Accusations is the second of a series of nine novels. The book is set during the second season, between "The Coming of Shadows," and "All Alone in the Night." Commander Ivanova's former instructor pilot is murdered on Babylon 5 before she has a chance to meet with him and all suspicions fall on her. Could this be what it seems or is there more than meets than eye...
Lois Tilton makes use of existing B5 plots and subplots, i.e. the Mars Troubles, on which she bases this novel.
The book is well written and presented, and the reader feels that they have been transported to another plane of existence and are actually present among the characters, seeing what they see, feeling what they feel, sensing what they sense.
Ivanova's handling of a Narn captain on page 42 is enjoyable to say the least.
On page 123-127, the author provides for an excellent description of a run-in between B 5's Alpha Wing Starfuries and Raiders.
Finally, on pages 274-275, the author foreshadows the erotic relationship between Talia Winters and Susan Ivanova that is to come.
On the downside, the novel focuses too much on Susan Ivanova and Michael Garibaldi. The alien characters are literally nowhere to be seen.
With the series over, thank goodness for the novels. 3.5 Stars
More novels please...
