Actually, it's my fave post-Nemesis book. I grew thoroughly sick of the heavy dependence on the Borg (Not all fans are obsessed by these cyborg bogey-men! They've been so overused), and so this one stands out as a favourite. Friedman always had such a good handle on the characters.
I feel the need to point out that there's at least one other post-Nemesis book that is Borg-free.......... *cough*

It's the absurdity that makes it a worthwhile read
But then,that's the point is it not?

Re: TNG: Death in Winter by Michael Jan Friedman Review Thread (Spoile

Well, I suppose that book had to be written, if only to get all that Picard/Crusher stuff in order and so we can move on to more relevant stories. If this was the only TNG relaunch book I had read I would probably say, it's alright. But with Resistance and Q&A two outstanding books followed, so it just pales in comparison.
But I like Borg stories and I love the Q, so you can probably have an entirely different viewpoint if you don't.

Re: TNG: Death in Winter by Michael Jan Friedman Review Thread (Spoile

The only thing I didn't care for about Death in Winter was the Geordi/Worf subplot. It was entirely pointless and entirely out of character. I imagine as long standing high ranking Starfleet officials they'd be used to crew members going on classified missions and wouldn't feel the need to disobey direct orders to find out what was going on. Plus in the end, it didn't even come to anything.

Whoops, of course, how could I forget - "Q&A" was also pretty fun!

I don't remember it in details but I remember that I liked it. I remember also that I regretted that I didn't read the Stargazer books and Reunion before, because I didn't understood all the references.
