I read this when it first came out in the late 80s, which was I believe my first ever hardcover book. I enjoyed it. This book explored some aspects of Vulcan culture that had never been presented before. The story is light reading, like usual for this author, though. I found over the years that I can’t really put up with Diane Duane’s writing and realized that it’s because her writing is juvenile/YA. I enjoyed it–a bit–as a teen, but quickly get bored today. Recently, I’ve had to quit reading a couple of her Star Trek novels. Just got bored with them.
