Typhon Pact/TNG Novels

I'm trying to get back into reading these, and I've noticed a few TNG novels and Typhon Pact novels out.

My question, is how do they fit in with the timeline with each other? Should I read one before the other?

I'm on Indistinguishable From Magic on the TNG side, and Plagues of Night on the Typhon Pact side.

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG Novels

The TP novels can be read on their own - they will still make sense, but its worth reading them all. There are only a couple of sub-par titles (I didn't like Seize The Fire or Zero Sum Game - others do) but I would suggest reading them in publication order as there is some measure of continuity.

The flowchart in my signature should answer your question. Don't be intimidated if it looks like a lot though - you can jump on anywhere. It should help you figure out the order though.

I love your flowchart Thrawn but my head still spins every time I look at it!

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG Novels

What I REALLY need is an itemized list of what to read in what order. I don't like to make my own decisions.

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG Novels

I'm working on a site that will do just that. I'll post something for you in a bit when I have more time to write.

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG Novels

Here's a partial screenshot from the TNG page of my work in progress website. Add in the Titan and Aventine Typhon Pact novels and you'll have a complete recent Typhon Pact/TNG novel reading order. Hope this helps Silver47.

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG Novels

And I have also found that each books explains events from others so it doesn't matter. I couldn't finish Paths of Disharmony as I found it boring and tedious and yet I know everything that happened in it by reading TP books that came after it.
