Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you've read the Avatar and Mission Gamma books of DS9, you'll have to read this too. And even if you've haven't, after reading this book you'll want to read the others. This book covers the story of Jake who, after finding an ancient prophecy at B'hala, went searching for his father and ended up missing (this happens in the Avatar books, he was finaly found by the crew of the Defiant in the Mission Gamma Books).
Rising Son tells us what happend to Jake during this time. He was rescued by the crew of The Even Odds, a group of fortune hunters, who are flying across their sector looking for salvage oppertunities. The characters of Even's crew, who include familiar (Cardassian, Ferengi, Wadi, Tosk) and new incredible aliens are expertly written. The hodgepodge crew reminded me a bit of the Thinktank (from a ST:Voyager episode) but are very likeable. You'll love them all, especially Pif an alien K9 species who ads a comedic touch. In his time with them Jake really grows up and becomes torn in his desire to stay with his new friends, and his wish to go home. Jake also meets Kai Opaka (I'm sure I'm not giving anything spoilers away, since she's on the frontcover). And her involvement promisses more exciting books in the future. S.D. Perry combines matters of the hart, the difficulty of growing up, loss and religion, together with an exciting adventure.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the ds9 novels started with Avatar as a literary season 8, and SD Perry continues to excel. She has great skill at capturing the nuances of the politics and characters of ds9 which i found many other DS9 novels (pre relaunch) failed to do.
This book is set entirely in unknown Gamma Quadrant space, and ties in the Bajoran Prophets and their prophecy with Jake Sisko's search. Initially he is looking for his father Ben Sisko but his journy becomes one of self exploration and maturity. He finally learns to stand on his own two feet and cope with the loss of his father.
The ship which rescues him is excellent, and so is the crew. They are a brilliant, eclectic mix of oddball characters with great personalities, even if they aren't ethically perfect. Perry has obviously spent a lot of time on this. The captain's attempt to become a father figure for jake was interesting. Jake's irritation at being used by the Prophets for their own ends was very real.
The climax was a bit odd, i'm wondering how this will tie into DS9's future and if we will see this new alien race in Unity. Cannot wait for the next installment.

Rising Son isn't a typical DS9 story in that it doesn't feature DS9 at all! However don't let put you off as it is a fascinating story featuring what seems like a simple Bajoran prophecy, but actually turns into an amazing journey through the Gamma quadrant that truly shows the power of the Prophets. Jake Sisko is a remarkably deep lead character, his own personal story being excellently written. An essential read for any DS9 fan, especially if they've read the two Avatar books.

Rising Son has been described as "Deep Space Nine meets Firefly", although its more than that. Jake Sisko was a character who got a bit lost towards the end of DS9 itself, so a full novel dedicated to him is overdue. The new characters are excellently fleshed out and the writing style is engaging.
