Re: Sword of Damocles -- comments & opinions ****SPOILERS*****

Geoff, i really enjoyed this book. as with Mr Bennett, i was slightly concerned whether I'd enjoy your work coming in since i was new to your writing, but i did like it. whilst i wouldn't rate it as highly as i did/do OH, it was definitely a good book...

my review on my blog sez:

This is Geoff's first full-length Trek novel and it's a doozy. Told in a non-linear fashion, it starts with the epilogue - which actually takes place partway through the story and ends with the prologue which actually takes place after the epilogue and the rest of the tale.

Don't let that put you off though, it's very well written and it expands on some of the new characters in the Titan series, like Jaza, the science officer and Ra-Hevreii the chief engineer. One review I read slated it for not focussing on Riker and Troi, but not every Trek episode focuses on the captain anyhow.

Whilst the plot is some what convuluted and complex it's worth it, as it's a very compelling story.

Overall, 8/10
to contrast, i gave Resistance 8/10, Q&A 10/10 and Before Dishonour 9/10
