After reading Vornolt's first three Star Trek novels, I skipped everything else he's written because I couldn't stand his awful characterizations and his bad writing style. I picked up "A Time to be Born" from the library hoping that he may have learned something from writing more than ten novels, but unfortunately, he's just as bad as he's always been.
I should say first off that he plots well. I picked up his first three books because the plots sounded interesting. They still do. He's got great ideas.
However, trying to read his writing is quite difficult due to how overly flowery it is. In the first chapter, Wesley's dialogue reads like bad Tolkein fanfic. Also, he hasn't learned how to use the word "said" or how to use only one or two names for a character. For example, in the same chapter, Wesley is referred to as: Wesley, the former Starfleet Officer, the human, the newly born Traveler, and the young man. Usually he won't use the same name twice in a row, which makes for very stilted reading.
If his writing style doesn't put you off, and you want to see what could have happened to the Star Trek TNG crew between Insurrection and Nemesis, then pick it up, you might enjoy it. But I can't get past his bad writing enough to actually be able to like the book much.
