Re: When did New Frontier "Jump the Shark"?

I finally got around to reading "Treason." It's been sitting on my shelf since it was released 5 years ago, and I just never felt terribly excited to read it. After the time jump, I just didn't enjoy the series the way that I had prior.

I have to say, though, I that really enjoyed this book. I blew through it in a day, which I never do. It usually takes me weeks to read a novel, but I just kept plowing through it this afternoon.

My biggest complain about the more recent entries had been the split up of the crew, plus the addition of so many new characters. I liked that, for the most part, "Treason" focused mostly on the original characters from the beginning of the series: Mac, Shelby, Soleta, Selar, Lefler, and Burgoyne. AND it managed to bring them all back together again! Even though all these characters had separated and had their own journeys, and even though some of them were at odds with each other, it almost felt like coming home.

I'm actually excited to read "Blind Man's Bluff" now!
