Anyone else read any of these three? What did you think?
I finished Covenant just two days ago!

Already talked about my dislike for TEE. Actually turned out I had never read The Klingon Gambit(which I guess must have had its blurb written well in advance since it was rather dissimilar from the book). I enjoyed the idea of it - the whole andorian/city bit was very clever, and mccoy cracked me up, but Kirk was terribly written given what the orb was supposed to have done to him.

Covenant of the Crown was fairly fun, but could probably have done with being a bigger book - there were certainly the ideas for one, so it ended up feeling slightly rushed to me, but other then that it was very good.

In the next couple of days, I’ll post some mini-reviews of the next three books I read:
The Wrath of Khan novelization
Yesterday’s Son
The Search for Spock novelization
Heh, and here's me having just bought(and with great reluctance given how bad Triangle is) "The Prometheus Design".

Won't be able to chime in with the novelisations, but I do have Yesterday's Son.
