was

the best! The journey of the Enterprise is never easy. The third and final chapter is the conclusion of an 18 year secret that previous captain's of the Enterprise knew. Robert Petkoff the narrator performance of all the characters on the Enterprise was excellent. Read all 3 books and enjoy the journey.

Not as good as book 1, better than book 2

Everything is relative, and while none of the books in the series were great, this one was much better than the second. I listened to it only for closure and my expectations weren't high going in.

Overall, I think only a Star Trek fan could tolerate it, though they might cry at the illogical storylines.

Just like the first book we've gone astray

What did you like best about Purgatory's Key? What did you like least?

The best was the little bit of time spent with the original series crew. The least was all the time spent away from the crew.

Would you recommend Purgatory's Key to your friends? Why or why not?

no, I don't think so

What three words best describe Robert Petkoff’s performance?

women's voices wrong

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

There is no way this is ever going to be made into a movie so, no.

Any additional comments?

Disappointing part 2 of a 3 part series.

Good not great

Where does Purgatory's Key rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'll compare to book 1 and 2 of this series: book 3 is easily the weakest of the 3. It's mildly entertaining, but felt like a regurgitation of the first two books. Some good action here and there, decent interactions among the characters, but overall the book only served to conclude the overall story arc. With some editing, books 2 and 3 could easily have been combined.

If you’ve listened to books by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore before, how does this one compare?

This is my first by the authors.

Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

In book 3, I enjoyed his Checkov performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It started off strong, but it felt like work about a quarter into the book.

Last book - had to get it... barely worth it...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you read the first two, you sort of have to read the third. As a lifelong Trekkie I can deal with some disappointment. Overall, the end story-line was entirely predictable and boring. The character interactions are the the only highlight. I suppose if you have come this far with book 2 then completing the series is not a total waste of money, after all its still Star Trek!
