This is a two parter and i honestly can't say which is better. There fore i'll judge them as one, and then i have to say without doubt: The Best StarTrek Novels EVER!
The books take you inside Klingon culture and shows you every single thing you always wanted to see about the Klingons. The scenes are so well written, i could visualize every single inch of the places i was taken to. I was almost shouting battlecries with the characters, and cursing out loud when appropriate.
