I also hope you don't like closure, because the majority of the Enterprise main cast gets very little here once the war ends. We get the scene of Archer signing the Federation Charter that was hinted at during the TV series, then a scene with Trip and T'Pol, and that's it. Nothing at all about the fates of Hoshi, Travis Mayweather, Dr. Phlox, Malcolm Reed, or anyone else on the ship. I guess the author and Trek canon has a whole doesn't care about them because I don't see any of that last group referenced much at all in other Trek fiction.
Overall it's a very disappointing end to the series, which is too bad due to the potential shown with the quality writing in The Good That Men do which began the post-series run up to the Federation founding that the show never got a chance to discuss. I'm pretty confident that this is the end of Enterprise-era fiction for some time, as Pocket Books didn't do anything last year for Enterprise's 10th anniversary other than release this book. I just don't think there's enough demand, which is understandable considering the TV series is pretty weak overall.
The writing between this book and the previous book actually took a step back. Not what I had expected. I will continue to read the book series because I am hungry for anything Enterprise, but I hope the next book is better written though I don't expect it to be.
