Plenty to offer 21 juillet 2008
Par Kevin C. Jones - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
In my opinion, the negative reviews this book is getting are based solely on the fact that it didn't give people what they wanted. They expected Fearful Symmetry to continue the action of Warpath, to provide confrontation and lots of plot twists. I can see why they're disappointed, but I also think there's a ton of great stuff going on with this book. Keep an open mind, and you'll enjoy it.

Where Warpath was all about action and drama, Fearful Symmetry slows down and really lets the characters shine. Sisko's scene at the beginning of side 1 gives the purpose in a nutshell: to look at the possibilities and paths things might take. All of the characters get their screen time, even the minor ones. Olivia Woods has them all down pat, and does an excellent job of making you want to know what happens to them next. I'm sad that I have to wait another year for The Soul Key and The Never Ending Sacrifice (August and September 2009), but now I want to read them more than ever.

As for Iliana's story, yes, it's brutal. But it's not graphic...Woods doesn't get into detail for the brutal parts. What she does achieve, however, is to make Iliana Ghemor into a deep, sympathetic villain. I almost find myself rooting for her after reading her story. And the way the two sides of the flipbook intersect is brilliant. Just make sure you read side 1 first.

I would give the book five stars if it were longer. If Pocketbooks were serious about keeping these stories going, they should get them out more often. Otherwise, they're going to lose readers who are tired of waiting.

Solid Story 22 août 2008
Par Gregory Fischer - Publié sur
Format: Poche
The good - I really enjoyed the writing. I'm not familiar with Olivia Woods, but I thought she had a pretty good handle on the characters and the story flowed fairly well.

Part one followed up nicely on the events in Warpath, but as others have noted, the story is much too short. I wanted more.

Part two follows Iliana Ghemor's journey from artist to member of the Obsidian Order to Kira's replacement. This part of the book has a major hurdle to overcome, because as other reviewers have noted, most of us want more of the main story, not Iliana's origin. So it was hard to start this side without a negative attitude, but the more I got into the story, the more I enjoyed it. It's a good look at the cruelty of Dukat and why Iliana wasn't subsituted for Kira (although that is actually also answered in the first part, but explored in more detail here). It's also a good behind the scenes look at Cardassian policies and politics.

The Bad: It's been a long wait to only get 130 pages or so of the main story. And according to the psiphiboards, it will be a long wait until we get the follow up novels "The Soul Key" and "The Never-Ending Sacrifice," which won't come out until August and September 2009.

Overall: Short, but good, and a must read if you're a fan of the DS9 novels.

Whew! I had a hard time following this one 9 août 2009
Par Glass Lady - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I've been a trekkie (not treker) since the 60's...Read every genre. But I have to say, I had a real hard time keeping up with this one. Too many universes and too many incarnations of Kira and her counterparts. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who was not familiar with the Star Trek alternate universe theme. It's easy to get lost.

The First DS9 Relaunch Book I COULD Put Down :-( 30 juillet 2009
Par DD - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I have read every book in the DS9 relaunch, and this is the most disappointing one. It's not that Woods doesn't try, but she spends too much time focusing on Iliana Ghemor and the alternate universe characters (of which there are many!), thus spending far less time than she should have on developing the characters of the DS9 cast. About a third of the book is devoted to explaining how Iliana Ghemor of the "prime" universe managed to convince people in the alternate universe to help her in her quest to fulfill the role of Emissary. This chunk of story could have been alloted to Ghemor of the alternate universe, as readers will see that she is a very significant character, as well as to Kira, Vaughn, and Taran'atar. Woods sets each of them on an interesting path - Kira comes face to face with an alternate Opaka and Winn while Vaughn and Taran'atar both make difficult choices. Developing his arc -- along with Taran'atar's would have served the story -- and longtime fans -- much better. Of all the relaunch books, this is the first I did not have an urge to read through in one sitting. After waiting a year for this book and 4 years for the conclusion to the alternate universe plot, it is a little disappointing to see it done so poorly.

Nevertheless, Woods manages to set new plots in motion that will undoubtedly affect the future of those living aboard DS9 -- assuming that Pocket Books ever gets around to putting those plots into print. Woods ties the alternate Iliana into the metaplot for "season 9" in a very interesting way. The epilogue in this book is not to be missed if you've been following the series and plan to continue.

Aptly titled 16 août 2008
Par Val Narov - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Years after Kira's surgical alteration by the Obsidian Order to resemble Iliana Ghemor, the implications of that mission resurface as Iliana is back, but there are two identities conflicting in her. Likewise, Kira's Mirror universe counterpart is dead thanks to Iliana, and the Mirror Iliana has crossed over to stop her. The undercover mission that Iliana was initiated, but something went tragically wrong. Something that only becomes apparent after reading Fearful Symmetry.

It was worth the wait and far too compelling at times to put down.
