Not the Best NF Book But Still A High Quality Peter David Work April 28 2011
By Matthias Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I enjoy all Peter David books, especially within the New Frontier title. It is filled with action and believable character drama throughout. It picks up right where "Treason" lets off, with a story that logically and possibly concludes the D'myuri storyline.

I enjoyed following the original characters who I've come to love and likewise appreciated the development of Seven and the Doctor. However, as much as I enjoyed the book, I don't hold the story in as high esteem as others because Calhoun is separated from his crew for most of the tale so you miss the interaction and creativity that comes from the whole crew working together. Still, the Excalibur dialog is thought-provoking and comical per David's quality story-telling style. One major point of disfavor for me was how poorly this book seemed to fit in with the rest of the 24th century Trek series, whose continuity and editorial controls I've come to enjoy. I don't know exactly where this story falls into the timeline but it does come after the Destiny trilogy when Jellico should no longer be an admiral and Seven is an extremely emotionally distraught state, if not in the Delta Quadrant with the doctor. Though these three characters were well written and contributed much to the story, I kept thinking they didn't belong there and wondered if the author was aware of the background development of Jellico, Seven, and the Doctor to this point in Trek literature.

Peter David has commented that he has no contract in hand for further installations of the New Frontier series. I hope this will change soon as this series always, ALWAYS, is of high quality. I have enjoyed every one of them, and Blind Man's Bluff is no exception. My heart broke with this story's ending and I was left with a lump in my throat needing to know what happens next to my hero. But in the event this turns out to be the final edition of New Frontier, the series would be well concluded with the final 4 words of this book which were a proper summary of both Blind Man's Bluff and the entirety of New Frontier.

New Frontier continues in solid form April 30 2011
By Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Out of all the ST serieses/serii that in novel form, the New Frontier one has been the most consistent in quality and the one I have usually looked forward to reading the most. This book was a good addition and was generally enjoyable to read. The plot should be known to you, if you have read the previous books- there is an alien race which aims to influence races to uplift them to Organian levels, and Morgan Primus is a super intelligent computer entity with the power to destroy the entire Federation, if she wanted to, which is a problem since she is acting crazier and crazier.

This novel deals definitively with both these issues, but the ending is one that is shattering for our hero MacKenzie.

There is a nice inclusion of Seven of Nine and The Doctor here too. The Doctor was quite good, and if this was a tv show, I can imagine the actor would have found this a "meaty role". Seven, however, turned out to be a tad too soft towards the end, and her style of speaking a bit inconsistent. Still, good to see both these characters.

I read from Matthias Russell's review that Peter David's contract has not been renewed. I hope it is renewed, as this series is one of the few which is enjoyable, consistent and good fun to read. I find the TNG novels and it's offshoots- DS9, Voyager, Typhon Pact, are all very hit and miss, (more often miss).

Should you read Blind Man's Bluff? If you have read the other books in this series, definitely yes!

If not- go and read the first book right now! You'll enjoy a quirky version of Star Trek.

Spiderman in Space Aug. 1 2011
By barbre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being a huge New Frontier fan, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. After the previous novel, I was sure this one would be better. It isn't. The characters aren't as good, the plot is more or less rambling and Calhoun...well, more on that in a moment. Be prepared, every character in this book spouts off sarcastic comments to everything. I expected to read about Lt. Bill Engvall at any moment. Additionally, the book is loaded with direct quotes from Trek movies. I suppose at one time a little of this might have been clever, now it is just laziness. I guess that is what I feel I've just read, a lazy book. The plot is predictable and the characters barely distinguishable. A far cry from the extraordinary early novels in this series.

Now, as for Calhoun; he is basically Spiderman in this story. We are told over and over and over how his has sixth senses and how everything that happens to him would have killed an "ordinary" man. This is one of my favorite characters and it saddens me to see him turned into a comic strip. There was depth to the character in early novels but now he is just...a spider man.

Overall, if you like this series as much as I have then you'll want to read it...but don't get your hopes up. If you don't fall into this category, I would look for something a little bit less lazy.

Blind Mans Bluff - Dec 7 2011
By Hal H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book was slow moving until the last 75 pages. Kind of talky where it could have been more suspenseful. Worth reading but just average as far as I can tell.
