Death’s Angel by Kathleen Sky (1981)

Death’s Angel

Yet another novel rehashing already written plotlines! This is a total copy of “Journey to Babel”, but with a bit different species to play with; Sarek, as an ambassador, had to be on board, too; Murder is plentiful too, and to add insult to injury, the author inserts herself (a wish-fulfilling stand-in for the character, called a “Mary Sue”) as a powerful, secret agent that romances Kirk!

Basically this is an “authorized Fan Fiction” where the author wrecks havoc with the characterizations and puts herself in a pulpy mystery & romance novel. The text is slow, hard to read through, and the ambassador characters are a big distraction.

The plot is hard to follow, as the story goes all over the place, and the “mystery” part of it is not satisfying at all. I had a hard time reading through it, the secret agent character is highly annoying, it just bored me through it. It got to the moment I just sped-read through it just to finish it off. This one is not worth your time or your effort. Not the worst I’ve seen, but a bit worse than mediocre.
