Sort order. Great addition to the Lost Era series. Just a notch or two below the first couple of books in the series. Great to get some insight into Kyle Riker and a young Will Riker. Aug 01, Craig rated it really liked it. A solid effort, but at times it felt like there were threads that were put out there, but not paid off in the end.
I also felt that the ending was slightly rushed relative to the pace of the other parts of the book. But still a good read nevertheless. Dec 31, Nathan Burgoine rated it it was ok. A decent enough bit of Star Trek 'history,' this is one of the 'Lost Era' books, which take us to periods between the original series and prior to the Next Generation. This book explores Kyle Riker Will Riker's father , and the reasons he took off and left this son, what really happened at Starbase , and other bits of trek detritus, that, while making for a bit of a mind-candy style read, didn't quite have any I closed the book, annoyed at the forced cameos, and A decent enough bit of Star Trek 'history,' this is one of the 'Lost Era' books, which take us to periods between the original series and prior to the Next Generation.
I closed the book, annoyed at the forced cameos, and didn't really find much in it. Now, if you're a Riker fan of either generation , there's some fun to be had in exploring the Riker background s , but other than that, there was nothing new here. Several supporting characters that I found interesting weren't really developed very far, and some of Riker's conflicts were a bit bland.
Still, from a purely mind-candy point of view, I shot through it in a 'don't have to think, enjoying this' way, bought and read nearly the same day. Nov 13, Daniel Kukwa rated it it was ok Shelves: star-trek. I enjoy Jeff Mariotte's writing style very much, and the "William" Riker half of this novel makes for a pleasant, if unexciting story.

However, there are two things impeding my ability to enjoy this novel. The first is that, no matter how smooth the writing, there's nothing interesting or fascinating about the "Kyle" Riker half of the novel. I just can't get worked up about him, no matter how much I might try.
The se I enjoy Jeff Mariotte's writing style very much, and the "William" Riker half of this novel makes for a pleasant, if unexciting story. The second impediment is that I believe this book took the wrong approach. It should have ditched the Kyle Riker story, and taken William Riker's story up to the infamous mutiny on board the Pegasus That is the novel I wish Mr.
Mariotte's writing skill would have been harnassed to write from the outset. Mar 30, Noah rated it it was ok. Yep, so I like Star Trek. For some reason I'm embarrassed of this fact Well, I didn't read anything Star Trek at all in all of , basically just so that I wouldn't have to post it on my xanga site. Anyway, this one is from a fun little series that tells the stories of some of our favorite heroes in between the years of the original season and the next generation.

Deny thy father is a bit weird though, because it tells parallel sto Yep, so I like Star Trek. Deny thy father is a bit weird though, because it tells parallel stories of Will and Kyle Riker in which they never actually encounter one another. Reading it made me request three different seasons so that I could watch episodes with Paul Rice, Kyle Riker, and Erik Pressman just to relive those story lines that introduced these characters who appear in the "prequel" book to fill in the back story.
Fun times. Apr 13, Justin rated it liked it Shelves: scif-fi. The first two thirds of the book were excellent. Young Will Riker grows and learns key lessons during the Academy and on his first assignment. Kyle Riker is on the run and has to figure out who tried to kill him. There is a long interlude where Kyle is on a planet hiding. Then he returns and "magically" figures things out all with a young Ensign Kathryn Janeway. Here's the problem with the last scene; an ensign with minimal security clearance presumably using Admiral Owen Paris' higher security The first two thirds of the book were excellent.
Here's the problem with the last scene; an ensign with minimal security clearance presumably using Admiral Owen Paris' higher security clearance gets classified information and guessed correctly who burned him and why.
That knocked my initial review of 4 stars to 3. Sep 03, Nicolas rated it it was amazing Shelves: star-trek. I appreciate the Lost Era series for the opportunity to explore this under developed times. Extra points for the Janeway cameo. Jun 23, Stephen rated it it was ok. Not a good book. The main characters are Will Riker and his father, Kyle.
Neither of which were very interesting in this book.
