For some reason, the writing occasionally made me think this novel was penned by a teen who played a lot of trek computer games. Some of the English seemed questionable at best, and yet the depth with which the emotions were captured, Riker in particular, speaks a much more adult language and one I found hard to ignore.

A strong introspective story about Riker, marred only by a few questionable language and plot choices by the author. It's nice to get a good Riker-centric story, as they sometimes feel few and far between. A solid three out of five story with some good character moments, but far from the best story of this series. Also, however, very far from being the worst.
