Twist of Faith
Uneasy Peace. Worlds In Flux. Tests Of Faith.
The Final Episode Was Only The Beginning.
The Dominion War is over...or is it? Three months after the Allied victory against the invaders from the Gamma Quadrant, a surprise attack awakens the fear of renewed hostilities. At the same time, a senseless murder sets a space station commander on a path that will test the limits of
Deep Space 9 fascinated me with a cast of characters as flawed as they were good and an episodes that dared to go where previous Star Trek shows hardly dared to tread: the daunting grey areas of life. "Twist of Faith" carries on that legacy and the struggle of a people trying to find their place in a galaxy still reeling from war.
I loved the insights gained into characters I've known for the better part of my adult life. Kira's struggles ...more
(view spoiler)[Although I liked the novella Horn and Ivory, but I'm not really sure what the reasoning was for sending Kira 30,000 years into the past. It ...more
Like a lot of fandom books the tales in this omnibus are not amazing but they are at least good. The difficulty of taking the end of a long running series, especially one that tied itself up so well as DS9, and running with it is large but these step up to the task well and make me at least interested in reading more.
A really excellent start the continuation of the ds9 story. My only real complaint is that at some parts the stories seem rushed, with that said I cant wait to read the continuation.
The stories were all very well put together, giving attention (and a very good voice) to those regulars that were left behind on the station (or from elsewhere in the ST ...more
Since this book contains several novels, I'll review them each:
Avatar Book 1 and 2:
These books were a fantastic start to the DS9 ...more
Avatar Book One of Two (Star Trek Deep Space Nine): A nice, steady build-up of events and characters (old and new) leading into the next part.
Avatar Book Two of Two (Star Trek Deep Space Nine): Pacing and story remained excellent. The last chapter or two took it's time wrapping up loose ...more
The Avatar books were fun, but a little too much in the Enterprise crew's heads - I would rather have spent time with Nog dealing with his PTSD while having a Jem H'Dar on the ...more
This book contains the books: Avatar Book 1 & 2 by S.D. Perry, Abyss by David Weddle, Demons of Air & Darkness by Keith R.A. DeCandido, and the novella Horn & Ivory. It happens 3 months after during a month or two period.
This book I thought ...more
The prose is kind of invisible, which I think is the way to go. There are some ...more
I will say it would have been nice if the series had ended without gutting the cast. No Sisko, no Odo, no O'Brien, no Dukat, no Jadzia, mostly no Garak, no Weyoun... wait, who the heck is left? OK, I guess there's a few people still left on the station.
Also (this is sort of a SPOILER for the book):
Jake going missing seemed to prompt a lot less concern from the ...more
This is an omnibus of the first four books (plus one short story) in the DS9 post-series books, often called the "DS9 Relaunch" by fans. If you liked the TV series, you must read these books, either in this omnibus form or as I did, originally, as separate titles (Avatar books 1 & 2, Abyss, Demons of Air and Darkness, and the story "Horn and Ivory" which appears in one of the Tales from the ...more
It was awesome getting to follow up on Deep Space Nine after the show ended... and the chracters and stories seem to be above average. I really like how the Deep Space Nine has evolved with a new Federation commander, a Jem Hadar joining the crew etc... But at the same time it will never be as good as the show.
It also suffers from the same kind of stuff that all multiple authors have, some threads ...more
