^I think he just said what they did -- spoiled the ending of the book.

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

O.K., Marc has posted a lot of shit on that page, but for once I have to defend him. He actually kept it ambiguous, his post was:

Seems she was just in hiding. Janeway is back. Or is she? Find out by picking up The Eternal Tide now available for your reading pleasure.
That isn't anymore definitive than having her on the cover.

(Disclaimer: Just assuming he hasn't deleted a more spoilerish post. ETA: Although that seems to be a strong possibility looking at the time of KingDaniel's post and the post date of the post I quoted above)

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

I just popped back and checked - that's not the post that was there earlier. The spoiler one, with a bunch of complaints by me and others, is gone.

I'm glad for everyone else's sake it was changed.

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

No, there was a more spoilery version that got deleted when people complained. I think it was an unfortunate lapse in judgement, though running off to another site to use profanity seems a bit childish.

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

It sucks, but really even if the group owner never posted a spoiler the chance of getting spoiled by a random in the group replying was high.

That is true. And although I'll probably enjoy reading about how Janeway returns, I'd have much preferred to have found out if she returned.

I think you would need to quit Trek fandom cold turkey for that.

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

I don't post often. I think the last time was Beyer's last book. I'm seeing that the early numbers in the poll suggest that this is another winner. But I can't really find any comments on the quality of the book. And no online reviews yet.

So I'll just ask, how is it? Is it as good as Children of the Storm? Cause that blew my mind.

It's an amazing, well thought out, enjoyable ride, Manisphere.

Personally I didn't think it was as good but a lot of that is the due to the sheer amount of loose ends it was tying up. As well as the Janeway issue there are massive shifts in the status quo of the series to the point where it could go in many different directions after this. It's still a very good book but it's not as focused as Storm and feels a bit too busy at times.
