I'm sure I speak for everyone out there when I say that we need more New Frontier novels.

Peter David's creation only seems to get better with each one and I'm interested in seeing where things are headed after this. Without giving anything away, Blind Man's Bluff seems more focused on character development than anything else, though it does clear the way of one major plot point and set up the next big issue to deal with.

What I enjoyed most was how David's typical, backhanded sarcasm that's normally the bread and butter of his characters wasn't quite as evident in this book (though I did laugh at the nod to CBS' How I Met Your Mother. Peter David's typical wry writing style handled the thoughts and emotions of the characters quite nicely. I'm looking forward to see what happens to Mueller in the future, along with Tonia Tobias (though I'm getting a McHenry vibe there)

I polished Blind Man's Bluff off in one sitting. It would have helped me tremendously if I'd re-read the previous New Frontier tale before launching into this one and that's one reason why I'd like to see these come out more frequently. That being said, I'm willing to wait for a quality read and Peter David certainly delivered that in Blind Man's Bluff.

Don't miss this one. If this latest New Frontier is any indication of what is to come, we have much to look forward too.

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.

This is a good book.

Captain Calhoun has come a long way from the new captain we saw in the first New Frontier book. He's still much the same confident, take-charge man. But circumstances change and force him to change too. The book reminds me of the DS9 series - very dark, but not in a pointless way. Instead, the darkness is riveting, and it provides an interesting lens for us to view favorite characters, warts and all.

No spoilers in this review. Instead, a recommendation: read it.

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.
