Release Day! At long last: DS9 - Ascendance!

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Ascendance by David R. George III

Ever since the first phase of the Deep Space Nine relaunch came to an end in 2009, fans have asked one overriding question: what became of Iliana Ghemor and her Ascendant army? At the end of The Soul Key, her forces were poised to move on Bajor and wipe out the population, which the Ascendants saw as heretics. In Sacraments of Fire, we saw a bit of that story finally play out.

Now, at the dawn of 2016, we finally get the conclusion to that storyline with Ascendance by David R. George III!

Look below for the back-cover blurb and links to purchase from Amazon.





Publisher's description:
On the original Deep Space Nine, Captain Kira Nerys watches as the nearby wormhole opens and discharges a single, bladelike vessel. Attempts to contact its crew fail, and the ship is soon followed by another vessel of similar design. When an armada subsequently begins to emerge from the wormhole, it seems clear that DS9 is under attack. Kira orders her first officer, Commander Elias Vaughn, to board the USS Defiant and defend the station, and alerts Starfleet to send additional forces as her crew prepares DS9's shields and weaponry for the onslaught to come. 
Meanwhile, on the lead ship, Iliana Ghemor considers launching an attack on DS9 and finally ending the life of Kira, the fountainhead of all the ills in her miserable life. Her vengeance demands more than mere death, though – it requires pain. Ghemor refocuses, choosing to follow her plan to mete out her revenge on the captain by first decimating the population of Bajor...
