Re: VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)
While I only know a little about Afsarah Eden, I'll say that the character had a sad but poignant send-off. I felt she and Chakotay would have made an interesting set of sparring partners in the Janeway-less universe. Her existence as the "Anti-Q" is very Trekkian even as I got a private little chuckle out of the Garden of Eden-style birth for her.
I also appreciated her "uncles" relationship's depiction.
I wish she could have stayed onto the crew because she was quite well done here and the fact there was no "last minute Janeway rescue" like everyone expected her to pull off made the book a bittersweet but telling return.
The romance between Cambridge and Seven of Nine is also one which felt somewhat true to life as everyone's feelings was considerably more raw than usually get in books. No one is acting like it's true love and things go south very quickly.
Oh wait, maybe that's just my past relationships (before my marriage at least).
Really, what surprised me a lot was the depiction of Lady Q and the fact she had such a unique and vivid personality compared to her husband and son. I never really cared for the character before now, thinking of her as "just like Q only female" but watching her reactions really gave me a sense of a different person.
Anywho, thank you for writing this book.
