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

I've always wanted to pick up the series of books that take place after the show but when I found out they had killed off Janeway in one I was turned off from starting the series. She was my favorite character on the show and it just didn't seem right to read them without her.

So my question is this - since I heard that Janeway comes back in the Eternal Tide (honestly the cover was kind of a giveaway ), would it be absolutely necessary for me to read the previous books or can I just jump right in with Eternal Tide?
Read from Full Circle. Full Circle is one of the best Trek books I've read in the last 30 or so years.

The handling of Janeways death in FC is a big part of how good the novel was. There really was no need to bring her back - Kirstens novels were just excellent without her. However, I'm sure Kirstens books will continue to be excellent with Janeway...
