Kurzbeschreibung

24. September 2013 Star Trek
Cardassia Prime is home to a prideful people who, for centuries, forged alliances with those they believed would strengthen them and their place in the Alpha Quadrant, and expanded their empire at great cost to other worlds. For generations, dissenting voices were silenced by either fear or an early grave. When their wartime ally, the Dominion, suddenly turned on them, seeking to transform Cardassia into a tomb for every last member of their race, their old adversary—the United Federation of Planets— put an end to the carnage, and even now works to help rebuild Cardassia Prime.

To celebrate this alliance, the Castellan of the Cardassian Union is to welcome the Federation president to Cardassia Prime. As a symbol of this deepening friendship, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E is tasked to carry the Cardassian ambassador to the Federation back home. For his part, Ambassador Elim Garak is working with Captain Jean-Luc Picard to oversee the diplomatic reception that will commemorate the last of Starfleet’s personnel finally leaving the homeworld. However, there are malevolent forces at work, who even now strive to “restore Cardassia to its proper place and glory,” and are willing to do anything to achieve their goal....

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Crimson Shadow- 4.5 stars out of 5, minor spoilers 25. September 2013
Von Adrian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. Although the Enterprise is on the cover, don't think this novel is all about the TNG crew. Yes, Picard and Worf are there, but they are merely minor characters in this dramatic novel which stars a cast of Cardassians, foremost of whom is Elim Garak, former Obsidion Order member, tailor, Dominion War hero, and now Ambassador to the Federation.

This novel shows us what makes a good book- it's the storytelling and fleshing out characters, be they human or otherwise. IT is clear the author has put some thought into thinking out the layout of a city hitherto unknown to us in much detail, and some components of it's society. I believe that Una has done such a good job that there is potential for a spin off for each of the 3, possibly 4, Cardassian main characters. The author has done such a good job in making each one a solid character who the reader can get into.

Should you read this latest installment of Star Trek novels? A resounding yes!

ps: I'm going to copy Garak's way of ending personal letters - readers will know what I mean ^_^

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent book about one of the most complex characters in trek history 24. September 2013
Von M. Rice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Where to start? This is an excellent second entry into The Fall series, one that far surpasses its predecessor. McCormack is a thoughtful writer, and one that has always portrayed Cardassians spectacularly. If I had things my way, we'd probably have endless series of books about Cardassians and their political shenanigans.

But more importantly, this is a book about Garak. Garak has always been a character that, at times, might seem at odds with the idealism of Trek. His path towards redemption continues here, and it is both heart breaking and compelling. While there are plenty of additional characters that support the story, it really is all about Garak. If you are a person opposed to the character, then you might find reasons to pause.

But for everyone else? This is a tense story filled with mystery and heart. If you have read A Stitch in Time, you'll find more than a few callbacks to Robinson's novel, and in some ways, serves as something of a sequel.

I highly recommend this book, and I can't wait to see what follows next, both for Cardassia and the rest of The Fall series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Crimson Shadow 25. September 2013
Von Brendan Moody - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I used to read a lot of Star Trek novels, but about four years ago they stopped appealing to me, and I decided to spend my money on other things. But I'm still in touch with people who do read them, and I've never really lost track of what's going on in the Trek novel "universe." So it was probably inevitable that something would pull me back in. The something has turned out to be an event miniseries where the first two books were written by my two favorite Trek novelists back in the day: David R. George III and Una McCormack. I should note that McCormack, author of the book under review here, is an Internet acquaintance of mine: we follow each other on Twitter and occasionally make unfunny jokes about geeky things. But I was a fan of McCormack's work before I ever "met" her, so I don't think it's the personal-knowledge factor that made THE CRIMSON SHADOW such a fast, fun, thoughtful read.

It was, though, probably personal knowledge that got me to read it before the previous book in the series, REVELATION AND DUST, which I own but hadn't gotten around to when THE CRIMSON SHADOW was delivered. I don't know whether I would recommend that course to most readers. There's a biggish plot development in REVELATION AND DUST that also influences events in THE CRIMSON SHADOW; I had already been inadvertently spoiled, but if you're going to read REVELATION AND DUST at all, you might want to do so before starting THE CRIMSON SHADOW.

But enough preliminaries. What is THE CRIMSON SHADOW actually about? In a word: Cardassians. There are smallish supporting roles for some TNG regulars, particularly Picard, but this is basically a book about Cardassia. Nearly ten years have passed within the Star Trek universe since the DS9 finale, and the Federation is preparing to withdraw its occupation and humanitarian forces from Cardassia Prime. Federation President Nan Bacco and Cardassian Ambassador to the Federation Elim Garak have worked out on the final agreement, and all that needs to happen now is a signing to seal the deal. But the end of the occupation means a new order, and not even a tailor like Garak can guarantee that it will be a movement toward freedom and democracy rather than a return to authoritarian xenophobia. When unexpected events on Cardassia Prime and elsewhere threaten to unleash chaos, extraordinary steps may prove necessary to prevent the worst. But will those steps bring about the very moral decline they're meant to avert?

The interesting thing about this novel is that it manages at once to be a fast-paced quick read (I only needed a few hours) and a resonant examination of a society in transition. McCormack has always been good with Cardassians (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Never Ending Sacrifice was the last Trek book I read four years ago, and I definitely left on a high note), and here she focuses on how the Cardassians as defeated aggressors can come to terms with their past and shape a decent future. While there's one obvious demagogue, most characters are honestly trying to do the best thing in a difficult situation, at least according to their own frames of references. But since those frames of reference were shaped by a society that was poisonous and eventually poisoned itself, there's plenty of room for conflict. Almost everyone has something to be guilty about, must struggle with the line between acceptable bending of the rules for the greater good and abuse of power. After a light-hearted Part One, events take a darker turn in Part Two, and the sense of tragedy is, by Star Trek standards, surprisingly potent, as former allies turn on each other and battle lines are drawn.

But, as I've suggested, this isn't a slog through dark territory. Garak being Garak, there's plenty of humor, and McCormack doesn't feel the need to drive her thematic points home with lugubrious language-- a few mentions of the extent of the wartime devastation and of the inherently inhospitable climate on Cardassia Prime prove sufficient. Intrigues piled on intrigues keep the plot moving at a steady clip without becoming over-complicated. And, as in other books, McCormack occasionally plays with omniscient, slightly obtrusive narration, rather than the straight third-person limited of most Trek fiction. I'd like to have seen more of this, actually; it makes a nice change, and compensates for occasional infelicities in the rest of the prose and in the dialogue. Garak aside, the characters aren't terribly complex, but that has its own benefits: they're ordinary people making their way as best they can in a destroyed world. Overall, THE CRIMSON SHADOW is a fine novel, not enormously substantial but more than complex enough for its own purposes, and comes highly recommended to fans of DS9, Garak, or Cardassians generally, and to readers interested in science fiction about the aftermath of tyranny. If you don't want to commit to the full miniseries, it works by itself, but the intersections between it and REVELATION AND DUST (which I've now started) suggest an intriguing approach to the overall structure of THE FALL, one that has me happy, for the moment, to have given Star Trek fiction another shot.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must have for any Garak "lover" 10. November 2013
Von Erik Janeck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Una McCormack does it again! Again she captures the mindset and the troubles of the Cardassians perfectly, as she did before in "The Never-Ending Sacrifice!" Her interpretation of Garak is spot on, as are the other characters in this book. As some others noted, there is not much action in this book, but this book doesn't need shiny action to cover the lacking story. No in this rare case the story is so good, that you can actually enjoy the rare action scenes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Story Telling 13. Oktober 2013
Von mm1surfer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I never thought I would be enthralled with a Star Trek novel set entirely on Cardassian politics and history. Una McCormack was an excellent choice with writing this novel.

We'll done!
