Re: VOY: Protectors by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)
The book might suffer from starter-itis, it opens more than a few plot threads for future novels but doesn't finish them. The Caeliar, Seven's arc, the Paris family story, unfinished story lines can make a novel look weak and any book that has to carry that load can suffer.
Fate protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise.
But not ships named Columbia.
