Question What book should I read next?

I just finished reading Unspoken Truth and to be honest...it wasn't really that good. Anyone have any suggestions with what book I should read next?

I just read about it on Memory Alpha and it looks good! I hope they still have in my local Barnes and Noble.

I'm sure you can order online if they don't have it physically in stock!

I've got so many books in my "queue." It will take quite a while to get through them all.

The first ST novel I read was "Strangers From the Sky". I thought it was a credible adaptation of TOS with some good back story to Spock and Kirk. It also gave some better depth to the characters from "WNMHGB" that were only seen or died in that episode.

I wish that a ST movie had been made based on that book. "First Contact" changed/established the canon though, I suppose.
