Finished A Time to Sow
on the train this morning. Quite enjoyable, but then I'm predisposed to liking Dilmore and Ward from Vanguard
. I actually think the book does one of the best jobs of utilizing all the crew, too. (Troi seems a little underused, but she has two good scenes. And I imagine she'll have some more to do in the second book.)
Got about two chapters into A Time to Harvest
which has a really cool Riker chapter where's being all encouraging/mentoring.
It's been a long time, but I tried re-reading Dujonian's Hoard
recently and couldn't get through more than 15 pages.
