Ha'Mara was great because it really showed how Kira got over not liking Sisko when he first came to Bajor.
The stories are set before, after, and during the series, and all are worth a read.

The "Misson: Gamma" series came out and sated appetites. "Rising Son" revealed what Opaka and Jake Sisko endured during the months of the aforementioned "Gamma" saga. And "Unity" still hasn't been released, so what is a fan of the continuing saga to do?
Purchase "Prophecy and Change," of course.
I was anticipating this release, and when I finally finished the last story, Andrew J. Robinson's "The Calling," which furthers Garak's character and has to be the best story of the bunch. I mean, this IS Garak, and as "A Stitch in Time" proved, no one knows the character better than the man behind the mask. I always chuckled at the dark humor behind Garak's oblique statements and rather droll yet bold declarations, and it's like you have an audio loop of Robinson delivering every line.
However, his is not the only story of note. The highlights of this anthology are Terri Osborne's tale of Jake and Ziyal's blossoming friendship during the Dominion's takeover of DS9; Keith R. A. DeCandido's "Broken Oaths" which finally ties the thread of "how and why did O'Brien and Bashir kiss and make up after 'Hippocratic Oath,'" a story that proves DeCandido is one of the best Trek authors to come down the pipeline in a very, very long time; Heather Jarman's "The Devil you Know" which allows us to catch up with T'Rul and empathize with her character, something we never had the opportunity to do in the series; and, finally, Andy Mangels and Michael Martin's tale of Kai Winn and Nog teaming up, the much-hyped story that pays off in the end, a story that explains why Nog had a desire to do something join Starfleet.

Format: Paperback
As I stated in my subject line, this book is the tour de force of Star Trek Deep Space Nine, revisiting the most complicated Star Trek series ever made and tying up loose ends.
The anthology consists of 10 short stories which go a little deeper into the story of Deep Space Nine, from 'Emissary' to 'What You Leave Behind', this book fills in all the blanks, all the loose ends (few that there were) from all 7 years of Deep Space Nine.
The authors are the 'newer' breed of Trek authors, mainly those that have come through the Strange New Worlds competition and written some of the DS9 relaunch books. If the stories from 'Prophecy and Change' and merely the 'early works' of these authors, then I shudder to think just how brilliant their writing will be when these men and women hit their prime.
The stories themselves are mastefully told, and are presented as stories being told by Jake to the young woman that came to see him in 'The Visitor', when Jake is an old man.
Each story is great, but the standouts are definitely 'Three Sides to Every Story', 'Foundlings', and 'Chiaroscuro'. Each of these stories are just brilliant, and cover the last 2 seasons of DS9, which was where the series really hit it's peak.
My only problem with this book was the last story, the Garak story by Andrew J. Robinson. I throughly enjoyed his previous work about Garak, entitled 'A Stitch in Time', but I did not enjoy his contribution to this book, entitled 'The Calling'. I found the story disjointed and at some points just plain confusing. Robinson made some reference to a play entitled 'The Dream Box' which I have never heard of. I'm guessing that this play is the step between 'A Stitch in Time' and 'The Calling', but I have never seen this play, so 'The Calling' was utterly confusing to me.

Format: Paperback
In celebration of Deep Space Nine's tenth anniversary Pocket Books newest anthology of stories "Prophecy and Change" takes the reader on a journey back to the characters and events of the series. It is a very pleasurable and mostly rewarding journey. Ten original stories are included in this lengthy collection from authors both familiar and new. Nine of those stories are set during the series, with only the final contribution being set post-finale. Each regular character has a chance to shine in at least one story, and many of the recurring characters as well.
As with any type of story anthology the writing styles vary, but each story has one thing in common--each succeeds in capturing the mood and atmosphere of Deep Space Nine. Some of the stories look at events set between episodes; others at changes the characters underwent that were never addressed onscreen and still others at unseen events set during specific episodes. Some stories answer questions others raise new ones. Just as the variety of beings who populated Deep Space Nine contributed to the gratifying experience of watching the series, the variety of stories in this volume make for a full and rich reading experience.
Ultimately, each individual who reads this anthology will form his or her own opinions about each story. There will be stories you will probably like or dislike based on your own tastes and preferences. Some may even love them all. I know that sometime in the future I will want to revisit this collection and it will be interesting to see if my favorites during my first read through this volume, "Broken Oaths", "Foundlings", "Face Value", "Ha'mara", "Three Sides to Every Story" and "The Orb of Opportunity" provide the same level of pleasure when read for a second or third time.
