In my opinion, cutting The Romulan War
back to two books was detrimental to its overall quality. I loved Beneath the Raptor's Wing
, but To Brave the Storm
was frustrating, because it lost the measured, in-depth coverage and broad canvas of the first. Instead it felt rushed; interesting developments barely had time to register before we were on to the next event. It really does seem like two books worth of material forced into one, sadly.
