Gosh, I am so far behind in my Trek reading -- but I just finished this novel. I will keep this short but put simply WOW.
I will admit that VOY is not my favorite series by any means despite its merits. Kirsten, you have made it my favorite series currently in Treklit. It is by far the most fully realized and heartfelt series of books going right now.
I love the fleet and all its many captains and personalities. There is so much fertile ground to explore here! I can't wait to see where it goes and I'm rushing out to get The Eternal Tide as soon as I can make the time for it.
Thank you, Kirsten. Please continue your wonderful work.
