Re: Can you skip Fallen Gods?

Fallen Gods was mediocre at best. It was marginally better than the previous Titan-centric novel, Seize the Fire. As others have already said, it isn't connected to Brinkmanship at all; they can be ready independent of one another. I haven't started the Cold Equations series yet, but I can't imagine the two stories being connected in any significant way. There is a plot twist introduced in Fallen Gods that ties in with the Andorians. I suspect that this will be expanded up on in a future novel. So there is a connection to the larger Treklit verse and the Typhon Pact-related events that have taken place, but it is the "B" story and not the primary focus.
