I found the book a fast read with intrigue and mystery,true charactizations and a well-written storyline.
Joe Zika
It's such a pleasure to get into the "Star Trek" universe with a book like this, one that stays true to all the very best about the series.
Amazon Customer
The pace must keep the reader turning pages, but at the end there's got to be another book's worth of story left to tell.

Star Trek: Voyager String Theory, Book 2 Fusion written by Kirsten Beyer is the second installment in the trilogy called String Theory.

As we left "Cohesion" in a cliff-hanger, "Fusion takes right off where "Cohesion" left off. As Tuvok takes a shuttle for an unathorized flight to the center of the Monorhan system, it is Kathryn Janeway who is the main character in this volume. She is on a quest to learn the meaning of why is there life in this binary system where no life should exist at all. Kristen Beyer does a very good job of hold the story's interest to the reader with all of the different threads floating about in this story. "Fusion" takes the initial story and runs with it, making the reader engrossed and well entertained with the storylines. As the cosmos unravels, Janway is in pursuit of Tuvok as he finds a space station the size of a city next to a singularity that was the second star in the binary system. The space station in powered by the singularity and the crew of the Voyager make quick studies as to what the station can do to get them home to the Alpha Quadrant. With all of its mistique, the space station proves vexing to the crew of the Voyager as they discover a 50 year old spaceship docked in the hanger of the station and no crew to be found.

Later we find out the consequences as to what happened and will it affect Voyager and her crew. This is an interesting storyline woven into the fabric of this book's story. Beyer does a good job holding the readers attention and makes you read on till the end where there is another cliff-hanger making you want to read the third installment "Evolution".

All in all, this is a captivatingly interesting story that is true to the Voyagers characterizations.

String Theory: Fusion, by Kirsten Beyer, continues the strong Voyager performance shown in Cohesion, though there are more minor problems here than there were in the first book. Still, Beyer does herself proud with her first novel (she has a lot of screenplay and teleplay credits, however). It has a bit more technobabble than the first one did (and that one did have a lot), but Beyer doesn't completely forget the characters. In fact, she concentrates on the Voyager crew even more than Lang did.

The starship Voyager continues its trek through an area of space that shouldn't exist. Space continues to fall apart around it, but the crew has more to worry about. Tuvok, their security officer, has made off with a shuttle (it's amazingly easy to steal these things) and is answering a psychic call that leads him to a fueling station inside the singularity. Risking the entire ship to follow him, Janeway and her crew manage to navigate (with a little help from the array itself) to a docking port, where they discover the answer to all of their refueling needs. They also discover a mystery, one that will lead them to the answer of what happened to the 14th tribe of the Monoharans that left their home planet in search of paradise. They also find another mystery, one that harkens back to one of their early adventures, and one that could ultimately lead to their destruction. Even if they rescue Tuvok in time to prevent a hideous (or joyous, in his thoughts) transformation, will they be able to save Janeway?

There are passages in Fusion that tend to drag, mainly when Janeway is having the entire history of the alien race explained to her.

While I have only reviewed a few Voyager novels on amazon.com, I have read roughly a dozen. "String Theory: Fusion" is hands-down the best.

As an earlier review noted, this novel is Voyager's epic. Instead of using the same old recyclable plots like some Star Trek books do, "Fusion" had a unique premise and managed to juggle multiple plots successfully. Initially, I was quite confused, finding myself faced with too many new characters as well as a complicated plot. Still, this confusion only furthered my drive to continue reading.

"Fusion" begins right where its predecessor ended. Tuvok has mysteriously stolen a shuttle and headed off for an enormous structure in Monorhan space that looks more like a giant city than a space station. Meanwhile, the "key" that was given to Janeway at the end of "Cohesion" has attracted the attention of a powerful species who will go to any lengths to protect their own interests. To top all of this off, an intriguing new technology has the potential to bring Voyager home. (Okay, so we as readers know that's not going to happen, but the crew is highly motivated by the discovery).

In the end, Beyer does not disappoint: she beautifully weaves the various plots and characters together to reveal a unified story. And while Tuvok is on the front cover, Janeway is the main protagonist of this tale. Tuvok and the rest of the crew do play significant parts, but ultimately it is Janeway who must discard her previous understanding of the universe and use this new knowledge to discover the true history of Monorhan space.

The stakes waged in "Cohesion" are raised in "Fusion" as the very fabric of the universe (not just the fate of a single planet) depends on Voyager's success.
