Not the best DS9 book, but...

there is much to like about it. I especially enjoy just being able to see Sisko & Kasidy together again. George writes their relationship in a way that seems natural, more so than Bashir and Ezri's or even Bashir and Sarina's interactions. There are some surprises at...
there is much to like about it. I especially enjoy just being able to see Sisko & Kasidy together again. George writes their relationship in a way that seems natural, more so than Bashir and Ezri's or even Bashir and Sarina's interactions. There are some surprises at the end of the book. Kira's storyline is confusing, especially at the end...how is it that one character, whether a vision from the Prophets or someone from Bajor's past, ends up in the present? But I'm sure it will be explained in future books. In fact, it makes me hopeful that we will see some more development with the DS9 crew that doesn't depend so heavily on the Typhon Pact and maybe we'll see the continuation of the Ascendents storyline that was unfortunately cut short due to the decision to fast-forward DS9 books to keep pace with the rest of the TNG era. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy Plagues of Night and (especially) Raise the Dawn, and look forward to the other books in this miniseries, but I do miss the style and intrigue of DS9 pre-Destiny trilogy when new revelations were more DS9-centric (i.e. Iliana Ghemor, Mirror Universe, Kira and Sisko reaching new understandings of their relationships with the Prophets,etc).
Still, I've seen a couple reviews on Amazon that gave this book only three stars and while I agree that parts of the book are a bit slow and lacking the excitement of Raise the Dawn, I still feel the book deserves better than three stars. If nothing else, seeing a little bit more normalcy and camaraderie between the crew is a welcome change of pace than the constant doom & gloom we've been seeing for some time, not to mention necessary if you want to keep the characters more real and the story more down-to-earth. If you haven't already bought the book and are on the fence on whether to read it or not, I say read it. It's a fine book, with more emphasis on character development. It does pave the way for more to follow, but just be aware this is not the Earth shattering novel it's been hyped up to be. Once you realize that, accept it and enjoy it for what it is.
