I enjoyed this book as I did book 1, however, I felt that the conclusion was much too short and also ended too easily. I expected a better ending. The fact that two books were concluded within 8 pages was disappointing, but it was still a good read.

Good easy reading story, but you need book #1 first.

"This is a well-written book based an the moderately interesting (but completely implausible) concept of a world without gravity that nonetheless has a "native" species that is humanoid. Even given that it eventually admits that they are not truly native to the planet, I would expect them, over the millennia that they have inhabited the planet, to have diverged more from the human norm than they have. The book also features Reg Barklay prominently, which I consider a bug rather than a feature; if you LIKE the character of Barkley, you might consider this a four-star review, although even then I'm not so sure. And as a final drawback, it is a "continued next time" story, which I've always hated. Again, if you don't share my dislike of books that "end" in mid-story and require us to buy another book to see the end of the story, take my rating with a grain of salt."

That was what I said after the first book of the series; it's still all true now. But what was particularly distressing is that the conclusion to this story was even less satisfying than the non-conclusion at the end of book one; the plot twists were predictable, the villains obvious, and the solution to the problem a deus ex machina (or more accurately, a deus ex Betazoid). So I can't even say that it was well-written anymore. I expect better of John Vornholt.

When I first saw the cover of this book, I thought it was some cheap "Star Trek" literature with its only function to fill in the gap between January and March. (The book was published in February.) Nevertheless, after some thinking, I bought Gemworld 1 and 2 and read them from the beginning of the first chapter of Book 1 to the last one of Book 2. After maybe page 10 of Book 1 I couldn't put it away anymore. I simply had to read it and look what happens next. The return of Melora Pazlar was really surprising but it added to both books an interesting element that pushed the action forward. Reginald Barcley's presence made the "Star Trek" universe less perfect and, as a result, the characters more like ourselves. The passionate relationship of those remarkable people increased the value of the novel even more.
Additionally, I found Gemworld itself a fascinating planet that should have been shown in one of the TV series. Imagine a world without gravity built of cristals with six completely different intelligent species living on it, every one of them unique in its own way, but still cooperating with each other. That picture makes me dream every time I think of it.
The only negative point about these books was Vornholt's attitude toward the Enterprise and her senior officers. As far as I can tell, only Deanna Troi played an important role in the novel. The rest, including Captain Picard and Data, appeared on the covers and also in the books themselves, but both didn't act as we expected them to after watching "The Next Generation" for seven years. Barclay, Melora, Troi and Gemworld as the stage of all major events were principal characters of the novel series and they did their job well. All in all I like this book very much and recommend it to everybody who likes reading science-fiction and "Star Trek".

As with the first book of this mini duology, John Vornholt continues to expound on the wonderful world he has created in Gemworld. In the first book he described only a few of the quite interesting and different species of Gemworld. In book two, he craftily brings the remaining species into the spotlight. As with book one of the Gemworld mini duology and with all of his previous novels, John Vornholt again proves that he can create whole new microcosms within the Star Trek universe, capitalizing on the possibilities of the twenty fourth century and what the future of space travel can entail. Of the entire myriad of outstanding Star Trek authors, John Vornholt stands out in the arena of bringing the oddest of creatures to sentience and cunningly scribing them into a well thought and compelling story or stories.
The premise:
Continuing where Star Trek # 58 Gemworld Book One left off, Captain Picard, Lieutenant Melora Pazlar and the most unlikely of heroes Lieutenant Reginald Barclay are deep in the quagmire of trying to save Melora's home world of Gemworld. Facing a dimensional rift that is seemingly encompassing the entirety of the planet, deceit and deception of those they're trying to help and no apparent means of escape, Captain Picard and crew must find a way to gather the remaining crystals from all six of the sentient species inhabiting Gemworld in order to shut down the shell protecting Gemworld. Combine all of these possibilities and it all adds up to another fairly compelling story by one of Star Trek's better authors.
I highly recommend this mini duology to those who read as many or all of the Star Trek novels and to those who are casual Trek readers. {ssintrepid}
