Years before they served together on board the U.S.S. Enterprise, Commander William Riker and ship's counselor Deanna Troi had a tempestuous love affair on her home planet of Betazed. Now, their passions have cooled and they serve together as friends. Yet the memories of that time linger and Riker and Troi remain Imzadi - a powerful Betazoid term that describes the enduring bond they still share.

During delicate negotiations with an aggressive race called the Sindareen Deanna Troi mysteriously falls ill and dies. But her death is only the beginning of the adventure for Commander Riker, an adventure that will take him across time, pit him against one of his closest friends, and force him to choose between Starfleet's strictest rule and the one he calls Imzadi.

    " Like every other Star Trek novel, pretty much--if it's all you have on the Greyhound, go for it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kandice | 2/12/2014

    " This one really gave you a lot of insight into Troi and Ryker's relationship. I love reading about what you didn't see on-screen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 2/8/2014

    " One of my all-time favorite indulgent reads. Emotional, maybe silly, but DELIGHTFUL exploration of Riker & Troi's early relationship. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 2/6/2014

    " Romance book disguised as a Star Trek novel. Good for nerds who've never been with a non-fictional woman. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cat | 1/30/2014

    " I really wanted to enjoy this story, but the writing left a lot to be desired. Parts of 'Imzadi' read more like a first draft. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cerri | 1/23/2014

    " One of those Star Trek novels that I fell absolutely in love with, when I was 13. ahhh. such good memories. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony | 1/20/2014

    " The backstory to Riker and Troi's relationship. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lady Natasha | 1/15/2014

    " Another book I know I've read at some point, but I can't remember whether it was good or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/9/2014

    " I love ST:TNG, so this book was awesome for me. Interesting twist as well. I felt like Peter David stayed true to the characters "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandice | 1/7/2014

    " Peter David is hilarious and this was the last book he wrote that was pitched to Gene Roddenberry and approved by him before he passed away (he never got to read it). It's romantic, comical, and definitely the best Star Trek love story of any Star Trek series, in my opinion. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 12/17/2013

    " FABULOUS writing. Well done. I feel a piece of Star Trek history has been filled in for me. I loved it. Just what I needed this winter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg of A2 | 11/28/2013

    " Very enjoyable stuff. Like a Star Trek romance novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Friend | 11/14/2013

    " One of my all-time fave Trek books; provided great insight into Troi/Riker's relationships, and helped teach me a little about romance as a teen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 11/5/2013

    " I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! i've always loved the Troi and Riker relationship to begin with and to get the story on how they first met was amazing!!! Peter David is an awesome author and make this book epic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 10/31/2013

    " 4.0 stars. Nobody does Star Trek better than Peter David and this is another superb example. It is what you get when you take a richly defined universe (star trek) and pair it with a writer with true chops. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leo | 10/20/2013

    " This is the first ever Star Trek book I've read. I enjoyed seeing the TV characters in my head as I read it. I liked finding how two of my favorite people from Star Trek met and fell in love and their love spanning time and existence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 tree | 10/17/2013

    " my 15 year old self was madly in love with this book. troi/riker was my first media fandom. *feels nostalgic* "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wes | 6/3/2013

    " This is one of the best Star Trek books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 5/30/2013

    " The only ST:TNG novelization I've ever read. As far as I'm concerned, it's a big fat romance novel. Fun, nevertheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 1/18/2013

    " Could easily become one of my favorite books. I laughed and cried. Story had twists and turns. Things that I barely took notice of came back in the end. Finished it in one sitting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harold | 1/13/2013

    " A pretty good story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Valin | 5/28/2012

    " I know most Star Trek novels are considered sub-standard sci-fi fare, but if you're a fan of ST:TNG, this book is as good as it gets. Peter David is one of those writers who can take the source material and move it up a notch. Plus, I'm a sucker for time travel stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Bean | 9/9/2011

    " Good, even though it's the 7000th Star Trek book I've read that features alternate timelines and the Guardian of Forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kori | 7/19/2011

    " The one and ONLY trekkie book that I have ever read. I borrowed it from my aunt (an avid Trekkie) because I had always wondered about that odd sexual tension between Riker and Diana. Now I know why they always seemed seconds away from steamy hot sex in the TV series. lol. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 6/19/2011

    " Such a great book for Star Trek Fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 6/5/2011

    " geek alert "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genevieve | 7/28/2010

    " If you're a fan of the series, in the first episode (the pilot) Troi calls Ryker "Imzadi" when they are formally introduced on board their new ship. This novel is their love story, and it wouldn't be a good story without the requisite time travel in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 5/31/2010

    " My copy of this book is practically falling apart, I've read it so often. If you enjoyed the on-screen relationship of Riker & Troi, wow, does this ever give it new and poignant meaning! I love the aspect of playing with time that Peter David takes on it too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 2/24/2010

    " The Riker and Troi romance, mixed with time travel and classic series themes? What more could you ask for in a Star Trek novel? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/28/2010

    " This is basically a story of Troi and her two main relationships. Imzadi is between her and Will. Imzadi II between her and Worf. Both were good stories. I really enjoyed Imzadi, I like Imzadi II. Something about the way Imzadi II was written was just too much, but the story was good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 5/29/2009

    " Imzadi II: Triangle was not as good as Imzadi but I liked them both. The author is definitely a fan of STAR TREK. This is the first STAR TREK book I've read. I liked it so much I'll now read ENTERPRISE that my brother suggested a while ago. "
