    The Never Ending Search for a Story

    The title of this book describes how I felt as I read it.
    This is the second book I have read by Una McCormack. First came, Hollow Men, which has tied with "I, Q" for the worst Star Trek novel I have ever read. It made such an impact on me, that I was very uncertain about reading The Never Ending Sacrifice, but being an avid DS9 fan, I went for it.

    The story was very slow to develop, and focused too much on minor details.
    Normally, attention to detail and the subtle weaving of Trek lore and episode references into a novel is a delight to all fans who read the novels but this time is just happened at the expense of the moving the story along and at least one reference (from the episode the plot is chiefly pulled) was wrong.

    Half way through the book I seriously considered taking it to the used book store and not even finishing. I did enjoy the relationship development between Rugal and Kotan, but there just wasn't enough and it was interrupted too many times by minutia and side-stories that neither advanced the plot nor developed the character of the hero. The entirely anticlimactic ending did not help things either.

    I have rarely felt like reading was a waste of time, but this book did it. I'm sure in real life the author is an intelligent, delightful person, but I'm afraid I can never bring myself to purchase another book by her again.
