4.0 out of 5 stars Temporal rollercoaster., 3 Jun 2000
This review is from: Millennium: Inferno Bk. 3 (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) (Mass Market Paperback)
Wow, i'm dizzy. Back and forth, to and fro. This books storyline is vertigo enducing. The authors had an awful lot to tie up in this book, and you'll never be left thinking 'when is something interesting going to happen'. But i think they went overboard. How the hell did they survive the end of the universe? Subspace bubbles is a little to easy a solution in my mind. And how did Vic get out of the holosuite? With the characters rushing backwards and forwards between the Day of Withdrawl and the day of DS9's apparent destruction six years later, its confusing enough, but the characters keep changing their plan. The ending is a real let down, and i'm surprised even Sisko and the others didn't jump from the page and complain to the authors. This trilogy is like the original Star Wars trilogy (Epsiodes IV-VI) with the middle part the best one (long live The Empire Strikes Back!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of a masterpiece, 22 Feb 2003
M. Towler "StargateFan" (Blackburn, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Millennium: Inferno Bk. 3 (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) (Mass Market Paperback)
The first part to this book set the story perfectly. The characters were 100% believable with Quark getting on everybody's nerves and trying to make a profit(does he ever stop). It starts off with Sisko and the DS9 crew learning about the fabled Red Orbs of Jalbador and it turns out that Jake and Nog found a secret lab in DS9 that a Cardassian had used to experiment with one of the orbs. This is all started by the murder of an Andorian ambassador, Dal Norlton. Then a hunt for the other 2 Orbs rages on, with Sisko and the DS9 crew after them as well as a member of the Obsidian Order. Perhaps luckily Sisko finds them and the merging of the red orbs happens and hell breaks loose on DS9 breaking it apart and opening a second wormhole and the Defiant is flung 25 years into the future...
In the future, the Defiant emerges and is instantly attacked. The story in the 2nd book revolves around how to destroy the Ascendancy by destroying Bajor (if you've read it, you'll see its a good thing!). Also the characters were very believable. One particular moment is when Quark is trying to reconcile his differences with Odo because they might very well die and Odo recognises how 2 adversaries must congratulate each other on their tactics and cunningness, so Odo goes over and has a talk with...Garak. Very humourous and believable. There is also a very confusing time travel exploration that i had to read a few times to get what they were saying! But all in all, a very good book. The end of the 2nd book is the end of the universe and Sisko finds himself in Hell.
The third book opens with all the DS9 crew experiencing their own versions of Hell, and are subsequently drawn out of them. Then it moves on to how this crew must get their universe back and go on away missions to Deep Space Nine in differernt times and they are being transported back and forth in these timezones, forward a certain amount of time and backward a certain amount, each time coming closer to an event associated with the Red Orbs (read the book and you'll understand). During which, we find out who murdered Dal Norlton, Odo sees for himself who it is, though he can't be seen by the murderer! The book ends with everything falling into place and DS9 back as it was and the universe whole again and everything is well! The ending of the book also has a nice twist. Prophecies were written about this by 3 mystics who we find out to be a short friend of Jake's(Nog), probably Starfleet's greatest captain(Picard) and a profit hungry (not Quark) archaeologist(Vash). That is a lovely twist to the tale, that it all might not of happened if they hadn't wrote the prophecies (you find out in book 2 how they go back and do it) or they were meant to write the prophecies in the first place because they had already written the prophecies(confused?)
All in all this book was superb, although some of the explanations are hard to follow, any Trekkie fond of DS9 would love this book on their bookshelf as it is a fantastic read with great description so you can imagine what is happening and see it. I've read this book twice and after I've read Lord of The Rings, I am going to read it again.
