Imzadi: to the people of the planet Betazed, including Counselor Deanna Troi of the Starship Enterprise™, it means "beloved" and denotes a special closeness that can never be truly broken. Or can it?
In his acclaimed earlier novel, Imzadi, bestselling author Peter David explored the special bond between Deanna Troi and Commander William T. Riker. It revealed new facets of their long and intimate relationship and put that bond to its ultimate test in a powerful and unforgettable story that remains one of the most popular Star Trek® adventures ever published. Now David examines the heart of Deanna Troi from an altogether different perspective, as he reveals for the first time the full story of Troi's troubled romance with Lieutenant Commander Worf.
At first glance, they cannot be more different. She is an empath, gentle and acutely sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. He is a fierce Klingon warrior, dedicated to a harsh and warlike code of honor. Brought together, however, by a common need to care for Alexander, Worf's troubled, motherless son, they discover hidden reserves of courage and compassion within each other and embark on an unexpected courtship, much to the surprise and discomfort of William Riker.
But does Worf's future truly lie with Deanna...or on a distant outpost called Deep Space 9™? And whom indeed shall Troi ultimately call "imzadi"? Imzadi II is a compelling story, an untold chapter in the history of the Starship Enterprise™.

Peter David is the bestselling author of several previous Star Trek® novels, including Star Trek: New Frontier, Q-Squared, Q-In-Law, Vendetta, and, of course, Imzadi. He lives on Long Island.From Library Journal:
The 34th Rule offers listeners who prefer the Deep Space Nine universe a tale about Quark, the quintessential Ferengi businessman. When the Grand Nagus of Ferengi refuses to sell a religious relic to Bajor, the Bajoran government retaliates by banning all Ferengi from Bajoran space. Quark and his brother Rom become political prisoners, but as Ferengi and Bajorans prepare for war, Quark may be the only one able to negotiate a peace settlement. Coauthor Shimerman plays Quark on the television series, and it's obvious he's enjoying himself in his performance here. His portrayal of both Quark and his brother are heartfelt and gratifying. Too much of the action depends on barked orders and sizzling weaponry, but explorations of race hatred and individual dignity make this title a good choice for sf collections with extensive Star Trek holdings. Languishing in a Cardassian labor camp, Tom Riker takes advantage of a prison breakout only to find himself at the mercy of a notorious Romulan renegade in Imzadi II: Triangle. Tom, who is the "accidental" twin of Will Riker due to a transporter malfunction, finds himself the focal point of a plot to destroy the Klingon Empire. Meanwhile, Worf and Deanna Troi make marriage plans as a frustrated Will examines his own feelings toward her. For Will and Deanna share a special relationship encompassing physical and spiritual aspects of the Betazoid psycheAthey are Imzadi. Reader Robert O'Reilly does an outstanding job differentiating characters, and sound effects enhance the storyline. Star Trek: Next Generation fans have been waiting seven years for this sequel (Imzadi/Q-In-Law, Audio Reviews, LJ 9/15/92). Highly recommended.ASusan Dunman, Murray State Univ., KY
