||I am just so into the Mirror Universe. It gives Star Trek the chance to let its hair down a bit, have some fun with its characters and tell whole new stories unrestricted by too much canon. The Mirror Universe series has done this really well so far and is a great read. Part 1 is Voyager-based and puts an interesting spin on the often-debated question of Mirror Voyager by having the Caretaker's Array work in reverse and propel Neelix and Kes into the Alpha Quadrant. Many of the characters shine but Harry Kim is a standout as the toughest borderline psycho since Mirror Reed. It is the strongest part of the book and tells a really gripping yarn. Part 2 is based on New Worlds and features a rather different path for Mackenzie Calhoun. I haven't read any New Worlds but enjoyed the story anyway. Part 3 is the latest instalment of Mirror DS9, following on from the last Mirror episode of the TV series. It is pretty solid and very entertaining but feels more like an episode and further episodes are clearly planned. I took off a mark for the quality of writing, which is at times a little sloppy. Also I would strongly recommend reading Glass Empires first, as this book refers frequently to Spock's Terran Republic, which is covered in that book. This book moves the many strands of the Terran rebellion forward one step; I am looking forward to the next instalment.
