First of all I would like to say how happy i was that the novels were heading back to Deep Space Nine and her crew as since the series "Season 8" selection of books we really havnt seen much of them recently
This story also takes place within the gamma quadrant with the enterprise and its romulan counterparts.Without giving to much away - this is were i think the story falls a little short. David has wrote a lot of DS9 storys and knows the characters very well and he writes them with ease however the TNG characters seemed to have lost there personality and in some cases there voices - i cant help but feel if David Mack or James Swallow had wrote this the characters would been more consistent with previous novels
However as i said above David does DS9 very well and as much of this takes place on the station its a very easy read, and i cant wait for the follow up book to this which is out next month ( which is nice of pocket books - they tend to schedule these things preety badly) Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn
especially beacuse of those last fateful words of the book.
" And then Deep Space Nine"..........
shall i spoil it for you ..... naaaaaaa - get this now
