What I remember about the first one was that it was full of girlish purple prose and mary sueness and lots of angst. At one point Troi and Riker have to spend the night naked in a tree or something.. there is some convoluted reason why they are naked. I was always hearing this was the most wonderful Trek book ever. This was back in the days when Troi and her romances was the stuff of shipping wars. It was my first or second ever Trek book and I hadn't yet realized that Trek books write all relationships as though everyone was 15 years old and crying in the bathroom at lunch so I was shocked it was so bad.
I probably have Imzadi II somewhere, I used to buy Treklit in bulk lots on ebay and ended up with several copies of it.
