When the Mirror Universe was first encountered in the Original Series episode 'Mirror Mirror', it was a immediate hit with Star Trek viewers, a success which was repeated when subsequent series -- most notably several episodes of Deep Space Nine -- revisited this most intriguing of parallel worlds. Now the next in the sequence of Mirror Universe anthologies spanning more than two hundred years of Star Trek history features a dozen new twisted tales from the other universe -- a sinister yet eerily familiar setting where history has taken a different turn. Here the heroes and crewmen we know and love are transformed into radically altered and even opposing characters -- brutal and ruthless versions of themselves. Throw restraint to the winds and indulge the dark side with some of the Mirror Universe's most entertaining villains.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Marco Palmieri is a popular editor, writer, and walking encyclopedia of Star Trek lore. He lives with his family in New York City.
The stories are quite mixed - what might be related to taste. The stories about the Kirk-era are quite fascinating and the spotlight-like treatment of some other characters and their surroundings are quite involved. But sometimes a story was more on its own than the others and the narrative thread of the whole went a bit missing.

That said, if you are interested in what many of the characters in the MU that haven't been introduced and explored yet in prior books this is the book to read. Suddenly you see crews from Voyager, the New Frontier (now I want to read those books as a result of the MU version) and a continuation of some of the characters from Glass Mirrors and the DS9 MU plotlines.
The DS9 stories are the most developed, not surprising considering that DS9 featured and developed the MU plotline the most of all the Trek series. The stories relating to it are very well done and take the plot forward. Unfortunately the "Enterprise" follow up "Nobunaga", was the most disappointing in that it failed to wrap things up. You never find out exactly what happened to Trip, Archer and how things panned out except you do know that the Terran Empire did exist until the events of "Sorrows of Empire". But having watched "In a Mirror Darkly" on Enterprise and reading "Glass Empires" I would've liked to have some closure on this.
In any case, if you want to find out what happened to some of the dangling plotlines in "Obsidian Alliances", the sequel to "Glass Empires" along with other storylines, this is the one to read. I enjoyed it a lot and recommend it highly.
BTW, if the Kindle price scares you (it scares me!) then check out the prices under "Used Books". They are much more palatable.
