Death prowls the passageways of Deep Space Nine.

FROM BACK COVER: When Deep Space Nine is forced to curtail entry to the wormhole due to increased graviton emissions, an air of biting tension settles over the station. But when this anxiety leads to the murder of an Edeman religious leader, Commander Benjamin Sisko and Security Chief Odo realize they face a larger problem.
The missionary is only the first to die. Soon Sisko and Odo have more lifeless bodies on their hands and a killer who strikes without motive. Then, both the Edemans and Cardassians arrive threatening to destroy the station unless the murderer is given to them for retribution. Now in order to save Deep Space Nine and stop the killing, Odo must try to destroy a powerful assassin who is the only link to his mysterious past.

What a surprise! I just finished watching the whole series fewer than two weeks ago and I'm still in the mood for more adventures in the Deep Space 9 universe!

This is volume #2 of the series but it says it's the first original novel based on the show-- what a thrill to have a chance to read that :-) This one seems very Odo-centric, which is great. And I just love some of Peter David's other Star Trek novels. So I'm looking forward to this one.

Wow! Thank you! *hugs*

Journal Entry 4 by KateKintail from Burke, Virginia USA on Wednesday, March 31, 2010
I devoured this book. This is book #2 in the Star Trek Deep Space Nine series but that means it's the first original novel based on the show. It was written by the great Peter David, so it's good, but it was written after he had seen only a few episodes of the show. That was enough for him to get a sense of the characters and types of stories to expect. In theory.

In practice, things a little different. Odo is more casual around Sisko than he should be. Sisko's interactions with the Cardassians is a little off. Also, it's strange to see a shapeshifter acting like this (though there was no way to know what they would become at this point in the series).

However, as a whole, the story fit very well into the universe. I could forgive the slight character differences/oocness because they were new to each other and their environment still. And the shapeshifter was a renegade of sorts so it could act however it wanted to without throwing off the rest of canon. So it was actually quite interesting to see this fresh, early version of the characters. So the problems actually weren't problems at all. The story was mysterious, exciting, and I could absolutely picture it happening as part of the Star Trek universe.

I finally got around to reading this one, and sped through it one day. No time for a detailed review, but I really liked it. Peter David always does a good job with the Star Trek Universe, and it was fun for me to revisit Deep Space Nine, when I haven't seen the show in years. Now I want to watch some episodes. Plan to wild-release this one right away.
