TP: Raise the Dawn by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)
 

And we're back for Raise the Dawn, the back half of a Typhon Pact duology by author David R. George III, to be released on June 26th. In many ways following on from the author's own Rough Beasts of Empire the first installment of the two-parter, last month's Plagues of Night, continued to take the character of Benjamin Sisko down a path seen as controversial by some, and both books ushered in some of the longer review threads on the board as a result, as well as ancillary, equally intense threads. However, Plagues of Night appears to be generally well-liked so far, ranking quite high (and much higher than RBoE) in the score table. And let's not forget that we're dealing with an ongoing storyline that has yet to reach its conclusion: Signs point to finding it here, and so both fans and critics of recent events should pick this one up to learn what it looks like. And please do be respectful while debating it.

Official Simon & Schuster blurb time:

Quote:

After the disastrous events in the Bajoran system, Captain Benjamin Sisko must confront the consequences of the recent choices he has made in his life. At the same time, the United Federation of Planets and its Khitomer Accords allies have come to the brink of war with the Typhon Pact. While factions within the Pact unsuccessfully used the recent gestures of goodwill—the opening of borders and a joint Federation-Romulan exploratory mission—to develop quantum-slipstream drive, they have not given up their goals. Employing a broad range of assets, from Romulus to Cardassia, from Ab-Tzenketh to Bajor, they embark on a dangerous new plan to acquire the technology they need to take control of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. While UFP President Bacco and Romulan Praetor Kamemor work feverishly to reestablish peace, Captains Sisko, Jean-Luc Picard, and Ro Laren stand on the front lines of the conflict . . . even as a new danger threatens the Bajoran wormhole as it once more becomes a flashpoint of galactic history.
Sadly no excerpt link again, as the Simon & Schuster page hasn't been updated yet.

^ I wouldn't go that far, but I am intrigued as to how the previous novels events can be sorted and how close to a hot shooting war the events in the Gamma Quadrant and DS9 will bring the TP and KA powers.

Still need to preorder it though which I'll get around to doing sometime today.
