Re: TP: Seize the Fire by Michael A. Martin Review Thread (Spoilers!)
I just started reading this a few days ago, and while I haven't found it utterly unreadable I've already got some issue with it after only 20something pages. First of all I'm just not a fan of Michael A. Martin's writing style. He just seems to overwrite everything. For instance less than 2 pages after he first introduces Vale and explains who she he goes through it all again when she chimes in on a conversation. All I could think as I read it was "Yeah, we already know, you just told us that".
Then there's the fact that Riker doesn't trust a scan result because it came from White-Blue and Torvig. So if he doesn't trust White-Blue why did he let him stay aboard the ship. And poor Torvig, after everything the little guy's has done his crew mates still don't like him.
