This is what a DS9 novel should be like. It has tension, Kira fighting her way through politics and a sense of mystery that isn't a murder. Add a little humour from Quark thrown in and this was a pretty good little book. Definitely enjoyed it.

4.5 StarsThe main theme of this book is conspiracy and unrest. There is so much going on in this novel that it’s hard to know which scandal to focus on. The main focus, though, is a Jibetian ship that was lost centuries ago–disappearing with the planet Jibet’s ruler and the entire crew. The discovery, which was happened upon my Warf because of his desire and greed for wealth, causes a complete upset that puts Deep Space Nine (DS9) at the center of what could be the start of a war. If that [...]

The Long Night is the tale of one world's ruler that escapes a revolution only to be lost to history through the act of betrayal. Eight hundred years have past since the Nibix has gone missing with all hands. Now, a prized relic from the ship's extensive treasure holds has wound up in Quark's bar. If the relic can be traced back to the lost Nibix ship the entire quadrant can be flipped upside down by civil war and the quest for the ship's riches.Although I found this book to be both well written [...]

I started off not liking this book at all. It begins with a lengthy prologue about the ruler of an unknown race. Luckily, it gets better. The main plot involves a legendary missing ship that Sisko and Curzon Dax had often discussed. A sub plot mirrors the main with Jake and Nog exploring some mysterious passageways on DS-Nine. Once I got through the first 100 pages or so, I really began to enjoy the book. I am a little disappointed that the story includes guest appearances by many semi-regulars [...]

This is an engaging story, utilizing the entire main cast in one way or another throughout the novel. The finished work seems to call for a follow up of some sort; the "rush to the finish" is too blatant here. Smith sets up the story very well, providing details and drawing off the rich history of Trek. The problem is the climax feels like a let down in the end. There's a ton of build upwith a limp ending. Even with that issue, still an enjoyable adventure with the DS9 crew.

A nice story about a lost spaceship that's known to have lots of treasure on board. The cover is a bit misleading as Odo and Quark are only in the B storyline. It's more about Sisko, Dax, Bashir and O'Brien than them. The treasure hunt keeps you reading, and the political intrigue adds a bit of depth. A good read.

One of the good ones! An interesting premise, the characters were spot-on and pretty much all the main characters got their moment to shine. (Gotta say, though - they find a Cardassian spy station that shows signs of recent use on DS9 and noone even questions whether this might perhaps have something to do with the resident Cardassian spy? C'mon.)

This is the first book I have read by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. The story unfolded vividly. It was just like an episode of DS9. In fact, after reading it, I am tempted to go back and watch the old episodes.

I loved this one and I'm gonna call it right now. This is my favorite DS9 book and I've only read seventeen of them. The entire premise of a lost ship with the missing religious leader of a planet. Not to mention politics, I even enjoyed the b story in this one.

Even though it had some of the same themes as the last book in the series "Station Rage" this one was a real page turner. Good story. Solid character development. Worth a read for all fans of DS9.

3.5 stars

Another reread - not bad! Kept me interested and the people were all in character, with a good ending.
