I'm still having a hell of a time getting through DRG3's Allegiance in Exile for some reason. In the meantime I started and finished both Book 2 of the Kirk/Gary Mitchell trilogy by MJF and Recovery, the final "Lost Years" book by J.M. Dillard. I really enjoyed both books. I've never checked out the second or third LY stories, so i'll probably go there next along with the third book in the Kirk/Mitchell trilogy.
