Initially, I had a lot of questions after reading the first few pages of Riker's Calling... Like, who was Jeremy Riker? How did Jeremy Riker get the training he did and who did he work for? I also wanted to know more about the woman he rescued and why was she targeted by thugs? Wanting to know the answers to these questions and more, I read onward and was rewarded with plenty of answers!
I enjoyed the plot, characters, and how the storyline unfolded for Riker's Calling. There were a few minor issues that need to be edited, but nothing major. I liked Riker's Calling overall.
