Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: This Gray Spirit is the third book in the Mission Gamma series for Pocket Books, written by  Heather Jarman, and was released in September 2002.

Following up David R. George’s Massive book Twilight would be a challenge for any author, especially to newer authors. Well, this book is Heather Jarman’s debut (one of her only books), and it is a killer book! I had read her book String Theory: Evolution for Voyager, which I thought was just fine, but not a great book. Here she is obviously much more comfortable writing for Deep Space Nine, and it works in her favor.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Twilight is the first book in the Mission Gamma series written by David R. George III and released September 2002. 

This was an entertaining start to the Mission Gamma series. I’ve only read one David R. George III book, and that was a pretty weak book. However, this book is a significant step up.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Avatar, is a two part book series written by S.D. Perry and was released in May of 2001 by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster. Because of the relatively short nature of the books, and given the fact of how tied-together they are, I am writing my review of both parts jointly. 

After the Season 7 finale of DS9, the tv show is over, and Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster has the perfect opportunity to take the characters and the story and run wild. They decided to choose S. D. Perry to lead off with this two parter series, and so far it is very good…but not stellar.

Book Review: ‘Revenant’ by Alex White

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Revenant is a standalone novel by Alex White that takes place during the fourth season of DS9 and was released by Gallery Books in December of 2021.

My short review can be summed up in one sentence: If you like Jadzia Dax, or even just the character of Dax in general, then you’ll LOVE this book.

This was my first foray into a specifically Deep Space Nine book, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was afraid about breaking into books from this series, as DS9 is my least favorite of the Berman series and as a whole didn’t hold my attention. I picked up this book as part of my goal to read every new Star Trek novel and because it was a standalone DS9 story, which seemed like a better place to start than anything in the post-Nemesis continuity.
