Product Description

Product Description

“YOU WERE TOLD NOT TO RETURN TO OUR SPACE.”

Little is known about the Children of the Storm—one of the most unique and potentially dangerous species the Federation has ever encountered. Non-corporeal and traveling through space in vessels apparently propelled by thought alone, the Children of the Storm at one time managed to destroy thousands of Borg ships without firing a single conventional weapon.

Now in its current mission to the Delta Quadrant, Captain Chakotay and Fleet Commander Afsarah Eden must unravel whythree Federation starships—the U.S.S. Quirinal, Planck, and Demeter—have suddenly been targeted without provocation and with extreme prejudice by the powerful Children of the Storm . . . with thousands of Starfleet lives at stake from an enemy that the Federation can only begin to comprehend. . . .

I really enjoyed the last two Voyager novels - both also by Kirsten Beyer - and have been looking forward to this one for a while. I was a tad disappointed though. Voyager is now part of a small fleet which has returned to the Delta Quadrant on a mission of exploration and diplomacy. Three starships have gone missing while attempting to make contact with a hostile alien species - the Children of the Storm - and Chakotay and his crew must try to find them.

The first thing to note is that the previous two books are prerequisite. You'll need them to know a lot of the characters and to understand the situation. I read the last one when it was released and had trouble remembering where things were, so I'd recommend refreshing your memory if you read it a while ago too.

I found the beginning of this book to be quite weak - possibly because of my poor memory of where things stood - and quite a lot of the book focusses on inter-personal relationships among the crew. There are a number of new relationships, and quite a lot of focus on Miral, the toddler of the Paris family. It seems this has been inspired by the author's own recent parenthood, and in some places it's really cute, but occasionally goes a little over the top. One particular sentence had to be the soppiest and corniest thing I've read for a long time.

Once the plot got going though it switched back to the brilliance I've come to expect from this author, and I was very pleased with her descriptions of the aliens and the crews' interactions with them. Overall the range of new characters work really well and it's a good extension to the Voyager series without feeling forced. Once again I find myself looking forward to more.

Quite a slow start then seems to rush to a conclusion right at the end, but overall still a good read.

This series is so captivating. Kirsten Beyer brings brings the voyager characters to life.
The extra ships and new characters add to the richness . Those readers who don't like it are very narrow minded .can't wait to download the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stormy children 9 Sep 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed starting to read this but as time got on I thought there was too many characters. I know they like switching from one area to another but sometimes I just wish that they stayed with one ship at a time. It finished off with the predictable result but there was an 'ahh' moment in the book, which people might enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Challenging Read 20 Feb 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kirsten Beyer is one of my favourite Star Trek authors, she knows and understands the characters well and storylines are well thought-out and believable within the Star Trek universe.

However, this particular book is rather challenging to read. Voyager is accompanied back to the Delta quadrant by 8 Starfleet vessels. Aboard these 8 ships are all new characters, with roles and backgrounds to discover.

The appendix of ships and crew members at the back of the book, detailing names, species and ranks, unfortunately does little to help the reader work through this confusing and complex book. Chapters flick between the ships and crews, with various storylines running simultaneously.

Sadly I am making slow progress, as I attempt to get to grips with who or what I am reading about every time we change location.

A very clever book I am sure, but one that I am not enjoying as much as the author's previous works.
