The Never Ending Sacrifice details

On the Trek BBS Marco Palmieri has revealed the first details of next year's Cardassian focused novel The Never Ending Sacrifice:

On how the book ties into the DS9 relaunch and specifically Fearful Symmetry, where the in-universe book The Never-Ending Sacrifice was quite prominently referenced: "It's really just a happy coincidence. The references to TNES (which was first mentioned in DS9's "The Wire") in Fearful Symmetry predate the decision by Una to title her novel The Never Ending Sacrifice."

And on the setting: "It actually begins in Season 2 of Deep Space Nine, and continues through the current post-TV novels, moving some months beyond Fearful Symmetry and The Soul Key." "What I can tell you at this stage is that the decision to begin the story in Season 2 is not a random one, and that readers will learn for the first time what it was like to be on the ground on Cardassia in the years before, during, and after the Klingon invasion, the destruction of the Obsidian Order, the rise of Dukat as Union leader under the Dominion, the Dominion War itself, and the postwar years--all from the perspective of someone who isn't Garak."
