    Just finished Shadow Ops: Fortress Frontier. A great follow-up to last year's debut, continuing this intriguing urban fantasy/superhero mashup with a great new character and some fantastic new forms of magic.

    I finished DTI: Forgotten History last night ... finally. For some reason it was just a slog for me to get through. I had a hard time engaging with all the, to use the technical term, "timey-wimey stuff." And I missed the characters from the first book. I mean, yes, they made appearances, but I kept wondering as I read thru the history of the DTI and the Enterprise's time travel shenanigans just when we would ever get back to Dulmur and Lucsly. :shrug: Ah well, can't win 'em all. :)

    Now I'm reading The Eternal Tide, and aside from occasionally getting lost in the Q conversations, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. :techman:

    I have a blog where I write reviews of the books that I read. This blog is in french but as I read Star Trek novels in English and I discuss about them on a board in English, I tried to write my first review in English. I hope it's understandable. It's a review of Last Full Measure and here it is. Feel free to write comments in English if you want, even if my blog is in French.

    Just finished TNG: Reunion, working on The Search, a novelization of the DS9 episode. I'm not seeing a lot added to the script on this one.

    I haven't read that one, but I do have and have read the next one, Ask a Policeman. In that one, there's a mystery at the outset, and the writers then swap detectives so Anthony Berkley writers a Lord Peter Wimsey story, Helen Simpson writes a Mrs. Bradley story, etc., that solves the mystery. It's a fun book.

    Interesting. I had the opposite reaction. While I DID enjoy the first DTI book, I thought the second was MUCH better.

    And OT: I'm currently reading the latest (that I know of) Batman book, WAYNE OF GOTHAM.

    I just finished The Eternal Tide, and it was wonderful. I haven't been so drawn to a book in a long time. I hated to put it down at all. I think it's my favorite of Kirsten's Voyager novels so far. :techman:

    Next up, Brinkmanship.

    I finished Star Trek: The Lost Era: The Sundered yesterday. Then I read "Richard Castle's" Deadly Storm comic. Tomorrow, I plan on starting Leverage: The Con Job.

    I returned a Star Trek novel to my library having only got 1/3 of the way through, which is a first. I've struggled with a few, but forced myself through (in the case of somebecause I'd bought them, in the case of one to see if it got any more ridiculous), so this is a first.

    If a novel is going to have long recaps of episodes, it needs to do something pretty damned interesting with them or it may as well be a copy and paste from Memory Alpha. It was done pretty well in Q & A, but this is one of at least two novels where it's just been horribly grating. With utterly uninteresting characters and events around them, I wound up staring at the wall of my train rather than reading it.

    Oh well, I have a Terry Pratchett novel lined up next, so I'm guaranteed a more pleasurable experience. :)

    I finished Sword of Damocles which I really enjoyed reading. It was a little slow at the beginning but after a few chapters it was really a page turner.

    Now I will start Greater than the sum to continue my way to the Destiny trilogy.

    Working my way through Sarek right now as part of my pocket novel re-read. I wish Crispin would have done more in the Star Trek novelverse. I've enjoyed all of her books. The Yesterday series was pretty good.

    I'm just curious, is there a reason that this wasn't capped at 1000 posts like the last few? It doesn't bother me any, I'm just wondering.

    Damn straight! :D

    It's no longer necessary to cap posts at 1000.
