T'Aerwynd: Oh hell yeah, Wounded Sky! I'm so glad I wasn't in public while reading the last few chapters; it's seriously a five-alarm tearjerker.

Have you read any of Diane Duane's Rihannsu (Romulan) novels? Or Spock's World? I swear, that woman is physically incapable of writing a bad book.

I also really like Diane Carey's first two novels, Dreadnought and Battlestations, just for their sheer uniqueness. Both are narrated in first person by a rather nervous junior officer posted on Enterprise. I admit, sometimes the main character skirts "Mary Sue" territory (being based pretty much directly on the author), but the story is so gripping, and the... voice, I guess is the right word, of the narration is engageing enough that you don't really mind.

Oh yeah, and you all need to read How Much for Just the Planet. There's a pie fight -- Starfleet vs. Klingons. With banana cream pies. And it's a musical. I am not making this up.
