a nice review of Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Obsidian Alliances

Jim Arrowood has written a very nice review of the 2007 Star Trek: Mirror Universe trade paperback Obsidian Alliances, which includes three short novels dealing with the MU in Deep Space Nine (by "Sarah Shaw," a pseudonym for David Mack), New Frontier (by Peter David, natch), and Voyager (by me).

Money quote:
When one starts reading, it feels like the beginning of Voyager all over again, only in this universe, there is no Voyager crew and it is Neelix and Kes that are sent to the Alpha Quadrant of the galaxy, where the discovery of persons with telepathic abilities are highly sought after and prized. The Terran Resistance in the persons of Chakotay and Tuvok take on the task of keeping Kes out of the hands of the Klingon/Cardassian Alliance who would use her telepathic abilities to their advantage. Without spoiling the story too much, I will also say that the Janeway/Chakotay relationship that many fans would have liked to see in Voyager happens in DeCandido’s Mirror Universe, but there is a twist to it. As a matter of fact, this story is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing on what to expect next. A very clever story and one any Voyager aficionado will enjoy.
