Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
On his first Starfleet mission as a Captain, Chakotay is ferrying some colonists back to their home planet, evacuated during the Cardassian War. His sister, Sekaya, is along as a spiritual advisor to the colonists, helping to make their reintegration into the world easier. Back on earth, Harry Kim's beloved Libby is combining her career as a musician with her other calling as a spy for the Federation, rooting out moles. And several new characters are included, most notably Dr. Jarem Kaz, a joined Trill whose last host was active in the Maquis, the ship's physician, and Astall, the counselor from a race called the Huanni, who are even more empathetic than Betazoids. Commander Andrew "Priggy" Ellis, a by the book officer, is his second in command.
The trip is uneventful until they near the planet, when things go horribly wrong. . .
It's good to see most of the old faces in a new Voyager adventure. I enjoyed this and am looking forward to the sequel.
One criticism: the book cover read Spirit Walk Book One. It didn't specify one of two, one of three, one of six thousand. It would have been helpful to know how many were in this series.
I look forward to hearing about when the next Golden Voyager books are going to come out!!!!
Pick these books up folks, ANY fan of Voyager or Star Trek is SURE to love em!!!
The first half- to three-quarters of the book is revisiting old characters and introducing new ones. Thats fine by me, as Christie Golden has a much more confident grasp of the characters by now. The result is a much better written book with more believable character motivations than what transpired in Homecoming. I still didn't enjoy these as much as the Star Trek Titan novels, but its still worth a read to revisit old friends. And I hope to see more adventures of the new Voyager in the future.
I cannot recommend this book in any way. This will almost certainly not help decide whether the second book is worth getting. It is not remotely worth it as a stand-alone book, because it isn't even half of one. Finally, I have not gotten or read the second book yet, but I strongly suspect you could read that book without any need to read this.
