S.D. Perry and Britta Dennison do a great job with a challenging task in this final book of the Terok Nor trilogy. They had to tell us new and interesting things about the characters from the first two books and bridge them into the existing canon without every outcome feeling totally inevitable and lacking in suspense for fans.

Although parts of the book feel a bit like just tying up loose ends, the exploration of some of the characters - particularly Kira Nerys and Natima Lang - still feels cre
The last in the Terok Nor trilogy. It chronicles Odo's journey of self discovery, from lab experiment to Security officer. Kira is shown as a vital part of the resistance. The terrible medical experiments of the Cardassians are also covered. Finally, it shows the political pressure and revolution that leads to Bajor's independence. There's a lot of story strands and character development in this novel. It introduces Quark and the growth of his bar. There is some nice character based plots. I thi ...more
This book (and series) has a lot of great qualities and a few big meh qualities. The authors of the 2nd and 3rd books really understand the characters, and characterization is pretty much perfect throughout (1st one not so much). They have a lot of canon they have to fold in and they do that really well with a great attention to detail. It illuminates how horrible the occupation of Bajor was and how much the Bajorans have gone through, so you can understand them a bit better. The downsides for m ...more

S.D. Perry and Britta Dennison bring the Terok Nor trilogy to a fine close with “Dawn of the Eagles,” a grandiose novel detailing the last decade of the Cardassian occupation of Bajor. The novel grows organically from the duo’s previous installment “Night of the Wolves” while keeping in mind the patterns put in motion in the series’ first volume “Day of the Vipers”.

James Swallow created a somewhat clinically analytical beginning in “Day of the Vipers,” immersing the reader in political processes
Slowly made my way through this final book of the Terok Nor series in little spurts at night. The authors did a good job of bringing together the many characters and plot lines to the required conclusion that sets up the start of the DS9 series, fleshing out many histories only briefly mentioned in the actual show. At the same time they wrap the story full circle around to where the first book began, with the Bajorans facing with trepidation seemingly necessary overtures with an alien race, only ...more
An eminently satisfying conclusion to the Terok Nor trilogy. While the final push by the Bajoran resistance leading to the Cardassian withdrawal felt a little rushed, the true heart of the story was what really counted: the characters. Perry and Dennison have a great feel for what makes these characters tick, and that expertise came through on every page of Dawn of the Eagles.

As a whole, the Terok Nor trilogy was a rewarding read for someone like me, who is a very big fan of Deep Space Nine. Thi
Five stars, if only because I couldn't put it down. It was a brilliant conclusion to the series, and showed the latter 15 or so years of the Cardassian Occupation well, highlighting the victories and defeats, as well as the people behind them. Some of the chapters were quite short, but it all balanced out in the end. I quite enjoyed the various tie-ins to episodes in the series.

Good enging to the saga of Bajor and Terok Nor. I'm a bit diasppointed that the ore-processing station that'd later become Deep Space 9 didn't play a bigger part in the story, as the series is named after it after all.

I loved the complexity of the Cardassians and their society, the Oralians and their faith made a good comparison to the Bajoran religion.

A satisfying finale to the DS9 historical trilogy...and it only loses one star because the final Bajoran push to force the Cardassians off their world seems very much a behind-the-curtain, anti-climax that SHOULD have been showcased. It leaves a "what just happened" after-taste at odds with the rest of this fine novel.

Not as good as "Day of the Vipers", but better than "Night of the Wolves", this book tells the story of Odo's development and becoming an investigator on Terok Nor, as well as the end of the Occupation. I also recommend this book to DS9 fans.
