Intendent Kira, Overseer for the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, has entered into a dangerous liason with Annika Hansen, a secret agent of the Obsidian Order. But that is not the only threat she faces. The sadistic Deanna Troi and intendent B'Elanna Torres would both gladly see her deposed.

I read this duology because I was interested in who, and what, 7's counterpart would be. In the mirror universe she was never assimilated. So I wondered if she'd be known as Annika Hansen. Wondered if she'd be fully organic. I should have known in any universe she'd be 7 of 9. Should have known no matter what she'd have bionic implants. Should have known she'd eventually find her way to the Starship Voyager and Janeway.
The thing I really liked about the first volume was that it had a pretty even balance between Agent (of the Cardassian Obsidian Order) Seven and evil Kira. We got to see LOTS of both. But in this second volume, the focus becomes mainly on Seven, while Kira becomes more of just a supporting character. Also, I found some situations seemed to be solved too easily and implausibly. And it sometimes felt a little rushed compared to the first volume, like the author was trying to squeeze in the ending under a certain page limit.
And by the end of the book it becomes ENTIRELY focused on Seven, and ends with a rather preachy ending that I didn't like at all (--because I'm rooting for the BAD guys, and that's the whole reason why I love the Mirror Universe!) So to really love this book I'd say that you should be a major fan of Seven. (Hey, I like her and all, but evil Kira is one of my FAVOURITE Star Trek characters of all, and I guess I was disappointed that she didn't get equal coverage this time out.)
In addition, the book's cover is misleading and will no doubt leave many Janeway and Crusher fans in disappointment, as Janeway is just a very minor character here and Beverly Crusher is barely even in the book. The cover SHOULD have featured B'Elanna Torres and Deanna Troi instead of them.
Also, like some other reviewers I wonder if these 2 books could not have just as easily been published together in 1 volume?
But still, I feel happy to have had a chance to pay another visit to that twisted dimension that is the Mirror Universe. I hope that the people putting these Star Trek books out will hear me when I say that I would love to see MORE books featuring adventures set there -- preferably with more focus on the wonderful baddies who populate it.
