Product Description

Product Description

As the Voyager fleet continues its exploration of the Delta Quadrant, investigating the current status of sectors formerly controlled by the Borg becomes a key priority. Two of the fleet’s special mission vessels, the U.S.S. Galen and U.S.S. Demeter, are left at New Talax to aid Neelix’s people, while the Voyager, Quirinal, Esquiline, Hawking, and Curie do a systematic search for any remnants of the Borg or Caeliar, even as the Achilles moves to a location central enough to offer aid to the exploring vessels as needed. As this critical mission begins, Fleet Commander Afsarah Eden, who has shared what little she knows of her mysterious past with Captain Chakotay, begins to experience several more “awakenings” as she encounters artifacts and places that make her feel connected to her long-lost home. She is reluctant to allow these visions to overshadow the mission, and this becomes increasingly difficult as time passes. But in the midst of this growing crisis, no one in the fleet could anticipate the unexpected return of one of Starfleet’s most revered leaders—a return that could hold the very fate of the galaxy in the balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, totally gripping read 3 Sep 2012
By WOLF359
Format:Kindle Edition
I agree with the other reviews here. This is an excellent book, and in my opinion the best one of the Voyager relaunch so far. Be warned, once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down!
Credit to Kirsten Beyer for being so spot on with her characterisations, you can 'hear' Q, Janeway and the rest and really feel its those characters we've come to know and love.
SPOILERS
The return of Janeway would seem an impossible task without seeming like a gimick, but here its made epic and wondrous, touching and with the huge stakes at players involved, utterly plausible..
The last few years have been hard on the Voyager family, and at the end of this novel, you really feel the family is together again, ready to face all sorts of new adventures.
Throw in the new characters (Cambridge is a particular favourite)and a whole quadrant that may or may not be finally rid of the Borg and it looks like an exciting time ahead in the Delta Quadrant!

5.0 out of 5 stars The eternal tide 29 Sep 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is about time. They should never have 'killed off' Janeways character in the first place. It was a poor judgement decision by the publishers.

By Jim J-R
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kirsten Beyer's fourth post-Destiny Voyager novel picks up on a number of threads that have been hanging over the series for some time, most specifically the mystery surrounding fleet commander Afsarah Eden's past.

It's another great novel and one that's very tightly focussed on the characters. I wasn't too impressed by aspects of the previous novel, but the 'mumsyness' has been toned down with this one and although it is heavily emotion-fuelled there is a much better balance with the narrative.

Some readers may find aspects of the plot disappointing, however I thought they were well executed and delivered the intended results without feeling like a deus ex machina. Beyer explores a number of concepts from the TV series in a new light and in places this makes the story feel a little like those in the Typhon Pact arc.

Overall, another excellent novel in this series that Beyer certainly excels at writing. It does feel like a turning point in the ongoing narrative but I hope the publishers keep the author for a few more episodes.

By LM1963
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read the three novels set just prior to this one ("Full Circle", "Unworthy" and "Children of the storm") I had to read this to see what was going to happen. I must admit I did see one of the big plot points coming. I don't see it as a "cop out" although some might.
I did find the style a little confusing in some of the Q scenes. It was a bit of a job working out which Q was speaking. Maybe that was intentional. I liked the overall arc of this novel and previous three. If you haven't read "Full Circle", "Unworthy" and "Children of the storm" then you must read those first.
The new characters are well written. There are plenty of plot strands left open for a further novel(s) and I hope they will continue the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for all Voyager fans 11 Sep 2012
By Irisis
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beyer took on one heck of a challenge with The Eternal Tide - not only was she tasked with handling the return of a major character, she also had to guide Voyager and the rest of the Delta Quadrant fleet through a seemingly insurmountable, multiverse level catastrophe. With her usual sensitivity and creativity not only did she succeed with flair, she also created one of the best Trek books in recent years.

The Eternal Tide has some problems: the first third of the book drags in places, some of the dialogue seems unnatural and there is some repetition. Despite this I found it a truly compelling and satisfying read, and somewhat surprisingly, genuinely moving.

In many ways, the novel feels like the third part of Voyager's final episode: 'Endgame'. A lot of loose ends are tied up, the price of Admiral Janeway's decision to cheat the timeline is finally paid in full, and the evolution of some characters such as Tom Paris is given more time and energy.

This is a must read for all Voyager fans, even for those not familiar with the earlier books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant couldn,t ask for more spoilers though 18 Nov 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well this book was brilliant and I couldn,t put it down. I was very dismayed at the death of captain Janeway and couldn,t understand how it fitted into the voyager theme. She should never have been killed of in the first place. But in saying that I have enjoyed the trips and stories of voyager specially with them going back into the delta quadrant. This book gave us a good insight into captain eden. It really explained captain Eden past and what she was though it was also sad. And into Q Janeways godson. And it tied up loose ends like tom and B,lanna, Seven and Cambridge. I loved having kes in the story can,t say I was surprised that she helped to save Janeway. It was a exciting and emotional journey for voyager and the reader. I can,t wait to see what will happen next and to see Janeway and chakotay move on to the next chapter of there lives. Highly recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Death is not the end 28 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Star trek has a tendency not to let its hero's rest in peace, be it Kirk, Spock or Janeway. So it's not a surprise that a return would be engineered again. As for the future nature abhors a vacuum so no Borg means everything else must change. I haven't read much star trek I didn't like so I look forward to the continuing voyages of Enterprise, Deep Space 9 and Voyager.

The first Voyager book I've read, but unfortunately not the first in this particular series. It therefore refers to events and characters from previous stories I knew nothing about... Read more

This is a truly wonderful example of Star Trek literature. The links in here between the Q continuum and the rest of the Galaxy are outstanding. We'll worth a read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good -but
A very imaginative book that extends the voyager universe. Using storylines from voyager tv episodes. My problem is how easily so many are allowed to die in this new universe. Read more
