Just finished my copy of Brinkmanship.
I enjoyed it, it was an engaging storyline that drove the Typhon Pact arc along but provided an interesting view along the way.
The characters were nailed, and the new characters were as enjoyable to read and learn about.
(I especially enjoyed the brief scene with Garak and Bacco, which is the proof I point to back my above statement)
Nice to see Dr Crusher in the forefront here and hope that this opens a whole new arc for her character to be picked back up by the author or by another in the near future.
I scored this book: Above Average.
