David R George produces reliably complex enjoyable DS9 fiction. This book was enjoyable from beginning to end. Felt like coming home to DS9 & Bajor for some hasperat with some Raktijino photon torpedo's & adventures in subspace with the emissary!
Other reviewers had mentioned not enjoying the flashbacks, I for one love them, they're like catching up with old friends for me I'd read them even as a separate book. I love the progression of these DS9 characters and the depth the trek fiction team has given them post Dominion War. Other reviewers mentioned missing certain DS9 characters in this book, do not fear some of those characters got their own books too earlier this year with Odo coming later this fall to be featured in his own short story novella. Unlike TOS or TNG fiction, DS9 & VOY are a continuing series that do not adhere to the episodic format we see with TOS TNG TV & fiction ie enterprise encounters alien or spacial phenomenon, they work it out in the nick of time the end. This is not that and for that I'm thankful, we get a deeper story. The progressive format to me that adds a great deal to the stories and the characters yet maybe off putting to those just picking up and not having read the others in this series. If that's you I recommend these DS9 books (all of them) and this particular book anyways, you've got to start somewhere and surprise Cpt Sisko is no longer with the Prophets, you'll greatly enjoy this. You can find the books in order on Wikipedia's deep space 9 book's page. There's a reason David George has written so many Trek books, he gets it he understands the characters the history and keeps the reader interested from the first chapter to the last.
I have no complaints about the story. I always figured Rebecca would have some kind of power being the Emissary's daughter. No one know about it, even Becky doesn't understand what she can do. I'm looking forward to reading how this power becomes known & used.
The book echoes the structure of a traditional television episode, with an "A" and "B" story, one told in flashback. We have a nice mix of a first contact and a kidnapping/mystery. Fortunately the first contact scenario that did not end in a stock way.
The flash backs were well executed and interesting, building up Rebecca Sisko as the Avatar, and I'm a huge Sisko fan, so not much to complain there,maybe a bit 2 dimensional characterization,but then again...
A recommended book if you like Sisko,but even though I really liked it, I would not consider it essential.
