First volume in the “Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” novel series.
Simon and Schuster, 2004
Cardassia. Ravaged by the Dominion War which its leaders helped to begin, this once proud and xenophobic planet is the last place Miles and Keiko O’Brien thought they would build a life. But Cardassia’s struggle to make itself anew and to throw off the legacy of its imperial past is hampered by those who prefer the old traditions. Una McCormick weaves a tale which brilliantly captures a world of contradictions: the need to atone and the steely darkness that share the Cardassian soul.
