    I’ve read all the Voyager novels, and the pre-Endgame ones are good. The only major issue is #11, “The Garden”, which has like 5 chapters and each chapter is about 60 pages in length.

    I like "The Garden". A slowly built-up exciting story and a twist in the tale at the end.
    4 points out of 5.

    True story: THE BLACK SHORE was originally (and unimaginatively) titled PARADISE, but my editor thought that was a little too close to THE GARDEN for comfort. A good call.

    Speaking of chapters, I recently reread a couple of old horror novels (by the late Leslie Whitten) that had no chapter breaks at all; it was just one long continuous narrative that went on for hundreds of pages.. It worked surprisingly well when it came to keeping me turning the pages. It also kept me up too late a few nights.

    "I'll just read until the end of the chapter . . . .oh wait."

    Yep, although Indistinguishable From Magic establishes that the Voyager fleet are still doing their thing in 2384ish.

    Meaning the full circle thing lasts at least five years.

    I can't get into the relaunch books that well. I prefer the Voyager novels set during the seven years in the DQ.

    My favorite Star Trek book! :techman:

    I read "The Black Shore" from beginning to end one Saturday afternoon the first time I read it. It was so exciting, I could only put down the book for some minutes to make coffee!
