Typhon Pact: Should I keep going?

Hello fellow readers,

I took a bit of a break from TrekLit after finishing the Destiny trilogy- I thought it was great, but after pounding through the TNG relaunch and all of the Titan books up to that point, I needed a little breather.

So I had my breather, and got back into it by reading 'Losing the Peace' and then 'Zero Sum Game'. Was thoroughly bored by both. I had to go back and read the synopsis of Losing the Peace to see if I had read it or not, and even after reading that I still could barely remember it- not a good sign. ZSG took me many months to read, which is always the sign of a book that has failed to grip me (usually it takes me about a week).

I'm trying to figure out if this is a problem with the books, or me, and could use your help. Is the next book in the series (Seize the Fire) more highly regarded than ZSG? Is it a 'return to form'? Or is ZSG quite highly regarded, and I just need to take a longer break from Trek Lit? I love the Trek universe and want to keep on reading, but if it's as much as a slog as the last two were, I don't think I'll bother.

Thoughts for/against welcome- thanks.
