After James Swallow's content heavy but somehow stiff opening "Day of the Vipers," the reign of the Terok Nor trilogy is given to S.D. Perry and Britta Dennison. The previous installment ended in the military coup of Bajor by the Cardassians, so now it's time to dive into the reality of the occupation. Utilizing a respectable amount of characters, plotlines and themes, "Night of the Wolves" is a bafflingly full accomplishment. And unlike Swallow's previous novel, this one is extremely readable a ...more

In many ways, this miniseries suffers from some of the same problems that the Star Wars prequel films did: it tells a story that does not end well. While the trilogy has to end with the liberation of Bajor, we know that there is going to be a lot of suffering before that happens, which is something that can sour a reader on this series. However, if one can get past that initial trepidation, Terok Nor is a trilogy with an excellent payoff: very well-written books telling an enthralling story abou ...more

One of the best tie-in novels I've ever read. The Cardassian and Bajoran characters, Odo and Quark are very well drawn, and the Cardassian intrigues in particular are extraordinarily well done. Teh authors do a fabulous job of portraying the complexities of Cardassian factional politics and state loyalty. Being very much a fan of the Cardassians, I love this.

If I have a criticism there is that there were just too many plot threads and characters - it felt at times like the material for six books
Jun 27, 2017 Matthew rated it really liked it
Book 2 of the Terok Nor trilogy moves at a considerably quicker pace than the first, but that may be an illusion due to just how many characters it tries to juggle. Fortunately, the authors are capable enough to make that work even if it does cause my brain to work overtime as a try to remember each person involved in the tale.

The book jumps around consistently, rarely staying on one character for more than a few pages, and a number of the story threads are abandoned part way through (I assume/h

Eighteen years ago, the Cardassian Union abandoned pretense and formally annexed the planet it had already manipulated and tricked its way into dominating. Bajor has suffered greatly at the hands of the military dictatorship since, its economy cast into ruins as the Cardassians impose a kind of mercantilism that destroys the environment and shifts most resources to the Union. Not content to complain and malinger in refugee camps, however, many Bajorans have taken to active rebellion. Hiding in t ...more

Night of the Wolves picks up midway into the Occupation of Bajor and is a much smoother read than Swallow's Day of the Vipers.

Even more importantly, it really starts to get into things we may not have known about characters that are familiar to us. And it does this in a way that doesn't feel clunky or laboured but flows and carries us along in a state of suspense.

As a feminist, I'm always looking for complex and empathetic depictions of female characters. The description of Kira Meru in Night o

With new authors continuing the story of the Cardassian occupation of Bajor, this novel follows a similar style to Swallow's "Day of the Vipers" with multiple storylines across a grand scale, encompassing points of view from both races. The cast of characters are written more naturally here, perhaps, their behavior and dialogue feel less artificially constructed. Unfortunately, the use of the characters in the overall plots severely lack construction, to the story's detriment. Rather than tying ...more

I liked this book much better than the first in the series. Not because it was better written, but because the amount of familiar faces made it more easier to connect with.

This book, like the first, was obviously the product of intense and extensive research. There's a vast amount of information conveyed (about people, places, social structures, etc) but it is given in a way that always makes sense within the plot, and avoids info-dumping.

In terms of the characters used, I was surprised by how

This is the second book in the "Terok Nor" series, which details the Cardassian invasion, rule, and presumably in book three, withdrawl from Bejor. Book one, "Day of the Vipers", was well-written but unrelievedly depressing, not at all an enjoyable read. This book, while still not without its depressing side, wasn't nearly so bad; we did at least get to see some successes on the part of the Bajoran resistance movement, and it was every bit as well-written as the previous installment. Certainly, ...more

Two female authors give this book a different feel than the first book in the series. More of the characters are women, and there is also a small amount of romance (compared to none in the first book). This book chronicles some of the growing resistance and more of Dukat's self-serving behavior as prefect.

A few Bajoran resistance cells are featured in this book. Kira Nerys and Ro Laren are introduced here. Some of the Bajorans deal with the moral issues regarding the resistance, such as "collat
After reading this book I started reading book 1. That was because I was about 1/2 way through this book when I discovered there was a book 1. I ordered it from my library & it arrived before I finish this one. I didn't want to leave this one half way through so I finished it. Just as well really because if I'd read book 1 first I might not have felt like reading the other two afterwards!

There were lots of story lines introduced but I think the story line that most grabbed my attention was

A great sequel to Day Of the Vipers, probably the best Trek novel I've read so far.

I Loved the details and various characters, which gave a multitude of views on the occupation of Bajor and the Bajoran resistance as well. Many important people from the storyline of DS9, such as Kai Opaka an Kira Nerys are introduced and given a proper background story and Gul Dukat is potrayed a man instead of a monster. Also what was good was the fact that it was established that not all Cardassians are cruel a

Definitely easier to read than the first book in this series, and it takes the threads of the storyline laid down in the first book and establishes more fascinating reading. Without giving too much away, it lays down the rationale for the scripts and plots in the TV series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and provides you with understanding of the character of people like Kira Nerys, Odo, Vedek Bareil, Vedek/Kai Winn, Gul Dukat, Gul Damar, Quark. You see how they fit into the stories that are told in ...more

This book picks up twenty years after the events of the first book. I can see why the authors have decided to do this, they want to reference certain events that were portrayed during the television series, but what galled me is that what happened during the twenty years was mostly glossed over, with a few scant details thrown in. I am also not sure if what happens to one of the characters disagrees with how it was told during the series, too. It was well-written, and the story moved at a good p ...more

Utterly forgettable. The first one wasn't great but at least had a fairly obvious plot... This has all the tedium of the first and I can't see the point of having so many different threads happening at once. They barely came together and some dropped off halfway through. What was the point of the story of damar's fiancé? Geh. This kind of writing style is the worst chore. The only thing that was better than the first book was Dukat's characterization, which was much more true to him. I doubt I'l ...more

This novel looks at the beginning of Terok Nor, the resistance movement and the finding of Odo. Kira does feature a bit, but her mum is in it more. Another clever, involving plot that keeps you guessing. It is interesting how all the threads come together, and you do start to care about all these new characters. A very good read.

A great pre-DS9 novel. I really loved reading about the early lives of Damar, Dukat, Ro Laren, Kira Nerys, and Odo. The other characters were also quite interesting as well especially those not entirely features on the show. The novel really painted a more vivid picture of the Cardassian occupation of Bajor.

Not quite as breathtaking as book #1, as I think it tries to juggle too many plot lines...and one of them in particular never managed to light the fire of compelling interest. Nevertheless, the prose feels seamless with the first book, and there's more than enough fascinating historical world building to satiate any DS9 fan.

While not as good as "Day of the Vipers", this book tells of the beginning of Terok Nor and the ride of the Bajoran resistance, particularly of Kira Nerys and how she got started with the Shakar cell. I also recommend this book to DS9 fans.

Not as good as the first book in the series, "Night of the Vipers" but still does a great job setting up all the events discussed in the DS9 series. Looking forward to read the third book in the trilogy.

a lot better than the first one which is full of weird "everything is interconnected!!!!" crap on a level nearing the Star Wars prequels to the point where it doesn't make sense.
