TP: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)




David R. George III and the Typhon Pact return with the first part of a duology, Plagues of Night. Slated for release on May 29th (which puts me a bit earlier than one-week-and-one-day again, but it turns out the weekend is just more comfy for these), a lot of DS9 fans hungry for more have high hopes for this one, seeing as it features our favorite Cardassian-made space station very prominently on its cover.

Take it away, official (and it must be said, DS9-less) Simon & Schuster blurb:

In the wake of the final Borg invasion, which destroyed entire worlds, cost the lives of sixty-three billion people, and struck a crippling blow to Starfleet, six nations adversarial to the United Federation of Planets—the Romulan Star Empire, the Breen Confederacy, the Tholian Assembly, the Gorn Hegemony, the Tzenkethi Coalition, and the Holy Order of the Kinshaya— joined ranks to form the Typhon Pact. For almost three years, the Federation and the Klingon Empire, allied under the Khitomer Accords, have contended with the nascent coalition on a predominantly cold-war footing. But as Starfleet rebuilds itself, factions within the Typhon Pact grow restive, concerned about their own inability to develop a quantum slipstream drive to match that of the Federation. Will leaders such as UFP President Bacco and RSE Praetor Kamemor bring about a lasting peace across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, or will the cold war between the two alliances deepen, and perhaps even lead to an all-out shooting war?
Unfortunately no excerpt link this time, as the Simon & Schuster page doesn't feature one this time around.
