Orion's Hounds and Synthesis are my favorite installments in the Titan series. Taking Wing was ok, The Red King had some moments but was mostly just a sequel to TLE's The Sundered. The other Titan novels really didn't do it for me, and I was about to completely quit reading new novels if them came out, untill I heard James Swallow will do a Titan novel for 'The Fall'. To me, that's a good thing. Since Michael Martin wrote the last two Titan novels which sucked quite a lot if you ask me, Titan just became boring.
