Re: VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)

And finally...to whoever noted above that the book felt "thin"...I had the exact same feeling when I got it. I never have input into any of that, but I too, was suprised. For those keeping track, Eternal Tide is the second longest relaunch book I've done so far. Full Circle clocked it at around 134,000 words. This was 120,000 ish. Both Unworthy and Children of the Storm were closer to 100,000. And all three of the previous novels "felt" more solid in my hands than this one did. Perhaps this is one of many ways the shift to ebooks for a great many of my readers is now to be felt.
This was the initial reaction by a lot of fans until we all realized the type is smaller and I think the pages just a bit thinner. That might have more to do with the price of paper than anything. What has happened is that people bought the book like I did a little early at Barnes and Noble, then because they loved what you wrote so much they purchased the Kindle version so they could change the fount.
