Re: VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)
Pairing fan fiction is not regarded as bad because it focuses on romantic relationships, but because it does so in a cheesy, merlose place manner, the intent to advocate one's favorite pairing being obvious.
The description read as exactly that. If this is the endgame of the book - well, it's not encouraging.
The "description" was so vague that it could lend itself to any number of different contexts. I would advise waiting and actually reading the book before jumping to conclusions about its content.
This dream must end, this world must know:
We all depend on the beast below.
