Superb story, beautifully told.

In this, the conclusion to the "Dominion War" series, we have the novelization of the final seven episodes of the sequence leading up to the re-taking of Deep Space Nine by the Federation, as seen in the television series. It's a very moving, very powerful, very action-packed series of episodes, and makes for an equally impressive novelization. What's surprising is that Diane Carey actually does it justice; all too frequently, she gets carried away with attempts to be a clever wordsmith and use the language creatively; usually, these attempts fall flat as she manages only to use the language incorrectly. In this book, not only does she do very little of this (I can only think of one example; she refers to Sisko's "magistrating events" when clearly she means "orchestrating"; it is true that a magistrate CAN be an "administrator", and thus, by a large stretch, one could say that Sisko was "administering" events by managing them, but the more commonly understood meaning of "magistrate" is "judge", and she was definitely not trying to tell us that Sisko was "judging" events. He was arranging them, and the proper term for that would be "orchestrating", even if that word HAS been used in that sense before and she therefore finds it boring) but in most cases, when she used words in an attempt to be creative, it actually worked. And, as usual, her characterizations, her pacing, her plotting (in those cases in which she filled in missing gaps in the plot) were all excellent. This story is a must for any fan of the series "Deep Space Nine", for any fan of Star Trek in general, and indeed for anyone who enjoys a well-written Space Opera. If, of course, you hate science fiction in general or the action-based "Space Opera" subgenre, this story won't do anything for you, but if that's the case, why are you bothering to read this review? You already know you don't want to read the book.

Once More Into the Breach....

Diane Carey continues on with this incredible adaptation of the Deep Space Nine episodes. This final book in The Dominion War series leaves me waiting for the re-runs to start-up.I enjoyed this freshly re-told tale, including the introduction of new characters. The brief mention of one of Sisko's friends-Charlie Reynolds-allowed Carey to develop a ship and crew I fell in love with. The final weaving of their story left me touched. I felt involved with a new friend and sad to see it end.Diane Carey always provides me with a surprise, every time I grab up a Star Trek novel by her. Most times I expect to be disappointed by a new cast of characters, but by the final page, I always wish I had more time with them. She provides me with the most mixed emotions and jumbled feels. It is always a pleasure to read her magic.This is the final book in the four part series. I searched for all four of these books together so I would not be lost. Many times I could find the pairing: both DS9 or both TNG, but felt that I needed them all together. I was wrong. Although marketed as a single series, it was simply two, two-part series, with no tie-ins between them. As independent story, take the time to enjoy them.




I think this book was great,not only because Diane Carey is a good writer, but because you can imagine the scene, not sit on ur ass and watch T.V.

What can I's too good for words.

This book is as good as the other DS9 book in the Dominion War series. And, like that one, is FAR better than the pathetic TNG books in the series. The mission to the Argolis Cluster is written here, which is way cool. The only real problem I had was that the USS Centaur was destroyed, and the battle from "Sacrifice of Angels" was pretty short. But all in all, get this one and read it immediately! Don't buy the TNG books unless you collect.
