    Voyager is picking up speed! Only seven months have passed since Protectors beamed onto bookshelves, vs. 16 months between it and The Eternal Tide. Author Kirsten Beyer clearly has been busy. Sounds like her sixth consecutive Voyager novel will requaint us with some factions previously encountered on the TV show, which has been a regular request by the readership.

    Blurb:

    The Simon & Schuster website also has an excerpt available for this one: http://books.simonandschuster.com/S...Beyer/Star-Trek-Voyager/9781476765518/excerpt

    I'll wait until the first couple of hours at least. Nah, screw it. It'll be awesome from the first moment I'm sucked into the page. :rommie:

    Who else ever thought that a highlight of the year as a Trek fan would be something to do with VOY? Kirsten MF Beyer is a goddess of Trek for such a turn-around of a series!

    Given that this is the sixth one, I've gotten pretty familiar with Voyager being the highlight of the year in Star Trek :lol:

    Hello friends,

    If I might, I would like to make a personal request now that the book is apparently out there in the world.

    I would really appreciate it if those coming in to review and discuss the book, especially in the early days and weeks, would use spoiler codes for all of the story's major revelations. I just want as many readers as possible to go into this one cold and experience it as it unfolds. Personally, I think it will really enhance the reading experience.

    Best,
    KMFB

    You are right, I too should be use to it. Praying that sometime soon I can feel the same way about DS9 books again.

    No way!! You guys in the States are so lucky, here in England we don't have a prayer of getting anything early! I'm eagerly awaiting the 30th but there is a possibility that I'll leave it until the October 20th and I get a week off college.

    My problem with Trek Lit - specifically Ms. Beyer's work - is that I have to go all-in when I read them. It will take me a couple of days to blast through the entire thing and then I'll be zoned out for the rest of the week; and I'll probably re-read it in that time, too.

    Who am I kidding, I'm never going to be able to wait! But it is flu season... there is always a very real accidental possibility that I could well and truly be extremely ill for the week commencing the 29th.

    I'm afraid if that happened I would have a duty to the rest of my flat to lock myself in my room and lie in bed all day.

    Yes, a very real possibility.... :lol:

    ^I'm very much NOT from the States. I'm a proud Canadian through and through.

    AoC is fantastic. I hope you like it, and I hope you start to feel worse on the 29th...and then miraculously better after page 390 ;)
