Prior to some thorough research alright, maybe minutes worth , I sought the reviews for the original Imzadi book which were mostly positive and thought, "Well, how bad could Imzadi II be? Imzadi, was indeed a good read. I found that the back-cover of the book wou Prior to some thorough research alright, maybe minutes worth , I sought the reviews for the original Imzadi book which were mostly positive and thought, "Well, how bad could Imzadi II be?
Having possessed the research knowledge, I dove into the book immediately after receiving it in the mail and within the first 50 pages, I was hooked with Imzadi.
My mouth was agape sporadically as things got heavy. Imzadi is indeed a wonderful story, however I found myself kind of annoyed whenever Deanna's breasts were mentioned so I admit, I'm not one for love stories or overtly obvious sexual oogling, but the depth of the story lies within the irony of Riker and Deanna's "immature" behavior.
It all seemed to work in the end. It featured a multitude of appearances from Star Trek characters, and being versed enough in the ST universe, it was easy to read the characters as portrayed on the shows, as they seemed very true to character. Conceptually speaking, it seemed like a bit of a reach, but again the story worked itself out. Throughout both stories, I found myself "sensing" the bigger plot and character developments.
I struggled with preventing myself to over-analyze and predict the plots because I am a Star Trek fan "Stop asking why this is wrong and just dive in it," I says. I found that this method of prevention made things flow easier, especially for the both of the climaxes. Overall for both stories, the settings, character developments, and various tones throughout made both books very acceptable, and quite addicting. The interview at the end of the book explained enough to expand the understanding of Imzadi II.
I'm very happy with it! View 1 comment. Jul 22, Angela rated it it was ok. Oh my goodness, shame on Peter David. What's most annoying is how stupidly regressive this is: capable Troi suddenly becomes a helpless damsel in distress; Riker's not much better than some beefy ape using his physical brawn to save her.
And the entire Betazoid culture becomes a la Oh my goodness, shame on Peter David. And the entire Betazoid culture becomes a land of touchy-feely, wimpy art lovers. Spare me! Two stars only because the IDEA of the book - Data chasing a bitter, old Riker through parallel universes - could have been so good. For our first anniversary she gave me a framed copy of the front paper cover. True to Star Trek I enjoyed re-reading Imzadi, and then the continuance was better.
I really liked seeing Worf in that interesting light and growth of character. But is that me putting human mores on a Klingon, yes it is. Feb 22, Monica rated it really liked it. A very sweet love story. Feb 16, Lucy Lucy added it. It reads like bad fanfiction. Apr 15, L. Goodman rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

And after recommending it to a friend who is just getting into the TNG series and had commented on how much they liked the Riker and Troi relationship, I decided to read it again.
And I still loved this book. I loved how well it fit in with the television series. Ev I read this book when I was much, much younger. Everything else just slid right into what we know of Riker and Troi from the series. Such a good read. Sep 02, Nicole rated it it was amazing Shelves: bookcrossed. This contains Imzadi and Imzadi 2, and the only reason I rated it 5 stars is because it's got both books together.
The second book wasn't as good, but I liked the idea of both together. It's bookcrossed, I think Bluesman is borrowing it. I have a few books to read for him, too. Great book and I like that it's a trade because it's a lot easier to find off the shelf, LOL Oct 11, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: sci-fi. I was impressed how well Peter David was able to weave so many timelines together in Imzadi I. Like everyone else I felt Imzadi I was better than Imzadi II, but they were very different stories and both well written in their own right and I appreciated that in the end it was a story about survival and disappointment, but also about growing and overcoming and becoming someone better.
It seemed interesting that in the end it was more of a story about Worf than anyone. I truly enjoyed it. View all 5 comments.

The first Imzadi novel was wonderful. I love the relationship built between Riker and Troi, the lengths he went to because of his love for her as her Imzadi.
The story wasn't anywhere as good as the original. The only thing I liked about it was how he explained how Worf and Troi's relationship ended, for those of us who cared.
Get Imzadi, don't bother with II. Jan 28, Linda rated it liked it Shelves: , ebooks , sci-fi. This is basically a story of Troi and her two main relationships. Imzadi is between her and Will.
Imzadi Forever (Star Trek)
Imzadi has a complex structure, involving time travel through the Guardian of Forever , but a straightforward plot of love and rescue. Troi's history with Riker had been introduced in the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation , " Encounter at Farpoint "; this also included the word imzadi , a Betazoid term of endearment usually translated as "beloved". The novel expands on the meaning of imzadi when Troi explains that its literal meaning is "the first," not necessarily referring to the first sexual partner but, as Troi puts it to Riker, "the first to ever touch your soul. Seventy-three-year-old Admiral William Riker is a bitter, lonely man in a slow downward spiral following the death forty years earlier of Deanna Troi, who died of undetermined causes during a peacekeeping conference with an enemy race, the Sindareen. Riker, now the commander of an unimportant starbase, is summoned to Betazed as Deanna's mother, Lwaxana Troi , lies dying. While going through Lwaxana's possessions after her death, Riker is reminded of how he and Deanna originally met and began their relationship on Betazed. In a lengthy flashback, it is revealed that Will and Deanna met when Will was stationed on Betazed between assignments, and while there attended a wedding at which Deanna was maid of honor.
