The Left Hand of Destiny: Book Two


"The true test of a warrior is not is within." Sins of the past collide with hopes for the future as Martok fights for the right to lead the Klingon Empire. With the secret of his usurper exposed, the ousted chancellor and his ragtag band of followers embark on a desperate plan to retake the empire. But while Worf, Ezri Dax, and the crew of the IKS Rotarran go in search of the Klingons' most revered icon of power, Martok is dealt the most crushing blow of all – driving him to make his final stand on the ice-strewn cliffs of sacred Boreth. As that frozen world reverberates with the song of armies and bat'leths clashing, the mystery of Martok's past, and the future of the Klingon Empire, is revealed.

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.
