They were created to be killing machines. Highly intelligent, resourceful, and deceptively complex, the Jem'Hadar are a species engineered for war and programmed at the genetic level for one purpose: to fight until death as soldiers of the sprawling stellar empire known as the Dominion. No Jem'Hadar has ever lived thirty years, and not even their masters, the shape-shiftin ...more

A fun and exciting novel filled with great action and some fantastic setup for the stories to come. This is classic David Mack: a number of stories come together with some fantastic payoff, while still setting up the novels to come. Four out of five stars is my rating for Warpath. Not to be missed.

Leading into some interesting Mirror Universe stuff and plenty of action!

I probably picked the wrong book for the mood I was in. David Mack is great at writing complex stories that have multiple plot lines that eventually all start to tie together. Unfortunately, I wanted the exact opposite thing- a simple Trek story with only two plot lines. Needless to say, I was left with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth after reading Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Warpath.

I really should have picked a different Star Trek author for my mood but I was intrigued by the idea of David M

I had to give the book only three stars; there were parts that deserved more but then again there was one element that did not deserve any. The main story involved Taran'atar, the resident Jem'Hadar on DS9, who inexplicably decided to betray his masters and nearly killed Kira and Ro before taking a hostage and ship to an unknown planet, with the Defiant in close pursuit. This story was very interesting; it was the offshoots of it that were weird. I felt that Kira's 'dream' while comatose could h ...more

As far as the Deep Space Nine relaunch novels go, this is probably my least favorite. That is not to say it isn't good, far from it, "Warpath" just isn't as good as the others. It's a classic mystery novel that ends on a sort of cliffhanger. The mystery involves Taran'atar and his actions involving Kira and Ro. As the novel goes on, pieces fall into place, but not completely, and certainly not before the end. One of the more fascinating bits of the book is the "Cardassian Woman." Anyone who know ...more

Once more, into the world of the Post Finale Deep Space Nine I ventured.
And this time, it was David Mack as the guide.
Needless to say, I was afraid. (The guy is not exactly sunshine and rainbows, but more edged weapons and a twisted sense of violence that would make harden SEALS go “damn….”).

Following up just moments after the end of ST:Worlds of Deep Space Nine – Olympus Descending, the race is on to capture the renegade resident Jem’Hardar, while Kira and Ro hang on the brink of death.

The DS9 relaunch continues on in Warpath, which picks up where the Worlds of DS9 anthologies left off. (If you haven't read them, stop reading now)

The story mainly follows Taran'atar after his brutal attack on Kira and Ro, and his flight fromt he station. Not a lot happens in this book, but I must say I still enjoyed it. As always since the DS9 tv show, I was fascinated by the facets of Jem'Hadar culture.

Though not a lot happens, a lot is set up here for future books. I'm really interested to s

Excellent story, well written, powerfully moving, with plenty of action, plenty of intrigue, excellent characterizations, good pacing & plot movement. I would have preferred a story that had a more satisfying ending, but at least the immediate plotline was wrapped up as the major back-plot was continued on into the next book. Granted, the chapters that involved Kira's experiences/dreams were kind of jarringly discontinuous with the rest of the story, but I'm sure that we'll see them integrat ...more
The tame Jemhadar on the station goes insane and attacks Kira. He then escapes with a purpose. This is an intriguing story, a tad confusing at times. A wormhole experience is well done, and the alternative universe involvement promises the start of a decent story. NB It does end on a cliffhanger. There are some lovely character moments with Quark and a few others. It would have made a decent tv episode. A good read.

The other issue I have with Trek novels, besides bloated continuities, is the fact that you'll basically have a series of books, which are written by differing authors. If you're gonna do that, I wish the same author would write all the books in the series ... I don't want to read the books before, or after, if they're not written by the guy that I wanted to read in the first place.

This one made me a little sad. I didn't want to see Taran'atar go bad. Great fake out at the end, though. I didn't see that coming. The big reveal of the mysterious Cardassian woman's identity pleased me. They sure do know how to set up the next book in this series...
Andrew Price
A good deal of action, but mostly just a set up for the next book. About half of the book is unnecessary. I wish they would focus on the plot and character development, not on selling as many volumes as they can.

A good book in general terms. The Adventures of DS9 continue but in this book there are too meny paths to follows. A new scenario is opening for Kira. I will read the following book to understand how they want to move the story ahead.

Interesting story.
I liked the bits with the Nausicaan best, I think.

Felt like the book was working towards the books coming after it too much. The ending leaves me wanting more.

Glad I've got the next books in the series waiting on my bookshelf!
Kind of interesting. This Star Trek novel wasn't too bad. Well-plotted compared to some of the other DS9 novels. =)
