I guess I'll just have to agree to disagree. There's a directory in the back of the book that tells who everyone is, which is more than a lot of book series do. Of all the book series I've read over the years, the vast majority don't go to the extremes the Titan series has gone to to reintroduce every character and then reinforce basic physical traits nearly every time they appear. I finished Fallen Gods this morning. I liked the Andorian story line, but that was about it. Next up, I'm picking up Forgotten History again. I started it a few months ago but got distracted from it. I really enjoyed the first DTI book, so I'm looking forward to this one.
