Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

I'm "saving" half of TET (read most of the Janeway parts) until I re-read Full Circle, Unworthy, and read the Voyager parts of COTS, but am stuck in FC at the really sad section. But since I kind of skimmed that part last time, want to read it more thoroughly for info. to make sure I understand better what was going on w/ all concerned before.

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

I haven't read this book yet but I actually plan to do that. I'm happy that Janeway is back.

But what about Kes in this book? No "Fury"-crap or killing off the character, I hope.

And why didn't she join the crew again?

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

Kes does something awesome in the book. No Fury crap takes place. Also, she's a tad too evolved to join the crew, but I still think you will like her.

I'm almost done with it.

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

Well, as long as the character is not destroyed, killed off or humiliated in any way and as long as there are no "Fury" crap involved, then I'm quite happy.

But the scenario in my own stories are much better!

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

I have now finished it.

Things I loved..

7 and Cambridge, can't wait to read more. Cambridge is such a familiar creature I'm very happy for 7, he's definitely a good match.

JANEWAY IS ALIVE.

The Q's were well written and interesting though Original Q being massively mad with the cloud of Q retribution hanging over the next book is tedious. I'm bored about that already. But that was just at the end, they were all a fun read being utterly Q and also individual.

JANEWAY IS ALIVE.

Icheb is going to be in the next book, finishing off his academy stuffs on Voyager. I really enjoy Icheb and he's on my list of who I want to see more of.

JANEWAY IS ALIVE.

Book did not contain too much angst. At no point did I want to throw it across the room, well there was this one half sentence but I knew that was inevitable so I sucked it up like a man. Yeah, go me. Oh you want too know what it was?

"She liked the way Chakotay held her as they slept,"

JANEWAY IS ALIVE.

The END of the klingon baby messiah storyline. THANK YOU omg I am so happy that shit is done with. And with no harm to the baby I hasten to add in case anyone is reading this who hasn't read the book. And it happened instantly with zero story about it happening! It was almost as though someone knew it was time to finish it. Though frankly how it happened is just a little creepy, Q just disappears all those cult Klingons?! Disappear as in.. DEAD? But who cares, a small price to pay never to have to read about it again.

JANEWAY IS ALIVE.

Tying it in to Endgame gets my hugs and kisses. Beyer certainly knows her Voyager. You know this makes Endgame Admiral Janeway a confirmed savior rather than possibly a self absorbed lunatic.. BOTH Janeways come out golden in this book. In fact all Janeways come out golden.

JANEWAY IS ALIVE.

I also really really really liked that Janeway is now alive!!!!

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

Janeway alive is the best thing ever (lol) and long may she live! Hopefully the next Voyager book will be a fun adventure story that gives KJ and crews something fascinating and/or meaningful to experience. BTW since the Voy. Books are behind the Alpha Quad. novels year-wise does anyone think it might be time to jump in time a little (maybe a year?). Could include maybe flashbacks if some catch-up is necessary for events etc. Well anyway just a thought.

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

I liked how Q showed a sense of "humanity" by saving the Paris family from having to be on the run for the rest of Miral's life. I also like that in the Trek world, it is completely plausible that someone can come back from death after 14 months. The way that Chakotay found out that Janeway was dead was just tragic, and I'm pretty sure I cried like a baby when I read that part. I hope the next novel comes soon, because I don't want to wait to see how Janeway settles in and is excepted back into Starfleet. I'm going to have to go through the lit again to find out about Kes. I remember reading about her in some book, and how she evolved, her travels, and her settling on Ocampa again, but I don't remember what book it was!

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

Over in the Trek lit forum, Kirsten said she's almost certainly writing the next Voyager novel, but that it won't be out until 2014.

I *think* the Kes stuff was referencing the Cold Equations trilogy, but I haven't gotten around to it yet!

I think you mean the String Theory trilogy.

I've got that but I've never read it. Which I can say about a lot of things.

Yes! My bad. Cold Equations is the TNG trilogy coming out this Christmas.

Re: Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"

I'm so in love with reading on a kindle now I might just get it that way. Going to finish a Stargate Atlantis book first, and JRulez's epic fanfic which I've transferred to the kindle.

:: babbles some more about her kindle ::
