I would recommend that you read the previous volume before this one as the stories run in chronological order and you'll be confused as hell..!

I really enjoyed all three of these stories.

The first centres on Chakotay, captain of a rebel ship, who encounters Neelix. Kes has been kidnapped by the alliance after their vessel was thrown across the galaxy by the caretaker to save them from the kazon. Kes' telepathic abilities are of high value to the alliance, as all telepaths in the alpha quadrant had been exterminated byt the Terran Empire many years earlier. Some of the characters in this story are deliciously evil, and we finally get to see what Kes is capable of (something I felt that we missed out on in the TV series). B'Elanna is great, a sexual deviant to rival the mirror Kira. I can't see Harry Kim as Steven Seagall though, that one was a little hard to believe...

The second story may be a little unfamiliar to people who haven't read the New Frontier books, but this was one of my favourites. Peter David did really well with this one, staying away from his usual sarcasm which can sometimes be a little overwhelming. The Mackenzie Calhoun doesn't make quite as many snide comments. In fact, I liked this Mac a lot. Again with the death toll, there's lots of death here!

The third story takes us to familiar territory and focuses on Kira trying to reclaim her crown, and Smiley O'Brien and the internal struggles and politics of the rebellion. Even more death in this one.

The only thing missing is a conclusion.

Format: Paperback
This book is very well written and the storylines got me hooked, however since I have already read both the Dark Passions book and the William Shatner mirror Universe books the stories came across as quite confusing. This book doesn't continue with either stories from the previous books. This i didn't particulary like as i perfer all the books to be as errorless as possible and since I already had the previous stories in my head, it was quite hard to remove it. Apart from that the book itself is great. As a big fan of Voyager and New Fontier i loved the way this book made the charachters complete opposites from how we know them. For example Janeway and Chakotay are lovers (yay) and si cwan and zak kebron are best friends (weird!).

However any big Star Trek fan will love this book.

Wonderful! 4 May 2007
By TJAMES03 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. It is GREAT sequel (I have always wanted to see the mirror universe Kes). A lot of people are under the false impression that all of the characters in the mirror universe have to be complete opposites of those in our `normal' Trek universe. Wrong. That would be too simple. Some are completely different, and others are only minutely (example: in the mirror universe chapters of "Glass Empires", the Borg are still what they are in our universe, but there are a few differences - Borg King, diamond-shaped ship instead of a cube).

I know that there is going to be confusion for some because of Peter David's "New Frontier" chapters, but if you are confused, go out and read the previous books of "NF". They are some of the best ever Trek-themed novels.

As far as this timeline not following the "Dark passions" reality, no problem. As the TNG episode "Parallels" showed us, there are infinite realties out there. It is up to the reader to decide what they consider `canon' in their reality.

Another thing that I liked about the books is the fact that (even the sadistic characters) have a reason for doing what they do (like with the traitor in the VOYAGER chapters - when you read why they did it, it almost makes you agree with them!).

Also, the mirror universe, some counterparts are much more interesting than those in the regular Trek universe (example being that of the mirror universe Leeta. In the mirror universe, Leeta is not just a dumb Dabo girl, but a fighter and a very intelligent person).

I really hope that we will see a sequel to these great books!

Enjoyable, Well-Conceived "Star Trek" Fiction 21 July 2008
By John Kwok - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just for fun I borrowed this book recently from my local public library, and found a rather delightful surprise with respect to "Star Trek" fiction. While readers will not be surprised with the talents of Keith R. A. DeCandido, and especially, Peter David (whose alternative Romulan Star Empire tale worked well on several different levels), they will be amazed with the ample detail and convincing depictions wrought by first-time author Sarah Shaw in her brilliant visit to the alternate "Deep Space Nine" commanded by Terran Rebellion leader General Miles "Smiley" O'Brien. All three authors do a fine job in depicting the Mirror Universe as seen from the prisms of "Star Trek: Voyager" (DeCandido), "Star Trek: New Frontier" (David) and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (Shaw). While I'm not going to spoil the fun by revealing plot details to you, I will say that there is ample shipboard intrigue and excitement in store in all three novellas. Moreover, I would say that these are among the finer examples of "Star Trek" short fiction which I've come across. Long-time fans of "Star Trek" will not be disappointed, and most certainly will want to add this volume to their collections.

FANTASTIC 16 May 2007
By FRANTA - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was better than the first in the Mirror Series.

Partially because I love the DS9 and New Frontiers Characters but doubly so as I do not care for the Voyager crew and loved that story as well!

Alternate Universe Titles are Much Better! 20 Jun. 2012
By Picardfan007 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is volume two of the mirror universe anthology. The action doesn't let up. In this one we get a fantastic Voyager story by R.A. DeCandido, a New Frontier story by Peter David and a DS9 story by Sarah Shaw. If only the regular universe stories were this dramatic! The action runs at a break neck clip in all the stories. Love, betrayal and high drama are rare in many of the Trek books. Other reviewers can give you plot descriptions. All I have to say is that this one is worth it's price. You won't be let down by all the twists and turns in this three short novel collection!

Mirror, mirror on the wall, recognize this character at all? 20 Feb. 2011
By qazox - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of the mirror universe; this book will entertain you. 3 new stories set in and containing characters from Voyager, Deep Space Nine and New Frontier. Deep down these are still the characters you know and love, but how the mirror universe has changed them might supsrise you. IF you are a ST fan, do pick up this book.
