According to J. Michael Straczynski, the show runner, writer, and producer of the Babylon 5 TV series, the contents of this book are canon. The book is the story of Jeffrey Sinclair from the time he leaves Babylon 5 to become the Ambassador to Minbar until the key event of his taking Babylon 4 through the time rift 1,000 years into the past to enable the defeat of the Shadows in the past and the founding of the Rangers and the Grey Council. It's an interesting story and it does fill in many holes about things you likely had wondered about. At the same time, it left me unsettled. I wanted to know much much more about Sinclair's activities in the past after he took Babylon 4 back into history. There is so much that could have been told, but isn't. That's why this is a 4 star book and not a 5 star book. However, if, like me, you love Babylon 5, you will like this book. ( )

This book fits well with the B5 story, mostly explaining what happened to Sinclair and his Sakai, his fiancee. It does well in reminding us of many of the sayings of various Minbari. It also does well in reminding us of the themes for which I enjoyed B5: workers rights, equality, compassion.

"delight, respect, and compassion" : Christian-Jewish Deut.4:24 views via shared struggle, as portrayed using Minbari and 'Earth' religions (I am reminded of the episode in which Sinclair lines up all of the 'dominant religions' of earth, as represented by an alphabetically ordered line of people stretching all the way down the main corridor. That was brilliant. And while this book may not be the best in literary style, it is certainly worth reading, if only to remember that duty and honor are based in respect and compassion.
Peace,

I picked up this book for a couple bucks somewhere because I had heard it was one of the few decent books in the B5 novel series. As it turns out, "decent" is a pretty good word for it - I enjoyed reading it, but ultimately it's pretty forgettable. It was fun to learn more about Jeffrey Sinclair, a character I would have liked to have seen more of on the show.

I though the book's weakest point was its lack of a cohesive central arc. While it's often hard to give characters a good storyline without tampering with canon, there was a ready-made story here: the progression of Sinclair's character from where we left him in Season 1 ("Nothing is the same anymore") to the guy we saw in Season 3 ("the arrow that springs from the bow"). There was some of this in the novel, but nowhere near as much as I expected. The main purpose of the book seems to be to explain away various slight discontinuities in the series, which was handled well and was more fun than it sounds. Drennan has a good enough understanding of the characters that there were few problems in that department. I was intrigued by what she did with Rathenn - her characterization of him doesn't quite fit the impression I got from the show, but it doesn't actually contradict what's shown either, just extrapolates in a different direction.

I'd reccomend this to fans of B5 who have time for some light fluff reading on their hands. As long as you don't expect too much from this novel, you'll probably have fun reading it. ( )
