Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Yah, dude, the Hegemony is definitely built on the foundation of a caste system, and the dominant, 'warrior' caste feels seriously threatened by the events in the novel. I think that answers your question without spoilers.

I never considered any correlation with the MU Gorn, I thought the representation in 'Seize the Fire' was so cut-and-dry that it was almost painful. When I re-read, I'll keep that in mind.

Well I'm a bit of the way into Seize the Fire and I have a quick question. Is the idea of the Gorn that some of the castes are "Arena" Gorn and some of the castes are Mirror Universe "In a Mirror Darkly" Gorn? I'm not quite clear about that aspect of the story, but I like the book so far. (50 pages in)

Finished The Fall: The Crimson Shadow by Una McCormack today. I'm now back-tracking to Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony in preparation for The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses.

I'm on a catching-up phase, so I just started "Indistinguishable from Magic". 90 pages in and already enjoying it

Vanguard: Reap the Whirlwind

Really enjoying this series - it's absurdly ambitious but so much fun.

I hope you enjoy it! That's probably my favorite novel series going right now. Can't wait for the next book to come out in May.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Almost by accident, I started reading the "Age of" trilogy by James Lovegrove. Read Age of Zeus and halfway through Age of Odin. I would like to read all three books but I'm going to have a tough time not setting these aside to start Star Trek: Voyager: Protectors!

Nope. The last one, Cold Days, came out in November 2012.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished reading the second "A Time To..." duology, A Time To Sow and A Time To Harvest. I enjoyed this much more than the first pair, though I'm still not convinced it needed to be two books.
I'm watching the remastered TNG blu-rays, and coincidentally watched Conundrum between reading the two books.
