Overview

They were created to be killing machines. Highly intelligent, resourceful, and deceptively complex, the Jem'Hadar are a species engineered for war and programmed at the genetic level for one purpose: to fight until death as soldiers of the sprawling stellar empire known as the Dominion. No Jem'Hadar has ever lived thirty years, and not even their masters, the shape-shifting Founders, know what such a creature is capable of becoming were it to be freed of its servitude.

One Founder, however, has dared to wonder.

Appointed by Odo himself to learn peaceful coexistence aboard Deep Space 9 ™, Taran'atar, an Honored Elder among the Jem'Hadar, had for months been a staunch, if conflicted, ally to the crew of the station, ever struggling to understand the mission on which he was sent . . . until something went horrifically wrong.

Consumed by self-doubt and an ever-growing rage, Taran'atar has lashed out against those he was sworn to aid. While Captain Kira Nerys and Lieutenant Ro Laren both lie near death aboard DS9, their assailant has taken a hostage and fled into Cardassian space, pursued by Commander Elias Vaughn on the U.S.S. Defiant. But as the hunt unfolds, Taran'atar's true objective becomes increasingly less certain, as the rogue Jem'Hadar leads the Defiant to a discovery even more shocking than his crime.

I have been a fan of the DS9 series since it launched. I like the "re-launch" though I still would prefer more novels set during the run of the show. As a continuation of the story of DS9 and it's characters, this is ok. There are too many plotthreads and the development of some of them is weak. At times it held me...but then the incident with the comet occured. (spoilers follow)Elias Vaughn has over eighty years of experience as a Star Fleet Officer (ooo, yes, I am that much of a DS9 geek). The guy is over 100 years old...there is no way in hell (or on any planet of your choosing) that he would automatically assume that Prynn's combadge was the person herself. It's destroyed & he's suddenly certain she's dead & Taran'atar killed her. I was willing to stretch my disbelief to cover him...but when EVERYONE bought that line without a dissenting voice, the book fell to pieces.Still, I am looking forward to the next one; it's my soap opera afterall!
