Long before Captain Jean-Luc Picard took command of the Starship Enterprise,™ he fell deeply and hopelessly in love with Doctor Beverly Crusher. Picard never acted on his feelings, yet he found a measure of contentment as Beverly's close friend, colleague, and daily breakfast partner. When Doctor Crusher leaves to become the chief medical officer of Starfleet, the brightest light in Picard's life is taken from him. He has barely resigned himself to his loss when he learns that Beverly has been declared missing in action -- and presumed dead. Kevratas is a bleak, frozen world on the far side of the Romulan Neutral Zone where the Federation has become the plague-ravaged natives' only real hope. Starfleet has no recourse but to send in another team -- and Picard is the natural choice. Critical to the mission are two colleagues from his former command, the Starship Stargazer: Pug Joseph and Doctor Carter Greyhorse. Joseph is a man with a past to live down, and Greyhorse has served time for attempted murder. They are determined to succeed where the doctor failed. On the Romulan homeworld, meanwhile, the political vacuum created by the demise of Praetor Shinzon has been filled by Senator Tal'aura. But there are those who oppose her, including Commander Donatra and the warbirds under her command. So begins a desperate struggle -- not only for the freedom of the long-oppressed Kevrata but also for the soul of the Romulan Star Empire. Before it's over, destinies will be forged and shattered, the Empire will be shaken to its ancient foundations, and Jean-Luc Picard's life will be changed...forever.
Reviews about Death in Winter (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (7):
SiIеnt
Despite being a fan of the original "Star Trek" show and having grown up watching "Star Trek: the Next Generation," I have read only a handful of the myriad of books covering either series. Reading "Death in Winter" by Michael Jan Friedman only confirms that I have been missing little. Set after the "Nemesis" film that served as a disappointing close to the movies looking at the "Next Generation" crew, "Death in Winter" focuses on the relationship between Cpt. Picard and Dr. Crusher. While there are some interesting and exciting battle scenes, Friedman goes overboard in providing too many cameos and bogging down the book in too many subplots. The narrative bounces around between too many scenes--and those that focus on the villains drag considerably--and too many minor characters who do next to nothing for the book. Trek fans--especially those who always wanted to see more develop between Picard and Crusher--might enjoy it but the book is pretty forgettable and simply fails to rise above being a mediocre addition to the Trek saga.

I had the opportunity to read this book while I was very sick with the flu. References to the Kevratan Plague aside, it really kept my mind off my symptoms. MJ Friedman is a masterful writer. I admired the skill and craftsmanship that were evident throughout the book. I was also very impressed with his ability to write some exquisite combat scenes.

I admit, I was a bit in the dark about the Stargazer characters, having not read the Stargazer series. Friedman did his best to recap some of the plot-lines and character arcs from those books, but I was still left scratching my head. Presumably he wanted to fill in some of the blanks without ruining the read should one go back and pick up the other books. But it was too much of a strain and a compromise, and wound up distracting from the main plot without really revealing much about the characters. I still enjoyed the book, however. The ending was a little shaky, it did seem rushed. But in the weeks that followed, when the book was finished, I kept instinctively wanting to jump back into it. I picked up a few other STNG books by other authors, but they didn't hold my interest the way Death In Winter had. I would put down my current read and look longingly at it on my bookshelf, as if hoping it would grow a few more chapters if I left it alone long enough. That's saying something! I'm in the middle of 2 other STNG books right now, and this book puts them to shame. If you like Star Trek, and you like a fun, well-written, engrossing story, this is the right book. Friedman delivers a quality novel.

I am a big Star Trek fan but I have never gotten into the books. I decided to give 'em a try and this was a suggested starting point. In many ways, this felt like Star Trek - the pacing, the long build up to a quick resolution - so I wasn't disappointed. I was, however, expecting more details and back story. But, I won't give a bad review based on my expectations.

There were three stories happening concurrently; Picard, Crusher and company on a Romulan planet, Political intrigue on Romulus and Worf and Laforge hunt for Picard. With main story was well executed with lots of action and movement. There were, however, sub-plots that were started then abandoned - such as the Dr. Greyhorse story. This was a distraction. The stories should have been developed further or dropped. The Romulan political story felt like enough to flesh out into a separate novel but instead was addressed sparingly. The Worf/Laforge storyline was dropped halfway through.

All in all, it was not a bad read - I enjoyed it. And, I wanted it fleshed out into a more detailed novel. I will, however, probably read more ST books in the future.

Star trek at its best is emotionally binding in its humanity across space and time. I really enjoyed death in winter for the love, intrigue, hope and political battling it delivered. The Romulus are an excellent game of thrones candidate and this book felt like Star Trek the Romulan Throne edition. . It was a book I could not stop reading and I finished it easily as compared to tiring every 30 pages with Michael A Martin's writing on the Enterprise series continuation. DEATH IN WINTER simply is not burdened by techno babble like other writers. Good Book!

Good book, but there were some mistakes made:

01. Marie Picard did NOT die along with Robert and Renee Picard as it says in the book.

02. Ben Prieto did NOT 'ferry' Tasha Yar down to Vagra II as it says in the book - Prieto was piloting the shuttle with Troi aboard when it crashed on the planet.

03. The Tasha that is Sela's mother is NOT the same Tasha that was featured in most of TNG's Seaon 01. This book makes it sound like she was - but the Tasha that is Sela's mother is a totally different person that the 'regular' Tasha Yar (Picard and Beverly seem not to realize this or at the very least forget it).

That being said, the book was fair. A lot more could have been done with Sela though. There has not yet been a book written that depicts the alternate Tasha's life with Sela before Tasha was executed. None. Sela could have had flashbacks in the book.

Just my opinion though....

I've had this on my list to read for years, but only recently bought it. Its a good self contained Next Gen story with familiar characters and situations from both the TV series and prior novels. Good and accurate use of characters and a plot that moved at a good clip. Very enjoyable.

I enjoyed this book. It's got a lot in it. It almost feels like the plot to the next TNG movie after Nemesis. I enjoyed this book and it was fun to read. If you ship Picard & Crusher, this one is for you.
