Book Description

The crew of the Starship Defiant is trapped in a future in which the Pah-wraiths have triumphed-as the greatest epic adventure in the saga of Deep Space 9™ continues....
In the last days of the twenty-fourth century, caught in the crossfire of the apocalyptic confrontation between the Bajoran Prophets and the Pah-wraiths, Captain Benjamin Sisko, and his crew face what might be the final millennium. On one side, the Pah-wraiths' new Emissary -- Kai Weyoun -- promises his followers that when Bajor's two Celestial -Temples are restored as one, all beings in the universe will ascend to a new and glorious existence with the True Prophets. On the other side, the scientists of Starfleet predict that when the two Bajoran wormholes merge, they will create a Warp 10 shock wave of infinite destructive power.
With the Federation on the brink of collapse, and Starfleet consumed by Admiral Jean-Luc Picard's obsessive quest to build the largest starship ever conceived, Sisko enters the ultimate race against time for the biggest stakes of all -- the survival of the universe itself.

About the Author

Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens are the authors of more than thirty books, including numerous New York Times bestselling Star Trek novels. Their newest novel of suspense, Freefall, is a follow-up to their Los Angeles Times bestseller, Icefire, and is set against the political intrigue and historical conspiracy surrounding the next race to the Moon.

In keeping with their interest in both the reality of space exploration and the science fiction that helps inspire it, in 2003 Judith and Garfield were invited to join a NASA Space Policy Workshop for the development of NASA's new goals as put forth in the agency's 2004 Vision for Space Exploration. Then, for the 2004 television season, the couple joined the writing staff of Star Trek: Enterprise as executive story editors. For more information, please visit www.reeves-stevens.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Wow wow. Wow wow wow. March 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Well, so far, the Reeves-Stevens clan is definitely making me re-think my aversion to Star Trek books, mentioned in my review of "The Fall of Terok Nor". This second chapter of the "Millenium" trilogy is also a winner.
One of the most interesting things about the DS9 TV show was its ability to include the topics of faith, religion, spirituality and mysticism in the Star Trek universe, topics that were rarely touched upon in the original series and Next Generation. This book's primary focus is on those topics, which puts a fascinating spin on the events that unfold.
The second book brings on the titular "War of the Prophets", as the crew of the crippled Defiant, after witnessing the destruction of Deep Space Nine by a *second* wormhole at the end of the first book, finds itself in a distopian future (25 years ahead of the "real" Star Trek universe), with a Bajoran/Romulan-led Jihad consuming the entire galaxy. Starfleet is in tatters, humans, Klingons, Cardassians, and Founders are all but extinct. The leader of the Bajoran Ascendancy, Kai Weyoun (! ), is claiming he is the Emissary to the True Prophets (the Pah-Wraiths), and that Sisko's appearance heralds nothing less than the end of the universe itself. In the meantime, Captain Nog and Admiral Jean Luc Picard race against time and apocalypse, embarking on an extremely dangerous plan to change the past without destroying the present ... or the future.
Whew! This book had a LOT to keep track of, with no less than four major plotlines interweaving with each other, as well as numerous side plots or character asides to keep things interesting. Yet the story never gets unwieldy, even though I felt I was being propelled at warp speeds through the action.

After reading the first 2 books of this 3 book set, I can't wait for the 3rd and final book! This is a marvel at combining all of our usual suspects in book one - The Fall of Terok Nor and then changing all of the rules in a wild and new universe in book two - The War of the Prophets. We see how people and ideals can change in a relatively short period of time for our DS9 stars and for others in the Star Trek universe. I have always hoped there would be books of this depth, length and crossover while reading every book that comes out every month. These make you think, dream and hope, while never following a set easy ending. I loved the way all of the characters interact, follow their usual ways, but bring a little more to the table than normal. I hope more authors follow this plan and are given the latitude by their publishers, whether it is DS9, STNG, or Voyager (which really needs to punched up like these book do for DS9). Thanks for the opportunity to comment. PHW

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dark and Interesting Look at Deep Space Nine March 11, 2000
Format:Paperback
War of the Prophets is a GREAT book. Of course, the Fall of Terok Nor was a mystery, romance, religous look of a book. The War of the Prophets is a great, CROSSOVER type book. You have the Defiant crew trapped not in the past but 25 years in the future! Starfleet is involved in a religous war involving Bajor. The Enterprise-E destroyed and a new Enterprise still exist but without Picard for hes at Utopia Planita with Nog. Kassidy killed. The Founders, humans, and Klingons gone. The Borg have an alliance with the Federation due to Seven of Nine and the EMH; Voyager returned home and everyone from Voyager seems to be an Admiral; Seven, EMH, Janeway. This is a great book... all the DS9 regulars are in it. It even holds some truth in how Kai Winn departs... Dukat is in it too. With all these characters involved in one war effort to destroy Bajor, you will defently want to read it. Buy it!

Star Trek Deep Space Nine Millennium Book II of III The War of the Prophets
Simply put, Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens have with this trilogy written one of the best Star Trek Deep Space Nine stories in print up to the point of Millennium's release date(s). This is truly a story that will stand the test of time. In Book I, The Fall of Terok Nor, the authors set up a very well written and fluid premise that they've continued to expound upon here in The War of the Prophets. The concepts and ideas that the authors infused into this exceptional Star Trek Deep Space Nine story are nothing short of spectacular. It is quite refreshing to read a story written by authors who are also fans who watch the shows and keep up with the details, major or minor.
The premise:
At the conclusion of Book I, The Fall of Terok Nor, Captain Sisko and crew inadvertently brought together the three Red Orbs of Jalbador causing the destruction of Deep Space Nine and the creation of a second, red wormhole or temple to open up in Bajoran space. In a desperate attempt to save as many lives as possible during the destruction of the station, Sisko orders Deep Space Nine abandoned. He finds himself; his senior staff, his son, Garak, Vash, Quark and Rom are all aboard the Defiant. While desperately trying to save as many lives as possible and get the Defiant away from the newly forming wormhole, his ship is fired upon by Leej Terrell, one of the few remaining Cardassians from the Obsidian Order who has been searching for the Red Orbs for years only to be foiled by Captain Sisko. The Defiant is forced into the event horizon of the newly formed wormhole and slung into the future...

More About the Author

IN THE WORLD OF PUBLISHING, Judith and Garfield are New York Times bestselling writers whose novel, ICEFIRE, was praised by Stephen King as "a hardwired, totally riveting, dare-you-to-put-it-down story of disaster, heroism, and suspense. There's no need for techno-thriller fans to wait for the next Clancy or Coonts; ICEFIRE is the best suspense novel of its type since THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER." Judith and Garfield conducted some of their research for ICEFIRE during an expedition to Antarctica on assignment for Microsoft's "Wild Lit" series of adventure-travel articles for the Internet. Among the eleven other bestselling authors selected by Microsoft for this series were Amy Tan, Clive Cussler, Tom Robbins, Ed McBain, Tama Janowitz, and Nelson DeMille.

Their newest book, WRAITH, is a chilling tale of rogue technology and supernatural suspense, revealing how classified government research into remote viewing has spawned a terrifying new form of warfare: Ghosts have been weaponized. WRAITH will be published in Spring, 2013, by Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin's Press.

Their previous novel from Thomas Dunne Books was SEARCH, a novel of "forbidden history," featuring the writing team's unique blend of cutting-edge science and unrelenting suspense in a breathtaking race to uncover the secret origins of human civilization. Publishers Weekly said, "This fine archeaological quest novel smoothly blends a fast-moving fantasy plot with a solid scientific backdrop... Smart, suspenseful writing and a clever concept add up to a compelling read."

Judith and Garfield are also among the Star Trek franchise's biggest-selling original book writers, and their novel, FEDERATION, is one of the top-selling original Star Trek novels ever published. Well-known to Star Trek fans, the couple appear in the supplementary DVD material that accompanies the release of Robert Wise's director's edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the collector's edition of Star Trek: Nemesis, the season-four set of Star Trek: Enterprise, as well as the DVD releases of Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation 20th Anniversary Collection, the "remastered" high-definition sets of the original Star Trek series, and the season-two "remastered" high-definition set of The Next Generation. They also provided commentaries for the Blu-Ray editions of Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek: The Final Frontier, as well as appearing in a series of four commercials promoting The Next Generation in syndication (available at their website).

In addition to five other Star Trek novels and four acclaimed nonfiction volumes chronicling the franchise's production history, Judith and Garfield are William Shatner's co-writers for an ongoing bestselling series of novels based on the character of Captain Kirk. Their tenth novel with William Shatner, STAR TREK: ACADEMY - COLLISION COURSE, tells the story of how teenage Kirk and Spock first met and entered Starfleet Academy.

Judith and Garfield are also television writer/producers, creators of the new sci-fi series PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD, and have worked with NASA and the Walt Disney Imagineers. Their complete bio and credits list can be found on their website, www.reeves-stevens.com.
