1.0 out of 5 stars
Not her best, 3 Feb. 2013
Ok I admit I read this book out of sequence having first bought Unworthy and continuing up to Eternal Tide, so perhaps my expectations were somewhat high. Having said that this reads like a failed attempt at a television script, the time jumps are somewhat slapdash and actually dont contribute to the narrative and I actually reached the point of not caring what Chakotay or any other character actually said, (again I admit this is because I knew what the futute held for these characters), and this is my problem. I have read books out of sequence before and whenever I have gone back to a novel I missed have enjoyed it as it fills in all those niggardly gaps and scenes which may not have made one hundred percent sense, this book does not do this! It simply bores the reader with over emotional exposition and pretty simplistic motives.
Thankfully Ms Beyer ups her game considerably as the books progress and therefore just clings to the top spot in Trek literature. Just.
