Richard Poe takes on the emotionless precision of a Vulcan as he narrates this second volume of the saga about the origin of the Vulcan/Romulan split. Continuing where VULCAN'S SOUL BOOK I: EXODUS left off, the story switches back and forth between the 23rd-century Starfleet and the fourth-century crisis that sent many Vulcans into space to find a new home. EXILES suffers the curse of all middle-children in trilogies: lacking resolution, it exists mostly as a bridge between Part 1 and Part 3. One gets the feeling Sherman and Shwartz had to inflate the story in order to fill its length. But Poe's intense voice is engaging, and his delivery, while stiff as a Starfleet science officer, is never flat or monotone. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
