4.0 out of 5 stars DS9 #6 Betrayal - An interesting plot! Oct. 11 2003
"Betrayal" is the one and only Star Trek effort from this author, at least to date. I find this to be somewhat disappointing as the author did a rather decent job with the plot development and characterizations. I found her writing style to be quite decent and the pacing of the novel to be reasonably engaging. The plot for this story is very interesting and compelling.
The cover art for this title is reasonably decent, yet standard fare for the time in which this novel was published.
The premise:
Deep Space Nine is the staging ground for a conference in which ambassadors from all over the Federation have assembled to determine the future of Bajor. As the stations personnel are having an already difficult time keeping all of these ambassadors happy, terrorist start blowing parts of the station, leaving Sisko and Odo the difficult task of trying to find and stop these ruthless terrorists. To make matters worse, a new Cardassian Gul shows up demanding the return of Deep Space Nine to the Cardassian Union. Commander Sisko must now diffuse this entire situation that threatens the very existence of Bajor.
What follows is a rather decent early Deep Space Nine story that is told fairly well and I would recommend this novel to any and all fans of the genre. {ssintrepid}

4.0 out of 5 stars Good writing salvages mediocre story. Sept. 7 2003
This could very easily have degenerated into a cookiecutter DS9 story; all the standard elements were there: Bajoran terrorists from Kira's past, treacherous Cardassians, a threat to the existence of the station and the future of Bajor, scheming, greedy Ferrengi, and an overworked Sisko regretting that he hasn't time to spend with his son. There were a couple of new twists, such as a sympathetic look at a Cardassian, and we were missing the requisite appearance by the Prophets, but for the most part, there was nothing really new here.
Still, the writing was good enough to overcome that, at least for the most part. The story was a good read in spite of itself, and the characters were mostly well-handled, although Odo seemed a bit more cardboard than usual.
If you're looking for a novel and different DS9 plot, don't look for it here. But if you're looking for a competently executed rehashing of all the standard elements that make DS9 what it is, this is a fine example of the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bad follow up to other books March 13 2003
By Omni
Again the books were lost. Cardassian focus. Mixed crisises. Focus on a character that hadn't bene focused on in a book yet seemed to be the choice but in the end that didn't necessary mean it was a hood thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was good Jan. 23 2003
While the best Deep Space Nine book in my opinion is still "Fallen Heros", "Betrayal" also has its moments. Not for any specific plot reasons but its nice to see a book where Jake Sisko is not the dull eyed preadolsent and actually does something to contribute.
