This book was very good and interesting. The Voyager series sucked as a TV show but all the books that take place where the series ended are very good.

Complex and ever-unfolding narrative Aug. 28 2012
By Coleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Read it in 7 hours. Didn't stop. Not only is a great multi-faceted story line, but the open threads at the end leave so much to see.

It's refreshing to see the Q in mixed into such a complex tale that they aren't able to just *snap* and solve. That coupled with the deep-felt emotion seen in everyone's favorite "Q-Family" speaks to Kristen Beyer's ability to build a solid, imaginative plot that really connects with all the preexisting elements of the Star Trek universe... or should I say multiverse? :)

*Spoilers below*

Once you get over Janeway's return - which is pretty heartfelt and cool (J/Cer rejoice!)the immediate juxtaposition between Eden and Janeway is interesting, though predictable. Tall and short, dark and white, short hair and long hair; the side-by-side of these two was all the foreshadow I needed to know what was up. But, it was still nice to read myself right in the end.

All other characters aside, because there's not a lot of character development going on in the middle of a plot that shifts side-ways every chapter (no offense to the author - it's just hard to do in 400 pages), Hugh Cambridge is the best addition to the relaunch cast. Just when I thought he was stepping up to take the Doctor's spot in the sarcasm department, he turned out to creatively ambivalent in all the right ways making him the most dynamic character on the cast.

Well done to Beyer and her support staff. Well worth the wait.

Voyager Excellence Aug. 30 2012
By Chesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A thoroughly enjoyable read from start to finish. Beyer does an excellent job of continuing the Voyager relaunch novels while also giving Janeway fans the event they've been waiting for.

The book is much more than a return of Janeway. Depending on how you count them up, Beyer presents at least 4-5 different story lines with multiple ships and distinctive characters all trying to get through the Delta quadrant as best they can. The adventure never lags as you follow new and familiar faces through personal quests, interstellar phenomena, and unexpected discoveries.

I teared up, I got chills, and from the moment I picked up the book I didn't put it down until I finished reading! Thank you Mrs. Beyer for a great reading experience and giving Voyager fans the ship and crew they've grown to love.

A Must Read for Janeway Aug. 28 2012
By Lev T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Contains spoilers:
Admiral Janeway makes her triumphant return in this book. The publishers of Star Trek made a grievous error in killing off Janeway in the first place. She is a popular character especially among women. The publishers have rectified this act of stupidity. The plot itself is fast paced and the intellectual scope of this book was a pleasant surprise. The book is not solely about Janeway. As a matter of fact it takes quite some time before Janeway makes her reappearance. Other Voyager characters are also there and dealt with in a good way. I liked the interaction between Tom and B'lanna. At the end of the book there is also a pleasant surprise for Janeway fans but I wont tell you what it is.

What I've been waiting for Aug. 29 2012
By SGFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I will start out with this disclaimer - I am a Janeway/Chakotay fan. So with that in mind, you may take my review however you like. Ever since I read Before Dishonor and Full Circle, I've been hoping and waiting for Kirsten Beyer (or some other author) to bring back Janeway. It wasn't just because I liked the J/C potential romantic relationship in the early years of the show. Voyager plots, story lines, books, whatever just were not the same without the driving force of Janeway. Even in her death in past books, the story could not be told without referencing her.

Regarding this book, I was glad that there was a purpose behind her resurrection, albeit one that is hard to grasp (but it's science fiction). Honestly, for the most part, I could have cared less about Eden and the other ships. In some parts, I just had to go with the plot and technical jargon because it got abstract and difficult to imagine. However, I think the relationships between all the characters were paramount to the story. The family dynamics between Q, female Q, and their son were also very interesting - a nice look at the Q Continuum.

For those wanting an intriguing story, The Eternal Tide is thought provoking and engages your mind.
For those wanting the return of Janeway, this book does not disappoint. She is the same strong admiral/captain we knew before.
For those wanting to see the continuation of the J/C relationship, this book is a must. The Eternal Tide is a welcome resolution to the cut short relationship in Full Circle.

Personally, I hope this character is now used in other books and that this Voyager series is continued.

Pretty big adventure - oh and that babe on the cover shows up too. Jan. 4 2013
By Ultraaman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
***MOSTLY SPOILER-FREE REVIEW***

Well gee, if you didn't know that at some point Janeway was going to come back after dying 5 years ago our time - about a year in Star Trek time - in a rather unceremonious shuffling off as a temporary Borg Queen then you really have no business reading a book where her face is right there on the cover [I'm looking at you, reviewer who gave this book 1 star because you demand that "dead is dead"].

Truth be told, I hate 'back from the dead' story lines too but I when I read her not-half-bad-but-nowhere-near-satisfying death 9 books ago, I had no doubt she would return at some point ESPECIALLY given the visit from Q that she got just prior to being assimilated. All I cared about was that her return happened in a way that matched the importance of her death. Janeway is my favorite captain (and probably my favorite Star Trek character, period) and has been since about Season 5 of a show that never lived up to the gravitas that Kate Mulgrew brought to the role. But in the books that Kristen Beyer has written, now her 4th in a row, the voices of the Voyager characters ring as true as they ever have and with the Admiral back it's like an old friend has just walked back into my life.

This adventure takes place a week after the previous book and wastes no time pulling back the curtain on a massive and dangerous menace that threatens more than anyone could imagine. Captain Eden's story takes an unexpected, and gosh I hate saying this but also rather boring, turn even though it is a pivotal plot point. Seven gets a nice chunk of a story that moves her past her doubts and finally after all these years looking like she is coming into her own. We get mercifully very little of Paris, Torres, or Kim, get jipped a little by getting barely any Doctor, but get rewarded with some great moments from the counselor, Hugh Cambridge. Chakotay's immense evolution in the previous books reaches its apex here and - this really shouldn't come as a shock - his reunion with Katherine is very emotional and yet manages to stay true to character. Truth be told there is a lot of crying in this book, a lot of crying in all of Beyer's book actually, but whatev she makes it work and it doesn't come off schmaltzy.

Due to the immensity of the main threat, major story arcs from throughout Voyager's seven seasons play a role here though enough detail is provided I think to put it in context. My one gripe is that in more than one place I couldn't visualize what Beyer was trying to convey. It reminded me of what I experienced when reading science fiction from the late 19th Century when writers had no concept of what science was necessary to make their space exploration tales possible. They just made up a bunch of nebulous hooey that gave the impression that whatever was going on was just too complex and out there for a normal person to comprehend when in reality the author had little to no idea what he was trying to convey.

In the end it works but like other parts of her previous books where I've felt the need to skip a page or two, Beyer does a great job of providing recap in-story in a believable way to keep you from getting lost or being taken out of the book by an info-dump. Oh, and just to sweeten the pot, the big climax of this book (which is done quite well) brings back into the fold one of Star Trek's most dangerous foes who puts Janeway squarely in his/her/its cross hairs.

Yes, the guest-stars hijack the book and the story barely hold true to the 'seeking out new life' mantra of Star Trek at large. If you feel the need to cling to that kind of purity that's your choice (and probably means you don't like DS9, the best Trek series by leaps and bounds). This was a big adventure and I'm glad to have taken the ride.
