Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Fall: The Crimson Shadow comes a compelling and suspenseful tale of politics and power set in the universe of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Elim Garak has ascended to Castellan of the Cardassian Union...but despite his soaring popularity, the imminent publication of a report exposing his peoples' war crimes during the occupation on Bajor looks likely to set the military against him. Into this tense situation come Dr. Katherine Pulaski - visiting Cardassia Prime to accept an award on behalf of the team that solved the Andorian genetic crisis - and Dr. Peter Alden, formerly of Starfleet Intelligence. The two soon find themselves at odds with Garak and embroiled in the politics of the prestigious University of the Union, where a new head is about to be appointed. Among the front-runners is one of Cardassia's most respected public figures: Professor Natima Lang. But the discovery of a hidden archive from the last years before the Dominion War could destroy Lang's reputation.

As Pulaski and Alden become drawn into a deadly game to exonerate Lang, their confrontation escalates with Castellan Garak - a conflicted leader treading a fine line between the bright hopes for Cardassia's future and the dark secrets still buried in its past.

Easily my favourite Star Trek novel

The post-DS9 story Elim Garak deserves and a perfect follow up to the Dominion War (Cardassia’s de-Nazification). Dr Pulaski was a nice touch!

Are we there yet

Really mixed on this book, being a fan I did appreciate the book but had a brutalist struggle getting through it. I'm sure it's a great book to the right fan but it can be a bit distracting and monotonous. Very limited on energy but naration was good.

Enigma Tales review

This is now one of my favourite books. I love how Una McCormack handles the politics of Cardassia and the subject of reconciliation.
The narrator also gave each of the characters different voices and was quite entertaining.

More DS9 please!

Robert Petkoff can do no wrong when it comes to Star Trek audiobooks and makes it worth every penny, even when the source material is average. That being said, I beg-- BEG-- S&S audio to please make more full length Star Trek audiobooks with this genius of a narrator.

This book for me was interesting but unless u are a hardcore trekie and can handle politics this is not for u. it is nice to hear what has become of cardasia prime after the war.

Good Story for those following Garak

It's a good story for Star Trek fans it gives us more about what happens to Cardassia after the Dominion War, But the stories nothing special and on it's own really didn't keep my attention.

Absolutely brilliant!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this writers presentation on the Cardasians and their post DS9 story. DS9 was always the ‘messy’ complex aspect of the Star Trek Universe that is an obvious of Earth’s own past and current events. Here the author has brilliantly taken that theme and expanded on it bringing about a moving and dynamic story. Its no exaggeration to say I was moved and found emotionally involved with the characters. I truly hope there are and will seek more books by this author. Bravo!!!

Must read for any DS9/TNG fan

While I must admit I’m biased as I have told many that my favorite Trek characters are Garrek and Polasky, this book is truly the best (out of a couple dozen books read) I have ever read/heard.

The comparative struggles to a young newly democratic free Cardassia is so perfectly parallel to struggling democracies that humidity faces today.

From covering the “fake news” issue, demagogues, to admitting past mistakes, to not be fearful of admitting the truth and keeping honest conversations going; this book is truly breathtaking and perfect example of Star Trek core values it’s been promoting for 60 years.

The voice actor also did a superb job, also the best I have heard from any audiobook.

Enjoy!

Absolutely a must for Garak fans.

Una does an excellent job of writing for Garak and Robert Perkoff voices him to the letter!

As a DS9 fan I had to stop after 2h listeingin

This is very far from any DS9 storyline.
A real disappointment, Don't buy if you are a DS9 fan.

Great after story.

Loved that this was a story with Garak. Sad that Bashir was sick though, he should have been a pen pal.

Lazy writing

Well first the author did not bother to create a truly cardassian society he or she simply took a human culture and overlaid a few cardassian terms. At no point did the story have a true Star Trek feel. To be honest this story read more like a mediocre fanfiction than a serious Star Trek novel.
