Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently reading:
Herrscher des Mars (Maddrax #357)
TNG: Diplomatic Implausibility - as part of my Klingon reading, a followup to Kahless and The Left Hand of Destiny, and leading into I.K.S. Gorkon/Klingon Empire.

Because I've recently finished DS9 Season 9 and nudged by The Crimson Shadow, The Never-Ending Sacrifice moved up on my to-read pile - which still consists of dozens, maybe hundreds of novels...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up Book 1 of Daffyd Ab Hugh's Rebels trilogy. I just feel that his characterizations and dialogue are always over the top to the point of being cartoonish. I will attempt to solider throught the last two books. I was hoping the story of Kira working for Kai Winn on DS9 would be the main story but that wasn't the case. I'm also not understanding the cover of the book as it seems to have absolutely nothing to do with the story I just read.

Moving on to Voyager #5 Incident at Arbuk which I have really enjoyed so far. I am also working in a few episode novelizations from Star Trek 6 by James Blish.

Just finished 'The Conquering Sword of Conan', which was fantastic. Actually, all the Conan books are amazing. "Beyond the Black River" was a great story. I'm really looking forward to another movie now.

Now reading 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Terok Nor: Day of the Vipers'.

I assume it's a representation of the young Winn and her resistance colleagues during the Occupation.

Well that is what I expected when I started the book and they did have a brief narrative about Kai Winn and her relationship with an up and coming Gul. I'm hoping that story will be fleshed out more in the next two books.

I guess I didn't expect the bulk of the book to center around the Starfleet crew on some planet in the Gamma Quadrant.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Unity by S.D. Perry - so good! I was very pleased with how the storylines of the DS9 novels came together. I'm happily zipping through the "World of Ds9" books. They're easy reads. My plan is to read Warpath and then decide if I want to read the others. I've never been crazy about the Kira/Iliana Ghemor thing.

While I assumed I'd hop over and begin reading the Titan series, I may read the Terok Nor trilogy first. It sounds good and I can't get enough of those Cardassians!

Finished Serpents Among the Ruins by David R. George. Thank God somebody finally salvaged John Harriman's character. Great book.

Actually it was Peter David who did that in The Captain's Daughter (1995) and Enterprise Logs: "Shakedown" (2000). Serpents (2003) just took PAD's version of Harriman and expanded on it.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've read PAD's The Captain's Daughter but all I remember was Chekov punching him. It has been awhile since I've read it. Never read "Shakedown" but I do like Harriman so I'll give it a try.

I liked the older version of Harriman in this book. He seemed like an intelligent and thoughtful officer and he also showed some serious "cojones" with that plan that resulted in the Tomed incident.

Like Christopher said, it's a good saving point for the character that really works with what happened on screen.
