Book Description

Once she was Annika Hansen, an innocent child assimilated by the fearsome, all-conquering Borg. Now she is Seven of Nine, a unique mixture of human biology and Borg technology. Cut off from the collective that has been her only reality for most of her existence, and forced to join the crew of the Starship Voyager™, she must come to grips with her surprising new environment -- and her own lost individuality.
Seven of Nine has already captured the imagination of fans all over the world. Now the most sensational new character of the twenty-fourth century stars in her first full-length novel. Resistance is futile.

5.0 out of 5 stars A most pleasant surprise. March 11, 2002
Format:Paperback
Unlike most of the Voyager novels, I didn't rush right out and buy this book the day it was released. Contrary to the norm, I am not much of a Seven of Nine fan. I like Jeri Ryan very much, but I just felt the character was drastically over used, and frankly, I was tired of her. But, I am a devoted Christie Golden fan, and am unable to resist anything written by her.
As usual, she did not disappoint. This book is without a doubt about Seven of Nine, but Ms. Golden wrote it in a wonderfully creative manner that included all the characters. She has a knack for capturing the essence of the Voyager characters that makes her writing a sheer delight to read. The same is true of this book.
The story is engaging, the aliens are creepy, and Seven is interesting and very, very likable. Those are words I do not say easily, believe me. This is a terrific book! Even if you aren't part of the masses that think Seven is the best thing since peanut butter, you'll enjoy this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and believable. September 22, 1998
Format:Paperback
Hooray for Christie Golden! As much as Jeri Taylor strayed from canon in "Pathways," Golden sticks like glue to it in this book. Canon references abound throughout, and there's even one delightful reference to Seven's role in the WW II simulation during the Hirogen takeover ("Seven's holodeck stint as a cabaret singer when the ship was under the command of the Hirogen was something of a legend on Voyager. The role had been so out of character for her, it had made more of an impression on the crew than Tuvok's bartender or Chakotay's American soldier.") If you enjoy this sort of thing - which I do - then buy the book!
Canon aside, the story is a completely original Seven tale, with a compelling plot that weaves hatred and a desire for revenge around a twist that includes Seven and *real* memories from her time as a Borg drone. These memories assault her so viciously that she attempts suicide to stop them. Ravens also appear, but to learn whether they are good or evil, you gotta read the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars An extremely well done Voyager book! July 21, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) joined the cast of Voyager I thought she was a great addition to the show. Not unlike other people though, I felt she was way over used to the detriment of the other characters and their development. So it was with this trepidation that I approached this book. However, knowing the quality of Christie Golden's past works I jumped right into the book.
What a wonderful surprise, Seven on Nine is an absolutely brilliant book with a great plot line and really good villains. In my opinion, past trek books with insectoid species were not done very well. In this the author uses an insectoid species and does it very well. Without giving too much away, let's just say that Seven of Nine is an absolutely great story that is hard to put down. If you've not read it yet, you need to. Unfortunately it appears to be out of publication already. It's definitely worth a little extra money to order this one through [other sources]! Thank you to the author for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome February 3, 2000
Format:Paperback
This book is another one of those Star Trek books that keeps you on your toes. It is dramatic, scary, funny, and has just about any other aspect of a good book you can think of. Next to Pathways, it is probably the best book I've ever read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Seven of Nine and Voyager fans September 3, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wow. This is a must read for Voyager fans and fans of Seven of Nine. Although it's not a life story of Seven, it is partly biogrpahical. I will leave it at that. The writing is mesmerizing. I could not put it down, I read it over two days, about 8 hours. Of course this is biased, I am a fan of the character Seven of Nine, so take my review as you will, Thanks for letting write down my thoughts on the book. The cover art is also very nice as well as the contents inside, a story that gives depth and emotion to a crewmember with a mysterious past. The book is well written, the characters are genuinely interesting and developed, the story flows from page to page with building tension. A must for Star Trek fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars I've got it! IT'S THE TITLE!!! July 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
After reading the comment, "The title left a LOT to be desired," it suddenly hit me why so many people are so disappointed in Christie Golden over this story. It's the title!!! Have you ever seen a ST novel before that's named after a character? If the next Voyager novel published is entitled "B'Elanna" or "Tuvok," what are you going to expect? (That was a rhetorical question because the answer's obvious, but I'm going to give it to you anyway.) You would expect a novel in which plot takes second place to characters, *especially* to that certain character. A good example is "Mosaic"--most people agree that the "present" plot is way inferior to the "past"--but even this one wasn't called "Kathryn." Whoever decided on the title for this book made a HUGE mistake (and I also really like the "Sing a Song of Sixpence" idea). It was obviously expected to sell better if everybody knew simply by the title that Seven was the star (even read the synopses on Amazon.com and you know nothing new about plot--just that, duh, it's about Seven). So we all expected some awesome revelation into Seven's past or personality. When we got another plot-driven story instead, greater-than-usual disappointment resulted in at least one person throwing this book against a wall (give me a break). To wrap up, just read this novel like it's any other "Voyager" story, because that's ALL it is. Oh yes, if you want to read Christie Golden at her best, go for "Marooned." And be looking forward to that novel that they HAVE to write eventually (although I wish they'd hurry)-- "Scorpion"!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly adequate Voyager novel, nothing to write home about.
Not a bad read, although it has a dreadfully bland and uninteresting title; yes, Seven of Nine is a major character (arguably, THE major character) in the book, but naming it... Read more
