In general: mother of god, I officially want DRG to become to DS9 what Kirsten Beyer is to Voyager. This man gets it. There were things I was sad about, times I wanted to throw the book across the room because of what certain characters were doing (somebody upthread mentioned "screaming at the screen"), but this book is fantastic.
There's a couple of different reasaons for screaming at the screen, in briefly, because the characters are doing things they wouldn't because they're being badly written, or because characters are doing things that they normally would even though we the reader don't want them to. Here, my screaming at the page was triggered by the second of these.
