Didn't realize they were publishing Grimm novels. I'll be picking it up. And I see a second one is coming out in February. Thanks for the tip.

I seem to have missed most of the Trek "A time to" series so I'm currently catching up with those.

Finished Vanguard: Open Secrets, but I've decided to put that series aside for now so that I can catch up on The Fall. Just started The Crimson Shadow earlier tonight.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started reading From History's Shadow so can't really judge it, except to say it seems as good as a typical Dayton Ward book but I've decided the cover is my favorite Star Trek book cover for this year.

MWB's Burning Dreams. Good book that depicts Pike's life on Talos IV with Vina. A lot of flashback stuff too capturing their early lives. Can be slow at parts but is a nice read overall.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

A few days ago I finished Royal Pains: Sick Rich by D.P. Lyle. The author pretty much nailed the characterizations in this and the previous book. The author is also a doctor, so I assume that the medical jargon makes sense, but since I'm not a doctor I can't be sure. Unlike the previous novel, this one doesn't seem to have much of a plot. It's mostly just Hank treating a variety of patients, with a few things vaguely resembling an A story and a B story, but they don't really play a large part until the last half. That said, I did kind of enjoy it if only because I got to spend a little time with the characters, but I think the first novel is better.

I then read "The White Ship" by H.P. Lovecraft.

I followed that up with the Star Trek: New Frontier comic, Turnaround.

I'm now reading Star Trek: New Frontier: Treason by Peter David.

"Mudd In Your Eye" - it's been a while and watching some TOS blu has put me in the mood.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished the third book in Kim Harrison's The Hollows series, Dead Witch Walking, last night.
My Shelfari review wrote:
his is another great entry in Kim Harrison's The Hollows series, featuring witch Rachel Morgan. This one does start a little slower than the earlier entries in the series. The first couple hundred pages or so focus a lot of their energy on character development, and the relationships between Rachel and the other characters. This really didn't bother me since I love these characters. The pace does pick up big time as we close in on the end, and ends with a pretty exciting finale. This one also does answer a few of the questions that have been building up since the first book.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Foundation by Issac Asimov. It was ok. It had some interesting ideas and a few interesting ideas, and it kept my attention. I wasn't a huge fan of the fact that it couldn't find one character to stick with through the whole book, and the psycho history is pretty stupid, but i9t was a decent book. I'm not quite sure what to read next. I have more Sci Fi and fantasy books that I bought last month, and I'm also waiting for the next book in Star Trek: The Fall series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I listened to the abridged audio reading of Star Trek The Lost Years (there is no unabridged reading at this time). It had enough high points to make me curious to read the book for the whole story at some point. Interesting issues touching on the ancient past of Vulcan and Surak. There's an odd plot point about Spock being pissy because Kirk told him he was going to resign from Starfleet, so Spock resigned and started his Kohlinar (sp?) training, only to find out Kirk took the promotion to Admiral after all. Spock in general seems hurt over Kirk suggesting him for a promotion to Captain and generally moving on to life without Spock and the Enterprise. It has really slashy subtext.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished From History's Shadow this morning. Slow starter but reached a point where I couldn't put it down. I liked this a lot.

I just started The Poisoned Chalice and I'm already 100 pages into it. Even though I had some issues with the first book in the series, I'm really digging The Fall.
