Twilight is a tour de force in both the Gamma Quadrant and DS9 storylines. Watching Ro and Quark dance around each other was a particular highlight as was the grim look at Elias Vaughn confronting the ghosts of his past.

Unfortunately where the book falls down is in Book Two: This Gray Spirit. The DS9 sections are riveting, with Heather Jarman inhabiting the character of Kira with ease. However the Gamma Quadrant storyline is, quite frankly, dull. Far too much time is spent building things up without much of a payoff, Ezri comes as whining and grousing and virtually nothing is established about the Yrythny-Cheka conflict, instead choosing to focus on the tedious factional troubles of the former.

Still, I would recommend this duology to anyone.

Really enjoy these DS9 follow-up books.

Find all the new/reintroduced characters in these books much more appealing (better fleshed out) than those in the Next Gen ones.
And the continuing stories of the TV series main characters are great.
I'd have preferred a little less of the Andorian family troubles, but even those scenes were written well,
and were useful for introducing the new counselor.

Pity there isn't a second omnibus addition.
I really want to read the next two Mission Gamma books, but they cost a bit more than I can afford.
(There are a lot of Star Trek follow up books to read)

Highly recommend for any DS9 fans,
although it'd be helpful to read the books that come before it first.

These Haunted Seas is worth getting for "Twilight" alone, as it has become really hard to find in recent years, being sold second hand for crazy prices. Let's hope another omnibus of Cathedral and Lesser Evil (maybe Rising Son as well) comes out soon.

Lack of interest. Mostly boring. Nothing special. There was nothing new or interesting here, in fact it is obvious as several story lines are in place - non of them hold up on their own.
